  1. Changing the email address associated with my Microsoft account.


    I'm having to change the email address associated with my Microsoft account, as I'm no longer going to be using the one that's currently assigned to it. I know this is pretty simple to do on my Xbox, but I also have a Windows 8 phone (HTC 8X). I know the
    only way to change the Microsoft account on the phone is to restore it to factory settings and start again - is this going to be the same for me changing my email address? Or will it just ask me to sign back in or something? Also, if I do have to restore my
    phone, is there a quick way of re-downloading all of the music I've downloaded through the Xbox Music store? And what would happen to the stuff I have backed up on Skydrive, would that still be accessible?

    Sorry for all the questions, I just have about 10GB of stuff on my phone that I would be devastated to lose!

    :)

  3. Adding/Changing an email to an existing Gamertag

    Hey dR3K0b!

    Gamertags are tied to a Microsoft account, so changing the email address associated with the Microsoft account will also change the email address associated with that gamertag. There's a guide on

    how to change the email address associated with your Microsoft account
    that can help walk you through that process.

    Changing the email address associated with my Microsoft account.

    Your concerns are completely reasonable! To answer your question, any changes made to the email will require the phone be reset. You will still be able to access all of the account's content using the new email (SkyDrive, purchases, music, etc). I don't
    think there is a quick way to restore all music to the phone. The best way I can think of would be to make a playlist with all of your music at music.xbox.com, and then download the songs from within the playlist in the Music+videos hub. I don't have a phone
    with me at the moment, but I THINK there was a "Download all in playlist" option last time I was doing something like this.

    Hi TK,

    Technically transfers cannot be do but you can change the email address associated with a microsoft account.

    In order to associate the gamertag with another account you will need to create a whole account with an email address and then do the following to associate the gamertag to that account. How
