Call 611 & tell them the name that you want it changed to. If you have a family plan, the primary account holder must be the one making the call. The change might make a few days to take effect.

Your question is not clear. What exactly do you want to change?

  • The name that will be displayed when you call others?
  • The name that is displayed when a particular person calls you?
  • Something else?

Thanks. I am trying to change what is displayed when I call others...

Thank you!

Just FYI, there is a "company" that carriers deal with that controls the caller ID associated with your number.  Recently people were getting the name of an Auto supply store when I called, and it seems my number had reverted back to the prior owner's ID.  Though T-Mo changed it for me, some computer-based, land line phones that first received a call from me with the Auto Store name, refuse to recognize the change back to my correct name.
