You can add the 3 months to your  account. The next time your service is to be billed, those 3 months will be used instead and after the 3 months you will be billed for your normal service.

This is according to what I've done.

So when you first turn your new console on and it asks you about Xbox live weather you want to join now, recover your account or join later. if you choose join now and add the three months and go to type in your gamertag it will say "already in use" so how Will it know it's your account to add the 3 months to?

Are you trying to redeem a code?

-

Because it sounds to me as if you've gotten confused over the free 1 month Gold trial that is available three times when you create an account on the console.

-

You get one month per new account for a maximum of three on a console.

It would add 3 months to your current account. Or you can make A new account for 3 months.

First recover your gamertag and then open the guide > scroll all the way to the left > select redeem code and enter it. It will add the 3 months to your current subscription/account/gamertag.

to add the three months to your membership can you also use the data transfer cable to transfer your gamertag profile and whatever else you have to and then add the 3 months? to add the three months you dont have to recover your gamertag first right?

If the console is working without issue, I wouldn't be concerned. :-) If the LIVE time is available via code, you should be able to redeem it on your profile after moving it to the new console.

so is recovering your account and transfering your account through the data transfer cables the same thing? once the account is on the new system or hard drive can it be accessed on the old one?

When you recover you account a version of it will be left behind on the old console and while it may appear to operate as normal it will be unable to connect to Live.

Transferring it with the cable moves the one version from point A to point B.
