    Going overseas


    I created my xbox live account in the united states and used a US credit card. Now I live in germany, and I'm trying to add my german credit card as a payment option, but I am unable to do so since the xbox only lets me enter US addresses. I am also not
    able to change my billing information to an address outside the united states. What do I do?

    :)

    On number 2, you can't so much pause your subscription, but you can ask to cancel your account and have them send you a code for the remaining time, rounded down to the nearest month. The code shouldn't expire, so effectively it will pause your time.

    Going overseas

    Hi all,

    I am in the USAF, and have a few questions that I need to ask right quick, most about XBox Live Gold.

    1. Will my US subscription work in Korea and the UK, as is, without having to change anything?

    2. If I deploy to a location which has no Internet service, is it possible to in effect pause my subscription, and resume when I return home?

    3. When it comes to most overseas locations, do I just need a new power brick that'll handle the input voltage difference? This one I am sure I have the answer for, but I said a few questions, so needed three.

    Looking forward to the replies

    Thanks both of you for the info,

    Hopefully buying only "US" subscriptions/currency while I am gone will keep me and my kids in the same virtual "region", and not force us to lose any downloaded games we have purchased.

    When we were in Germany on 360 launch, we used a converter/transformer fine, but they run expensive in the long run, would rather just shell out on a new brick. Never been a big online player, so never really tried the gold thing while there. Now though
    I will be in Korea while they are in the UK for a year and know I can get them to communicate with me if we are playing a game.

    Thanks again for the info.

    1. The subscription should run as normal, however it is possible to migrate your account if you do not have any local currency stored. Special offers that are available in the US may not be available in Korea and the UK and vice versa.

    2. It is not likely that you would be able to temporarily suspend your subscription, if I remember I will double check tomorrow.

    3. Again I'll have to check on that if I remember.

    If I don't get back to you just contact support in your current region, I'm sure they'll find the answers for you.

    1. Yes, though it may have a worse experience than at home depending on if the console immediately realizes that you're far away or not.

    2. No.

    3. I believe all you'll need is a new brick, I've heard that you definitely shouldn't use converters.
