  2. ACCOUNT RECOVERY

    Yahoo help desk does not work. How can I recover my father's account when I only know his email? He lost his phone months ago that's why his recovery number cannot be an option. How can I solve this? kindly help me.

  3. I would like for you to check the companies that advertise on your site to make sure they are not scammers.

    I would like for you to check the companies that advertise on your site to make sure they are not scammers. I ordered and paid $47 for an ice maker and they sent me an ice scoop. They have offered me a $8, then $15 then $20 refund. I have refused all of the offers and told them I want what I ordered, Now they say they do not have the item. The scammer is Crazydealse.

  11. Why are there news articles from Singapore?? No one cares about Singapore!!!!

    Maybe there should be no articles from lousy corrupt little nations. Its obviously a way to get Yahoo users to upgrade their service to avoid commercial interruptions, constant pop ups etc. Really evil, Yahoo!!

  13. How can I block telephone messages containing ****** content

    y do you allow sexually explicit messages;, there’s no setting that allows us to block them completely, but you could make the people producing them “opt in” instead of making us try to find a way to avoid them

  14. Lost phone number.

    I'm locked out of my email since I don't own my old SIM card anymore and there's no way to recover my account. There's no free customer support and I'm not willing to pay $5 just to be told that they cant do anything.

  15. Which Subject, Topic, Category or Option for enqiry about Data Download

    None that I could see, nor anything close found with Help Search.
    How do I find out why my Data Download requests are being cancelled after I get an email saying they are in progress.
    I thought that maybe the Chat Assistant might be the place for answers not in the FAQ or given topic lists, but I was wrong.
    Overall Help structure and option trees seem to be quite limited, with no obvious route to search beyond the limited choices shown, or is that all there is. If so it is not exactly comprehensive.

  16. Download my Data doesn't

    I request to download my data, I get status that this is being processed, i get email telling me it is being processed and will notify when ready. Then, less than an hour later I get another email telling me the data download is cancelled. Why? No reason or explanation given. Try again to initiate a Data Download, same result. And a 3rd time, fails again. Why?? It would be nice to know the reason for the download being cancelled. Is this a temporary glitch or a permanent fail, should I try again in a little while or is it…

  17. Chat Assistant totally fails the Turing Test

    Chat assistant, and general help page layout fail to lead towards anything helpful. Just loop through the same limited options. Frustrating experience that made me mutter some very rude words and waste a lot of time. Chat Assistant needs a larger vocabulary of Keywords to identify the enquiry being made, and a larger selection of Options to offer, including "Non of the above", or "Other" to break out of a loop and try to find another branch of its obviously very limited response/decision tree.

  18. Please turn OFF your Pop Over Ads.....

    Every time I refresh a page or go to a new page....a pop over ad appears....turn it off....it's annoying and I don't care about them. I'm what you would call a "super affiliate" and know all about these annoying ads of all sorts......pop overs are the worst & will irritate your users the most.

  20. Problem with mouse cursor on vertical scroll bar.

    If your mouse cursor moves off the vertical scroll bar while reading Yahoo News, it returns to Yahoo first page news listing.
    Please correct this so I can finish news article. You don't need this since you can return to news listing by using the back arrow in upper bar.
