Using the Online Chat

  1. 1

    Navigate to the live chat section on Verizon's support page. A live chat is like a text conversation between you and a Verizon support agent. You can talk with each other about any issues you may have, whether it be an account issue, a Verizon phone problem, or anything in between.

  2. 2

    Sign in to your Verizon account. Under the 'Live Chat' section the website will ask you to sign in with your Mobile Number (or user ID) and password. If you don't have an account with Verizon or you have forgotten your details, the pop-up box provides you with helpful links to help you out.[7]

  3. 3

    Chat with a Verizon agent through the chat box to resolve your problem. You will see a chat box after signing in. Here, you will be able to talk with a Verizon agent who will help you resolve the particular issue you have. The agent will usually greet you and ask what your issue is. Type the problem you'd like fixed as clearly as possible then press 'Send'.[8]

  4. 4

    Provide all details asked of you. The agent will likely ask for your date of birth, your phone number and a security question. Politely and carefully type out your issue so that the support agent on the other side will be able to understand the issue.[9]

    • The solution for your problem will depend on the issue. If it's something small, the support agent may be able to solve it directly in the live chat. If it's more complicated than that, they may provide you with a guide to fixing your problem or they may direct you to your nearest Verizon store.

Trying Alternative Methods of Support

  1. 1

    Use Facebook to ask Verizon a question. Go to the Verizon support page ( and scroll down near the bottom where a black text box says 'Facebook Messenger'. Click this link. This will open a new window, prompting you to sign into your Facebook account. Once you do so, you will be able to send Verizon a direct message containing your question.[10]

    • You can ask Verizon almost anything and they will do their best to solve your issue. It can be about Verizon products, account questions, or troubleshooting. However, it is best not to divulge sensitive information over social media.
  2. 2

    Try Twitter to get a shorter response. Once you log in to your twitter account, tag Verizon Wireless CS (@VZWSupport) in a tweet containing your question. This will notify the Verizon Support account team of your tweet. After a short wait they will reply to the tweet and try to help however they can.[11]

    • As Twitter is limited to 140 characters, Twitter would work best for questions that can be answered succinctly.
  3. 3

    Send Verizon a letter. If you prefer, you can also send Verizon a letter. Package your letter in a well-sealed envelope with a stamp then write the following address (each new sentence representing a new line of the address on the front of the letter) onto the front: Verizon Wireless. Correspondence.P.O. Box 291089. Columbia, SC 29229.[12]

    • Although a letter isn't the fastest way to get in touch with Verizon, you can still ask any question relating to your Verizon service.
  4. 4

    Consult the Verizon Support forums for a question you have. Verizon Support also has a vibrant forum full of fellow users that you can use to find answers to questions. Search through the threads on the forum or make your own to ask whatever question you might have. Another user who knows the answer to your question or a Verizon representative should answer your question soon after.[13]
