Leaving AOL help with obtaining MAC code please

I want to leave aol and sign up with zen

Can someone tell me the correct preceedure to follow in order to obtain a MAC code from aol, and which phone number to phone.

I'm quite anxious about this, as I have heard horror stories about people leaving AOL.

I switched from AOL to ADSL24 a couple of years ago. click here

The MAC (code) arrived fairly promptly and without any real hassle except that they were a bit slow to cancel my direct debit and needed a reminder.

I think most ISPs are better at this now and the horror stories relate mostly to an earlier time when switching really was a pain.

Getting rid of the AOL bloatware on my pc took a while, though I still have my username and password for their (free) web e-mail service.

Thanks provider 2.
I take it that you automatically keep your aol email address when you quit aol, or do you have to ask them?

It`s automatic, I think. I made no such request anyway and there was no requirement to change username or password to get it to work.

See if you can log in now (before you change over) just in case things might have changed: click here (ignore the adverts).
