I forgot my yahoo e-mail password and the only recovery

Customer Question

I forgot my yahoo e-mail password ***** the only recovery feature I had added was my phone number. Unfortunately, I had gotten a new phone number and can no longer receive text messages to the number listed in my yahoo account. How can I retrieve my e-mail?

Hello, welcome to JustAnswer my name is ***** ***** I'm one of the experts who will be assisting you today.

Have you previously logged into that email address from the computer you're on now?

If so, may I start a remote session so we can work on the problem together from your computer?

Please reply using the box below.

no, I have not
Expert:  Martin replied 1 year ago.

Do you have access to any device where you've logged into the account successfully?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have a cell phone that no longer has service
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
but I do not currently have it with me, its at home
Expert:  Martin replied 1 year ago.

Hmm - unfortunately our options aren't many, there's no magical way to reset it with the click of a button but if we can get access to either an iPhone / iPad you've used to log into the account or a computer I may be able to recover it for you.

Alternatively, if it hasn't been too long since you cancelled the old phone number, your only choice may be to re-activate it so you can get back in.

Is that something you can do?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Its a possibility, depends on the fees attached to it
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
can a iPhone that no longer has cell service still connect to wifi?
Expert:  Martin replied 1 year ago.

Yes, indeed it can.

Regarding the fees - that's something you need to ask your phone company as they are the ones that would be re-activating the line

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
okay, is there someone that would be available this evening to chat with when I am at home and have access to the old phone?
Expert:  Martin replied 1 year ago.

Sure, I will be here - you can use this very same page to contact me.

You can either save it to favorites by pressing Ctrl+D or check your email for a link back to this page
