Qwest, Live ID and One Care RRS feed

  • Question


    I recently switched my internet provider from Qwest to Comcast.  When I did this I started getting a message from OneCare that my subscription needs to be renewed.


    I purchased OneCare from a retail store approximately 2 months ago so the subscription should be good for at least 10 more months.


    I believe that my email account, sonoserv@msn.com, is somehow directly tied to Qwest.  I need to be able to keep this email account, also my Live ID account, and continue to use it for OneCare and other Live products.


    Can you help me?

  • If you canceled your Qwest service and your @msn account was tied to the Qwest service, they have canceled your accounts with the LiveID - despite the fact that you paid for OneCare and were not using the partner deal.

    I doubt that Qwest can help and I'm hopeful that you can get help from OneCare support. Note that your @msn email is fine as it has reverted to a free Hotmail account from a "paid" premium account. The LiveID remians yours and is not affected. However, your OneCare subscription was likely terminated by Qwest.

    Unofficial path - send me an email at sboots@mvps.org with a subject line including "OneCare" (to get past my spam filtering) and in the message body, tell me what country you are in, your forum nickname, and paste this link: http://forums.microsoft.com/WindowsOneCare/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=3836755&SiteID=2.

    I am not online 24x7, so you may be waiting for a reply, but I'll do my best to hook you up with support.
