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.

This will get added at the end of each post you make, below an horizontal line. This should preferably be kept to a small enough size.

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.

Traveling purposes only...I've actually paid for four months of it now and am going to cancel it if I remember this month.

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.

Sweet dreams......

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.
