S/he lied.  Verizon has no email without DSL or FIOS. AOL has that kind of thing, but you wouldn't want to go there.

Hi Patlamb,

 

You can surely go ahead and keep your E-mail addresss while cancelling your internet services.

With Verizon you would have 2 E-mail address listed below

 

1>Verizon.net e-mail address

2>AOL/MSN/YAHOO E-MAIL ADDRESS

 

1> If you want Verizon.net E-mail address you just need to sigup for Verizon domain at http://surround.verizon.net/Shop/Utilities/VerizonYourDomain.aspx  for $19.95/year.

 

2>If you want AOL/MSN/Yahoo e-mail address woth you new service provider you need to check www.trueswitch.com for futher information.

 

 

Also we also you can downgrade the DSL to a low cost dail-up upto $9.99/month to secure the Same e-mail address.

 

 

Thanks

Is there a grace period to retrieve my old e-mail account via these methods after the associated Verizon data account is cancelled?

Hello,

 

You can have your E-mail address,however if there are Emails stored in your E-mail box on the server,that would be deleted.

wouldn't it be cheaper to get verizon internet security  or games on demand or teh back up and sharing for 6 bux and under, vs getting a full domain name, which is giving them not only their Verizon.net email but in addition giving them a 'yourname@yourname.com' styled email?

 

so instead of paying 19.99 a month, you can get a standard service like verizon internet security or games on demand for like 6-10 bux?
