To add an additional line to your Verizon account, you'll need to purchase a new phone or register an existing device, and then choose a phone number to use with your service. Verizon Wireless allows you to port, or transfer, a number from an existing carrier, or choose your own number from a list of available area and exchange codes. If you intend to transfer your phone number, make sure not to cancel your service with your other carrier until Verizon has activated your new line.

Step 1

Sign in to your account (link in Resources) and then select "Add New Device" from the My Verizon menu.

Step 2

Scroll through the list of available phones to locate the device you want to add to your account.

Step 3

Click "Add to Cart" and then choose "No, Continue to Plans" from the pop-up menu.

Step 4

Select the service plan you want to use and then click "Add to Cart." Choose any add-ons or coverage plans from the options and then click "Add to Cart."

Step 5

Click "Continue to Review Cart" to see the devices and services you selected to purchase.

Step 6

Choose your shipping options and then click "Checkout" to confirm. Enter your billing and shipping information into the available fields.

Step 7

Select "I Want a New Number," and then choose the preferred area and exchange codes from the associated drop-down menu.

Step 8

Click "Continue to Payment Info" and then follow the remaining on-screen prompts to complete checkout. After you close out your order, you'll receive a confirmation email summarizing your purchase.


  • If you already have a device you want to use for the new line of service, select "I Already Have a Device" from the top of the page after clicking "Add New Device." Turn off the device, and remove the back cover and battery. Locate the MEID, ESN or IMEI number on the product label. Type one of these numbers into the available field and then click "Submit" to register the phone.

  • If you want to port an existing phone number to your new device, select "Transfer Number from Another Carrier" instead of "I Want a New Number" and then fill out the form with your account information.
