It’s a little easier than it used to be to change your cable or satellite provider, but you might be wondering if you can keep your Centurylink email account if you do so.
When you sign up for a package with a broadband provider, they will typically provide you a free email account. However, some companies may destroy your email account if you opt to break your contract, while others will let you keep it but charge you a monthly or annual cost. Your email address can be considered to legally belong to Centurylink if it contains any proprietary links to the company. Furthermore, why would you want to maintain their address if you were unhappy with their service if you were switching cable or satellite providers? If the reason is that you don’t want to update all of your email contacts on the change of address, it might make a little sense in the short term, but it will ultimately be a hassle.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to use that email address after your service provider changes. Your email address also expires when you close an account. No provider will forward your emails once you’ve canceled your account with them, even if you set up your emails to be forwarded to another email address. Helping you after you’ve left their service isn’t even in their best interest. The best course of action is to obtain a portable email address from a service like Gmail, Outlook.com, Yahoo, or another similar provider, and set up email forwarding from your old email address to your new one before closing your account. This will make things simpler and prevent you from losing any email contacts or information, but it will need you to manually update these accounts online. In order to find out whether businesses and people are still using your previous email address, you can set up filters in your new Gmail account to automatically display the email address forward from your old account.
HOW CAN YOU DELETE YOUR CENTURYLINK ACCOUNT
Once you begin using Centurylink’s internet service, you will receive 10 personalized email addresses. You are not required to use this email address as your main email account, though. Additionally, it takes only a few simple steps to delete your Centurylink email account.

- Select the email by clicking the down arrow next to it. Scroll down and select “Remove user icon.”
- Click the “Delete symbol” after Centurylink demands that you validate the email you’ve chosen.
- To cancel your request, click the “Cancel” button.
- When you remove your Centurylink email account, all of the emails, contact lists, and personal preferences associated with it are also deleted.
WHAT TO a wait WHEN YOU CANCEL YOUR CENTURYLINK ACCOUNT ?
You will shortly get a final bill or closing statement from Centurylink that will include any unpaid balances once you discontinue your account. Also, before your account is fully terminated, you can get multiple of these bills.
A final charge will be sent to you on the day of your subsequent regular monthly invoicing after you have terminated your Centurylink services. This will show every payment you must make for your final month of service. Keep in mind that since most Centurylink services are billed on a monthly basis, your monthly bill will not alter if you cancel the services before the due date.
You will receive this bill if there are any outstanding fees that weren’t covered by the final bill, such as fees for equipment you rented from Centurylink but haven’t returned after 30 days, unpaid long distance fees, or fees for combined billing. This bill was sent to you on the following billing date despite the fact that you had your subscription terminated.
Second amended final legislation
If you have paid all of your outstanding payments, you most likely won’t get this bill. There can be some hiccups, though, and you might get this charge.
HOW YOU CAN SPEED UP CLOSING YOUR ACCOUNT ?
It may take up to 1 or 2 billing cycles before your account is completely canceled due to your monthly payment cycle and the use of numerous processing systems. You must settle all past-due accounts as soon as you are billed, and you must return all leased property right away if you want things to move quickly. This will lessen the likelihood that you will receive any further invoices, and you won’t have to worry about paying for equipment that hasn’t been returned.
You can quickly and easily leave your present service provider now that you are aware of how to keep your account and what to do if you are unable to.
