Until recently I had a broadband account with Optus on cable. I had to cancel that due to Optus shutting down their cable network.
Anyway, with that broadband account I had an email address. I read somewhere that the email will continue for three months after the broadband account closed. Is that the case? Also, I have two mobiles with Optus. My other question then, is having the mobile accounts enough to keep the email address active?
Some time back many questions were asked about retaining an Optus email address when a fixed or wireless broadband service it was originally created with was closed. It was my understanding at the time that you needed to maintain a minimum service to keep your email account alive and this service had to be post-paid data service. Whilst that may have been the correct answer at the time I do recall an Optus staff member saying that you can now transfer your email address to a mobile phone service and I believe that was a post-paid service. I will try and find that information and will post it to this thread.
Edit: Have a look at the link below as the second part of your question has been rasied in this post as well.
