    Hey people, so i activated windows marketplace on my HTC after having it for a year :o

    Anyway i was looking at my billing info and realised that that Xbox Live Prepaid 12 Month Gold Membership Card was enabled. Now i didn't authorise this since i buy my codes from online shops such as ebay and was thinking this may have occured since MS realised i have a gold account so they automatically put me up for this deal (sly cows). Could one of you please tell me if this is the case with the picture provided below so i can call them up and cancel it.

    Does the image not just show your existing Pre-Paid card? read the description of the item you have circled in red.

    the last entry on mine shows
    "Xbox Live Prepaid 12 + 1 Month Gold Membership Card. Canceled"
    Which was my last expired card, I guess (don't have a 360 anymore).

    I also seem to have 1,270 MS Points, can I somehow give them to someone?

    I thought that they had some kind of gift thing setup a year or two ago but I never saw anything (nor looked very hard to find it either).

    Taken from http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/support/xbox360/connecttolive/accountfaqs.htm.

    The only thing I could think of is to recover your gamertag on another console, buy stuff on there so they are on the console and available to another account.

    How is that going to work when anything you buy on Xbox Live Marketplace is tied to the Gamertag you bought it with and not the console you bought it on.

    Because it's tied to both.

    Yes it is, you get a console licence and a Gamertag licence, allowing you to play it on the console you downloaded it on without being signed in.

    My mate has 2 xbox's and he downloads all his DLC on the Xbox that doesn't have gold to allow him to use the DLC offline on that machine.

    As PiKe says.

    Yes it is.

    You get two licences when downloading DLC. A console licence and a Profile licence.

    This allows other people on the downloading console to play DLC without having the original profile signed in, but allows the profile to migrate to other consoles and still use it's DLC when signed into live.
