Are you refering to the account region (when you created the account) or to the e-mail region? If it is the account region then once that is set it can not be changed unless you live in one of the nine newly added regions to XBL, of which you do not. Your only recourse would be to create a new account with the correct region selected. When you do things like this you need to make sure you pay attention to what you are doing and take your time.

 

If it is in regards to your e-mail region then you should be able to change it via your account settings at your e-mail providers website.

This only works for the locale on your Xbox.

You cannot change the region of your account, if that's what you're trying to do.

If you live in a locale not supported by the Xbox system, you can't create a profile to play Xbox LIVE successfully.

That is upto you

Remeber if you Do not live in a Xbox live region you may have issues purchasing content and ms points and subscriptions

Ms points are region locked to the region they are purchased in and must match the account region

Subscriptions cards are not region locked but well you cannot use an out of region creditcard to purchase membership

Alot of content are locked to the region they are purchased in also which makes downloading certain content impossible unless you live in that country
