In this article we will tell you how to activate Windows 10 by phone. Detailed instructions with pictures: If you have a Windows 10 license key (if not, we’ll tell you where to get it later in the article) and you get various errors during online activation, then activation by phone can help in this case.
1) The first thing to do is to make sure that you have a Windows 10 license key, if not, you can purchase on next page in our SoftComputers store at a cheap price.
2) After you are sure that you have the key. Go to the command line run as administrator:
3) The next step in the command line is to enter: slmgr -ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX (where “X” is the key itself). After that, a window will appear that the key you entered has been successfully installed.
4) Next, enter the slui 4 command to proceed to activation by phone.
5) Select the country of your location. Then click “Next”.
6) At this step, you will see the following window, it will have two numbers – paid and free, you can call any one, there will be an “Installation ID” under the numbers, it will need to be entered from the phone to the answering machine.
After you, the robot will ask you to enter the “installation ID” – this is the installation code consisting of 9 blocks. You need to enter these numbers from the phone to the answering machine. Then, after entering, the answering machine will dictate the response numbers to you, they will need to be entered in blocks from A to H. After you enter everything, click “Activate Windows”.
In addition, you can activate yourself in text mode without a call using our online service GET CID – Microsoft Self-Service Support, on the next page.
8) If you did everything right, then your Windows 10 should be activated.
