Is AOL changing their dial up number?

My mum says she keeps getting a pop up telling her that she needs to change her dialup number. Without going up there and seeing it for myself, I thought I'd ask on here in case it's some dodgy pop up and not AOL.

If you are referring to the number 0808 996 9000 then I am getting the same pop up

I'll have to ask her if thats the number. Is it a genuine AOL pop up?

Try going to, Keyword "Best Number"

yes, AOL are in the process of advising users that new numbers are now available.
As feb says, you can always ensure the numbers are AOL freephone numbers by going to Keyword - best number.

AOL have been changing the dial up numbers since at least May or June of this year and are now getting round to telling their users!! I had a friend who was unable to dial up to 3 yes 3 different numbers and then finally I managed to get him the correct number. I didnt bother ringing AOL cos they wouldnt have helped but I am not surprised they are just telling their customers about this now...before their customers would come thru to BT Faults and blame us for them not being able to connect so I told them no the problem is with AOL they just dont want to tell you...and now here's me yes just do a keyword for Best Numbers and you're off...

OK cheers for that guys. Guess I better tell her to change it.
