I'm so thrilled :dance3: ! If you connect by broadband or any other ISP connection, you can now use the AOL software for free! That just saved me $15 a month :woohoo: .

We used to have AOL and I really liked it, but DH decided to switch to Adelphia, which I do not like. How do you go about getting the free AOL?

08-02-2006, 08:33 PM
Adelphia is my connection, too.

This is the number I called....1-800-984-6207. There's a big ad on the AOL site announcing the change. I called right away and they switched me to the free plan immediately. You still get to use all the software, but don't get the tech support (I never once used it anyway). :cool1:

Is this just e-mail or all the fun chat rooms and stuff I was addicted to many years ago? lol :blush:

LOL....I haven't checked everything out yet, but this is from the FAQ....

Important AOL Announcement
Changes Are Coming ...
More Choices and Flexibility for Our Members
AOL has always been an all-in-one online solution for our members: a way to connect to the Internet and an entertaining online destination once you're connected.

Now, some of the online services previously available only to members -- such as AOLŪ email and security features -- will be free to anyone who has their own Internet connection, including any dial-up, cable or DSL connection.

What will this mean for members like you? As long as you still need to connect to the Internet using AOL, nothing will change. You'll continue to get:

Reliable service 24/7 customer support Comprehensive safety and security protection Unlimited email storage, and more If you do at some point choose another provider for your Internet connection, you'll be able to keep your AOL email address and continue to use the AOL software and many of the features and content you've enjoyed as a member.

Sign up for an alert to be first to hear about some exciting new features we'll be announcing in September.
