XBOX Live Question.?


My 1st of a few questions is:

I used to have an XBOX 360 Arcade, and I used my 1 Month Free Trial of XBOX Live Gold, but I didn’t extend the Membership, well, I ended up selling that XBOX 360 to my brother. Well, I recently bought a new 4 GB XBOX 360 Slim with Kinect, and my question is, can I use my 1 Month Gold Free Trial on my new XBOX 360 with the same E-Mail Address that I used with my old XBOX 360, even though my account is a Silver (I think that’s what it’s called), since I didn’t extend my account to Gold.

My other question is, if I use another E-Mail address on my new 360, and I let the month pass without extending to Gold, can I still use that same E-Mail in 2 Months, if I decide to buy the XBOX Live 2 months from now? Thanks in advance!

BQ: Can you use a Yahoo! Mail Address with XBOX Live? I couldn’t last time I tried to put my address on it, thanks!

  1. You should be able to recover your gamertag onto your new Xbox 360 and add the 1 month free to it. However, if you don’t recover your gamertag, you won’t be able to set up a new account with the same email address.

    On the second question. yes, you can do that.

    And, lastly, yes. you can use any email address you want. All you have to do is go to live.com and set up the Microsoft Live account first with the email of your choice.
