Yeah, the guy at xbox technical support on the phone said that it would cost me $148 CDN +shipping tofix my xbox. I thought that was crazy and didn't accept it.

I thought that they gave youone year warranty, buy appearantly, it was only 3 months. I think Future Shop only gave me one month.

Anyways... Do you know if you can buy extended warranty even though you've had your xbox for more then three months?

Does that apply to most shops in the UK, or did you buy an extended warranty from them?

But does anyone know aboot extended warranty. How much time after I've purchased my xbox do I have to purchase X warranty?

buy one, exchange the serial number tag with a heat gun. Return the broken one and let the store worry about it.

If you are reffering too the 2 year warrenty that MS offers for the Xbox, you have to buy it within 10 days of the purchase.

No you don't. Unless I am the only person on the planet that Bill Gates really truley loves, you can buy your Extended Warranty after the three month wears out...

I called within the three months to get mine fixed. Only 1 month after the warranty ran out they told me I needed to buy the extended. I bought, and now there are too many good games coming out to ship it off...

I figure when I buy a PS2 I will ship it off...
