Here is a step-by-step guide to help you create an account for Verizon.com MyVerizon.
MyVerizon service is available on Verizon.com as well as VerizonWireless.com. You can choose from either one to start your journey with Verizon.com MyVerizon.
I assume that you chose to visit Verizon.com rather than VerizonWireless.com. Below the login area which asks for a user ID and the service for which you wish to login, there is link Register for My Verizon.
After clicking on that you will be prompted to select between wireless and residential service. You can select any one depending on the service you’re using and click on Continue.
The click will direct you to the MyVerizon Registration form. If you have a Verizon home telephone number, you can use it for registration. Enter your phone number in the appropriate text box. Then fill any text box from Last Bill Amount, Last Payment Amount or Verizon Account Number. Click on continue. If you don’t have a Verizon home telephone number, you can also register simply with your Verizon account number and ZIP code. The next page will ask you to fill some optional fields. Choose a username and password, and you are done with MyVerizon registration.
