When registering for a new account, many users have to first enter a cell number or else they are unable to create their account. This should be optional, rather than a requirement. Many users do not necessarily have access to a cellular device and should be able to continue.
Also, what happens if you lose access to one of your old accounts and have to create a new one from the same number? Yahoo has limitations on how many accounts you can create, so we should enable to make it optional rather than a requirement.
I've stated that years ago and it's been falling on deaf ears all that time. We might as well stop trying to get them to understand that since Verizon now owns it.

That's a good suggestion for the Yahoo Mail suggestion board. This is Yahoo Answers suggestion board. Duh!
