Our Editor's Notes on AOL's Phone-Based Customer Care

AOL is one of the oldest online services companies in the United States. It provides email services, Internet services and online forums and discussion groups to its members. With millions of users, it isn't surprising that AOL gets many requests for customer service each and every day.

Why Do People Call AOL Customer Support?

People call AOL for a range of reasons, including:

  • Help setting up new accounts
  • Help with changing or canceling accounts
  • Addressing billing issues
  • Reporting fraud or abuse
  • Technical support and troubleshooting

Best Practices for Calling AOL Customer Service

There are several things that you can to ensure that your call to AOL goes well and that you achieve a quick resolution to your issue:

Before calling, make sure you have the right number. AOL still provides Netscape support and there is a different number for these accounts. In addition, there are other numbers for Spanish language and TTY (hearing impaired services) support.

Call during support hours. Technical support is 24/7 for paid subscribers. Other requests are handled during different days and times.

Have documentation relevant to your case handy. If you are calling about a technical issue, be in front of your computer or have your device handy so that you can troubleshoot along with the representative. If you are calling about a billing issue, have your statements or invoices nearby.

Have a way of taking notes during your call. These can come in handy if you have to escalate your case.

How do Consumers Feel About Calling AOL Customer Service?

Customers are reasonably happy with AOL customer service. As a legacy Internet company, AOL has a lot of experience working with people who aren't technically savvy. AOL also values its customers and wants to keep them with the company.

What Kind of Issues can AOL Customer Service Representative Resolve?

As an entirely online company, AOL customer service representatives are able to resolve most issues, including billing issues, technical problems and issues of fraud. They are also able to process appeals of suspended and canceled accounts.

What Can't Be Resolved With a Call to AOL Customer Service?

Because of the social nature of AOL, it is impossible for the company to referee conflicts between members. Unless another member's conduct violates AOL's terms of service, an AOL representative won't be able to have that person suspended or banned from the platform.

Another issue that an AOL customer service representative won't be able to resolve is if the AOL software or its platform are incompatible with your computer, devices, or operating system. While the representative may be able to help you troubleshoot to determine whether technical problems are caused by an incompatibility, he or she may only be able to suggest a possible workaround or that you use a different device or OS.

What Should You Do If You Have an Unsuccessful Call with AOL?

If you get off the phone with an AOL representative and feel as though your question was not answered or your issue was not resolved, don't give up. You may still have options.

Review your call notes. If you didn't take notes, write down or type out what you remember from the conversation. Take note of any areas of possible miscommunication so that you can address these issues in your next call to AOL.

Next, call AOL back. The next AOL customer service representative that you speak to may have more experience or better training. This could enable him or her to understand your concerns and provide a satisfactory solution.

If the second call does not resolve your situation, try contacting AOL through its other customer service options. AOL does offer a live chat option, along with e-mail support, both of which have the advantage of providing you with a transcript of your conversation. Another option is to request help from AOL via its social media accounts.
