    Lost 2 step authentication to account(not this one), waited the 30 days to be able to reset...


    As It says in the title, I had a Microsoft account but lost my phone containing the two-step authentication. This prompted me to have to recover the account as shown to me on the prompts on my xbox and wait 30 days however there seems to be nothing changed
    after 35 days and I have gotten nothing from Microsoft support on the matter, they did not ask for a replacement email and I'm just dead in the water here. I set up this account to play free games during the time I can't use my real one, but now I'm extremely
    [Mod Removed - Profanity] and I am not waiting another month. Due to Microsoft support being absolute garbage and having no actual human to talk to and only prompts that direct you to websites I have come in here hopes that someone from Microsoft
    can help me. It just frustrates me how a company like this can not give two
    [Mod Removed - Profanity]
    about support and rely on their community to help because they are too busy elsewhere I guess. I never actually seen a company this but have a nonexistent support line and I have tried to hard to get an actual person to help
    me, but I just think now it's impossible and nobody will help me even if its a problem on Microsoft's end. My only hope now is for someone from support will see this or I got another 30 days of not being able to play on my account with all the games that I
    paid for. I know this is a fan message board, but I don't see another option so I will yell into the darkness and hopefully someone will hear me or I will just wait another month and hope to god that history doesn't repeat itself.

    Thanks for my rant,

    Cheers

    :)

    Hi RiggsJohnson,

    Sorry your having issues updating the phone number on your account. Have you tried updating your number via your Xbox Live account online? Here's ho:

    Update your billing contact information

    If you've moved or changed your name, email address, or phone number, you must update the billing info in your Microsoft account. Here's how:

    1. Go to account.microsoft.com and sign in to the Microsoft account you want to update.
    2. Select Edit profile, and then make the changes needed to update your billing information.

    How long does swapping Gamertags around take?

    I think each time you make a change on a particular account you need to wait 30 days until you make further changes on that one. It's a security thing, and I think this is the 30 days mentioned in the guide (support article) you seem to be following.

    The first 30 days you had to wait was because it was a new account; had you had a third account to hand already and been able to use that, you could have done the first step straight away and not had to wait those particular 30 days.

    Trying to change gamertag to new email. "sorry we can't change your account right now!!"

    You didn't recently perform a password reset on the old account, did you? There are a number of things that trip the 30-day waiting period. Resetting password, downloading profile, changing Microsoft Account email, etc. All things potential account thieves
    might do to lock an owner out of an account. The system, erring on the side of caution, withdraws into its shell for 30 days before popping its head back out. And if you make changes during those 30 days, it resets the 30 days waiting period again.

    Is there a way to change the email used to sign in on the xbox one?

    Hello there tdrWhitefang :)



    If you try to change the email address (Microsoft Account) that is tied to your gamertag, and you come across this error message
    "Sorry, we can't change your Microsoft account right now." then that can be down to one of three reasons.



    1: Your gamertag is less than 30 days old.

    2: You have already changed the email address tied to the account within the past 30 days.

    3: You have downloaded your gamertag from Xbox LIVE to an Xbox / device in the past 30 days.



    In each instance, you would simply have to wait for the 30 days to pass. Please note that if you download your profile to an Xbox or device before the 30 days are up, it will reset the timer and you would have to wait a full 30 days again. Once this time
    has passed, you should be able to change the email address without any issue.



    I hope this helps.

    Many thanks,
