XBox Live Conversion

I'm trying to get an Xbox 360 and I have a question or two about the conversion of your XBox live account.

Currently I have an active XBox1 account and a couple of two-month vouchers. If I turn my account into a Gold 360 account, I am assuming that I'll incur no extra cost and that the converted account will resubscribe itself on the same day that the old account would've resubscribed itself?

Any idea how I can use my two-month vouchers (from Advent Rising and from Splinter Cell:CT or PT, not sure which) in the converted account?

Conversion is as easy as the walk-through menu when you forst boot your 360. As for the vouchers, I would think you might be able to enter them through the account screen on the 360, and if not the call the 1-800 number and ask customer support.

Thanks Swamp, I guess I don't have to worry about it so much.

Now to find a 360.

I have a Xbox Live question.

I have a 360, if I pay the $10 to change my gamertag, will it reset all my friends lists?

I believe they will carry over. Mine did when I changed via telephone.

Correct. I believe they even send a message to everyone on your list notifying them about the change. Take that with a grain of salt, though, because I read about that feature before the 360 launch and don't know if that actually was implemented or not. Swampy, do you know?

Did anyone get a message when I changed my Gamertag to Sinatar?

When did you change it? I'm guessing that I probably added you after you made the change (same with Swampy), but if you changed it after about mid-December that would answer the question pretty handily.

I didn't get anything about you changing your tag, but it's definitely changed from your old one.

But then, I'm not on a 360 yet.

As an update to my initial question, I changed over my subscription from Xbox1 to Xbox360 Goldand there was no problem. It was set to expire/renew in June, and right now I've got a Gold subscription that lasts until then.

Also, I tried to enter in my two-month free trials, but I got a message saying something to the effect of, you cannot use this trial membership for this service. I forget the exact wording. It also doesn't help that those two-month trial cards were expired.

Negative on the message thingie (but my switch was 360). I think all they do is just change it in such a way that it does not effect your friends list or your place on the friends lists of others.
