I've used telephone activation in recent months, both for Office 2010 and for the reactivation of Windows XP, and it was very tedious to do, but it did work.
That was in the UK though, it may not be available everywhere.
Give it a try if you have a number, it may just work!
Try to do it on a landline phone where the keypad is separate from the handset, you will find it much easier.
Anyone who's done this procedure will know why!

I used the speakerphone function when dealing with a troublesome Win10 reactivation recently :P

As RainyShadow said, speakerphone is certainly another good alternative if you haven't got access to a traditional landline phone!
Personally I'd still rather have the headset to my ear in case the line is bad and/or there's a lot of background noise.
It's not worth the risk of having to start all over again if you mishear something!

Good luck!
:yes:

I checked both and there is for both right in the activation wizard message that Telephone activation is no more supported - regardless of selected country (its on the screen before selection).

Don't worry, my installation of Office 2010 said exactly the same thing, but when I rang the activation number it still worked fine!
Do you have the activation number for your country?

Thanks, both activated with first attempt, bad its not still pleasant experience, too much stress and concentration needed - its probably longest activation key which i saw and wasnt just some hash to copy/paste..
