    Check if your store is showing dollars or "pesos" because they show the same symbol, I'm sure of that because I used to have it in that currency, those songs are priced at $1.29

    I'm from the dominican republic, and if they were pesos, it should say 55 $, as the exchange rate in my country is 43 pesos per dollar.(1.29 x43) asides, in region i left my phone in usa so i can use bing music search

    I bet your location has something to do with it. I'd say the location and currency settings are not playing nice together.

    I don't really understand, here's my settings: Everything is configured to be USA(Estados Unidos = United States)(Espaol(mexico) = phone language).

    Your prices are in mexican pesos, silly.
    You have to use "Espaol (estados unidos)" for it to work correctly, on dollars.

    Under that logic, games would also have to be under mexican pesos, and they're not, take for example, final fantasy 3, which cost 16 dollars:

    To make sure there were no regional issues, i used an USA proxy, and i browsed to the store site of the game:


    This shows the exact same price, in dollars, plus, the games i have buyed before: assasins creed, doom & destiny, asphalt 7, for example, they have charge me the amount displayed on the store, (i know this because of my credict card history), so, i have proved that your argument is invalid, and that microsoft, is in fact, charging 12 dollars for linkin park's numb, further more, i checked the proxy's ip, and whatismyipaddress.com confirms that i have an USA ip, as you can see in this picture:

    Just change your language to Espaol Estados Unidos, it won't hurt to see if it fixes that way or not.
    Give it a try and tell us, at least until someone more experienced comes

    Edit: also, you should not be giving us your IP, be sure to take that out.

    Ok, i when even further, i changed my phone language to USA english:

    now let's go to xbox music:

    Still 12 dollars for numb, also, that is not my ip, that's the proxy's ip. after all this, i can conclude that, those are in fact the correct prices, and if they're not, how do yo explain that the games and apps also have the same currency( X $)?

    Even better, why don't you upload a screen shoot of your phone?

    Why would this be happening to you? Does Xbox Music have a location setting?
    I would upload a snappy of my 920 for you but unfortunately it's not with us anymore. It broke before the Xbox Music/Video apps.
    I just hope somebody else uploads on
    On a side note: I'm waiting for the 1520 to get to Mexico.
    Edit: Have you seen your XBL account region? Could it be linked with your Xbox Music subscription?

    I can't find any location setting in the music + videos hub, also i do not use xbox music pass, when i buy music, i like to "own it" that is, like in itunes, download the mp3.

    Wow yeah that looks pretty crazy. I think there is a bug there. Im still in the marketplace on WP7 and all of the individual songs are $1.29. Im guessing there is some error and you are seeing the process for the entire album rather than the songs themselves? Maybe contact MS?

    Same here, just checked:

    May be you should check the setting of your xbox account again.
    Try to change the Region to somewhere else and see if the price's changed or not. If not then that price must be bound to your LIVE account and have to be modified using your LIVE account on browser

    FYI, i'm a linkin park fan, however that doesn't mean i'm going to paid 12 dollars for a song, as for this issue, i give up, i'm gonna keep buying my music from itunes and i will not use xbox music store.

    I don't think that's the problem. He was looking at Meteora. Maybe if he was looking at their new songs, but Meteora and Hybrid Theory should be fine.

    Something isn't right somewhere down the line. Prices show just fine for me and I just switched to those settings.

    What you need to review is your actual xbox live/xbox music subscription account locale. Im in CR too with a US account and everything works fine.
