If you have ever tried to get in touch with America Online to get technical support, you are aware of how frustrating the experience can be. The support AOL provides is only available to its paying members, and online support is not available to members with its lowest-priced plans. This can make it difficult to receive technical support for AOL's Web-mail program, website or programs.
