    Region Change - How long?


    I did an region account change, but its not updating that I should be in US region now from Canada. About how long does it take? A little background:

    I received a redeem code for $65 from my friend in the US. I totally was not really thinking that it mattered that I'm in Canada and i redeemed it from xboxlive website. So I contacted support and they suggested that I change my region to the US and use
    the $65 and then I can ask for region change back to Can after. Now my one question is, if I download a game while under US region, can i still play it when I go back to Can region on my account?

    Has anyone else had an issue like this before?

    :)

    Region Change - How long?

    Was it a Canada redeemable code or a US code and was it downloaded on your console or someone else's?

    They only open that option up when XBL is available in more regions. So for example, if the UK was a newly added XBL supported region, they would open up migrations to there from regions that were available prior to that. At least that's how it typically
    functioned in the past. I'm not sure if they have any plans to open migration back up at all in the future. So the only current answer is to start up a new account for that region.

    Hi there, ricardo94kv. Unfortunately you'll need to use a code that matches the region in which you currently reside and the region registered to your account. Otherwise you may encounter issues such as the one you are describing. Very sorry for the inconvenience!

    You are telling me you don't see this? Inconvenience? Weather can be inconvenient...not this. Problems that you are able to solve are not and can not be inconvenient. Maybe the word u were looking for is "discrimination"... thats what you should be very
    sorry about. This is an issue you will have to find a solution for. Sooner or later. I prefer sooner when it comes to solving problems. Talk to your boss if you have a brain of your own. Nowadays a lot of people are migrating and when we are, our consoles
    should migrate with us. Regions are discrimination. What happened to equal right?
