Contacts hard to find, edit, alter, and delete
Since the new changes it has become much more difficult to search and edit or delete a single contact. It would be very helpful if a dropdown menu were available to search by several choices such as ending email address or last name or company. partial name, with the ability to select the item and go to edit.

I would like to ask how to assign a contact to a group ? I could not find the option to "assign group"
My lists used to work better. Now I have people disappearing from my lists. When I view the list, I see addresses and phone numbers rather than email addresses. I cannot figure out how to put my list of lists in order starting with A. Why do things get WORSE instead of BETTER??
Seriously! What has happened to the easy feature that allows for adding or deleting contacts on lists. I have used the new contact address book, deleted a client from a list and now that client has been permanently removed from my ALL contacts list. I don't have time for this nonsense!
Just make deleting contacts easier
Contacts getting all mixed up. Others' names and phone numbers and addresses showing up where they shouldn't. Kill autocontact!!

I can export Contacts (CSV) but I can't import CSV.
Plus, everybody complain about new changes in contacts and you do nothing.??????
I made a list of about 50 contacts, all ONE BY ONE which is a pain, how come there isn't an easier way to make a contact list?
Well, after finally getting the list together, one day I go to send a message to them and ... the list is gone. I have "no lists". Needless to say I'm pretty frustrated. This makes it pretty tough for me to do what I need to do, and so far it seems like the only solution is for me to re-make this list, one by one, again. Are you kidding me?
Contacts doesn't display when icon selected.

It seems to be impossible to update a contact's email address. A friend writes to you telling you to delete the old address and use the new one: why can't you save the new address?!
I would like to be able to open a contact and see what lists I currently have them in
It would be great if you could check off all the lists you want them in when you type in a new contact instead of having to go back and edit every list
Just typed in a new contact. Yahoo does not recognize it in my database and I cannot add them to list when i go to "edit list" and type in their name for "add contact" which by the way is such a bad interface

Selecting contact is driving me crazy. The check box next to the email is small and hard to select.
Once a user check at least one email, other email should be able to selected click the email, not checkbox!!!
Allow us to add new contacts to an existing list. This feature DOES NOT WORK!
What have you done to the Contacts??? The following features need to return: Full page for viewing a contact, and how about an EDIT feature. You also have an ongoing problem with disappearing Contacts! Sometimes it's information in the Notes and sometimes the entire Contact has disappeared. What on earth are you doing???!!!

........ONLY if I get out of Firefox and use Chrome.
Then, I have to press save after EACH edit or they edits are lost. Didn't know that. So after adding ~50 contacts to a list.....I figured I better go back and check....and now I'm redoing them all.
WHY is Yahoo making us do this?
WHY can't we have the old contact list that actually WORKS?!?!?!
I know Yahoo isn't WalMart, but own a small business and I would never treat my customers like this. NEVER!

A business that ignores it's customers and users won't be a business for long. Ad revenue is based on users and clicks.
I have already gone to Outlook and had it replicate my yahoo account, both mail and calendar. I have Outlook update that replication every year or two. Both Outlook and Gmail have processes to copy your Yahoo mail over. It not a bad idea to use as a backup. I also export my contacts periodically just in case.
To M on YH -- perhaps all these issues reported but never corrected is WHY Yahoo is a "dying platform."
M on YH commented
Thanks for the reply, Anonymous.
I have already heard back from Yahoo Cares. I repeated my direction to this User Voice to read the hundreds of pleas, requests and begging from their customers to fix their system.
We'll see if the even bother.
I urge everyone to start posting their pleas on Twitter. Yahoo won't be able to hide behind this blog. Their miserable performance will be out there for all the world to see.
BTW, that's another one of those things Yahoo should fix. Why can't Yahoo allow one to change a user name??? There are so many loose ends on Yahoo one would almost think it must be a start up. Not a 20+ year old dying platform.
