The only thing I was hesitant about, on the free AOL deal, was my FTP space; that's where I store pictures for my journal. So, I called 1-800-984-6207 and talked to a robot for a few minutes. Finally I pushed "0" and was told there'd be about a 2 1/2 minute wait. I sat waiting for about twenty minutes, which isn't bad considering they're probably getting a lot of calls today.
The pleasant young lady told me that I will, in fact, still have FTP space with my free AOL. What I won't have is dial-up if I'm on the road... but I have that through Embarq anyway. Oh, and I won't have AOL tech support. Big deal! About all they ever did for me was mess up my computer; I haven't called AOL techs in years.
The only people who will have to pay for AOL now are those on dial-up. Happy days are here again!
If you access AOL through another provider, call that number I mentioned and start saving money.
