Customer Question

Trying to log in to an old yahoo email address that is linked to our apple id. From my iphone, it goes through but then says my yahoo account needs updating, login from pc. When I do that, it gives me an error page and in the link at the top says disabled. But when I try to create a new yahoo email address with that same address, says it already exists. How can I get this to open?

It may not be recoverable, I submitted a case with Yahoo. We'll see if they get back to me on it.

I just wait to hear back from you then? Can that account just be deleted then I can add it back?

You would have to use a different username, it appears to be disabled from what I can tell.

It probably can't be restored but I'll let you know what I find out.
