Microsoft Contact Problems yet again!

  morddwyd 12:46 20 Nov 2018

Once again locked out of Skype with a large amount of credit unavailable.

Somehow my whole MS account is corrupt and I cannot sign in.

All the normal password reset features result in a security code being sent. However, somehow the enail address has become corrupt and ends in ".c" not ".com" which is where the codes are sent and I can't access them.

An attempt to use the "edit address" feature results in "This address has already been edited"! impasse

The helpline only gives a menu which a'ways loops back to "reset password", as does any attempt at on line help.

I need Number or an email address that somebody will answer. I suspect it only needs a simple reset operation.

Perhaps you should thank me when something actually happens.

Certainly not.

Regardless of outcome you have already gone to some trouble on my behalf!

I have a what looks to be a comprehensive response from the Executive Office Escalation Team.

It will take me a bit of concentration to work through it but will find a quiet time over weekend, but thought you would like to know I've had a response.

After several false starts, wrong turns, blind alleys and multiple emails I have today logged in from several devices and two platforms.

Thanks very much for your assistance, and please thank your PR contacts for their help.

Excellent news, and thanks for the update. I'll certainly pass your thanks on to the Microsoft PR team.
