I'm trying to get my old verizon.net email back. I do not plan on getting internet/phone service. Is there anything else I can get/pay to get email service back?
If you let it lapse you can not get the same email id back. However verizon is switching everyone over to AOL email anyway (keeping the old email address for those who don't let it lapse). Its free for the basic email service.
In the meantime if you did not let it lapse you should still be able to logon to verizon mail. And it will remain free if you are able to do so.
