How do I change my name if I signed up with cell phone verification?

VarageSale accounts are verified two different ways. The first (and original way) is by creating an account connected to your existing Facebook account.  

This is how all VarageSale accounts were created prior to the middle of 2017.  Please  use this article to learn how to change your name on a Facebook verified account.  In mid-2017, we started testing an alternate method of signup where part of the verification process uses an SMS code sent to a cell phone.  This process is still currently in testing and is only available to a small percentage of randomly chosen new signups.   

If you created your VarageSale account by entering a cell phone number & verification code, here are the steps to change your name, if you are currently pending or denied in one community:
