It's really weird, tried to find my account and pin number to  port out my Verizon prepaid number to l tracfone I literally couldn't find it anymore.

 Anyone do this recently which can enlighten me on where to find the account pin and passcode?
It's in the account settings (https://myvprepay.verizon.com/prepaid/ui/mobile/index.html?#/user/settingsScreen)

PSA You can get additional discount on Verizon plans if an Account Manager is an First Responder or Teacher. Not the Account Owner, the Account Manager and anybody can be set up as a manager, even someone not on your plan.

How do you set that up? Do you get double discount if account manager is a teacher and a first responder?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Don't think you can get both. Its probably easier if you set one of the lines as belonging to the First Reponder or teacher and set them up a profile.  ID is through ID.me

That would require a new phone. He's using a Verizon branded phone.
 Dp-it's not for me.
 Yes I'm on Tmobile.

LOL, you meant it as a joke. I think 3 service providers is enough at the moment. 
 He's kind of a clown, he comes to me the last day of the month when service is about to expire, and I tried porting it to tracfone for him.  Though the Verizon prepaid plan has an A in the beginning of the account number,  And when putting in all the information online track one doesn't allow for you to put in alpha digits, only numbers. So  Like suspected it wouldn't port properly.

If you get a subsidized iPhone with Verizon, can you swap it out with another phone and use the Verizon phone with another carrier? (My understanding is that Verizon only locks their phones for 60 from purchase. Assuming that is correct, will they continue to subsidize the phone even though it is not being used on Verizon.)
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Thanks!

A family member lives in Canada but comes to the US frequently. Is there a maximum of how many days a line can be used in Mexico & Canada? Alternatively, is there a way to activate their plan only when they are in the US (3-5 times a year)?

i think if you have unlimited data then Canada is included in that so there would be no limit

Canada is included but I vaguely recall there being some kind of limit on how many days you can spend outside the US. Anyone aware of this?

Yes I also remember most of the usage in a 30 or 60 day period needs to be in the US or something like that.
But looking at Verizon website now seems to have this limitation:

Quote
All plans include:
Mexico & Canada talk text & data>
Talk, text and use unlimited data when traveling in Mexico and Canada. International data changes to 3G speeds after first 2GB/day. Also includes Unlimited talk and text to Mexico and Canada when you are in the US.

https://www.verizon.com/plans/unlimited/



Found the 60 day thing on the old unlimited page that says the plan is no longer available, not sure if the language is no longer on the page it's not relevant?
Quote
What if I use too much talk text data in Canada & Mexico>
If more than 50% of your talk, text and data usage in a 60-day period is in Canada or Mexico we may limit your service in those countries or remove it. If you plan to use a lot of talk, text and data in Canada or Mexico check out an International Travel plan.

Can you have two lines on the same phone and use them at the same time? Physical sim and e-sim?.
Only on DDF does 24/6 mean 24/5/half/half
