Stop requiring a mobile number
Use of e-mail does NOT require a mobile phone.

Take these as axioms and adjust your service accordingly.

Not everyone has a mobile number and only have a landline number. I do not feel safe using my mobile number. I have created Yahoo account before without having to verify my Yahoo account with a mobile number.
pls .Stop the requiring a mobile.pls stop now nah tnxt poh
AOL is also the same, you can't even get their email without a mobile phone!!! G-----m!!!
I agree that there should be an opt out in using our mobile number, however it is not really that big of a deal. All sorts of personal info are bought and sold everyday.
Here is an idea! Why don't you unplug and torch your mobile so as to not have to worry.
There be a snark in there.

So great to hear my idea from others-The necessity of text or mobile phone should have nothing to do with this mail situation!!
Requiring a mobile phone number violates access to people with electrosensitivity, a disability that impacts at least 3% of the population, and is on the rise.
YAHOO suppressed the counter so complaints only appear as ranked 1st, 2nd
but here the counter still works, please express your VOTE :
WE WILL BE HEARD, this is ludicrous to install CENSORSHIP ON YOUR CUSTOMERS
I agree - I am a senior citizen dealing with vision impairments. I do NOT have a phone which sends and/or receives text messages because I can NOT read all of that tiny print! I would not mind being asked ONCE to hand my mobile number over to Yahoo so that Yahoo can send text messages to a phone which does NOT accept text messages - but I would like to be able to say "no thanks" ONCE and NOT be asked for that same information EVERY time I sign in - Yahoo Groups needs to restore the former readability features to make it easy again for senior citizens with disabilities, including vision impairment - to use groups again. I am a senior citizen with vision impairment. I have been the moderator for many of our groups for many years. Previously, I had no problem being able to function as a moderator because I could easily read all of the commands for rejecting or accepting messages (all of our boards are moderated). However, with the supposed recent "improvements" - i have found it almost impossible to be able to read enough of the directions to decide whether or not I should accept or delete a message. I can see a blue check, which I presume means to accept and a red cross which I presume means to reject the message - then there are some dots - and I have NO idea what the dots mean. Moving the cursor over the symbols produces some some of writing - which I presume must be an explanation of what the little symbols really mean - but the writing is too tiny and too obscure for me to be able to actually read what the explanation is for the symbols. I cannot highlight anything to use my Mac Book Pro SPEECH feature, available under the Edit Button - and the explanation for the little symbols does NOT respond to the READER feature on the Mac Book Pro. In fact, in order to come to the customer care section, I run in to a page with TINY light blue writing on a write background. The pale writing might as well be white. Have you ever tried to read white on white or black on black? The "tip" is to appoint someone else to share the moderator duties. However ALL of the members of ALL of the groups which I belong to on Yahoo are senior citizens, dealing with various disabilities - including vision impairment. In addition, they are NOT tech savvy. The supposed "new" so-called "improvements" COULD be a dream come true for someone who is tech-savvy. But members of the groups which I belong to are NOT tech savvy. We are senior citizens and are dealing with a variety to disabilities, including vision impairment. Asking another member of one of our groups to take over the moderator duties would NOT change anything - because the only candidates for the job would ALSO be senior citizens, dealing with various disabilities, who are likewise NOT tech savvy. Yahoo needs to assign someone to read through the Americans with Disabilities Act and pay attention to some of the suggestions which have been made to make computers accessible to senior citizens who are NOT tech savvy and who are dealing with a variety of disabilities. It just seems to me that a primary goal for forward looking executives would be to make sure that your product is EASY to use for the greatest number of potential customers, clients, advertisers and consumers. Making your product so difficult to access that people just give up because it has become so difficult and so time-consuming seems to me to be the type of upper level management decision which would eventually spell disaster - because you are severely limiting the number of people who would want to even try to use your product.
