downloading location error

Im military so i have been moved to japan which falls into the list of live countries. but every time i want to download anything it wont let me. i checked my region in my billing section and it shows the US. but how can i change this? or do i even need to change this? next thing is my ISP, its verizon here on base which is a stateside provider. when i look up my ip information it shows my region as the United states.

since japan falls into the list of live countries then i should be able to get DLC?? if so then that would lead me to assume that my ISP (which gives me other problems) just gives me another reason to dislike them. then all i should have to do is take my box to a friends house who lives off station that is using a japanese ISP and im golden? just maybe??

next if all else fails, cant i transfer my profile to one of the new 8Gb usb flash drives for the xbox, ship it to my brother in the states, have him login to my profile and have him download the stuff that im wanting? then ship it back to me and i can then transfer the material back to my HDD?

to make a list

account region - US

physical region - Japan

ISP - Verizon (but when i look up IP information it brings up UUNET Technologies)

Download - Escalation map pack

error - Xbox Marketplace

Having your brother download it like that for you, may cause some licensing issues.

you are still using verizon jp not verizon US

ips go by gateways

en.wikipedia.org/.../UUNET

 

verizon is a global corporation just like AOL in every region they have gateways for each region so verizon japan would be a japanese ip

 

that being said you cannot download us region locked content when you don't actually live in the us

and a region free japanese blackops disk as the region of the disk must also match the region of the account

 

the 3 requirements are as follows same region disk + same region account + same region that you actually live in = download

 

all must match or it will fail
