Hotmail Sign Up Problems & Solutions

Do you experience problems while attempting to sign up for Hotmail? Here, we will provide solutions to the most common Hotmail sign up problems.

Outlook requires me to provide my phone number, but I don’t want to. And I can’t register because of it. In some rare instances, Outlook (i.e. Microsoft) requires the users to provide their phone numbers during the registration. Why this happens to certain users is, however, not known. We recommend you to try to sign up for Hotmail with a different IP address and from a different device – usually, this works and Outlook doesn’t require the mobile phone number anymore.

I can’t register my second account on Hotmail. What’s the problem? Currently, Hotmail (Outlook) doesn’t have limitations in regards to how many accounts you can register with it. So, if you can’t sign up for another Hotmail account, the problem is caused by something else. In such a case, we would recommend you to follow our instructions step by step and, if there is an issue, find out what causes it. If this doesn’t help, please contact the customer support of Hotmail.
