I bought my Xbox 360 console over 2 years ago brand new from bestbuy (i was on waiting list for white console for over 2 weeks), at that point I didnt have internet, in 2010, I finally sign up with internet, so I the decided to hook up the internet to my xbox, boom, banned, ok, so I called the video store that I usual go to (they rent movies and games, its club video tron), and they went step by step with me to connect the internet to my console, then a message came up, they told me its because you have slow speed internet, so I said ok what ever, so now 2011, I went to the store and 90% of the games need windows Live, so I tell the guy at the store that live wont work with me because my internet is slow, he said what??, I then went home after buying the game and called him, he made sure all cables are connected proparly, then I read him the message, he said I have to call Live because my console is banned, so I called the fabulous customer support, they helped me setup a Live account because I didnt have one, they bounced me on to 6 different people including 2 supervisors, for an hour and a half, they said they dont know why I was banned, and they said they want another chance, then the last guy I talked to said to right here on the forum
So here I am writing on the forum and I hope this is also not a wase of my time.
P.S. I have another xbox console that is not banned and plus my playstation 3.
