What happened to My Circle®?
After your Alltel service transitions to Verizon Wireless, My Circle will be known as Friends & Family®. Nothing is changing about this feature you love, only the name. You still have the same number of Friends & Family numbers and can choose wireless or landline numbers on any network to call anytime, as often as you like. Manage your Friends & Family numbers on My Verizon.Back to top
Will I still receive a My Circle® Bonus number every two years that I’m on a qualified plan?
