@ChristianJBergstrom This doesn't work! When I put my gmail or outlook email on the respective field, it redirects me to the personal version of Teams and asks me to sign in. After signing in, I land on the personal version of teams, not the free (classic) org version.

@nur_nobi1 I am experiencing the same issue. I did not like the domain name ([domainname].onmicrosoft.com) of my old org, so I cancelled my Teams free (classic) subscription and deleted its Azure AD in order to sign up again, following the instructions provided on Create multiple Teams Free (classic) organizations. However, when I try to sign up now, it redirects me to the login page of Teams personal. A 365 representative told me that Teams free (classic) has recently stopped being offered and existing uses will have to downgrade to personal or upgrade to a paid business subscription. Not sure if this is accurate.

@aaroncz Hi, to confirm that Teams free classic is not available anymore.

Well, it looks like the 365 customer service is being inconsistent again that it told me false information regarding the existing users of Teams free (classic). The Azure engineer who promised me that "You will be able to sign up with a new Microsoft Teams Free (classic) subscription after you delete the current tenant" replied "It is out of my scope" and kicked the responsibility to the 365 service team to defend himself as I told him I couldn't sign up any more. I angrily replied that out of his scope really was not a valid disclaimer - if it was out of his scope, he shouldn't make such false promise in the first place.
Apart from the unpleasant experience with the inconsistent customer service, I did find that Microsoft 365 F1 would be a perfect alternative. It costs only US$2.25/month, but has 1TB SharePoint storage (amazing!!!), which Teams and Teams apps utilize. Its 2GB OneDrive storage doesn't bother me at all cause I have Microsoft 365 Family with 1TB, and Teams doesn't even use OneDrive storage anyway.
