Getting Rid of ECHO (Formerly Haloscan) -- Any Advice?

My ECHO (Haloscan) commenting system account is running out and I probably will not renew my subscription.  The price has jumped from $9 a year to $10 a month, and ECHO is proving problematic.  Sometimes ECHO doesn't run and some readers have posted comments on the Blogger comment system; however when ECHO does run, those comments are hidden from view.

I would like to transfer reader ECHO comments to the Blogger comments system if that is possible, then remove ECHO from my blog.

If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know.

UPDATE:  I figured it out.  I am back to using the Blogger Commenting System and it should be easier to use for readers.

PLEASE NOTE:  I do not recommend ECHO as a commenting system, since it is buggy and transferring back to blogger is fraught with errors and difficulty.

I installed echo in Jan. 2010, it' was only $10 a year. I hope it doesn't raise for me to $10 a month, or I'll have to ditch it too. I haven't had problems with it, knock on wood. I like how it blocks ips, and lets you put pics and vids. I hope if I decide to cancel it, It isn't too hard to get rid of, thanks for letting us know, Stogie.

Bunni, they are now asking for a minimum of $10 per month, depending on your hits. Also I notice that ECHO is buggy and it is increasingly difficult to get problems resolved.
