    XBOX Live - Changing region

    your account region doesn't change with redemption codes

    are you buying the right codes?

    xbox gift cards are region locked meaning if you buy us gift codes they only work on us accounts

    if you have a Germany account region but buying us or uk codes that wont work iut will cause a us or uk billing account

    you have to buy currency cards based on your account region and actual region

    so if you are buying us currency cards but have Germany billing address you are causing a split billing where the us currency or foreign currency wont work on your local account

    you don't

    its not a supported service

    currency has always been region locked so has ms points

    you can only use etailers in the specific region at your OWN risk

    Can I use a Xbox gift card with foreign currency to buy games?

    then how can one send a gift from the US to the UK for the Xbox since there is a Region Block?

    Should Xbox live gold be free.

    Invoicing and gift cards

    yep

    This is to make sure you are using the correct gift card

    Gift cards are region specific

    So if you bought Japanese or Canadian but in the US it won't work

    And ironically will cause you more problems

    The balance won't show up on your account until you have the proper billing address to the region

    Foreign gift cards won't work unless you have the proper regional account

    If you use a French card you won't be able to use it on a UK account until you switch to French region with French billing address for example
