For some reason, I am unable to recover (this) gamertag on my new Xbox. As soon as I enter in my password I get disconnected from Xbox Live, and if I try again, it says "Xbox LIVE signup is currently unavailable. Please try again later."
Here are the steps I've taken to try and sort this out.
-Delete partially downloaded profile and tried again (many times).
-Tried to recover to a memory unit (same result).
-Login to Xbox.com to see if there is anything wrong with my account (there isn't).
-Contacted Xbox Support, who after an hour of trying basically the above steps, admitted they were unable to help me.
Why is my account broken? I have a heap of licences I want to transfer to my new Xbox but am unable to do so.
(for reference, I sold my old Xbox about a year ago, and formatted the HDD before I sold it).
