Under the carrier line in About Phone if you tap on Carrier on a Verizon IPhone 6S a line called NAI pops up and is your mobile number @vzims.com or @vzw3g.com. What does this mean and what is this used for? The PRL, and Voice and IMS are also displayed after you click on carrier too find this information.

[doublepost=1501981058][/doublepost]This shows me how too configure that if I was a sprint customer and I could go on there and play around too see what the functions of this is, but I’m on Verizon so that will not be an option.

In short:
In order to provide roaming services, it is necessary to have a
standardized method for identifying users. This document defines the
syntax for the Network Access Identifier (NAI), the user identity
submitted by the client during network authentication. "Roaming" may
be loosely defined as the ability to use any one of multiple Internet
Service Providers (ISPs), while maintaining a formal, customer-vendor
relationship with only one. Examples of where roaming capabilities
might be required include ISP "confederations" and ISP-provided
corporate network access support.
