Migrate from South Africa to USA?

Pretty long story, I moved from Ireland a little under a year ago to the states.  I wanted to migrate my account over so I can input my states address and pay $$.  I went to migrate, saw that us was not an option and chose south africa foolishly instead..  I have to wait until december 7th to try again, but would I be able to call support to have them manually move it to the states?  Because I feel sorry for South Africa, they have NOTHING on their live service..  I can choose from a whopping 37 arcade games, no indie games, not all map packs etc..  It SUCKS!  Sorry for complaining, someone know what to do?

yep

create a new account

pretty sure the migration tool was pretty clear

You may only migrate to the 9 new regions

USA is not a new region as it was a xbox launch region

If your account region no longer matches your physical location and your country is not one of the newly added regions, you would have to create a new account to reflect your location. If you don’t currently live in a LIVE supported region then you may continue to experience issues with purchasing or downloading from the marketplace.

If you currently live in one of the newly added LIVE enabled regions, you can perform a one-time region transfer on your account. IMPORTANT: This region transfer is permanent and irreversible.

Ok, thanks for the help.  Creating a new account is out of the question however since I have close to 20000 gs, 2nd prestige in BO, 8th in MW2, Colonel in Reach; I have invested too much time into this account to switch.  I hope they make the US a possibility soon because I can literally only play matchmaking on this account..  It's pointless to do anything else :(  But thanks for the help.

Actually you won't be able to migrate your account in December again to any other country except one of the nine newly added regions, Ireland and the US aren't part of those nine.

 

Contact support for your region and see what, if anything, they can do.

Hey EdGiE ZA! Since this thread is dated back to July of last year, I'm going to go ahead and lock it. If you did have a question here we'd be happy to help you out if you create your own thread in this forum. :)
