  1. Moving Gamer Tag to New Account


    Hello.

    I recently upgraded my phone from an HTC 8x to a Lumia Icon. I decided this was a good time to ditch my old Microsoft Account for various reasons and associate a new account with my new phone. This is well and good except I can not find an easy way to reclaim
    my gamer tag from this account. I don't really care about saving the achievements or the few purchases I made so I'm not asking to merge accounts or anything. I am just looking to transfer the gamer tag from the current account to the new account.

    Unfortunately, this seems to be an almost impossible process. I have attempted to contact Xbox support multiple times and they don't even seem to understand the request I am making let alone offer any guidance on how to solve the problem. The new account
    does NOT have an Xbox Live account associated with it. I have been very careful to prevent that from happening. However, my old Xbox Music subscription is up and I would like to buy a new one, but I am not going to do that if it means either losing my gamer
    tag or not having access to the subscription on my phone.

    A major hiccup to all of this is that I do not own an Xbox and do not have access to anyone that does. Anyone have any suggestions on how to proceed?

    Thanks.

    :)

    So, how many of you are 10 year Xbox Live gamers?

    I started with the xboxlive beta with the headset and MotoGP disk, but I currently have a new different gamer tag due to my associated Hotmail account going inactive, due to not logging into email, and thus preventing me from renewing the live account. I had to create a new account while I went through the steps of recovery for the Hotmail address. Once recovered, I simply stayed with my new gamer tag... Now associated with the old Hotmail account. :-(

  3. Moving XBL Tag to a new MS account.

    Is it possible to move an XBL tag to a new MS account on an xbox one. I have looked extensively online and spoken with Microsofts chat that explained to me that I would need to move my tag back to my xbox 360 as well as setup a tag on my 360 with the new
    MS account for 30 days and then use the 360 to change MS accounts (xbox 360 use to have a method of doing this) This process is ridiculous there has to be another way.

    xbox one s profiles (family (adult-who occassional plays and 2 children who play)

    Hi.

    So the gamer tag associated with my email (the adult) is there to stay or can I delete that gamer tag and create my own? Then I could create a new profile for son #1 and a new gamer tag.

    I have figured out/created a new profile and gamer tag for son #2.

    So I would like to:

    change the gamer tag that is connected to my email account (the adult).

    If possible I would like to keep my son's gamer tag and just move it to the email account/profile I created for him... (I'm pretty sure you said I couldn't do this but just checking?

    Created a Child Account in Family settings and he has now lost all his achievements and Gold access?

    I have the same problem. Does anyone know if WITHIN the same account, the Gamer Tag and associated history can be moved to a new Child Profile?

    Windows 8 and Xbox Live are on different emails

    From what I can tell I'm going to have to make a 3rd fake account, move the unwanted gamer tag to that account, then after the 30 days time move my real gamer tag over to my actual account.

    This seems like a relay poor set-up.

    Is there anyway to limit playing time when child is playing using my account

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    He actually has a child account, but his 'gamer tag' is associated with my account. From what I have researched, you cannot move a gamer tag to a child account on an Xbox One. If that is not correct, any references to how to do it would be greatly appreciated.
    If it matters, and I know it does for Xbox 360, I have an Office 365 subscription on my MS account. On a 360, that prevents moving gamer tags.
