Get a real email account from Verizon, it should come with the account.
It's not a real internet connection as Verizon is not my ISP as they would be with a DSL or FIOS account. It is a data connection that is tied to my phone number. My internet comes from tethering my phone to my computer. I have checked and I don't have a Verizon email account. Just the Google account that came with the phone. In fact, it was a requirement to activate the phone. It is truly the only email account that I have. I can't get a non-free email without setting up an ISP to my house. Like I said before, my only option in that realm is dial-up. I would love to have dsl or cable if it was available. Satellite is out of my price range.
Any help in this matter is appreciated.
