    Problem with phone activation


    Hi, I'm having a problem with the phone activation. I'm stuck at the security check dialogue, keeps saying "we cant verify you". Is it just me, or did MS kill phone activation?

    I've used the phone method to activate Win7 on 4 Notebooks in the last 10 days without problems. I always use the traditional landline instead of my cellphone. Then when the Notebooks got updated I got the Win10 as part of the updates and got that done without problem.
