Re: xbox live

Make sure that you have an Xbox Live Gold subscription first,
Second You won't both be able to play at the same time enless it is a game that provides guest support(and in some games WITH) guest support you cannot play anything ranked online. To sign in a game with Guest support hit the guide button on the second controller select choose profile and scroll down, if u see "Guest" as a profile and you did not create it, then that game has guest support, and you can both play.

If u are just trying to let him play alone then you have to sign him in how you would normally

If my son has XBox Live Gold Membership do we just need an internet connection to play or do we require extra GB per month to play?

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 :)

Lost my account on the ghost app, cant get it back, my son profike keep coming up on my phone cod ghost app, im very mad cant see my clan of friends

Simply log into your account on a pc. Make sure your xbox account is linked with your cod account. If it is already, uncheck it, and try again.

My son has created an online ea account to play football on his xbox 360. he can't play because it is telling him he is to young. can i create another account..

Yes, you should be able to create a new XBox Live account for your son.

When you create a new XBox Live account, make sure to edit the date of birth so it is at least 18 years old. This way any and all restrictions on his online gaming experience will be nullified.

Hope that helps!

My son was setting up his xbox 360 250 gb that he bought last night. He was going through the set up procedure and adding the xbox gold live he was asked to put his email address and password then...

Hello Tony

Once an xbox live account has been created, you cant reset it, without knowing the Log in and password.

It looks like he is still stuck on creating the account though.

Best thing to do is create a new hotmail/windows live account on separate computer, like your home PC.

Once you have created the new account, try rebooting and setup your xbox live account again, but this time enter the new user name and password of your new hotmail account.

This should work and you can continue through the rest of the process.

If it doesnt work and you have already activated the account with the old email address, you will need to speak to Microsoft customer services, to reset your account.

Hope this helps

I conected my hard drive to my friends xbox and recovered my old gamertag .... but im not fully on xbox live .. i have a silver account .. so i downloaded an update . when i put my hard drive in 'my' xbox...

The reason that you are not fully on xbox live after recovering your gamertag is because the gold subscription has ran out. The reason for your xbox not having your offline account is because you probably moved your account to your hard drive along with your saved games. If you cannot connect to xbox live, go buy a cat5 cable and connect it to your modem and it should connect you to xbox live so that you can download the update.

Your friend might be connected to your account and is still playing on your account. Give him/her a call and ask to sign out. try recovering again or waiting a day to make sure xbox live can take its time to register your request to recover your account.

Hope this helps : )

My xbox 360 profile is corrupt.

IF your profile is not an xbox live account, your xbox profile cannot be recovered, however, if your account is an xbox live account all you need to do is have no one signed in, press the center xbox button, go down to recover account and enter your information

I am unable to sign into to my live account?

Have you clicked test connection and have it tell you why it cant connect?? If it cant connect to the xbox Live and its not a connection problem, Live might be down, you could be banned, there may be an update you need. Most of the time you cant connect there may be a temporary maintenance for live. If you still cant connect call xbox customer support and ask about your account.
