A Yahoo account

No thank you.Can you just guide me ?
Expert:  Pete replied 7 months ago.

Yes - to recover the Yahoo account, you must complete the online recovery form with as much detail as possible - don't worry if you can't remember everything correctly, just fill it in as best you can and they will review it within 48 hours:

I have tried that already
Expert:  Pete replied 7 months ago.

Did you get a reply from Yahoo?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
no nothing has worked I don't know the phone number or the email address recovery.
Expert:  Pete replied 7 months ago.

If you have not accessed the account in years, please note that Yahoo accounts that have had no activity in the past 12 months are often deleted. Abandoned and obsolete accounts are often quickly deleted from the server, making account recovery impossible.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I have opened that email 2 weeks ago I just forgot the password
Expert:  Pete replied 7 months ago.

Ok, what did the Yahoo response say?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I cant do anything I don't know my accounts password
Expert:  Pete replied 7 months ago.

I understand, however you told me you already tried the recovery process, so what was the response from Yahoo at the end of that process?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Since I didn't now any of the information for the recovery process I couldn't do it . I am asking is there any way I can change my phone number for that account ?
Expert:  Pete replied 7 months ago.

No you cannot change it, otherwise anyone could simply change it and access the account - you need to complete the recovery process with as much information as possible so that Yahoo can make a decision on whether you are the rightful owner.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Ok. Thank you!

You are welcome! :)
