    My son had an Xbox360 Elite for xmas everything is working fine until he tries to join Xbox live after going through the sign in sceens (we are already MSN windows customers through our computer and now our modem is working properly) we get the message that the service is unavialable and to try again later something we have tried without success on four different days a source of frustration and disappointment for my son given the cost of this technology

    Today is January 1, 2008, I've just tried several times to connect and gotten the "xbox live sign in currently unavailable". Great way to dissappoint customers like my my sons who got this for Christmas and can't wait to try it out. I wonder how long it will take Microsoft to update their systems so people can play.

I have the same problem as you guys. when i recover my profile, i get as far as when you have to accept the the terms. i accept them and it starts recovering it. but half way into the recover, it says "xbox live is currently unavailable, please try again later". i suggest to try it when the server is not as busy, so at night past midnight. microsoft needs to get a new server or let the playstation take it over, ive never had a problem with PS3 yet, and i have online for it.

Posted on Jan 06, 2008

  • omghacks4me Jan 06, 2008

    wait. i might have found the solution. i just tried mine and i finally recovered it. (it took me from 1:30pm to 5:20pm,) but if you keep trying, it will soon be fix. i took me 20 or so try to get mine. if you live in a time zone were it is 5:21 right now (west coast) try to make an account or recover an account RIGHT NOW i dont kno if it helps, but if there is a curtain time that you dont play video games, try to recover it then. less people might be online.

Posted on Jan 04, 2008

Create a whole account and create everything on live rather than plugging in your old hotmail account,zune account, etc. and it should work

Posted on Jan 02, 2008

Nothing like taking down the servers on a holiday when folks are at home wanting to play. Good planning.

Posted on Dec 31, 2007

Maybe it is down for the holidays

Posted on Dec 31, 2007

I have the same problem, xbox live is not available, try again later...
I found some comments and they said that Microsoft is updating the servers and this will be fixed in some hours/ days.

Posted on Dec 31, 2007

Wait for microsoft to fix the problem. they have announced that they are updated the mainframes, and should be completely fixed by the new year.

A proble for this solution is to complain insanely to xbox until they do something because this is ridiculous. I buy an Xbox Elite due to my previous Xbox 360 having a hardware failure which now has to be sent to America for two weeks to be fixed. And now i try to migrate my account from one to the other and it says Xbox sign up is unavailable... can Microsoft do anything right!

The same error message has come up on my screen i actually think its quite a joke. Maybe ill just have to unplug my Ethernet cable out the back of the xbox and try to recover the gamer tag again. hmmm hopefully it should work tomorrow.

Hey guyz... I called xbox today to see what the problem was and they say that due to the high volume of traffic after the holiday system, the server is having all sorts of problems. The guy said to keep trying every now and then and MAYBE it'll work. I'm kinda frustrated myself because I've got halo 3 and I'm dyin' to play it online. Anywayz... sorry to be the barer of bad news... but I guess we all just have to wait a little bit longer :(

If it is saying that xbox live signup is currently unavailable, then it may be that your gamertag has become corrupted on the xbox live server. Your best bet is to call xbox support as this is not an issue with your connection or your console either. It is with their server.
