Dear Yahoo, the answer is no.

No. No you can not have my cell phone number. I don't care why you want it. Saying that it'll help me get back control of my email account if someone hijacks it?
You've got my other email...use that. But no, I will not be giving you my cell phone number. I already get enough weird spam FROM you based on what I google search. I can't imagine the calls I'd start to get because of you.

Ick.


Just. Ick.

A lot of the free services have an opt-in option for providing your phone number incase you forget your password; including Google.

Im with you on this! I get enough stupid calls about free cruises and such. Like im stupid enough to believe you'll give me a FREE cruise? Ok.

Oh, and in situations like this, usually there is a "no thanks" button or whatever, but sometimes when i cant find it, i'll just put in my general work telephone number.

Nearly the same here too. My wife, kids and mom are only ones with my cell phone number. Anyone else that has a legitmate need for my phone number gets my landline number. Yahoo doesn't make that cut either.

I agree. It is annoying.

Gmail did it too and now Yahoo. It isn't happening!

It's Ick because I find the practice of trying to get my cell phone number sleezy. Skeezy. Scummy. Those things are icky to me.
Thanks for asking.

It's enough to get spam email and junk mail in my household mail box....my cell phone is off limits to that kind of garbage thankyouverymuch. The only button I see to move past the screen is one that says "Ask me later".
I'm hoping they don't ask.

Gmail asks me all the time. No way. I don't link anything if possible. I don't even like that Youtube and google are linked now. I don't sign into anything using my facebook account. If something happens, the more things you have "linked" to each other, the worse it is.

My Hotmail has that feature and I like it. I have had my email hacked before the cell phone option and it was a pain to get it back. One of the first things the hacker did was change the alternate email addy. Now with cell notification I am told of these changes and can let Hotmail know it wasn't me.

I have the cell option on both my Gmail and yahoo accounts. I have someone who keeps trying to hack my email and this keeps her out and let's me know immediately that she tried again.
