XBOX 360 return

Getting the dreaded "Ring Of Death" and My 2 year old XBox 360 unit freezes.
So I look around online for an address to send the unit back to.
I went to several M/S sites and they just pass me from one e-mail address to another. One site to another.
So the unit has been sitting for like 6 months or so. My daughter mentions it yesterday and so I get of my butt and start looking online again.
This time I search for numbers to call.
Bingo!!!

1-800-4myxbox

Guy with the name of Matt, but sounds like Habeeb talks me through the process. Pretty good at it too, cept I can barly understand him. But we get through it and they are going to send me a box to put it in to send it back to them. Matt says I am covered and I should get it back in 4-8 weeks. Schweet!!!!

Good luck with that. My roomate got his last semester, they sent him back a unit cracked, with a different MAC address and told him that is was "the one you sent into us." LOL

yeah good luck with that one... My old roomate went through hell with MS over the rings of death and even after he got the box, the best deal he could strike was like $150 to refurbish his unit.

That is why I bought a PS3 and never will by an XBox.

My former boss has had close to a dozen 360s since they came out. I think he's finally whittled it down to one unit, but it's collecting dust since he discovered WoW. He's been through the replacement BS many, many times, but he never had a problem with them.

I modded my 360 and I just hope it doesn't break. ""Knocks on wood""

Same thing happened to my brother, his system had a different MAC address and a lot of saves from games he didn't own.
