Action Needed At Your End
If you are wondering that your email address will change because of this step from Verizon, then you are mistaken as Verizon has ensured that the Verizon.net will work while you try to login to your AOL account. However, while you try to login to AOL using the Verizon email then you will have to change your password and a new password has to be created which will be used in the future to login to the AOL account.
There is no way to recover your password of the Verizon email account if you have not migrated your Verizon email before April 1st of 2016. However, if you remember your Verizon password and have not migrated you email account before April 1st of 2016 then you still have a duration of 6 months in hand during which you can migrate the Verizon email to AOL.
For Flickr and Yahoo groups, you will need to use your Yahoo account for logging into these services. The Verizon account after migrating to AOL will not work with the Flickr or Yahoo groups. You can always echo the Verizon account information into your Yahoo email account and it is a good idea to preserve all the information before you migrate your Verizon account to AOL so that you can use it later.
So now use your new AOL account with ease if you are in FL, CA and TX as your Verizon account is now providing you with an AOL account.
