Xbox Live, and the NonWorkiness

So Xbox Live is apparently down. At least for me. So let's talk about it.
I really wanna get my Rock Band songs, but alas, it's all dead and whatnot.

It's apparently been having trouble for quite a few days. Xbox.com/support claims it's all up and ready, but alas, it still can't do anything on my end. All I get is the "Signing In..." page, and then either an error message, an eternal wait at the page, or it just boots me back to the dashboard.

Sigh.

    Run the Network Troubleshooting test on your 360 and see at what point you're getting hung up at.

    Still not working at all for me. On occasion I get a message about my account being suspended due to payment, but it won't let me login to the account management to pay it!

    You have to use your PC at that point. You can't resolve billing issues via the Xbox 360 itself IIRC.

    I've been randomly disconnected from LIVE over the last few days but it always lets me reconnect immediatly. I doubt it's my connection either.

    It's been up and down, randomly disconnecting since the weekend. Lots of posts about it on the official xbox forums, I heard.

    Actually, bizarrely enough, it's the opposite. You have to use your 360 to put in all your credit info to subscribe, you can't do it online from what I can tell.

    Xbox Live was acting funny for me last night too when I was trying to recover my gamertag. I was able to connect to the network but after putting my gamertag, email and password in, it kept saying that Xbox Live login is not available at this time.

    I just waited till after I ate dinner and everything seemed fine after that.

    As far as billing issues, from what I recall, I'm pretty sure that you have to use your xbox to put all your credit info in to subscribe.

    To sign up, yes.

    To resolve a billing issue with a Microsoft service, no.

    For instance, with Zune Pass I had a billing issue with an expired credit card. I could not log in to my Zune account to fix it. I had to go to Microsoft's website and fix it there. The same happened with my Phantasy Star Universe "Guardian's Pass" or whatever it's called. I believe this is true for Xbox Live subscriptions as well.

    That's correct...to subscribe to a Microsoft service (i.e. Zune Pass or Xbox Live Gold) you must use the hardware/software that you use the service on to subscribe. For Zune Pass, the only way to sign up is through the Zune software, using a Windows Live account. For Xbox Live Gold, the only way to sign up is through your Xbox/Xbox 360.

    However, to resolve billing issues (particularly those with overdue payments), you have to use the website. The reason is: you cannot even log into your account to get to Account Management if you account has an overdue payment. I'm fairly certain this happened to me with Xbox Live Gold and I know for a fact this happened with Zune Pass and the PSU subscription as I detailed above.

    So I apparently cannot sign into Messenger. I don't really know how to fix it, but it's sure putting a damper on my ability to buy Catan tonight. Not to mention to get my Gamer-Score updated online. Anyone have any ideas?

    Don't try and buy anything right now - Live is completely borked at the moment. Reports on various messageboards saying anything involving the marketplace is more than likely going to eat your points right now. I would wait until the status on http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support is back to up and running.

    I've been attempting to recover a tag as well to no success. Match making has been relatively worse than usual as fas as disconnects and my friends list wont show although I am allowed to log into Live itself. Clearly, these issues are widespread so its just a matter of waiting out the storm.

    Yeah, but most of my 360 games are arcade titles and they're seen as trials without being logged to Live. I'm contacting MS about this soon.

    This makes me so happy. All day today my 360 has been freezing when my 360 was signed into/signing into Live. PHEWWW! No fourth 360 for me. *knock on wood*

    Another thing dealing with my own personal Live/freezing stuff, has anyone heard anything on Need For Speed ProStreet being glitchy, as in freezing? I am curious if it was just this Xbox Live thing going on or the game is just crap.
