How do I update my telephone number that's associated with my AWS account?

I want to update my telephone number because my contact information has changed.


To change the AWS account telephone number and alternate contacts, sign in to your AWS account as the root user.

You can also use an AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) user to update the account telephone number and alternate contacts. The IAM user must have administrator access permission and access to the AWS Billing console.

Make sure that the telephone number has the correct international dialing code standard with no additional spaces or special characters. Also, remove any leading zeros after the country code. For example, the United Kingdom country code is +44. Enter the telephone number 07911 123456 as +447911123456 for the United Kingdom.

To update your phone number, complete the following steps:

  1. Log in to the AWS Billing and Cost Management console for the AWS account that you want to update.
  2. Next to Contact Information, choose Edit.
  3. Update the phone number.
    Important: Make sure that the phone number has the correct country code and no extra spaces.
  4. Choose Update.
