Hello,

So i got a new phone and number today. Went to get on my email and its asking for a key code and it asks to send a code to my old number. Which i nolonger have or have access to. The back up email i had 15 years ago and know nothing about it anymore. I have no options for security questions. What do i do???

There is nothing you can do if you created the account on the mobile device or number you no longer have access to.

Always create accounts on a PC or Laptop (landline IP), and then attach a recovery email to it. That way, you can have multiple ways to recover the account!
