They used to be a HUGE provider, but their significance has dwindled to an instant messager. I got AOL when it was at 2.0. So does anyone still use it?

I stopped actively using AOL in 2001, but I didnt get around to canceling it until last year. 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.

I use the IM service, but I've only used it as an ISP once. Worst three weeks of my Internet life.

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.

I use AO HELL. I hate, despise it, wish it to burn in hell. But have been too lazy to get another ISP.

I'm still on AOL since 2000, but I soon plan on getting that Verizon DSL deal that they have been offering lately.

I tried AOL out, and I was glad, because I don't think I would pay for such spotty connections and terrible software.

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.

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've only ever used AOL as a temp service until we could get a "real" ISP, though I use AIM practically every day.

What are other people's AIM habits like? 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...).

As I don't own my own computer, whenever I want to use AIM I just go to the school's library and use because I hate AIM Express.

Only AIM but I didn't download it I have the Express version.

For those that have several different IM programs, try Trillion. You can have 4 different companies IMs on there.
