I have 3 FB accounts and want to consolidate down to 1

I would like to delete my yahoo account. I have a gmail account and an account that is tied to my cell phone where all my friends are. How can I: 1) Delete my yahoo account 2) Move my cell phone account to my gmail?

Nice to meet you, *****!
Do you mean that you want to delete 2 Facebook accounts and leave only one, then change the email address assigned to that Facebook account?

I would like to delete my FB Yahoo account. I also have a gmail account and an account tied to my cell phone number. I would like to only have the gmail account but most of my contacts are in my cell phone account

Okay, got it
Do you have access to all three accounts?

Okay
In the case of your Yahoo account, you can delete the account from the account's settings, so you will need to sign into that account to delete it
Customer Reply
ok

Unfortunately in the case of two other accounts, there are no ways to merge them, as it goes against Facebook Community Standards to maintain more than one personal account
Do you need to change the email address for your account that is linked to your phone number?
Customer Reply
Yes! I would like to change the email address to gmail. How do I do that since it is tied to my cell phone. Also, do I delete the current gmail account first?

What device do you use to access your Facebook accounts?

Mostly my cell phone. However, I am trying to post a Susan G Komen fundraiser on my page and needs to go through my computer and not my phone
