Customer Question

I can not open my sbcglobal.net account. It won't recognize my user name or password. Everything keeps sending me to At&t who is no help.
JA: Have you contacted anyone about your account?
Customer: Trying, don't even no where to call. It is through Yahoo, which seems connected to At&T. Any suggestions?

JA: What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: At&T, keeps default to help page, which offer no help just suggestions.
JA: Anything else you want the email expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, just who can help with sbcglobal mail.

Do you remember if you had used any other name or nick name for your childhood best friend (and/or for your favorite childhood pet)?

Favorite pet would have been: Debbie
Childhood friends last name was: Sugar, possibly: Murray
but I tried both of these and neither worked.
Then I got locked out.

Do you currently have internet service with AT&T?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Our Internet is through Comcast.
Expert:  Viet - Email Tech replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry; I believe only AT&T can reset your password, but let me open the issue to other experts. Please do not wait; you will get a response at this web page when another expert contact you. Thank you,

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok, why AT & T? Our service is Comcast and it's a yahoo account....
Expert:  Viet - Email Tech replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry. Since AT&T owns sbcglobal.net email accounts, not Yahoo. I guess you called AT&T, but they did not want to help you? Thank you,
