    I dont know if anyone else has had this happened but I have a 48hr that expires in July, and when i go and try and use it, it says its invalid. SO I called xbox and they said it needed to be activated by the store I got it at...and futureshop doesn't know what im talking about. Is there any other way?

    the guy at xbox live was probably just "BS"ing you. There is no way you can "activate" a 48-hr acct, Its inside of a sealed game.

    OK let me clear this up...I didnt steal it.

    The person at xbox said that the code hasnt been used yet but it needs activation.
    I have not tryed to make a silver account yet though....I will try it now. I need to make another e-mail though.

    Look it will always say invalid unless you make the account silver.
    Then you need to sign in with that account WITHOUT ENTERING THE CODE.
    Then you need to go under Xbox Live MarketPlace and look for where it says Enter Code or something like that and then enter it there.
    Then it will work.

    first you make the free silver account then go into the marketplace and redeem your 48hr code

    NO. it is never activated, never.

    Follow what Capo said, that seems to be the most straight-forward way of explaining it.
