Hi, i have just redeemed a 3 month subscription online and it says it has worked and it says i am a gold member, but when i try to get on xbox live on the console i am still a silver member.

How do i set up live


In order to set up an xbox live account you need a few things. First is an internet connection to the Xbox itself. Secondly is an email account, as you need this to set up the live account. Third is an Xbox live subscription for gold if you intend to play games online. When you set up your account, you will be allotted 1 month free of gold subscription, after that, you can buy gold subscription cards at walmart, or kmart, or radio shack. An Xbox live silver subscription is free and allows you to download game content and movies and such, but not play games online. When you connect your box to the internet, you sign in with your profile and your then already on an xbox live silver subscription. You can upgrade to gold again buy either buying a gold card, and entering the code, by redeeming your code through, there is a tab after you push the dashboard button. Or you can choose to put in your credit card information, and have it charge you monthly, three months, or even yearly!

I bought a xbox live card cant fine were to put the numbers to get xbox live


Those features that you cant use are the access. Go to anything that requires xbox live in the main menu and press it. It should then give you a option to connect to xbox live. then you simply follow the on screen instructions and its done!

I keep getting erros when im trying to redeem my 3 month card what do i do?


You receive this error when a secondary account in a Gold Family Pack subscription tries to add a credit card or buy Microsoft Points. Secondary accounts cannot add credit cards to or make purchases with cards over Xbox LIVE. The primary account can add a credit card and transfer points to the secondary account. For more information, read Questions about billing and Microsoft Points for the Xbox LIVE Gold Family Pack.

Hi my daughter has tried to set up a 12 month gold subscription and once she has inputed the code and clicks redeem the page goes to a name and adress - but it's for the USA and requires states and zip...


Did you buy your console in the UK or have it shipped over from the US? Another thing to check is if the code itself is coded for the USA for some reason. Your best bet is to call Microsoft Tech Support and ask them about, they should be able to fix it up for you so that it will work right in the UK :)

I dont know how to set up xbox live help me


Most people say they get a free month when they sign up for xbox 360 for the first time. I was one of those people so I can confirm it. They are two way to do it, online with a PC and with the 360 itself.

go to this link: xbox live signup .Once you get there you will have options. There is a free Silver version that lets you download demos and DLC. This can be upgraded to gold later so you can play online.

You can also sign up for gold but you will need to use a credit card or use a code you can purchase at a electronics,department store or even 711. To redeem a code there is a little menu on the left of the screen. Click redeem code and click on "redeem code" and it will ask you for the code. Put your code in these and your good to go!

To sign up with your xbox be sure you have your xbox connected to the internet and start it. When you start it go into the menu and choose the "try xbox live" option or "sign up for xbox live"......sorry I forget what it is says exactly. Go thru much of the same process.

You will also need a "microsoft passport" it will tie in things like your msn email and msn screenname.

Comment back if you need anymore help or with more questions.

see you on live!!!!
