Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be the expert working with you today to help and resolve the problem you have posted.

Try to reset the password ***** more time and see if you can login successfully to your AOL account.

Incase your contacts are still not there you may contact or send an email to the AOL the contacts can be recovered from the AOL server and can be restored. Let me know if you have any question.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.

you can contact aol at 1-***-***-**** (Mon-Fri: 8am-12am ET; Sat: 8am-10pm ET) as lost contacts is a aol server issue and we can only test the mail settings and browser settings

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not really satisfied
Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.

well see if an account has been hacked we cannot recover if anything has been permanently deleted

the only possibility is to try recovering from aol servers if they keep a copy of users data with them

the steps i gave was to recover it, but since the options seem not be listed on your aol webmail the same way as i told, it would be best to give aol a call and check if they actually keep a copy of data or not. if not then unfortunately for something that is permanently deleted there is no way to recover it
