    Is anyone else having issues with there aol mail on iPhone? I actually have a prob with iPod too. On iPhone it just keeps saying wrong password/email. I have been changing password on computer and it works, but it won't do any password on my iPhone. I have even deleted my account off phone n put it back on. It still happens. Anyone know what I can do? Thank you!

    did you add the account in settings/mail,contacts,calendar/add account ?
    You can either do that or at it as an Exchange account

    Or reboot. Sometimes that is the only way to get a fresh update from them. I had a similar issue with Simply Tweet. Changed my password on my laptop, but I had the app open, and it kept on going, never error-ring. I rebooted and then had to change my login.

    I thought the same thing when I saw the thread title. Made me instantly flash back to the discs in the mail and dial up screeching in the background.

    Exchange account can be any account you want to share contacts mail calendar with like mobilme
    But if you done all that I suggest take all accounts off do a reset and try again

    AOL well some may have had it for years and switch an e-mail if you have your life attached to it! What a pain! Some places let you not switch e-mails unless you close accounts and open a new one besides if you have family members some are Grammies who need Geeksquad to come and change it for them etc not so surprising to me

    If YOU'RE going to rag on someone you have to get it right. Lots of people still have AOL. Lol

    Really, it means to tease. Generally recognized term. You don't have to ask "really?" it's right there in the post. I just didn't see the need to ridicule someone about having AOL. I'm sure they're happy you stuck up for them. Sorry you were offended.

    But you saw the need to ridicule someone for using the wrong tense of a word?

    Come on guys, drop it already. Quibbling over small crap like this means you're looking to argue.
    And arguing on the internet is like competing in the special olympics. Even if you win, you're still retarded.
    (no offense to those who have or know a mental challenged individual)

    I hope those still using AOL because they don't want to change their email know that they can cancel the AOL service and pay nothing, and keep the email address.

    Wow I didn't realize still having AOL as an email would cause this? Lon, I know I haven't paid those ridiculous fees since they did away with them.
