If you are wondering how to keep your sbcglobal primary email after canceling AT&T DSL service, that’s actually possible. All you will need to do is to unmerge the email account from AT&T, but this should be done before canceling the service. Once you unmerge you can be able to use your email with the sbcglobal.net domain using the yahoo mail att.net login page. The login page is found at this url https://login.yahoo.com/config/login_verify2?.partner=sbc, where you can enter your sbcglobal.net’s username or user id and password in the fields provided for each respectively.
After the process of unmerging your att.net email from the service, you remain with a free email account for sbcglobal.net domain, with yahoo hosting it. You will be able to use that to continue receiving all your emails and performing other email tasks as usual. The process of unmerging detaches your sbcglobal.net login credentials from AT&T’s system, so that you do not have to lose access upon canceling the DSL service.
If you do not unmerge your email account from AT&T, you are forced to continue making monthly payments in order to keep your email. That for most people is an issue given the fact that all the emails are being received via yahoo mail, an email service similar to Google’s Gmail and Microsoft’s Outlook that many users access for free. If you cancel and are not paying for the DSL service anymore, you probably wouldn’t want to be left with only an email service to pay for. If you are like many people who have for many years used the sbcglobal.net email, you would definitely want to continue using that for free since it’s accessed through yahoo mail login anyway.
Although many people ask how they can get back their old sbcglobal.net email after canceling AT&T DSL, it is very important to note that you shouldn’t cancel the service before unmerging it from the email. If you do that what happens is that when you attempt to login will be denied access. The error message will notify you that you can’t access your AT&T yahoo account, and the reason given is the suspension of your AT&T yahoo internet services. You will then be advised to create a new yahoo email where you can transfer all your information including personal email messages, contacts, photos and settings. That process can as well result to other issues, but in any case you may not want to abandon your sbcglobal.net email that you have used for years only to get a new yahoo email. So simply unmerge your old email from the DSL service and keep that ancient email domain.
