From monitoring your monthly usage to making sure you’ve paid your bill, knowing how to check your Verizon Wireless account is a useful skill you’ll use regularly. Verizon Wireless makes it very easy to check your account through several different methods. Use your computer, your phone, or even send a text to get any information you need, to change your plan, to upgrade your phone, and more. Just choose the method that works best for you, and you can check your Verizon account at almost any time.
To check your Verizon Wireless account, you’ll need
