Our Editor's Notes on Hotmail's Phone-Based Customer Care

Hotmail was a popular free online email service that was eventually purchased by Microsoft and rebranded as Outlook.com. Even though Hotmail has been rebranded, many people still have hotmail.com email accounts.

It should be noted that while Outlook.com offers a free email account option, and continues to support Hotmail.com accounts, it is not possible to receive phone-based customer support. However, if you have a premium Outlook.com account, which you can get with your Office 365 subscription, phone-based and other forms of direct customer support is available.

If you only have a free Hotmail or Outlook.com account, you can submit a request for support through Microsoft's email form or through its AI bot.

Why Do People Call Hotmail Customer Support?

People call Hotmail customer support for a range of reasons, including:

  • Technical support
  • Assistance with setting up an account
  • Reporting possible account hacks and fraud
  • Reporting abuse
  • Assistance with an Office 365 subscription
  • Questions about subscription charges

Best Practices for Calling Hotmail Customer Service

Before calling Hotmail customer service, make sure you have what you need for a successful call:

  • Be in front of your computer or device with your account pulled up (if you can do so). This will help your representative troubleshoot with you.
  • If you are concerned about a billing issue, have relevant documents handy, including credit card statements or an invoice from Microsoft.
  • Have pen and paper at the ready so that you can take notes during your call. This can be very helpful if you have to escalate your case.

How do Consumers Feel About Calling Hotmail Customer Service?

Hotmail account holders are generally satisfied with the premium customer service offered to those with a paid subscription to Office 365. They note that it may take a little time to connect with a human being, but that once they do, the support representative is willing to stay on the phone and work with them to ensure that their issue is resolved.

What Kind of Issues can Hotmail Customer Service Representative Resolve?

Hotmail customer service can resolve most issues with your Hotmail account, including login problems, compatibility issues with your browser or external mail program, problems with hacked and hijacked accounts, researching erroneous charges and other email account concerns.

What Can't Be Resolved With a Call to Hotmail Customer Service?

Hotmail customer service can't prevent others from emailing you, though a customer service representative could show you how to block and filter messages. In addition, if you are using an operating system that doesn't work well with Hotmail, a customer service representative won't be able to resolve that for you.

What Should You Do If You Have an Unsuccessful Call with Hotmail?

If you end a call with Hotmail customer service and feel that your questions were not answered or that your situation was not resolved, don't fret. You still have options.

First, review the notes you took during your original call to Hotmail customer support. If you didn't take notes, jot down what you remember from the call. You may be able to spot a miscommunication or misunderstanding, which you can explain to the person you speak to when you call back.

Next, call Hotmail customer support again. The next agent you speak to might be in a better position to help, particularly if he or she has more training and experience.

If you are unable to resolve your concern over the phone, try a different way of getting in touch. You can contact premium customer support online and via Microsoft's chatbot service. If the bot can't answer your questions, you'll be connected to a live customer support representative. The advantage of live chat is that you will have a written transcript of your conversation.

Another option is to seek help from Microsoft's community forums. This allows you to talk with other Hotmail users who may be able to help you with your issue.

Finally, Microsoft is active on social media. You can try reaching out to Microsoft's social media specialists through Twitter.
