Disconnect a Session on AOL Mobile

We've given users of AOL Mobile the option of either logging off each time they use the service on Sprint PCS Wireless Web, or simply ending their Wireless Web session when they hang up, by pushing the phone's End key.

Enter Username and Password From the Phone

Using the multi-tap system, you can type in your Username and password (letters, numbers and symbols) with the buttons on your telephone keypad. To enter the letter S for example, press the 7 key 4 times; to enter the letter x press the 9 key twice. Do not be afraid to experiment. Errors can be corrected with the CLR key. If successive letters employ the same numbered key, pause a moment to let the cursor move to the right. Numbers may be entered by pressing the appropriate key 4 or 5 times (depending upon whether the key supports 3 or 4 letters). Just watch the screen. For symbols such as a period, keep pressing the 1 key until the desired symbol is displayed.

Access AOL Mobile through Wireless Carriers Other than Sprint PCS Or AT&T Wireless

Members should review their equipment manuals or check with their service providers for instructions as to how to enter these addresses into their phone's browser.

Steps to Follow If My Phone is Lost or Stolen

If your phone is lost or stolen, the best action would be to notify Sprint to have your service suspended, which protects you from phone charges and protects access to your email account. We also recommend that you log off after every session to protect your email account and to deter unauthorized users from placing calls and accessing the Web.
