THIS SHOULD WORK FOR USA, I ACTIVATED LIKE 4 HD2'S WITH THIS METHOD...IT ALSO WORKS FOR OTHER COUNTRIES, SURF THROUGH THIS THREAD TO FIND OUT WHICH ONES

JUST ACTIVATED MY SECOND FOURTH HD2....

http://support.microsoft.com/contact...at?ws=support#

CLICK ON Product Sales, General Inquiries and Genuine Advantage Questions

TELL EM YOU GOT A HD7(IMPORTANT)

PROTIP
YES GIVE THEM YOUR REAL INFO
NOT LIKE THEIR GONNA SEND GOONS TO YOUR HOUSE TO CHECK IT
THEY ARE JUST REGISTERING YOU
ALSO FIRST TIME I ACTIVATED BY CALLING EM...THIS IS THE SECOND TIME VIA CHAT(HURR DURR)

PS: You need to edit the registry of your phone to make it an HD7.... their are a lot of other threads about that(Xap Touch Explorer etc...)

LE PROOF




The reason he is like "I'd be happy to assist you with your WP7 phones is cause I filled out the little before chat questionnaire about my problem".

Nooooo my hd2 died =[, time to RMA(3/11/2011)

lol, I already got my code but something is bothering me, What is the word you scrambled at the 9th line from bottom ?

"Did the product key work on your end, ***** ?"

Nope, Just curious

Edit ::

Got it, your name

hmm did you chat with them while their call support was open?
Because ever time i try to get my key they just tell me to call their support. As the person i talked to didnt have the tools to generate a key.

Also what reason did you choose for contacting microsoft?

Can confirm that this method works for other countries too. Got my key through US chat and was not asked where I'm from. You also don't need to say the model name of your device, "htc" will be quite ok.

I only wrote that my phone asks for an activation key when I'm trying to connect to the market. The agent was quite happy about helping me activating my phone and asked for my name, phone number an device brand. After a short time i got my code and the agent disconnected.

worked for me on my first try, keep trying

This process worked perfectly for me. It did take three attemps before I got an agent that would provide a key but now I have an activated WP7 phone.
