    Gamertag issue


    Last January 2022 i had an issue with my profile so i was told. at the time i had Gamepass which was a 1 month gift card which i was using. I have an 360 console & a Xbox one S which was fine until i tried to log in on my 360. After a lot of grief trying to sort my issue i was told that gamepass had done something to my profile & that i would end up losing my gamertag as i had to close my account & open a new account yes it got sorted NO issues until today ! My Question is if my gamertag is different now ! to my OLD gamertag! HOW can the old one show up on a game clip capture showing my new gamertag of Link Putter at the start of the clip but my old gamertag Link Reflog at the end. Its all very confusing if anyone could answer this i would be grateful.

    :)

    People are taking tag names all the time so it's entirely possible that those were taken before you selected the option to use it.

    However, a more likely answer is that although the message says that those names are available for Xbox Live they have been used elsewhere within the Microsoft family. Once a tag has been used in one service it cannot be used in another.

    That's actually a great workaround, particularly given you can delete the old e-mail once it becomes the alias.

    Thanks very much for your help!

    Thanks! I think I can probably still do that, I'd just like to remove the old name, it's about 20 years old and the E-Mail reflects the maturity of a 12 year old. I'll give that a bash as a work around.

    If anybody else knows a better way I'd be glad to hear it but I'll try that for now. Thank you! :)

    Hi there,

    I'm afraid it's not possible to just delete a gamertag, it needs to be moved to a different email address.

    To switch an account to a different email address please see the steps on this link:

    support.xbox.com/.../switch-gamertag-to-different-microsoft-account-on-xbox-360


    But since there already is a gamertag present, you will also need to check this link:

    support.xbox.com/.../error-code-80154013


    It has all the steps on how to move accounts around when there already is an xbox live account present.

    Be aware that some steps have requirements like the need to be on a console without being redownloaded for at least 30 days etc.

    Let us know the results
