can't setup a new xbox live account

hi there,

im trying help a mate setup a xbox live account. when we try and set it up we go through all the detail input and then agree to terms and conditions. then we get a message saying 'the email address you entered can't be used to create a windows live ID. Please use an address from a diffrent domain.' we are using a running hotmail account like it asks for and have tried making an hotmail account for it make for me. any ideas on what to try next and are the servers down meaning it won't let me do it until they are ruuning again!

HELP PLEASE!!!!!

Can you create the account with a different email address? Don't worry, you can change the WLID of an account once every 30 days, so your friend can change it later.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
