I bought a new 360 a couple weeks ago. Since then, I've been trying without luck to recover my existing BlogusMaximus account. Every time I go through the process of entering in my Live ID, my email, my password (all via controller or remote, which sucks) and every time it fails.  It never fails in exactly the same spot each time, but always says the same message:  XBOX Live Signup is not available at this time.

A few days ago, I checked the support section of and it said they were working on some unidentified issue, but now it says everything is operational... but I'm still having problems.

Live has been so slow since the last update. Last time I tried to recover my account from work it took about 3 or 4 times to get it to work.

I'm on my 12th try I think? Apparently the problem is pretty widespread.

You can connect any USB keyboard up to your 360, it makes the whole process a lot easier. Just FYI.

Xbox live has had issues since xmas day onwards roughly.

Gamertag recovery and signing in and multiplayer gaming has all been affected.
