Hi,

Quick question. I am going to quit virgin but want to keep my @ntlworld email address.

Will it still work after i cancel my contract?

I really don't want to set up a new email because of the hassle of changing my details on many websites that have my details i.e paypal, amazon, play. I currently access it through outlook.

Thanks

Not sure about virgin, but when we left orange we had the email address for about a year afterwards, but only accessing through the website not outlook.

Think that you can pay so much each month to keep it, but not sure how much

Your mac code is for changing broadband provider not email.

Virgin must have changed rules when they took over

Not advisable to keep using it for purchasing, however.

A lesson to be learned here.
Never use email addresses tied to your ISP.
Go for gmail.

hi i used to work for virgin broadband support
no u will not be able to keep your email address

when your account is cancelled your email address will be cancelled also to allow anybody else to set it up
occasionaly the process wont complete fully and people still have access to the email
however its almost 100% that u will not have access to use anything my advice is if u are leaving transfer everything to different emails b4 ure final cancellation date
as others have said i recomend gmail
