    Hi all :hiya: ,

    Now that I've preordered an Xbox360 (twice ;) ), I'm thinking of selling my Xbox crystal(need the funds). The thing is, what happens with Xbox Live? I mean, do I delete all the data regarding my account from the hard drive before selling? if so does this mean I will lose the remainder of my Live subscription when I receive my 360(was hoping to transfer the remainder)?
    Or is it a case of Microsoft registering your subscription to your phone number rather than the console itself?

    Hope someone can shed some light on this for me :lease:

    just delete the data from the hd, u dont lose your live account, u only lose this my using the cancel option on the xbox live bit or by phoning them,then u just transfer to a new xbox/xbox 360 whenever

    (i just done this myself, deleted my account from an xbox a couple of months ago and have just done account recovery on a new xbox and it works fine)

    regards

    Can you suspend you Live subscription?

    360 is still a few months away, it'd be nice if someone at MS could freeze your sub until mid november and save you some cash
