Hello,

DELL XPS 8910
1X1RSD2
4175142230

DELL COMPUTER, WIN10 and the requirement to CREATE and USE a Microsoft email account which ONLY texts to client (No voice message / landline option)
I am encountering BILLIONS OF OTHER windows 10-related problems but this is the most pressing.

I had to create a Hotmail account to activate office 2013. (A nightmare in itself)
I NEVER use the account especially because of the following message (which has become the norm):
“Your account has been temporarily suspended”
PROBLEM is that the verification code is only via TEXT which I do NOT use.

Is this sort of behavior specific to Dell or do all windows 10 (Terrible OS) PCs have these features?
A) I.E. Having to create and log into a MS account to use software that CAME with the PC.
And
B) When I AM locked out (seems to be always and for unknown reasons), I can ONLY get a verification code VIA text (and NOT land-line) to try and get into the account again.

Thank you

I recommend contacting Microsoft about this issue, I'm sure they have a way to activate that doesn't require having a cellphone. Let me know what you find.

But there is another solution, I would avoid using Microsoft Office and recommend using the free LibreOffice (no activation required) instead: https://www.libreoffice.org
