  • The -066- portion of your PID indicates this is an MSDN key. All MS keys have a maximum amount of times that they can be activated before requiring phone activation, the fact that you have to phone activates that your key has not been blocked but has been activated enough times to require phone activation.

    However, there is a possible problem with your key being an MSDN key, these key were sold through subscriptions to developers, some accounts were fraudulently purchased and the key illegaly sold. If you are not an account holder then you have been victimized by one of these fraudulent account holders. Please review the following thread for more information on MSDN keys, if your key becomes blocked this is most likely the cause.
