How about a DirecTV account?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I tried that. I created my bellsouth more ths 12 yrs a go. I just got direct tv a year a go. totally diferent logins
Expert:  Jason Fenoglio replied 1 year ago.

The reason I ask is DirecTV is owned by AT&T which the BellSouth domains are housed under. All of AT&T's e-mail is managed by Yahoo! Mail and if you don't have an AT&T owned account, you're at the mercy of the Yahoo! security questions. Plus, there is no help desk to call for Yahoo!. If you can call the DirecTV help desk, they can try to verify your name with your bellsouth account and can possibly reset your password. I have a SBC Global account and can get help through AT&T/DirecTVs help desk for my account. It's the best chance to get into your account if you can remember your security questions. Their support number is *****(###) ###-#### Ask DirecTV is you can reset the AT&T (BellSouth) account and they may be able to do it for you.
