Okay so I'm set to boost with someone today so I used a 48 hour Xbox Live pass code that came with Halo: Reach and it says it redeemed fine but it still won't let me play online. I checked what my membership status was and it says that the trial is active but as soon as I go to play online it doesn't let me. Any ideas? Thanks.

Have you tried playing any other game online? It could help determine whether it's an issue with your current subscription or with Halo: Reach.

I tried Castle Crashers and Guitar Hero: Metallica and neither worked.

Try signing out of LIVE, waiting a few minutes and signing back in.

Just signed out, waited 20 minutes and then signed in again and I still can't play online. I've tried four different games now.

Try to re download your profile and see if that does it.

Hmm, you could try the support forums on xbox.com.

I don't think it's just you. My mate tried a 48 hour code yesterday, and he's still silver, couldn't join parties and the like. About a week or so ago people were having the same problem.

My only advice would be to re download your profile, bit of a shame for you to miss out on the 48 hour trial

I know when it comes to Halo 3 that you couldn't play Ranked games with 48 hour trials, only Social playlists. Maybe this effects Halo:Reach too, although I can't confirm.

In addition, if you try to login a profile as "Guest" to the profile using the 48 hour trial, LIVE can flip out and tell you that neither have the permissions to be online. That happened to me when I was on the 48 trying to trade some Guitar Hero achievements.

I made the following experience, not all 48h codes give you "full" Gold.
Example: The Mass Effect 3 48h Gold code works ONLY for ME3 not for other games.

Companies can tie the goldtrial to a specific game if they want.

The codes in L4D2 or Black Ops are full gold for all games, als example.

:whs The code is most likely for Halo Reach only.

Hey guys.

Thanks for all your replies, I really like the community on this website, very friendly and helpful.
I think Xbox Live was just having a bad day as in the end I decided to purchase a month of Gold which took a day to come into effect.

Thanks again. :)
