    I would like to express some appreciation to you
    just for rescuing me from this particular dilemma. Because of checking through the
    world-wide-web and obtaining proposals which are not powerful, I thought my
    life was done. Existing without the presence of strategies to the difficulties you’ve fixed through your entire short post is a critical case,
    and the ones that might have in a negative way affected my career if I hadn’t noticed your blog post.

    Your own personal understanding and kindness in touching all things was
    excellent. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not encountered such a thing like this.
    I can also at this moment relish my future. Thanks very much for this reliable and
    result oriented help. I won’t be reluctant to refer your blog to anyone who needs support about
    this area.

    Oman No is invalid, Please share Microsoft activation No. for Oman

      Ian Matthews July 18, 2018 at 3:47 pm

      Microsoft can change or shut down numbers periodically, so I would try calling a different country from the list. Any of the numbers will get you to the same place.

  4. rav February 23, 2018 at 3:08 am

    I just confirmed that Microsoft still shows Zambia activations as (27) (11) 361 7000 . I would try another (nearby) country on the list then pres.

    Hello.. You can find an original activation key for Microsoft Office 2016 on the website licence-activation.com

  11. Ruth October 10, 2014 at 8:27 am

    I am still struggling to get an activation code for my phone. I have tried all the possible options given to me by Microsoft support but nothing works for me. Things are just the same.

  12. ruth August 18, 2014 at 11:00 am

    I have failed to activate my windows phone from Zambia as the telephone number listed is invalid

    • Ian Matthews
      Ian Matthews August 31, 2014 at 4:22 pm

      I just confirmed that Microsoft still shows Zambia activations as (27) (11) 361 7000 . I would try another (nearby) country on the list then press 0 repeatedly until someone picks up and you can see what they will do for you .

      I hope this helps.
