  1. how can you contact yahoo? every way they offer is a dead end!?!?!

    why is it so very, very, very difficult to get in contact with yahoo? Every method yahoo suggests doesn't work. No one is available no matter what method or service you use. i have been on hold for 30minutes? For real yahoo. All I have is a simple question about my password for which none of the methods help and no one answers they phone and no email to contact them is provided. Thanks a bunch yahoo.

        • "Your password should not be similar to the previous password." The new password I entered is not similar in any way to my previous password

          It says: "Your password should not be similar to the previous password." The new password I entered is not similar in any way (no relation at all or has any similarities, period) to my previous password, and it will not let me change my password. If there is something wrong with you system, please fix it. Thanks.

          • I am sick of the password requirement ****!

            Seriously we are responsible for OUR security somewhat. If I want a simple password that I have used for 10 years that is up to me. Log me out after 2 weeks just to log back in, and because Yahoo has absurd requirements in their password One upper case One Lower case and Numbers, You know what Yahoo F#@k You! I have to register a new password every time you do this and sometimes a few times because my mobile doesn't expire at the same time. And the BS about you can't use a password you have used before. STOP…

              • Your customer service sucks

                You need more phone operators because it makes no sense Ive been trying to talk to customer care for two weeks straight on the phone waiting for hours at a time to be left with no response and to be disconnected.

                • Stop the ads on top of the messages. It's so annoying!

                  Lately yahoo started to put ads on top of the messages. It's always in bold and it makes me think there is a new message inbox. Please, stop it. It's extremely annoying. Is there a way to get rid of these sponsors' ad?

                    • Pretty stupid to send password reset instructions to the very email account I can't log into

                      Really sick of having to reinstall my Android app every time Yahoo thinks I should reenter my password or change it. And then when the password is wrong because I've had to change it so often recently because of your incompetence in keeping my account secure you then decide that the best way to send me the password reset instructions is to send it to the email account that I can't access because of your stupid password requirements. REALLY, REALLY sick of being inconvenienced because you can't operate properly and keep things secure. This is the business you're in. It…

                                    • The Yahoo software is not great at all. I keep signing in and even changed my password and yahoo still does not get me to my emails.

                                      I have tried signing in and yahoo's software is terrible. Just like another one - I keep trying to sign in, even changed my password and I cannot access my email on Yahoo -- Please, Please - get something good on Yahoo, like a site that we would be able to sign into without all of this trouble.
