I have been trying for the best part of a week to get into my Flickr account. Since their migration from Yahoo I have tried to transfer my email and change my password without any success whatsoever. Because of the time difference, each time I contact them for help, it takes another 24 hours to get a reply. They said my account had got stuck between the two and despite following their instructions to use my hotmail account and request a "forgot my password" to re log in, their reset email never comes through. Getting rather fed up!!1

You should be able to email them directly via the Help link below on their page, and provide your account info details and a explanation of the account login porting to SmugMug problem.
They 'should' be able to correct it at their end.

Unless this is what you've already done. :(

Sorry to read your problems, no fun to be locked out of your account. I guess I was fortunate...it went seamlessly for 3 accounts I had to transfer to SmugMug login.

Had the same issues after the transfer among other things but did eventually get in. I think i'm done with flickr it's just not the same anymore in my opinion.

I find it annoying that we were forced to pay for Pro accounts, promised improvements, and the transfer has produced so many broken services that hasn't yet been restored in over a month (two months?).
There are few alternatives. :(

Especially “free” ones.

I use Flickr for photos that I want quick access to, for web posting, or for viewing on my phone. But I’ve never considered paying for their “service.” I’m sure they’re monetizing me somehow, but I can’t be worth much. :D
