I accidently changed my country. Cannot change it back. Can you fix?

Hi support, We live in Belgium, and we are dutch speaking. I accidently changed my region to Netherlands in order to show the XBOX home screens in Dutch (which was before not possible in Belgium). After that I had to match my country of my XBOX live account. I thought that there was no impact, but now I cannot enter my correct billing address, and thus I cannot buy anything. Afterward I have read that the country cannot be changed for 3 months time! What can I do to fix this? Do you want me to send you proof like identity card? Tom

Wait the 3months which was part of the warnings you saw in the migration tool

its not a toy next time read all the warnings

the xbox home screen language will always be in the locale setting

thr only thing affected by the location of your account is your xbox live content

if you only wanted the home screen affected all yiu had to do was sign out of live

This means I really have to wait for 3 months, and in the meanwhile I cannot buy anything from my Microsoft Points / Euro's? This is no fun! Can't I call a servicedesk or so to fix this any sooner?

No. This is all told to you before you confirm the migration. By completing the migration you have agreed to those terms.

Hello, I live in Russia and I found The Lost and Damned DLC for GTA IV only for US Live users, not for Russian (it is very strange, by the way). I changed country (now I think that it was stupid) to US and then my Russian credit card (VISA) were unlinked. Now I can't link it again (because registration needs a State - there are no States in Russia!) and I can't change my country back to Russia. Please help me, I know that I was stupid but I think this is possible for Live Support. If it needed I can send numbers on my credit card or something else. Thank you.

Sorry, but you will need to wait until the 3 months is over and then you can migrate your region back to Russia.
