    How to change your phone number

    If you change your phone number, don’t create a new account. Instead, update your old account with the instructions below. If you create a new account, you could lose account info (including your star rating and total ride count).
    Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone numbers aren’t compatible with the Lyft Platform. Contact your service provider if you aren't sure what type of phone number you have.
