Yahoo Messenger cant add contacts SOLUTION
There Was an error in the server while trying to add a contact

yahoo messenger error

In last time i noticed one of my Yahoo Messenger ID`s give me one error when i try to add one contact to list: There Was an error in the server while trying to add a contact. Please try again.

Strange thing was not all my ID`s have this error, so i decided problem was not yahoo servers or some software from my computer, was that ID with problem.
So solution for this error was verry simple, after 3 days whithout any chance to add contacts, i checked my list and DELETE ALL CONTACTS wich didnt respond to friend request.
After this acction, my Yahoo Messenger ID it is back to normal.
Reason for this error i think is we added someone to contacts, and maybe that person delete own ID and YM servers trying to send friend request stuck on this error.

PLEASE Like or Share if this help you !

    For sure if try again now will work to add… That thing with “request to add a contact has taken longer” its becouse of yahoo servers.
    Please post if work now to add contacts.

    mipedia,
    i still cant add contacts in one of my id,it gives the same error message “There Was an error in the server while trying to add a contact. Please try again” and from my other ids,i can easily add contacts without the error,and as u told to add some contacts which are already active,still cant add them,in fact if i add any contact it just gives that f**king error,which is irritating me a lot,because i can add contacts with my other ids,others but one……..please help

  7. Ujjwal Says:

    really its works thanks for helping

  8. mipedia Says:

    Sam, I didnt told to add contacts which are already active. I say to delete all contacts what didnt respond to your friend request so, to not have “Add request pending” in your list, after that u will add contacts normal.

  9. judy Says:

  17. mipedia Says:

    nachiket u do same mistake as Sam.. if u read comments will se my answer. Dont add active id .. just delete ALL ID`s whi have “add request pending” delete all and then add ppls.

  18. Jeff Says:

    Where do you find the IDs that are still in “add request pending” status. Thanks.

  19. mipedia Says:

    if dont see on your list and offline contacts use Ctrl+H and u will see full list. After delete all with Add request pending.

  20. Ajunwa Says:

    It works perfectly well like Zackky.

  21. Amir Says:

    Supper, the problem was fixed by your solution. Thank you. I could not add any body to my list for more than 3 months

  22. Amir Says:

    I have another problem:
    “Your request to add a contact has taken longer than expected to complete.
    The operation may have succeed.Please check your Messenger list later”

    What is the reason of this message by Yahoo?

  23. Cy Russ Says:

    My problem was also fixed, eventually. I removed all of my pending add request last night BUT the problem didn’t go away. It just started working meaning I can add contact again but I did another thing that maybe crucial as well. I removed ALL the user IDs in my ignore list and then tried to add a contact and it started working right away :-)

    Thanks to all of you. Yahoo help only says that this is a known issue but does not offer any solution.

  24. shahryar Says:

  25. Rao zahid Says:

  26. Cy Russ Says:

  27. mentolatux Says:

    yesss, thx is work now , your metod work 100%

  28. Milan4 Says:

    mmm THX it realy work.. I have around 30 contacts which still waiting to added.. I delete all and it ok now :P

    but one things.. If I use ctrl+h will see only online contact no all which is added..

    so I must switch my contact to “compact list” (for better view) and than will see if contact is added or waiting ;o) (i have around 700 people in my contct list, and when I press ctrl+h it show only around 200 ;) )

    so anyways, give me your PayPal or other e-currency I will give you some gift (as thanks) ;)
