I got AOL when it was at 2.0. So does anyone still use it? Promote this thread!

During the time I was paying for it but not actually using it, I would keep checking my AOL inbox just in case someone was still sending me stuff there. When I finally decided to pull the plug, it took me 20 minutes to cancel my AOL. I'm still all over their IM service, though.

Y!: # 4 Posted on 18.12.05 1252.04 Reposted on: 18.12.12 1257.48 I sometimes use AIM, but have always preferred Yahoo's Messenger instead. Only used AOL when my parents had it...for maybe 2 weeks. The best provider I've ever had is the one I have now...Verizon DSL, which just upgraded their service for Yahoo central people, by offering a lot of Yahoo's premium services as a part of the package.

ICQ: # 10 Posted on 8.2.06 0211.20 Reposted on: 8.2.13 0211.47 I still use AOL, and despite being massively unhappy with it, I also think that the current version (I am using 9.0) has made quite some improvements, plus I use AOL since 1996 and I guess it just grew on me to the point of getting used to it and not wanting to change anymore.

Y!: # 11 Posted on 8.2.06 0257.36 Reposted on: 8.2.13 0258.25 I use AIM. I know one person in the world who uses AOL (dial up) and his Internet access endowment is the subject of much mockery.

I'm pretty much permanently signed on, only logging off when my internet or power go down. Really, I check my AIM messages before I check my voicemail whenever I get home. AIM is pretty much a third phone for me (landline, cellphone...).
