    Hi ,

    I just want to understand how legitimate is the phone activation method for activating Windows 8 ( with Keys that are blocked for online activation ) .

    Is this some sore of a loophole that we are exploiting ? Also , One activated using phone activation , would the key used for phone activation be the key for my Windows installation , or the key changes ?

    Would this key work while downloading Windows 8.1 using the product key as well ?

    Can someone shed some light ? :confused:

    phone activation itself is 100% legitimate. Who's key you use to do it depends on its morality, not legitimacy.

    Once you use another persons retail key, the NSA, CIA, FBI, KGB, and NFL will be watching! :vertag:

    :p

    So :-

    1. How Does phone activation activates Windows using a retail/VL key xxxx ( that has been blocked for online activation ) ? Is it some loophole wherein MS Blocked the key for activations done online but did not block them to activate via phone ?

    2. Also , Once activated with a key xxxx using phone activation , would this only be the key for my Windows installation ? Would this key be stored in BIOS , and the next time i install Windows will it automatically get activated ? :confused:

    3. Can i use this Key to download Windows 8.1 setup from Microsoft site ? ( As for downloading Windows 8.1 setup MS needs a legitimate product key and checks for its authenticity .)

    What You Think MS Online Activation System is Very Strong To Detect Illegal Activations & Their Phone Activation System is Very Weak To Detect Same :D
    After all it's War Between Them And Open-Source And They Want on Top while Getting Paid LoL. :biggrin:
