Xbox 360 can't connect to "xbox live party" for me or my friend
I have an xbox 360 pro and i have live gold working (the free month of gold that came with my xbox 360. Everything on live works (games demos, add-ons, videos, friends etc.) except today, me and my friend wanted to chat in a party, so I invited him, except, he told me that he couldn't connect and a message kept popping up saying that he couldn't connect to xbox live party so he invited me and then I had the same message. What is wrong? Is it my connection, his connection or something else?

The xbox live gold membership is paid for when you buy it. It never runs out until you have used all of the time you bought. Like say you bought a 12 month subscription it will last you the whole year until the day you bought the last one and activated it. Only time you use money is when you want to buy something from xbox live. All you need is the internet wifi or direct cable works. You can actually use your xbox live account on any xbox. Say if his friend has an xbox and has xbox live he can then use his account on his friends xbox to play online with his friend. You dont have to worry though every time he goes to an xbox he has to recover his xbox live account info so no one else can use it while he is using it. There is also a few new updates to keep his account safe as well when he does want to do something like that. also you can go into family settings and make it so he cant buy anything with out a pass code even put a timer on it with a pass code to limit time of play. So inclosing no you dont have to buy GB it just uses your internet connection and it does cover the cost of play for as long as you bought the subscription. Hope this helps :)
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!
connect your xbox to internet.
click on your account and select"join xbox live"
when you register you will be started off with a free trial
go to gamestore and buy an xbox live gold membership monthley card or buy a gold member ship online. once your trial runs down you will live off a silver account which doesnt let you join partys, play online with friends,etc.
Form your Xbox 360 you need to be connected to the Internet by a straight LAN line or wirelessly. You can test you connection by going to the setting screen on your Xbox 360.
Once connected to the Internet for your Xbox 360 go to your main account screen and find the tab that says "Join Xbox LIVE" click on that link then follow the simple instructions that the Xbox LIVE will provide. At this point you should have a name in mind for your gamer tag.
Xbox 360 LIVE has several different options available for memberships. They are a monthly, 3-month and 12-month membership accounts. I would recommend a simple one month account if you just wanted to check out the features offered on XBOX 360 LIVE. If your an avid gamer and love to play games online with friends, the 12-month Gold membership is the way to go.
Once you've completed the process of joining Xbox 360 LIVE, they will send you a confirmation email confirming your membership. Now you can log on to Xbox 360 LIVE and start doing this like customizing your avatar and playing online multi-player games.
