    Ok so lately some of the accounts that I purchased have been getting disabled (sometimes twice in a weeks time) and I managed to get them all back multiple times so I'll share what I did.

    If you're receiving a message saying your account has been disabled for violating terms they give you the option of "letting them know" if they made a mistake. As far as my testing has gone, this has worked once for me. If it gets disabled multiple times they will say it CAN NOT be restored. BUT there's a way around that. You can claim that it was hacked!

    First go to this URL: https://help.instagram.com/contact/740949042640030

    Click "my account"

    Then click NO (even if you can access the email account).

    Enter the email address you'd like for them to contact you on.

    Enter your username.

    Enter the email address you used to set up the account.

    I personally chose this option but I think you can use any of them: This account contains pictures that I've created or produced, but I'm not in themI clicked No.

    I clicked Someone I don't know.

    For how they accessed my account I put "Not sure."

    Then upload a photo from your account. I actually don't think this is even that important because on some of my accounts I wasn't even sure which photo was on which account so it may have been wrong.

    Then I received an email requesting the following...

    1. A brief description of the issue you're experiencing, including the date you last had access to your account and how you lost access
    2. The email address you used to sign up for your account

    So I sent this exact response (just removed my personal info). The email below is actually true. I was sending them emails from the email address on the account but they kept bouncing back to me for some reason but they did work from a hotmail address I had.

    They then responded with this...

    I did exactly that and my account was restored within a few business days.

    Hope that helps some of you! Let me know if you have any questions.

    No, you basically file it as hacked - I got my account back that way.

    Your way is very similiar though!!

    He's probably referring to the photos with a code that you're required to send to confirm your identity.

    Oh yea, just take a pic with your phone real quick holding a piece of paper. I don't quite understand why they need it, but it does the trick :)

    Good luck man...it should work! Keep me updated. I'm curious if it works on an account that old.

    Looks like it could die if too many people copy that exact text.

    Anyways this is golden good for all it lasts.. Keep it up, I stopped with Instagram, but can use this model for other means (social websites.)

    I appreciate your creativity ;) !

    I don't think the text in the email is that important really as long as you follow the process. Feel free to change it up, it should be fine.

    This is a 100% automated process from Instagram, so it doesn't make any difference whatever you write. I've written everything from a real explanation like you, to just "The requested photo is attached", and every time just getting the automated reply that my account is now re-activated and they are sorry for the inconvenience.

    I got a reply from Elliot which looks like a copy and paste job.....saying that it got disabled due to ' insert default list of things that will be you banned'.

    So I replied that I understand that but my account was hacked and the hacker was responsible for the disable and that's why I am messaging.

    I think it may be the end of the road for me ill be surprised if they reply back to that.

    So you took the photo with the code after claiming it was hacked and sent it and they replied with that?

    I was told they could not restore one of my accounts after I used the "let us know if we made a mistake" on a disabled account option but then once I used the hacked process, they enabled it again. Make sure you claim it hacked rather than using the "let us know" option on a disabled account. As far as my testing has gone, you can only do that once. Even if you respond to them saying it's hacked, make sure you go through that whole process.

    I went through the hacked process. That reply they gave was saying it was disabled but I still played the hacked card. After I lost that 135K account I rebuilt a new one that's now got 283K..if I can get this one back ill be thrashing my cock in celebration for dayz

    Oh weird ok. Let me know if they respond. I would try maybe doing the hacked process all over with a different email if they had your email on file before.

    Really stupid noob questions, when reactivated--will it be with the new email address provided and old password? Are you providing your real full name, here?
    Also, do you think this would work with an account that hasn't been deactivated but rather dead for over a year? Thanks for sharing.
