Re: Disconcerting discovery with my plan

Thanks for the info! I've been considering, it's just all my e-mail addy's would need to change but I may bite the bullet.

To prevent this problem and future ones change your email addresses to one of the generic email providers, so if you change ISPs, you don't have to worry about changing email addresses. That's what most people do to make it easier to follow the cheaper rates!

You will not lose your email addresses when you leave AT&T; they will just convert to free Yahoo! Mail in the AT&T domain you currently have. I left AT&T nearly two years ago; I can still use my '@pacbell.net' email addresses.

Wow, even better news!
Sounds like my decision is a no-brainer at this point.
I'll wait for an AT&T response till Friday and if I'm not happy...
Thanks

The 'att.net' domain is available to non-AT&T customers through a
"generic email provider": Yahoo! Mail.

Despite leaving AT&T nearly two years ago, all of my 'pacbell.net' accounts still work through Yahoo! Mail.

All of the AT&T email domains will convert to Yahoo! Mail when the customer leaves AT&T service (unless they are canceled for non-payment).
