You can activate via the telephone. XP will give you a number to contact as one of its options. You will need some information available on contact, again XP spells this out.

yes you can activate it from any phone you want and is a free call 0800 number.

when you choose this option windows will display a code (i think its 45 digits long) follow the instructions read to you over the phone to enter it via the phone keypad.

when you finish entering the code you will get another 45 digit code read back to you, write this down and enter it into the box on screen.
