Partner Support Number Changes and Call Routing Guidance

We’ve recently made changes to the Partner Services phone experience, with the goal to make it as clear and simple as possible, ensuring that you select the right option and access the right service first time.

With this in mind, please find below updated call routing options based on your membership level and support requirement..

Please also note:

  • The main number has changed to 0344 800 6006 which means that your call will now likely be part of any inclusive minutes provided with phone packages.
  • As well as Technical Support and Tech Pre-Sales & Advisory Services, you can submit requests online for membership questions, devices and channel incentives. Don’t forget to check out our online communities for solutions too!

  1. Why is this information so hard to find says:

    This should be a very obvious link from your main partner site yet I can only find it by Googling the phone number!!!

    This is a bit hard when you do not know the phone number!!!

    Your customers would like to speak to you occasionally !!

  2. Why is this information so hard to find x2 says:

    I just wasted a day trying to get info like this

  3. alex says:

    Thanks for comments. We will be referencing this blog post on the homepage of the portal going forward. So should be more accessible.

  4. Sanjay Mittal says:

    Why would you change from free number to a 10p per minute charged number? it used to be a 0800 free number and now it cost 10p a minute with an average wait time of 20 minutes. Bit greedy isn’t.

  5. Jen Stirrup says:

    I called this number, but I was told that it is only for Technical Pre-sales and licensing? Has it changed since then? The agent re-routed me to the right place, but I got the impression that happens a lot.

  6. Steven Spray says:

    I’ve always just had tremendous tribulations calling MS in general. More often than not, there’d be no option available for me to choose, relevant to my particular query/issue at the time. I then have no choice but to choose the closest one. Then, holding
    for hours (literally!) only to be told the department I’m at cannot help me and then being transferred to yet another incorrect department. I really get despondent at the prospect of phoning MS

    Support Number Changes have now been updated – please see this blog post for the latest contact numbers

  8. Graham says:

    I too have found that the first option is incorrect and they know nothing of Cloud Signiture Support. [tag:fail] from Microsoft. Very disappointing.
