Cindy on September 21, 2018:

I know why Microsoft Xbox doesn't have a live number to call.

They don't want to deal with upset, falsely charged accounts. Maybe we should look into a class action lawsuit.

Joey McClurg (author) from Illinois on April 11, 2013:

They use for purchases if you decide to make them later.
