How can I check my balance from my phone?
Can I check my minute usage on my Family SharePlan® from my phone?
Yes. Call #MIN (# 646) from your mobile phone. You’ll have the option to listen to the total Family SharePlan minute usage after hearing your individual usage. A second free text message will be sent to your phone with the minute usage for your Family SharePlan.
When I check my minute usage by dialing #MIN on my phone, how frequently is the information updated?
#MIN is an estimate of the minutes used since your last statement date. The estimate is typically updated within the last 24 hours. This estimate may not include usage outside your local calling area.
I checked my minute usage by dialing #MIN on my phone. When does this minute usage start over?
Your minutes start over at midnight of the last day of your billing period. To identify your billing period:
- Sign In to My Verizon.
- Select "My Bill."
- Look under the "Statement Summary" section to find the beginning and ending date of your billing period.
What are all of the ways to check my data usage?
#MIN, #BAL, #DATA or #PMT are only available when on the Verizon Wireless network while in Canada because these feature codes are Verizon Wireless specific and work only on a VZW mobile switch. VZW doesn't have coverage in Canada, in general. Also, while in the U.S., customers can only access the same feature codes while in a Verizon Wireless market.
