Changing Contact Information Under Settings

For the past few months when I signed onto my account AOL has asked me to update my contact info. Finally I put in my first and last name, address, etc.

Now when I sign onto my account under the instant messaenger instead of having my screen name it has my full first and last name. I get a lot of spam email and IMs. I don't want them seeing my first and last name. In fact I would prefer to not have this information on my account at all.

When I try to remove it under settings I am not allowed to save my changes without filling in all the fields which means that from now on I need my full name, address, and phone number on my account.

This account has been cracked or broken into twice over the 10+years I have had it. There is no way I can have my information on here and I would prefer not to delete the account I have had for so long...is there a way around this?

 

Thanks for your help

You can use menu Help, Manage My Account, look for Price Plan. If you use dial-up service you can't get the free plan, but you may be able to get a plan as cheap as $9.95.

Where do I find Settings?

If you are running AOL Desktop, Settings is an icon at the top, for me it is the 6th from the left. If you are looking at aol.com, you can get to Settings at Help (way down at the bottom), or go directly to http://help.aol.com/help/settings/
