My optusnet email address

Hello, I currently have a mobile phone account ($35 My Plan Plus) & a mobile broadband account (My MBB Plus 12GB) which I use for my laptop, my phone acc. is on the 4G network & my MBB is on the 3G network.
When I started up my MBB acc. (2010) I also received an Optusnet Email address.
My question is this, if I was to cancel my MBB acount, due to the house being put on  ADSL(?) with WiFi through another IP provider (hey, it aint my house, & the landline's been with the same company since the '70s, & it's not my... call) would this mean that I lose my Optusnet Email address, which would me a major pain, or am I allowed to keep the address with my mobile phone account?
The mobile phone account is staying with Optus.

Re: My optusnet email address

Hi @driver

 

Yes, once the mbb has been cancelled the email will be cancelled as well. The good thing though is you have a lot of options to keep it. You can ask them to put a t90 request to reserve it for 3 months first before cancelling the dsl service then you can buy a $2 prepaid mbb sim and recharge it with the minimum amount before the number expires which is 6 months, you can also get a data sharing sim, not sure how much it cost though and you'll get addl data to share on your mobile and you can keep the email as well.

Re: My optusnet email address

Hi @Beyms, I had a feeling I already knew the answer but as you say, there are options.
The bummer is my Hotmail acc. is for social & my Optusnet is for business etc. & I couldn't be ****** (bothered) trawling through every contact to deal with it.
Thanks for the reply, I'll optionate during the week... it all smells like a first world problem to me.  Smiley Wink
Cheers!
