“You’re not on Teams yet, but you can set it up for your organization.” when logging in with private account on PC (Browser and App)

How can I start the Microsoft Teams App on a private computer with my private Microsoft Account without getting the final message “You’re not on Teams yet, but you can set it up for your organization.” which does not lead anywhere?

There are numerous support tickers which didn’t help me further on the following webpages: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/ https://support.microsoft.com/

I need to get this working soon, so any help is appreciated. On my phone the app seems to work, at least I can log-in without any problem.


Additional note on what I’ve tried:

When I try and sign up here with “Sign up for free” I’m forwarded to the following HTTP-Response:

Access to businessstore.microsoft.com was denied
You don't have authorization to view this page.
HTTP ERROR 403

Next, when I click on “Already using teams? Sign in now!”, then choose my account “andreas.luckert@outlook.com”, login, I get to the page where to choose between “Get the linux app” and “Use web app instead”. Following, I click on “Use web app instead” to be forwarded to the aforementioned final page where I can’t seem to get any further saying

You’re not on Teams yet, but you can set it up for your organization.

This is the exact same thing I get when I choose the other option “Get linux app”, install it and log in there. Actually, from there the circle closes, because when I click on “Sign up for teams” it forwards me to the exact same page from where I began the odyssey.

Answer

For some unknown reason, the poster wasn’t getting to the Sign-on screen when using the “Sign up for free” button. This perhaps had something to do with his Linux or browser version which caused the Microsoft site to malfunction.

The solution was to use directly the URL for Sign-up.
