For a hacker to be able to read your new pass word there has to be a key tracker virus in the phone
take it to an IT or phone repair shop and have it cleaned out check the antivirus system you are using and upgrade to a better system

Always print a list of your contacts. I have done this several times. But by the time you have fixed your e-mail, your contacts may have changed or moved or lost them to moving of lost friendships.
This happens also,
"Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold.
Some people throw away old friends????
I like to answer some of these when I have a chance.
I need someone to help me in my house and I have asked many people but cannot find anyone.
I have had both hips replaced and cannot do as I used to. I do not have much money to pay anyone and that is the problem also.
I cry for help in my townhouse. No one hears me.

With the amount of dependencies constantly growing on the usage of emails it is quite difficult to imagine your email account getting hacked. Losing your personal emails, pictures, contacts, registrations details, confidential files, etc. And once a Yahoo account is hacked, the first thing that is found altered in most cases is the zip code and the password. Hackers even change you alternate email id, in order to gain complete control over the account.
If your account has been hacked, there is no point in wasting time in looking for tricks to get back the account. The amount of time you waste, is the amount of time the hacker gets to browse through the account. So, without wasting time, send in a mail to Yahoo Security department @ "email@example.com" mentioning the details of the problem. Do mention few details like the last password, the last time you accessed the account, and all the information that you had given on the registration page(at-least some of them). You would receive a reply soon, giving you the details to follow.

to change it, you may have to ask a few questions on help desk to retrieve it.or you could cancel the account and set a new one up. you should be able to change your account pasword through customer service then create a new one using the old email address. use a good virus sweeper ie avast or spy hunter to run a check on your system DO NOT use the XP doctor that comes up when you use the internet that itself is a trogen. and i would not recomend any norton programms thy can upset your system big time.

SOURCE: My yahoo email and facebook
Had you ever assigned a special question to your account that only you will know the answer?
It is clear to me that you have probebly use the same password for both your Facebook account and your Email.
You can go here and declare your account compromised. It will ask you for your Yahoo ID and to copy the provided code into the block provided.
Sometimes Yahoo mail servers are comprimised by spam hackers for spam use so don't go accusing you ex's mother just yet.
It would be a good idea to open a new account and tell all the people who you had in your contacts that your Yahoo account has been compromised.
There was a recent scam where hackers were hijacking accounts and sending mails to all your contacts claiming to be you and telling them to deposit large sums of money into a certain account as you are stranded in Nigeria.
With this in mind:
1) Declare your account compromised here.
2) Delete your old account.
3) Create a new account.
4) Assign security questions that ONLY you would know the answers to. (This is a major way in preventing this from happening again)
5) Send emails to all of your contacts that you had in your old account telling them of the compromisation and to ignore ALL emails from your old account.
Your rating for this solution is highly appreciated.
