Yes, I had free AOL for 6 months and it drove me crazy. Switched to MSN.
yea.. but they are now giving it away free to everyone.. perminently...
We’re in the process of offering all of our content and many of our services for free -- with or without an AOL Internet connection.
"Our first change -- from now on, you no longer need to be an AOL member to take advantage of a free AOL® Mail account. You can access your mail at AOL.com or by using our software, which is also now available free to everyone. It’s your choice."
They must be charging alot of ad space... cause i remember what mom was getting charged...
We got AOL for free for 7 months. It started off as 2 months free. They wouldn't let us cancel our service and kept throwing free months at us. Mr. LL was on the phone for an hour to get them to cancel it.
They always give AOL away for free. Just install one of their free 30 day discs, when the time is about to expire, call them up & try to cancel it, and then they will beg you to have another 6 free months if you do not pay for their service.
AOL is awful- they have released thousands of search queries of people, many of which contained personal information and refused to cancel accounts for dead people-- and thats just within the last week.
They are awful- they could pay me to use their services (and they do- they're paying people to leave other sites and visit netscape.com), and I still wouldn't.
I have never used AOL, I remember my computer came with it, and my friend hit install I remember trying to uninstall, what a bunch crapola on the hard drive, i think AOL is worse then a worm, a virus and a head cold !!
