Aol Email Not Working On Iphone

Recent reports indicate that some users are having trouble accessing their AOl (A-Live) email accounts through the iPhone. Some people have even reported being completely unable to access their account information!

If you are one of the individuals who is experiencing this issue, there are several things you can do to restore your email functionality.

This article will go into detail about what may be causing the problem, as well as some possible remedies. Hopefully one or more of these tips will work for you!

What is AOL?

To make it simple, AOL means “America’s Online”. It was an internet service provider (ISP) company founded in 1985 by media mogul Steve Case along with Jerry Greenberg and Tim Koeltl. At first, it consisted of only 1 million members, but now it boasts over 30 million subscribers all around the world!

In its early years, AOL focused heavily on providing dial up services via phone lines and computer modems. However, as time went on they began offering other services such as chat rooms and eventually, email.

At the time, most major companies had their own internal email servers, so creating an ISP business model where anyone could create an email address was not too difficult. What was hard, however, was getting people to use them!

A lot of brands at the time did not offer free emails, which made using someone else’s email very limited.

Reboot your iPhone

If all else fails, try to reset your phone by going into Settings -> General -> Reset -> Erase All Data. Make sure you have enough battery life before doing this as it will use up more power!

This has worked for some people in our community that we talk to who were able to get their iPhones working again. It’s worth a shot if you are still being greeted with the “AOL can’t connect to server” error message when trying to access accounts via Apple or Microsoft services.

Connect to a new Wi-Fi network


If you are experiencing issues with your AOL email, then it is time to try connecting to a different Wi-Fi network or changing your router’s settings.

Usually, when an individual experiences problems with their internet or wi-fi connection, they will first connect to another wireless network to see if that works better. Or, they may change their current router’s password or other settings.

You can also check to make sure your phone isn’t in sleep mode, which happens automatically when it detects there’s no signal. This could be due to not having wifi at home, or your phone running out of battery.

Reset your iCloud account

If you are unable to access your email or other Apple services like iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using the Safari browser, reset your iCloud settings. This will remove all of your data from the cloud as well as clear out any cached information such as cookies.

To do this, head over to and click on For You in the left-hand menu. Then, select Your Account from the top navigation bar. Finally, choose Manage Settings under Online Services & Apps.

You may need to sign into your device with the same username and password that is used for iCloud. Once logged in, make sure both Check Mail and Find My Device are checked. After doing this, close the window and refresh the web page to verify it has completely reloaded.

If this does not work, try changing your internet provider or creating a new one! That way, your devices can connect to the Internet through a different source, which might help fix the issue.

Restore your iPhone

If you have ever tried to use AOL, or any other popular email app like Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, or Outlook on an Apple device and it does not work, chances are very high that you have done this at least once before.

If you accidentally deleted one of these apps or something else in your phone’s settings, then there is no longer a way to access them. You will need to restore your phone from before so that everything can be re-installed.

This article will tell you how to do just that! Stay tuned for more tips here on How To Reinstall Your Default Apps On An iOS Device.

Try using an alternate email address

If you have tried all of our tips thus far with no luck, try checking your device settings to see if your old account has been disabled. Also, make sure that you are signed into the correct Google Account on the phone!

If you use the Gmail app for iOS, it may be caching invalid login information. Even though you can still access your inbox via the web version of Gmail, it will not work through the mobile app until you clear its cache. To do this, go to Settings > Accounts & sync > Clear Cache and Reset Password. Then, refresh the page to re-log in.

This sounds crazy, but could actually help fix your issue! Sometimes when users delete an account or change their password, some parts don’t get updated immediately. Because of this, your iPhone is retaining cached credentials from the previous account.

Check your phone’s battery

Recent reports of people being able to access their old AOL email accounts via the company’s website have users across the board baffled. Some believe that it has something to do with Apple removing certain third-party apps, while others think there may be someone else using the account as a way in.

If you are having trouble accessing your own personal AOL emails through the site, our team would recommend checking your device’s battery. It could potentially lose power when enough time passes without use, making it seem like the login process is just taking longer than expected. Make sure its strength is fully preserved so it will not give false signs of slowing down or dying out completely.

Update your Apple software

Recent reports indicate that some people are having issues accessing their AOl email through the iPhone app or web interface. Some of these issues arise due to users running out of space on their device.

If you’re one of the individuals experiencing this issue, make sure you check your devices for free space. It may be necessary to delete an old app, remove a third-party account type such as iCloud from another device, or even uninstall all apps except for the AOl mobile app and iCloud.

Apple is notifying customers about a potential security breach related to the exposed login credentials for certain accounts. This includes Gmail, Yahoo Mail, Outlook, and AOl (AOL Messenger) online mail and chat accounts.

Reinstall Aol

If you are having issues with your AOl email, it could be because of something you did to disable or delete your account. Or, you may have forgotten how to use AOl effectively. Either way, doing these steps will restore access to your AOl email.

First, make sure that you do not have AOL as a app on your phone. You can go into your mobile device settings and look for AOL under Apps or Settings.
If this is done then start all over again by creating an AOl account!

Second, try re-logging in to AOl if you already have. Some people create multiple accounts when they lose their old one so make sure to check that out.

And lastly, try resetting your AOl password. This removes any authentication codes such as login names and passwords that you might have set up before. All users are given this option at some point while using the service.
