    My old gamertag wasn’t linked to my old account when I recovered it?!


    Hi

    After finally able to get into my old yahoo email address I was able to have Microsoft send an email to my old email to recover my old account that has my old gamertag “Hazezal”. I recovered it set it up but when I logged into my Xbox it wasn’t available for me and created a new gamertag for me. Please help

    :)

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    Gamertag Expiration. You must sign into Xbox Services at least once in a five-year period, otherwise you may lose access to the gamertag associated with your account and that gamertag may become available for use by others.

    Account Doesn't Exists?

    kinda same issue here.

    so two years ago i deleted my ms account now two years late got a xbox one and created a new account but now i want my old gamertag back so thinking my old account had been deleted i tried to change my gamertag to my old gamertag but got a message that
    "that gamertag has already been taken" then i searched about that gamertag and found out that my old account hadnt been deleted yet and then when i tried to log in to my old account it said " there is no account by that email address". so i guess that old
    ms account got deleted but not the xbl account as i can still see my old gamertag,acchivement,account description and all.so is there any way to recover that old xbl account or the gamertag now by deleting that old xbl account so that gamertag be available
    to put in my new account?

    im searching for a solution too.let me know if u find one.

    Account recovered, but not my old gamertag?

    Hello, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is welcome to the community.

    Hello Ethan, this is strange because when an account is actually recovered it will come with a new Gamertag and not the old one, Microsoft manages to pass all its items to the new account but the Gamertag will have to be another.

    As this forum is public viewing and unfortunately as independent consultants we do not have access there is some data and neither your account, if you want more information about what happens to the account after it is recovered, you will have to contact support again.

    Windows Live ID ERROR

    I have a similar problem. I had an old gamertag that is linked to my now main email address so I wanted to change it, but I had deleted the old gamertag from my xbox so I recovered/downloaded it, and tried to change my email and I got the "Your WILD cannot
    be changed withing 30 days of creating a gamertag or if you changed your WILD within the past 30 days." I see you had to recover your acccount too so maybe it has something to do with recovered accounts being mistaken for new accounts or something
