Hello All, I am setting up my X-Box Live account for the first time. A lot of the information being asked of me was not stated on their website nor the included literature (I may be blind, here, so be patient). First thing I noticed was that they seem to filter GamerTag's. I tried C O Jones, CO Jones, and several other permutations and none would work. I wound up reverting back to one of my earliest Counter-Strike handles before someone robbed (and abused) it on CS. Now, I am being prompted for credit card, birth date, telephone number, and other information after entering a legitimate Subscription Code. Are all of these required, and if so why didn't M$ state this to begin with (rhetorical, here)? Thus, I sit paused at the Credit Card screen. I'm not entirely against submitting this information, but if its not required I'd rather not.
