Yahoo phone number

I’ve not been able to access my email account for the past two days. Is there a Yahoo phone number to which I can call and get assistance? I’m sure the password is correct as I have used it for years.
Trevor Malisa

I’m aware of three Yahoo phone numbers. However, please note the following:

  • It’s kind of difficult for the staff at Yahoo! to provide personalised assistance simply because there have hundreds of millions of subscribers.
  • Yahoo Plus (paid) users may get priority over free subscribers (the majority).
  • It’s not Yahoo’s fault if you forget the email password. Retrieve or reset it by providing other details such as the secret answers to the security questions.
  • If you’ve forgotten the secret answers, don’t blame Yahoo!
  • When you are sure that the password and secret answers are correct, your account may have been hacked or you could have been a victim of a phishing attack. In the latter case, you, once again, cannot accuse Yahoo!
  • If the Yahoo email is through your ISP, BT for example, it’s better to contact the Internet service provider.

    Please help! I cannot access my account in 2 days! I just keep being redirected to a page asking me to choose between keeping my account in the US or moving it to Spain for a speedier service. Which ever option I choose I am simply redirected to this same page again!! Please help!

    I got a new Yahoo email a few days back. But I can’t login because I forgot the password. I’ve been trying to get through to Yahoo people over phone but to no avail. Appreciate any help.

    @Geofrey,
    Since this email account is relatively new (just a few days old), it’s best that you forget about it and set up a new one. And don’t worry about the old account as it will be deleted by Yahoo in a few months.

    I forgot the password. Can Yahoo people send me this over phone?

  • Manish on June 20th, 2012 7:33 am

    @Billy Charles Loden
    No. You can reset the password by providing the alternate email address or answering the security questions. If you feel your account has been compromised, you would have to provide other information to regain access to the account.

    Having tons of problems today: (i) email loading very slowly (ii) cannot reply because internet explorer keeps crashing

    Ring, Ring, Ring, Ring, Ring. Is there anybody out there? No one answers the Yahoo phones.

  • Soheil Heidary on March 4th, 2013 10:44 am

    My email account has been locked. I think I’m going to delete it and set up a new one. Will this be fine?

    Contacting Yahoo is a pain.

  • Allen Wolfsteller on March 19th, 2013 4:43 am

    It doesn’t let me log in. I’m trying from a new phone number.

  • Manish on March 20th, 2013 9:42 am

    @Allen
    You need to be more descriptive. Is the password being rejected? Or you cannot connect to Yahoo! account?

  • Ibrahim on April 15th, 2013 1:45 pm

    Tired of contacting Yahoo again and again with no help. It’s simpler to open a new account.
