Unfortunately, if, when you created the account, you have not registered an alternate recovery email address to which you have access to receive an account key, you cannot prove that you are the account's legitimate owner. Hence account recovery is absolutely impossible and there is no way around it.

How can I change myphone number or my alternate email now that I cant access my acount?

You must log into your account with your password or account key and that is the only way to change anything.

But it does not give the option to enter any password.

That is unacceptable , there got to be a way.

Then I wish you luck in finding that way which you believe must exist.

Oh, and if you find it, please let us know.

When is the last time you successfully accessed your account?
