The issue in GetHuman2043068's own words
My phone was stolen and now I can't access my account because my new phone hasn't been authorized and I can't have a code sent to my new phone because it is a new phone number. Pls help. And on top of that, I can't currently access the Google account used to authorize this Yahoo account because I can't authorize use via code sent to Yahoo email. It's a vicious cycle of me not being able to access everything ******
