    • LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS!

      Listen to your customers! I have been trying to sign up for an account for two hours today, the second time around! When I get to the question "Mobile home phone number" my application is over! I do not have a mobile phone. In fact, I do not have ANY phone, because my home is out of our local company's territory! No matter how I say it, no one pays attention. The question then appears in red! So I repeat: I have no mobile phone. click on next question and the same thing happens. I have tried over and over…

      • New version lacks all of the features that made the old version preferred.

        There are numerous issues that I have found with the new messenger. Most of the issues are just annoyances. The two issues that are deal breakers and not just annoyances are the removal of the flashing task bar icon when someone has messaged me. Since I use this at work, most of the time I don't have sound and even when I have sound, the notification is so brief you can't even hear it anyways. I have messages that I haven't seen for hours because I didn't know I received any. The other deal breaker for me would be the…

              • What have u done to Yahoo Messeger?

                I thought the idea of upgrades was to improve the program, but you seem to have created a useless chat site which will make people go elsewhere for a better program

                        You had a superior useful product in the old yahoo messenger. I used it for years. The new product is useless to me. I've uninstalled it at work and every computer I use. Such a waste.

                                    • The worst Yahoo ever.

                                      I can't see who is online, I can't add anybody. I tried to add a group 2 zillion times, can't figure it out. I am using the old one until it stops working, then will use a multi-platform program. I hate this version. It is horrible. 99% of the people hate it, why not change it back?

                                      • What idiot among you compared these two messengers and thought the new was better?

                                        Where do I begin on all thats wrong with this thing?

                                        can't see your entire buddy list
                                        photoshare removed
                                        can't customize fonts or IM sounds
                                        no availability options
                                        can't voice chat
                                        barely any options at all

                                        The old yahoo messenger was hands down the best one out there. The new one is the bare minimum of what you can call a messenger. Even SKYPE'S IM is superior to this thing. Do you know how pathetic it is when you can say skype's messaging is superior to yours?
