  1. Region Changing


    Hey everyone,

    Firstly thanks for any help and advice anyone can give me.

    I recently moved overseas from Australia and I have updated my region in my account online and also on my xbox. I recently purchased a digital code for an xbox game, however whenever I am trying to redeem the code it says it's from another region.

    The problem is this - my xbox account says the correct region - Turkey.

    When I log into my Microsoft account/live in my account settings it says Turkey.

    But, when I try to redeem the code through my web browser and follow the prompts to the code input screen, at the top next to my name in brackets for the region it says (Australia). I am aware that I can only change my region every 3mths. But before this
    I hadn't changed my region.

    Please help, feeling like I've wasted some money Region Changing :(.

    Thanks in advance,

    Cameron.

    :)

    Changing region

    Hello

    You can check the region of your Microsoft account and change it if necessary by following these steps:

      1. Go to accounts.live.com and sign in with your Microsoft account.
      2. Under Account information, check that the country/region shown is correct.
      3. If you need to change the country/region, select Change.
      4. After you’ve changed the country/region to match the region for your Xbox LIVE account, click Save.
    If you have questions about any other status codes, see the Xbox Error Code Search page.

    ---

    You can change the Microsoft account that is associated with your Xbox LIVE gamertag. Here’s how:

    1. Sign in using your Xbox LIVE gamertag.
    2. Go to Settings and select Account.

    [table][tr][td][​IMG][/td][/tr][/table]

    1. Scroll right to Your Information and select Account Security.
    2. Select Change Windows Live ID. (Your Windows Live ID is your Microsoft account. Find out more.)
      Do one of the following:
      • If you have another Microsoft account, select Yes.
      • If you do not have another Microsoft account, go to accounts.live.com and click Sign up. After you have another Microsoft account set up, select Yes and continue with the next step.
      • Enter the password for the Microsoft account that is currently associated with your gamertag, and then select Sign in.
      • Enter the email address and the password for the new Microsoft account that you want to associate with your gamertag, and then select Sign in.
      • Select Yes, change to change the Microsoft account associated with your Xbox LIVE account.
      • Select Update Contact Information to update your contact information or Done to finish.
    Notes

    • When you change your Microsoft account, your Microsoft Points are automatically transferred to the new Microsoft account.
    • You can make only one Microsoft account change for a given gamertag every 30 days.
    • You must also wait 30 days after your gamertag is downloaded from Xbox LIVE before you can switch that gamertag to a different Microsoft account. If 30 days have not passed since the gamertag was downloaded, you’ll get an error message.
    • Before you can change the Microsoft account associated with a child account, you must provide the Microsoft account information for the adult account that has parental control.
    • You can choose to require input of your Microsoft account password to sign in to Xbox LIVE. For more information on how to do this, see Password-protect
      your Xbox LIVE profile
      .

    I wanted to let you know as well that changing your region to access games and content in that way is viewed as Microsoft as Marketplace Fraud. I'd hate for you to go through all the effort of getting a game for less only to get banned for this. If you are
    using the Xbox One, it is my understanding that the games are region free, so you can always purchase them from online US retailers and shipped to you,
