Banned Console Questions

I got home tonight to find my console was banned.  My console is not modified, I bought it new and have never had it opened or serviced.  I guess my son and his friends could have been cheating or something else.  If that is the case I need to know what happend, and more specifically why I was not notified, and when I can get it unlocked so I can watch ESPN3?

Thank you for your assistance.

Unless MS does a complete about face, you will:

1)  Never find out why.

2)  Never get it unlocked.

 

You've got 3 main choices:

1)  Use the banned console offline (no Live).

2)  Buy a new console, and transfer everything over (make sure not to transfer anything that was illegaly obtained)

3)  If neither of the above is satisfactory, you can also never use another Xbox console again.

Microsoft do not un-ban previously banned  consoles as they are permanent. They do not ban people's consoles/accounts lightly, they do so after several investigations. 

The most common reason for a banned console is modifying it, but there are other reasons such as marketplace theft.

Apparently they do arbitrarily ban consoles as mine was banned with neither fore warning nor explanation.

They ban consoles for a reason, and they are not required to give either a warning or an explanation. Should they give a reason?, yes!. But that is their call and most people will know exactly what they did to get banned anyway. Those that don't will likely never know the exact reason.
