Is there a recovery email address associated with your Yahoo account by any chance?

no there isn't. I wish I did.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
All I have is my old email address and password
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
my email address became inactive about a month ago and I have changed my phone number since.
Email technician: Jared Schwager,

What is the Yahoo email address you are having issues with?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I only want it back so I can access my facebook page
Email technician: Jared Schwager,

When was the last time you signed into this Yahoo email?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
the end of September last year
Email technician: Jared Schwager,
 replied 2 years ago

Hmmm. Yahoo accounts are only de-activated unless they are 12 months inactive which doesn't seem to fit this situation. Did you have a phone number associated with your Facebook account?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
my old phone number
Email technician: Jared Schwager,
 replied 2 years ago

Ah so both Facebook and Yahoo are linked to your old phone number.

It seems that in this situation the only remaining option would be to get in touch with Yahoo's customer service team. They can be reached at +1(###) ###-####

I've confirmed on the Facebook side there's no other options unfortunately. Yahoo should be able to help you out however so you can get back up and running again.

ok , thanks I guess
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
that was a waste of money
Email technician: Jared Schwager,
 replied 2 years ago

I'm very sorry that I couldn't provide a better answer. Unfortunately Facebook and Yahoo are pretty tight on security and they need a way to verify who you are.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok, I understand. its all my fault I'm so stupid sorry
Email technician: Jared Schwager,
 replied 2 years ago

No you're not stupid. Things happen. The last thing you think of when you get a new phone number is ***** your email and Facebook. I would definitely try that Yahoo number though. That resolved another issue like this that I assisted a customer with in the past.
