Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Gold trial i had made a XBOX Live profile and when the free month of gold ran out i was not able to access Live on that profile and thus had to start over on COD4 and Halo 3. I have made a new one since then and really do not want to start over because i have vested time and am at high levels. If anyone knows why this happens or how i can fix it. I was going to go buy an extension of Xbox gold but I'm wondering weather it will work after this one has expired. Thanks

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!

We have played the xbox call of duty for 3 months. game now telling us that profile could not be used . wanted us to renew our gold membership. the console was preowned. do we have to renew or can we...


To play ONLINE Call of Duty then you will need a Gold account. I am assuming that you had bought a 3 month membership to Gold and that is why it has run out?

If the Xbox 360 is used then you still might have a few free trial periods free for 1 month Xbox Live. If I recall previously you could load up to 4 trial accounts. So try just creating a new user profile and see if it doesn't give you one month free for that account? If not then the previous owner has used all the trial accounts.

Make sure you don't use a credit card when signing up to Xbox Live though... it will automatically be set to charge you for renewal when your Gold Account runs out.

If you have to get a Gold account then I recommend you purchase the Live cards at your local store. Some people go onto Ebay and find cheap deals... but I have heard of a few people complain when getting cards that don't work.

Xbox live will not connect to network. Would it tell me if my subscription has expired? I bought new HDD in Dec and received a free 3 month subscription.


yes it would tell you if live had expired !
did you buy the xbox new or used ??
if used it is possible it has been banned from live access ??
if it has been banned buying a new harddrive wont get it back on !
if you bought it new & have never had a live account before then take the free month trial befor you use the 3 month u got ! just go thru the process of signing up to 'silver' membership ! what eva it asks (as it does a few times) refuse 'Gold' membership ! and select 'Silver' !! if it hasnt already had the free 1 month trial it will say at the end of signing for silver.....to try gold for a month to see what ur missing ! :-)
after the month is up...use the 3 month you got !

hope this helps

Do u have to pay to go online on the xbox 360


Hello there.

On the Xbox 360, you'll have two choices of service level: Xbox Live Silver and Xbox Live Gold. Xbox Live Silver will offer limited Xbox Live functionality at no cost, while the Gold package will be a fully functional pay service.

The Xbox Live Silver service means you can connect your Xbox 360 console to a broadband Internet connection and get functionality right out of the box without having to pay any amount of money.

With Xbox Live Silver you can:
  • Create an online Gamer Profile
  • Access the Xbox Live Marketplace
  • Engage in voice and text messaging
  • Talk to a single friend at a time using voice chat
  • Receive video messages from Gold level members
  • Access massively multiplayer online games (additional fees may apply)
The Xbox Live Gold is similar to the current paid Xbox Live service. The Xbox Live Gold service delivers the complete online connection package. With Xbox Live Gold you have all the features of Silver level, and additionally:

  • Play multiplayer games online
  • Video chat
  • Multiplayer online tournaments
  • Participate in Xbox Live online programming, such as Game with Fame, Play and Win, and Prime Time activities.
Hope this clarifies things for you.
