Why not just phone up? Tell them whats gone on.

No. Xbox do not allow warranties to be transferred.

So no, you cannot scam your friend.

Even so. He'd have to get it repaired for you. I wouldn't even bother ringing up, last one i boiught when i rang up (it was second hand) they cancelled the warranty!

I bought a 360 from someone who had it regitered in his name, he had to ring up and transfer ownership to me (my name) and gave them a password, I then had to ring up tell them my name and password and then the ownership was in my name. 2 years later the 360 RRD and I phoned up and they replced it with a brand new one (this was November 08)

All lies, you need two out of three things for them to transfer the "ownership" over to you on the phone.
You need their address and full name, home phone number or E-mail address, as it is your friend I am sure you can get all those things.
After that, you will be the registered owner, you can then go to the website and request a repair.
It will work fine, I bought one from a car bootsale and like 20 mins after I got it it went RRoD, luckily he had left some of his details (postcode and email) on the hard drive, so I done a bit of Googling, found his address and name and then got it changed over.
