    Move XBox Live GamerTag to different Microsoft Account


    My son has been using a Xbox Live GamerTag associated with my Microsoft Account. I would like to move this GamerTag (along with the associated game progress, credits, etc.) to his Microsoft Account. How can I do this?

    :)

    Hi there,

    -

    you can NOT delete a xbox live account, you can only move it to a different Microsoft Account.

    So you will need to move that unwanted xbox live account to a new (temporary) Microsoft Account and after that you will be able to move your GT (xbox live account) to that Microsoft Account.

    Be aware that you can only move a xbox live account to a different Microsoft Acocunt when it has been on a console for at least 30 days, without it being downloaded.

    This link explains on how to move a xbox live account to a different Microsoft Account:

    Purchases and game data are linked to your Microsoft account and can't be transferred to a different account.

    Hello!

    Unfortunately, there's no way to transfer the gamertag to a different account. The only way to really accomplish what you're trying to do, would be to give him your current account. You would want to change the details on the account to match his (such as
    name, email address, etc.). After that you would have to create a new account for yourself with your e-mail address, which would no longer be in use.

    Hi there,

    to be able to move the gamertag on your email account to his windows live id, you will first need to remove the 'other' gamertag on his live id (Microsoft Account).

    This link describes on how to move a xbox live account, from one email (Microsoft Account) to another, it also contains steps when there is already a dofferent xbox live account present:

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

    -

    In short:

    1. Download the 'other' gamertagto the console

    2. Wait 30 days (A profile needs to be at least 30 days on a console, before it can be moved)

    3. Move the 'other' gamertag (xbox live account) to a different Microsoft Account (email). This will free up his windows live id (Microsoft account)

    4. Move the xbox live account on your email (MIcrosoft Account), to his live id (MIcrosoft Account)

    That should be it, if there are any questions let us know
