Put the number in again, if it is not valid you will be given a phone number to call. You will be given the opportunity to put the number in with the touch tone phone. If not sucessful, you will be given the opportunity to speak to a person. It should be settled, at that point.

I know that this is not pleasant, but MS is very helpful in this area. Things will work out.
