    Anyone got an ear at Microsoft??


    One of the hardest organisations to get hold of is bloody Mickeysoft. I have a problem and all I get is automated messages.

    Problem. My daughter uses Office 2010 in her company, as she is also a Tech instructor there, she was given codes to download it to laptop for home use, and familiarisation. Her laptop got broken and my insurance compnay couched up for a new one.

    I tried to reinstall Office 2010 but it says the code has been used once too often and she cant use it anymore. Can someone here ask someone there why I cant speak to a HUMAN!

    If she attempting a phone call - the trick seems to be not to select any options, just wait - that forces some poor phone lackey at the other end to pick it up.

    Ah.

    Must be someone here who knows how to get through. Perhaps Noel.

    Try this.I did & got free Microsoft help ---

    Microsoft Product Support Customer Phone Number | Shortest Wait | Best Support | GetHuman.com

    I chose the option for them to call me back so I would not be kept on Hold for god knows how long.

    Call during regular business hours.

    Microsoft contact.


    Good morning, I have never had any trouble and use 0870 6010 100 whenever I need to contact them. The only trouble is they seem to have a very long tea break. Oh yes, there are humans there, it just takes a long time to actually speak to one of them.

    Very best regards from Keith in Derby.
