Your only option is to phone Sony support.

Contact Customer Support on your local number. All their numbers are available here.

 

They will require you to answer questions to prove your identity. If you are unable to do that then they may ask for documentation to prove your ownership of the account, eg a bank statement. This is to ensure people can't just pretend to be their friends and gain access to their accounts.

 

They'll help you as best they can to ensure you get your account back, it's part of their job Smiley Wink

Isn't there any "forgot password" option when you try to sign-in to your email account?

The 0845 number is around 5p a min on a BT line, however if you call 020 7859 5000, it's the same price as calling a friends house, which is free on some house phones. Smiley Wink

 

Note that the 020 number is Sony UK support and you'll need transferred to PlayStation Support, however it may save you a bomb
