I was just wondering, i saw a silver member playing a ranked match on CoD3 and i was just wondering if thats possible cos i thought you could only play online with gold only so if someone could clean up the confusion for me

Are you certain they were on a Silver account? Sometime the Recent Players list is a bit dodgy and shows everyone on a Silver account and won't show you their achievements when you select one of their played games.

But can't you still use a Silver to play ranked games, just not with matchmaking?

He could have just used the 3 day trial...I have had this happen before too...it's strange to see, but the guy told me his trial expired that day so he was still able to play...

If they're using a 48 hour trial, their card will show it to be silver to everyone else except them.

I can't remember but I don't think you "find it" I think it's just activated when you sign in to xbox live for the first time.

When you create a profile xbox live they ask you if you want to use your free 1 month membership.

also note that you only get 3 free 1 month xbl trials - so you can use a trial on 3 different accounts but thats it. also you cant the 3 trials on one account they must all be used on separate accounts.

You must sign up your LIVE account on your 360 or you will not get your first month free! I did it via PC and missed out :(

Well this person has been playing online ranked and unranked matches with xbox silver for about a week now thats how long iv known them and everytime they log in i check their gamercard and still comes up silver? and then i rang up xbox support and asked them and they said that you can still go online but you cant chat to people, but my friend always talks online so i dunno whats goin on lol cos i recently paid 80 pound for mine and my dads xbox gold membership to play online but if you can play online with silver its a waste :(

I remember i got a glitch for 2 weeks , every1 saw me as a silver member but I was a gold account n I could play as usual. So, thats weird but it may happen.

If you have a 48 hour trial active it will show your account as a silver account but you can play online and chat to people. A 48 hour trial doesn't make your account a gold account, it is '2 days of gameplay' so you haven't got all the benefits of an actual gold account. Maybe your friend has added lots of two day trials to their account.

I doubt it cos you cant buy 48 hour trials they come free with selected games so if they are buyin 30-40 games just for the trial they might aswell spend 40 on gold membership

Exactly true. I was curious about this as my brother inputed a 48 hour trial yesterday but his account still looks Silver to me, yet he was able to play Call of Duty 3 Multiplayer online. :Bounce:

actually i think you can use the trials on more than one account because my freind bought a 360 and used the free 30 day trial that came with it then out other friend gave him a 30 free trial card and he was able to use it

maybe you cant use two cards or something but i dont know
