Did you try to access your Verizon email account through Verizon.net? The information is that users of Verizon email can now login to their Verizon.net email accounts through AOL email. What does this mean? It means that all those who formerly created an email account with Verizon.net have been moved to another email platform.
Why did Verizon.net move their email service to AOL?
They moved to aol because they want the best for their valued customers. They want to give sufficient Verizon.net email login service to their subscribers. In other words, they wanted to concentrated on the one they have comparative advantage over their competitors.
According to the Verizon.net email support team, they have discovered many other better email providers. Those email providers have better services to offer to the public. Therefore, they have decided to withdraw from email services and focus on providing the best internet TV experience.
Verizon offers largely, wireless services. In other words, it offers internet services to homes, organizations, groups and even to government. On that note, there is need to input all necessary resources to maintain the wireless services to the core.
Let’s not get something wrong here. It does not mean that Verizon sold their email customers to AOL. AOL is still owned by Verizon. So, email users are indirectly using Verizon email portal.
Do you think that’s a great idea by Verizon?
Anyway, it depends on individual views. But, I think that is a great decision. It is better to be a master of one service provision than to be Jack of all trade, master of none.
Where have Verizon email users been moved to?
In 2017, when Verizon made the shift, they moved their email platform to AOL email. Therefore, if you have a Verizon.net email account, do well to login through AOL portal.
However, some moved their accounts to Yahoo email platforms. No problem. No need to worry about that. You can continue to use it there. Simply go to yahoo login page and login following the normal login procedure.
Does the shift to AOL email affect my Verizon wireless account?
No. the fact that you moved your account to aol does not mean that you have also moved your Verizon wireless account.
Let’s understand it well here. Verizon wireless account is different from Verizon email account. You can only have Verizon email account when you create a Verizon wireless account. So, you can still access your Verizon wireless account via Verizon.net portal. But you cannot access your email account via the same portal.
However, the only person that can access his Verizon.net email account is anyone who moved his account.
Wait, what about those who did not migrate their accounts to AOL?
It has been automatically deleted. Verizon announces that anyone who did not move his account from their database before 15th December, 2017 will lose his account. In other words, Verizon will delete such account automatically.
More so, the owner cannot access the account. He cannot also extract any data from there. In fact, he loses the account absolutely. This is because, Verizon does not want to keep customers’ data in their database for privacy purpose.
