Question and Answer

  • I am unable to access my aol account on my phone. This has happened several times. Each time I was able to resolve the issue. Today, I called the AOL Tech Support Desk and was told that the server was corrupted because I did not have the phone protected from infections. In order to correct the problem with a one time fix, I would need to pay AOL $129. If I wanted to protect the phone for one year, it would cost be $199. I am paying every month to have AOL. I am beginning to wonder if this isn't a scam outfit.
