Hi webuserid, The following page on AOL's web site describes all of the dial-up plans that AOL offers: AOL Pricing Plans http://www.aol.com/info/pricing.html Here is a summary of AOL's dial-up plans: - Standard plan: $23.90 per month for unlimited access to the Internet and non-premium AOL services - Prepaid subscription plan: $19.95 per month for unlimited access to the Internet and non-premium AOL services (must pay in advance $239.40 for one year) - Limited usage plan: $9.95 per month for 5 hours of access to the Internet and non-premium AOL services (additional time costs $2.95 per hour) - Light usage plan: $4.95 per month for 3 hours of access to the Internet and non-premium AOL services (additional time costs $2.50 per hour) Note: The "bring-your-own-access" plan mentioned on the above web page is not a dial-up plan because it requires the subscriber to already have access to the Internet.

The full answer to this question cannot be found through a link. There are a few plans (one of which I am currently on) that AOL offers but does not advertise. The only way to find them is to call AOL and speak to the right people. My plan is for $12.95 per month for 20 hours and $1 / hour if we go over the 20.

In regards to the pricing plan 12.95/20/.99, there are quite a few pricing plans like this that have come and gone over the years. These are usually started as promotional plans, offered only to select individuals. They will roll out a new pricing plan, offering it for a limited amount of time, and then stop offering it. However they usually allow those already on the plan the option of remaining on it when the plan is retired. There are also special pricing plans that can only be acquired if the account was set up using a special aol disk, or a special promotional code. There are probably around 50 or more different pricing plans at any given time, however most of these are not available to the general public. Some of these plans are so ancient and obscure that only AOL billing rep. veterans will remember them. sldreamer was correct on the pricing plans that are offered to the general public. The are pricing plans that can be chosen by the aol member through keyword billing, or keyword change. The other 2 plans that I know that are offered to the public, but you must call and request them first is the 12.95/20/.99 plan, and another plan they call the "Account hold plan" or the "vacation plan" which is 2.95 a month, 0 hours, and is 2.95 per hour if you do connect. E-mail can still be accessed via www.aol.com for free, as long as the user is using another service to connect. But as far as the rest of the plans, the only way to know all of the plans would be to get a list of all known pricing plans from AOL, and I doubt very seriously they would release that information to the general public.
