Sms problems in yahoo

My girlfriend in the Philippines has her yahoo set to sign her into her mobile device when she logs out. She gets the messages I send to her through yahoo on her phone but when she responds I only get about 60 percent of them, she is charged for all of them even the ones I do not get. She has spoken with her service provider and that service provider insists it is a problem in yahoo not her service. I have done everything, uninstalled and re-installed, deleted cookies and all temp files, dumped my dns resolver cache, run every spyware program I have, re-started my pc and have done all these things numerous times all to no avail. Any suggestions as to what might be the problem ? Thanks.

Hi peacemaker23, I most appreciate your suggestion. We did everything exactly as you suggested and, unfortunately, it did not correct the issue. After we did it I received the first 3 sms she sent then they just stopped again. There are a few things that have come to mind that were done just previous to this problem occurring that I did not think to mention in my OP. I downloaded the new flash player, I installed a couple new games to my pc, and she, by accident, did a master reset on her phone. Her mobile provider, which is smart wireless, said that what she did with her phone could not be the cause and the the problem lies somewhere on my end. I am completely stumped as to what to do next, any further suggestions would be most appreciated as this is getting quite expensive for us, what with her having to pay for sms that I don't receive and me calling her direct at .70 cents USD per minute trying to talk her though different things to do. I am willing to try anything at this point. Thanks again I really appreciate your time and consideration

Need to change phone number on this account


Log Into My Ymail Account

"Ymail," a division of Yahoo!, is not the same as the Yahoo! email service.
The main different revolves around the URL at the end of your email address.

Instead of "@yahoo.com" these addresses are written as "@ymail.com."
This slight variation might confuse you about how to log into your Ymail account.

The login instructions are similar to that of Yahoo! mail. Additionally, you can recover your ID or password if you have forgotten it.

Visit the Yahoo! login page by typing "ymail.com" into the URL bar.
This takes you to both the Yahoo! email sign in and the Ymail sign in.

Type your username into the "Yahoo! ID" box.
This is the part of your email address that comes before "@ymail.com."

Type in your password.
If your password doesn't work, or you don't remember it, choose the blue "I Can't Access My Account" from the bottom of the sign in box.

Choose the option that describes your situation best. Options include: "I Forgot My Password", "My Password Doesn't Work", "I Forgot My Yahoo! ID" and "My Account May Have Been Compromised". Press "Next."

Follow the on-screen directions to set a new password or recover your ID.

When I send a email from my yahoo mail it shutsdown my yahoo mess


Welcome to FixYa
  • Check your Messenger is Sign in at the Time of Sign in to Yahoo mail
  • Check in MOBILE phone/any other Device as you Signed in
  • Check in any other Browser as you Signed in
  • Check any other yahoo account is Signed in your Computer
  • Restart your PC
  • Sign out from Mobile/any other Device
Yahoo has prevented us from having 2 Instant Messaging capable programs open and active at the same time.
For example, Yahoo Messenger with Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Web messenger, your mobile phone, Ipod, or other computers etc. etc.
Yahoo classifies all these programs as "Different devices or locations". Navigating from one to the other will close one program and you may get the notification message you refer to.

OR someone has hacked into your account- Report to Yahoo and Try to Recover it-Send report Politely and concisely.Do not try to Send More report for Same cause..
