    How do I change it so my old gamertag is associated to my new microsoft account?


    Many moons ago I created an Xbox live account under an old email. This email explicitly showed my name (it had my first initial and last name in it). For various reasons I wont divulge I under went the process of changing my name and want to change that old Xbox account to my new Microsoft account. However Microsoft wont let me add the new email to the old Xbox account because it is already associated to my new Microsoft account which has an automatically generated Xbox account. How do I change this?

    :)

    Transfer saves to different account

    Each 360 account can be associated with a Live account.

    Currently I have:

    old 360 account -> associated with my Live account but with the old gamertag

    new 360 account -> associated with my Live account but with the new gamertag

    The new account got created when I downloaded my profile using my microsoft sign in. The old account was associated with the same microsoft sign in but it didn't recognize my gamertag change. Now it won't let me sign in to live because it asks for my microsoft
    sign in details. I'm guessing the sign in fails because it's trying to find the microsoft account associated with the old gamertag.

    I either need to somehow transfer my saves over to the new 360 account so I can upload them to the cloud, or I need someway for my Xbox to realize that my gamertag changed on the old account so I can sign into live again with that account.

    Thanks for contacting us my name is Samy, I am advisor independent and I will be helping you today.

    How are you?

    I recommend creating a Gmail account and adding it as an alias to your account, after that you can set this email as the main one and delete the other email if you want. On the same link, you can choose which information can be used to log in to your Microsoft account. I for example leave my main email, phone, and alias as login options.

    On this link, you can add an alias to your account.

    It is not possible to transfer your Xbox/Microsoft/Gamertag/Alias account to another account.

    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
    to change the email address associated with your Microsoft account

    Removing an XBL free account

    No, the other way around. I want to do away with the old Microsoft account altogether, and have the old gamertag associated with the newer Microsoft account.

    Basically *** Die E-Mail-Adresse wurde aus Datenschutzgründen entfernt. *** Microsoft account is associated with PreferredGamertag

    and

    *** Die E-Mail-Adresse wurde aus Datenschutzgründen entfernt. *** Microsoft account is associated with UnwantedGamertag

    So I want *** Die E-Mail-Adresse wurde aus Datenschutzgründen entfernt. *** Microsoft account associated with PreferredGamertag, which, it appears, I could do readily enough if the unwanted Gamertag weren't associated with the newer Microsoft account.

    The only thing I can think of, based on your suggestion (and let me know if I have this right) is that I create a new Microsoft account, move the unwanted gamertag to that account, then move the desired gamertag to my preferred Microsoft account?

    This should be so much simpler than it is. :D
