Verizon Wireless gives its customers multiple choices to help customize their devices and accounts. Besides taking care of our Verizon needs in their corporate stores or the neighbourhood, we can also operate the account online using myverizon.com or using few mobile codes. By using the different phone hotkeys, we can access multitude of options – from paying the bills to looking up for an upgrade. In this article you will learn how to manage your Verizon Account and pay Verizon bill by phone.
Basically, five shortcuts of Verizon are there which help us in customizing our account. Each shortcut requires dialling a certain number preceded by the pound sign which will ask Verizon to text us facts and figures regarding our account.
Following are the shortcuts:

Dial #MIN (#646)

This comprises account-level and device-level data distribution of minutes of the device from which we are calling. This data also informs us about the minute usage that resets after our existing billing cycle terminates.
Checking Verizon Data Usage form Phone:
Dial #DATA (#3282)

This shortcut prompts Verizon to send data of account-level and device-level data distribution of minutes of the device from which we are calling. This data also informs us about the minute usage that resets after our existing billing cycle finishes. Along with that shortcut key provides us with figures related to the text messages sent and received during our billing cycle.
