Xbox Live sign up unavailable when recovering account.

I was playing GH3 when my Xbox Live profile corrupted. This has happened before, although on a different game.
Last time I simply deleted the gamer tag and recovered it. I tried the same fix this time but every time I do I get told 'Xbox Live sign up is currently unavailable. Please try again later'. 
This happened Friday and I've been 'please try again later-ing' for the whole weekend.
What could be wrong?

If you delete and recover your profile too many times this can cause permanent damage to your account and then making your account useless.

I've only done it once before and my friend can recover my gamer tag to his console. I've called Xbox about it but I need to call them back.

Have you tried again since? Often those errors are temporary.
