Before contacting Sales I recommend checking your email spam folder just in case the mail with installation information got misclassified. But if you don't see that email, yes contacting Sales or Customer Support would proably be my next step. Calling Customer Support might be a quicker option. See this page for contact information.

Sorry, but no. You need to buy a valid license to use it.
Of course, you can get other, similar tools like Octave. It is reasonably a MATLAB clone, though I am sure not completely so. And it is free.

Are you asking how to buy a MATLAB license? If so then in many countries you can purchase directly from Mathworks; https://www.mathworks.com/store/ . However, in some countries you need to purchase through a distributor
Or are you asking how to use Octave? Octave can be downloaded from https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/download

I am not sure what you mean with "for free"? Did you purchase a Student Version and seek how to activate? Or did your university provide you with the installation files, but not with the necessary information how to install and activiate?

Mathworks will automatically send you your activation key when you purchase MATLAB.

Note: MATLAB Mobile itself does not require an activation key or license number. However, if you happen to be eligible to use MATLAB Online, then MATLAB Mobile can be used to access that, and you would need the activation or license in order to be able to access MATLAB Online.

If you do not already have a license, then you need to purchase one.
If you have recently purchased a license, then Mathworks would have sent you the activation key in email.

Error 379: The activation key you have provided is invalid. Check with your license administrator to ensure you are using the current activation key, and verify that you have entered the activation key correctly.

The activation key is simply the number 42, which we have learned from other sources, is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. Unfortunately, now you need to know what base that number must be represented in, to use it as an activation key.

If you purchased your license yourself I believe you should have received the information you need to install via email. Check your spam folder to make sure the message didn't get accidentally caught.
If you're trying to install your school, college, university, or company's license please contact your IT department for assistance as the first step. If they can't help you, then you may want to contact Technical Support using the telephone icon in the upper-right corner of this page.
