Default Yahoo Alerts not working after upgrade to

Please Login to Remove!

So I had a bunch of Yahoo Mobile Alerts set up for my various sports teams, and before the upgrade I could always rely on these text messages to keep my up to date on the games I couldn't watch. But for some reason now that I've upgraded to I am no longer receiving these text messages. I checked Yahoo's Mobile Alert site and all of my alerts are still active and set to send to - any idea why this stopped working? Are those addresses no longer valid? It looks like I should have the option to send these updates to an email address instead of as a text message, but I can't seem to figure out how. Any ideas about what happened and how it can be fixed?

Not sure if it is a BB problem - my Yahoo Alerts should go to my work e-mail address and I haven't gotten any today.

My alerts were working last wednesday, but not as of Saturday.

I think the problem is on Yahoo's side. I didn't have the upgraded software either.

Best bet is to email yahoo customer care
