1st ensure that new domain is added under domains and trust as UPN

Then select all users and right click properties and from account tab change domain to required one

Not changing or adding or renaming a domain. No Trusts relationships either.
 Just want the users' domain to be different. john@companyB.com (instead of companyA.com)

Sam - I'll look into your suggestion.  Thanks!

That is what I am telling
I said, go to domain and trust MMC console and check if required domain is added there as UPN

after that you can change logon domain (UPN) with any available methods
