How to Delete a Mobile Contact Number From Yahoo! Mail

By Jennifer Leighton

Yahoo! Mail can be a good way to keep in touch with others and exchange email, but sometimes your Yahoo! profile may reveal more information than you like -- such as a mobile contact number. You may also have contacts for whom you have now-defunct mobile contact numbers listed and would like to delete those. You can easily delete mobile contact numbers, whether your own or those of friends, by editing profiles in your Yahoo! Mail account.
