Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I may deduce it from your question, but I need to ask to make sure the assumption is correct, please: Have you forgotten your password ***** the Yahoo! account, and/or does it not work when entered at your login screen?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 9 months ago.

Then why is it a problem, if you have access to your account, can log in and use it ?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
i have a number for my account but its none existance
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 9 months ago.

Then you need to go into your Account Settings, and change that number to one that does exist or does work for you.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
but i cant login due to the fact that i forget my password
Expert:  Russell H. replied 9 months ago.

OK. So in other words, your password ***** ***** working, but you cannot retrieve information or recovery information to a non-existent or not-in-service phone number. Correct?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
very true
Expert:  Russell H. replied 9 months ago.

Then I regret to say I don't know what to suggest for this case, but having elicited the basic facts, I must Opt Out of the case, in favor of another Expert in this category (at no additional charge to you.) I have done so, opening the case up to the general body of Experts.

Thank you for your patience meanwhile.
