You get what you pay for. I want you remember that.
Outlook.com (and its predecessor, Hotmail) is a free email service. Thus it should be no surprise at all that there is no direct dial-in phone support. Period. Again, you're getting exactly what you paid for.
But that doesn't mean that there isn't customer support in other forms.
This week's fetured article How Do I Contact Outlook.com Customer Service? goes into the details of what you can legitimately expect, for free.
