Has the ability to change profile pics been restored? Could have sworn some have changed but i am still unable to do that from my phone?

Best answer: Yes, it has been restored.

But you'll probably have better luck on a desktop or a laptop. Not sure if it's even possible to change it on a phone (try it in Desktop mode). Click your name in the left sidebar, then Edit Preferences. Beside your avatar, click Edit. If you see a camera icon, you can change your avatar. Click the camera icon, choose the pic you want, crop/resize if necessary, and save.

I have changed my profile picture a few times now. It is working but I doubt you can do it on a phone. This is also true to post a picture which you can not do on a phone. I would recommend you use a computer to install your picture.

You can also change your user name on a computer by going to your Account Info just below the profile picture icon. Just click on your user name and change it and make sure you submit.

You will see the change at once, but others will see your old picture if any an user name. It seems it take a day or two for everyone else to see it.

Yes, for more than a month. Your mobile device HAS to be in dekstop mode, AND the image you use as your avatar has to be in meory on your fine and be of certain file size.. You need to do through your YAHOO profile, NOT your YA activity profile. Left click or tap or lightly touch whaFollow the prmpts. be usre if you see a save or apply button buton that left cick or tap that button. THEn go to your YA activity profile and Edit your preferences and and left clci or tap the 'Save button near the bottom. Server computers are stupid. they do NOT save or apply now profile settings until you TELL them to save or apply new setting.

If you don't know hot to put your phone in desktop mode, i can explaing how to do that ..

You can only change your avatar if you have a camera icon on your account. Go to Account Info under the gear, Personal Info tab and click on the camera icon if it is there. If not you won't be able to.
