I've got a new tablet and setting it up is driving me mad. I've managed to transfer a lot of info from my old tablet but trying to reinstall Yahoo is a nightmare.
I need a verification code and the window is three minutes. Despite many attempts the code has not come through either to my mobile or Google account.

I thought Yahoo had been bought out, I haven’t used it for years. What do you use it for?

Yahoo Mail Blossoming haven't got the energy to change everything. I have a separate Google account for my volunteer job.

Yahoo may have been bought out but it is still going strong and I use it for all my email. I originally started using it because it was compatible with whatever phone I had at the time.
Soda pop - can you contact yahoo for help?

Ok, I was asking because I think you may find it through another path. I’ll ask around, I seem to remember reading something in tech news.

Sorry, only contact number I have is in Canada. I expect you’ve already gone through the usual steps, but here they are just in case.

Thanks everyone I've managed to install it now. My phone has appeared on my new device I didn't do that. I can make calls from my tablet now. I find tech scary at times.😱
