    What is AOL Contacts?

    AOL Contacts is a feature of AOL Mail that serves as a software tool, a type of service, and a form of data management. As a software tool, it is designed to automatically sync with AOL servers, ensuring that a user's contact list is always up-to-date. If issues arise, such as contacts not being visible, users are advised to check their internet connection or reinstall Desktop Gold. This tool allows users to store and manage contact information such as physical addresses, websites, and birthdays for friends and colleagues.

    The AOL Contacts service extends support to users through various channels, including email, chat, phone, social media, and help articles. Specialized phone support is available for tasks like account management and password resets during specific hours throughout the week, with extended 24/7 phone support offered to paid members. Additionally, users can reach out for support on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.

    In terms of data, AOL Contacts provides a user-friendly interface for adding, editing, and deleting contact information. Users can add new contacts directly from AOL Mail or from an email they are viewing. Editing a contact is as simple as clicking the Contacts icon, selecting the contact, and accessing the edit options to update information or change the contact's image. All changes can be saved easily, and contacts can be removed from a user's list by accessing the deletion option in the contact's info page.
