LOL, I found more forums about AOL. I love this forum as much as I hate AOL..... Check fo the AOL ad guys... it says that you need to have an existing broadband connection like DSL or Cable internet before they can provide you the "high speed"connection. Why pay for an extra service of AOL while you can get those services for free like yahoo, msn, etc. Plus, AOL programs can bug down your computer - it will slow down your computer significantly.

Some people won't give up their AOL account coz most of them are subscribers for almost a decade and they have the AOL email address and don't want to lose it. But why still keep the AOL email while you can do your email from your current ISP or if you change your ISP from time to time, then go to yahoo or hotmail for a free account. That way, you can keep your email forever as long as you keep on accessing it.

And I think, it's not that difficult to switch from AOL email to another email account. You can notify everybody from your address book that you will be changing your email from now on...

Well, I still don't understand why people still pay 2 internet providers at the same time. Probably AOL has doped or hypnotized them to be with AOL forever... LOL

And don't be deceived when you cancel AOL. It says from their website that it's easy to cancel and if you sign up, there's no contract and you can cancel anytime.... YOU CAN CANCEL ANYTIME... YES, THAT'S TRUE... BUT THEY WILL GIVE YOU A NIGHTMARE BEFORE THEY CAN CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT ESPECIALLY IF YOU SETUP A SECONDARY ACCOUNT.

Think about it guys... probably you can share your and our experience to your friends who are still planning to sign up for AOL..

Have a nice day!!
