Yahoo treats their free accounts better than their paid accounts


Yahoo! Search blog: New Beta Version of My Yahoo! One of the things about my yahoo that really bugs me is that because I use SBC DSL I get an inferior my yahoo service.

About a year ago SBC and Yahoo! forced me from my yahoo to SBC’s my yahoo. The big difference? A new whopping large banner ad at the top of my my yahoo! page that wasn’t there before. Other than that it’s basically the same thing.

So let’s see. If I don’t pay SBC money I get a better my yahoo for free. If I happen to be a SBC DSL client then I get an inferior product and I have to pay SBC money. I wish there was some way to hide the fact that I’m an SBC customer from Yahoo!.

To make matters worse, of course because again I’m a paying customer and not a free account, everyone else can update their my yahoo account today and I cannot. See the screen shot above. Nice to know that they take care of their paying customers first.

When SBC/Yahoo! forced me into this new my yahoo I lost a bunch of calendar data as a result of the process.

I wish Yahoo! treated SBC my yahoo clients as well as they treated those that use their service for free.

    You can actually convet the SBC page to the new version, sort of.

    When I went to the update link, it converted my SBC page to the RSS one, but it’s not that pretty to look at, and yes, it still has the hay-ooge SBC required banner across the top. It should still work for you.
