Call Microsoft...they can activate it over the phone for you. It takes about 6 minutes.

When you attempt to activate and it fails they will ask you if you want to activate by phone.

Hi there
when you get your activation refused / problems it should give you other numbers for the country you are in (The call center is probably half way round the planet BTW but it should be a local number).

BUT IF YOU GOOGLE you should find these numbers. They'll direct you to the correct one.
