Wrong Country

Despite registering from a Canadian address, with an "@live.ca" windows live ID, my Live account seems to think I live in the US, and will not let me enter Canadian account information.

It CAN be changed, canada is not an option for some reason. "You can currently move your account to the following countries/regions: Russia, Poland, Brazil, Hungary, Greece, Czech Republic, South Africa, Colombia, and Chile*. To find information about Xbox LIVE features available in a specific country, please visit the xbox.com website for that country."

There's no way to change an account to Canada. You would have to create a new account with the correct information.

nope, once a region is set it cannot be changed you would have to create the canadian account and FYI nothing can be transferred to the other account but anything that was bought on the gruntl0rd6 account would be accessible on the other account as long as both accounts are on the console that downloaded it.
