How to Contact Google & Microsoft
You would think it would be very easy to contact Google – just google Google support right? Well, if you do that, you’ll end up with something a bunch of stuff that isn’t always Google and rarely includes a correct phone number. You’ll find a general support number (sometimes) like these Google support telephone numbers:
United States: +1 855-836-3987
United Kingdom: +44 (0)20-7031-3000
Canada: +1 514-670-8700
But you’re going to have a long wait. You’re going to have to tap all kinds of numbers to direct yorur call because these are all answered by automated systems. It may take you an very long time to tiptoe through the red tap and get through to a real live person. But if you are persistent you may eventually be able to talk to a real person about your problem.
But wait there are other numbers you can call.
If you are located in the USA or Canada (other areas of the world keep reading) we have more numbers for you.

We’re posting this as a service to all of you. If you google Microsoft support about 50% of the result will be for tech support companies who have no relationship to Microsoft at all.. the rest of that 50% will be tech support scams.
Microsoft’s customer service number is 1-800-642-7676. That is the North American Microsoft Support number. It’s answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You won’t be answered by a real person, you’ll have to tap some keys as you listen to the prompts. Microsoft will try to guide you away from talking to a real Microsoft employee by telling you about “self-help resources”. But just be persistent. In our tests we were able to get to a real person within 5 minutes.
If you’re using Windows 10 you can contact support right from your PC. You can even have Microsoft call you or you can schedule a call from Microsoft. See this page to learn how to do that.
