Whether you’ve changed your phone number or want to use a different number in your account, Amazon makes changing phone numbers in your account as easy as changing your password. We’ll show you how to do this from your desktop and mobile phone.
When you change the phone number, Amazon sends a verification code to the new number. You must enter this code on the Amazon site or Amazon app (whatever you use to complete the process) to confirm that the number is yours.
