  1. GO BACK TO OLD VERSION

    Go back to the old version. This version is HORRIBLE. I cannot enter a contact phone number without an email address. That's absolutely ridiculous!!!!!

  2. Quit changing things

    Am unable to find contacts that I previously had. Can't even pull them up by name. I had a lot of information in the notes that is, of course, obviously gone as well. Your changes are without warning and infuriating!

  4. Email filters

    Filtering emails into specific folders and creating new filter 'rules' no longer work. Why?

  6. Why is editing a contact so difficult?

    Is there a DELAY for editing a new contact? Big hit to our productivity. We are ready to jump ship.

  7. Contact Information lost with new format! Will the calendar be next?

    Today much of my valuable contact information is gone! No notice. No explanation. Just gone. Why? All of a sudden we have a narrow strip next to the inbox with an unrecognizable sort. People are furious. Does anyone at Yahoo care?
    Are you planning to destroy the calendar too?

  9. Don't require an email in new Contacts

    Why is an email address required for a new Contact? Many, many, many contacts we have don't have email, or at least I don't use or need their email. I store a phone number or an address or even just notes in a Contact record. STOP requiring an email address in Contacts.

    BTW, you deleted all of my Contacts that didn't have emails and you have cause me HUGE problems because you wiped out a bunch of really important data for me. Yahoo really sucks now.

  10. Contacts dont sync with I Phone--New yahoo contact system is totally messed up. I am using the paid yahoo as I am using since 1997.

    Contacts dont sync with I Phone--New yahoo contact system is totally messed up.

    I am using the paid yahoo as I am using since 1997. Too much work to move so many thousands emails and my 2000 + contact list to Gmail. The Gmail features are much better and advanced, like google Docs.

    Though I use yahoo, I discourage others joining / using yahoo as yahoo mail has been lagging behind Gmail.

    If this yahoo guys dont make up to mark I am sure to migrate to Gmail very soon. I am fed-up with yahoo.

    Always the free Gmail is…

    Yahoo,
    Please add a CUSTOM LABEL (like in the I phone contacts) for contacts.
    It will allow us to customise the contact information as we like, as a personal preference.

  14. return to old version-return all our deleted contacts back- Yahoo should be sued (Class action) for deleting our contacts

    I had saved many contacts without an email address. Some were saved by phone numbers and some were saved with mailing address. Todays world most contacts are saved on phone numbers.
    I have lost all those saved contacts.
    Have they listened to any feed back to improve. I dont see it yet.

  15. Switching between linked account.

    The old version made it easy to switch between multiple email accounts. The new version makes you log out and log in to the accounts. Please bring back that feature. It is time consuming making my clients wait for me to sign in to each account.

  17. Alphabatize Contacts

    Whey aren't Contacts in alphabetical order now that you've updated them? Sure, they are grouped by the first letter in alphabetical order but within that group they are mixed up. What a jumbled mess Yahoo has created.

  19. Make Folders area wider/user-adjustable

    A few years back you changed Yahoo Mail so that we can no longer adjust the width of the column on the left where Folders are which means that many of my folder names were cut off. Now with the release of the new Contacts interface you have further narrowed that column and many of my folder names are unreadable. Bring back the ability for users to adjust the column width so that we can see our complete folder names.
