Don’t you have a landline or something?
um, you CAN use skype to call toll-free numbers without paying.
As you can see in this screenshot, I have no skype credit.
It lets me call this toll-free number anyway. (For example, this is the toll-free number for activating Windows in Austria. Try it yourself.)
Skype is very bloated perfomance-wise and i’m currently using my laptop. I don’t want to hurt performance so i won’t really bother with it.
Then deal with it. Someone’s giving you a solution and all that comes out of you are excuses.
well fuck it i’m going to infect my pc just for activing a fucking operating system.
how ironic. fuck it i’m going to linux

I’ve been thinking for a solution and well KB3138615 did not worked because it was “checking for updates”.
I’m thinking that upgrading to Windows 10 fixes the problem. A while back i did a little bit of research and it says that Windows automatically activates when linked into a microsoft account since the 2016 anniversary update.
Even Microsoft Support (not the forums) says about it.
I’m typing this on a dell laptop running 8.1… Not on my pc. I changed the title to make it more clear
Here’s a shitty poll
- Upgrade to Windows 10
- Crack Windows 8.1
- Give Up
- Be like the alternative universe Gamerappa and go to Linux (very unlikely)
- Downgrade on Windows 7 and crack it.
- Downgrade into a mobile phone (why. just why?)
- seeyouinhellboys’s “grin and bear it and use Skype” option
where’s the “grin and bear it and use Skype” option
you see it?
i’ve added it.
Ok currently according to the pool i should do nothing but to install skype although i don’t have a mic.
Then get a phone plan or use a landline. It’s not that hard.
I don’t have one of those old big landline phones… And phone plans… even though they say it costs “0 bucks”. It’s just marketing bs…
The skype option was just a joke. Actually. If it didn’t existed then “Upgrade to Windows 10” would win.
You really expect those $0 phone plans to be free? Wow are you cheap.
You know you could use Fire RTC
How to roast someone 101
I know that the “0 bucks” thing are marketing bullshit to make people get their “phone”. in reality after some time it costs money.
I could. But. Is it a VoIP service or just something else?
no its completly free no paying needed you can have a custom number too
Not all VoIP services are free, 'cause there are paid ones as well!
Like that shitty TextNow 10$/month plan that makes a “VoIP” phone look like a real phone?
I have no idea why people want me to get a phone/use FireRTC/get skype and activate Windows 8.1… I thinked i could just upgrade to Windows 10.
