Office Phone activation
If you have the following error message when trying to activate your license key please see below.
Just to be crystal clear, this is not the same error from when trying to activate a license that has been consumed multiple times!
Microsoft will reject the phone verification in a heart beat.
Phone activation is necessary for the re-distribution of a license from discontinued hardware.
This allows the cost to be discounted on a massive scale.
An example of this would be Office new costs £149.99 and when refurbished it is just £9.99 its that simple and its exactly the same license as it was when new, licenses dont depreciate with time but they are discounted due to no retail box, user manual or USB drive with software, it really is that simple!
For example an old laptop from British Airways could be discontinued as they have upgraded there systems to new laptops, the license can be legally deactivated from that motherboard and re-activated on a new motherboard by a Microsoft verified re-seller (Lizosoft).
This is a refurbished license key which although it has been fully deactivated from the discontinued PC hardware it still requires the new owner (yourself) to now complete the process and marry the key to his/her motherboard.
This is a very simple process and all completed via Microsoft's free automated phone service.
Once you have successfully activated the license to your PC then that license is now considered yours.
This means, should you ever re-format your PC or upgrade to a new Operating system you can simply sign in to your Microsoft account and re-download it, providing you dont change your motherboard.
I hope this clears up any confusion. Lizosoft is a licensed system refurbish er and an authorised re-seller of Microsoft products and services.
