Windows Live Messenger (MSN) is way better than AOL, I would recommend it.

Yes, but Philip doesn't want to know about any other program.
He wants to know how to use AOL IM.

I use AIM along with MSN.. but I don't know what you mean by "setting up"

All i did was register a s/n and logged in.. and I was ready to chat?

Phlip, I'll try and find another link.

Edit: Nope, thats the only one I can find, and to log onto MSN you need hotmail account.

Doesn't your computer already have windows messanger? It should have that by default (Mines did anyway) It's not as good as windows live or msn, but it's good enought until you get one of the 2 :)

Phlip
09-04-07, 15:47
Philip, I thought you wanted help with AOL IM? :confused:

Yes I did but I decided to learn how to use msn :)


When I make a new account, it says there is a prob with the sign up system :confused:

Who fancies a chat on AIM then? I've always had it but I never really feel the need to use it. Everyone seems to use MSN...

I agree with Ben here. He wants to know how to use AOL. Not MSN.

Thats like asking for pizza and getting a hamburger. =/

Ahem.

Point was you were disregarding what he asked for in the begining.

It's windows messenger, not msn

LOL. You remind me of DOXonline.

Yeah, but now he's said he's using MSN. :p

Lmao XD

Yeah, but it's like i said to Hyper_Crazy, he was asking for help about AOL and you guys were telling him to get MSN.

I also refer to my statement before. When i go to a restaurant and ask for a cheeseburger, i don't want a salad or a pizza. :p

Open MSN/Windows Messenger and type in your email address and password. Simple as pie..
