    To-day there are still reports in Chinese forums that KMS+win8WMC is working, all updates installed with no problem.

    Currently there is no KMS available, so they did it with the mini-KMS, add the WMC key, go off-line, and then phone activate. :D

    Phone activation with free WMC key is still available. Tested today on a fresh install on a new PC.

    Gotta love these backdoor phone activation loopholes. Microsoft just dug themselves into a whole which they will never get out of :cool:

    Can someone please provide step by step directions to implement the W8 with WMC key using phone action ? Tito ?
    Once this activation is successful will it become permanent or require re-activation in future ?

    I did the phone activation on WMC today and it's not working. I dialed the UK number the operator to press #1, i did press #1 but it kept saying button not pressed. Try multiple phone still the same as mentioned.

    Plug in jack into microphone slot or just insert jack of any size into the slot.Then try to dial or press the numbers.

    Im in the same situation like bacardi, looking for a guide.
    i did some research on how to activate via phone, but my question is, do i need a retail or mak key in
    order to make WMC work.
    last night ive been installing over and over with different keys and kms activation, but that route is sadly dead.
    Thanks in advance for any help!
