No idea - but Sky will do this for you (either when you box is bust and waiting for an engineer to turn up and take it away - or you are moving house).

Worth asking I would say.

Relax there ........ it just seems like an odd question. I just don't belive microsoft would even entertain the idea. As Crisp_Rapper said if they let you turn off your account while you move house they would have to let people turn it off while on holidays. Plus the administration costs would be huge, unfortunately microsoft don't make their millions by being overly helpful.

Having said all that you should chance your arm and call them although I think you'd be wasting your time and money. Good luck though, let us know what they say.

Except the MS number is freephone.

Just give them a call and ask them, you'll get a far more reliable answer than from us lot being sarcastic or guessing.

yeah i'll call and ask and thanks to those of you who gave the sensible answer. I think as one of you said if you took a hoilday it wouldn't be put on hold so i will expect this will be the case, but a call to ask won't hurt, well not as much as 3 weeks without my live will.:thumbsup:
