[QUOTE=BMXJeff;37430709]Yes, here is yet another guide to obtaining a WP7/8 activation code from Microsoft... with an added advantage!
I have helped a handful of people from around the world on XDA to obtain codes successfully using the chat URL below and using a genuine HTC HD7 IMEI code created with my IMEI generator tool. With the advantage of a genuine IMEI code Microsoft have no reason to say no!
- You have a Windows Live account (you will need this for Windows Phone anyway)
- You have downloaded my IMEI generator from here, run it, and hit generate for your code!
- You have an ice cold beer to hand for celebratory purposes
1.) Log on to Microsoft Live Chat here
. Click on 'Chat' and log in with your Live ID
2.) You will be asked for a few details before an agent connects and starts to chat including phone model. As far as Microsoft are concerned, you own a HTC HD7 and can't access the Marketplace or use emails. I recommend not being too 'tech-savvy' to aid your case as the helpless (Microsoft) customer and remember, you ARE the customer and they are there to help you
3.) Soon an agent will respond and They will ask you for a few more details such as network operator and for the IMEI code of the handset. Make sure you have the IMEI from my generator to hand. See the conversation from when I activated my first Windows Phone below for reference. This was also using a code made by my generator
4.) Crack that beer open as the Microsoft agent replies with your Windows Phone Activation Code
Here is the chat conversation from when I obtained my code. I play Emeth, a helpless, innocent customer, devastated by my second-hand HD7 which will not let me use Live Services. I am being attended to by the very helpful 'Bill G' at Microsoft:
Excellent work congratulations to the developer!
Within five minutes I got the code.
