Why does Microsoft not offer SMS activation in the United States (the home country of the company and founder)? Why even bother putting SMS activation if they don't have it? I looked through a few countries by random and found that the ones I clicked didn't have SMS activation. Maybe some of you elsewhere are lucky enough to have it, because I hate that phone system (Windows 7 re-installed a dozen times, can't activate anywhere but on the phone).
Is there any "official" answer, because Google has proved fruitless.
