    Account/Gamertag Issue - Please Help!


    Hi

    I've got myself in a bit of a mess with my account and looking for help please.

    I created a gamertag when I first got an Xbox 360 many years ago. Then for some reason when I got my Xbox One I created a new account with a new gamertag.

    Now I want to go back to my old account and gamertag (just because I want the old gamertag back) and I don't know what my options are.

    Is there any way the old account can be deleted so that my old gamertag becomes free again? Trouble is on my new account I have paid purchases and a 15 month Xbox Live subscription that I'm not prepared to lose.

    Or, if I was to buy a gamertag change on the OLD account, would that 'free up' my old gamertag so that I can change my gamertag on my NEW account back to what it was?

    Apprciate any help. Many thanks.

    :)

    Sorry to hear it. There's no telling when or if a gamertag will be released if requesting such were allowed (it is not). Also, you could certainly try to change the gamertag on the other account but, again, you're left with the possibility that someone,
    somewhere may choose the same gamertag and get it before you do.

    What you could do however is make sure that the tag you are using on the Xbox One is set as the Home console tag and then add the 360 tag to the family. The Gold membership and games will be shared to the second tag on the Xbox One console.
