  1. Recover Gamertag

    Hi, Last year my Microsoft account was hacked and subsequently shut down. I now need to recover my account and reactivate my gamertag either on my old account or a new account, I remember support mentioning something to do with Xbox device id but i cant
    log back into the support feed as my account has been deactivated. Please Help! Thanks.

    Xbox Live and USB sticks

    I have multiple Xbox's in my house, and use a USB stick to move my gamertag between consoles all the time. It works brilliantly.

    It's quicker than recovering the gamertag. You can play straight away rather than waiting for it to recover.

    It's safer than recovering the gamertag. Your gamertag will always be with you, rather than someone else's Xbox, who thinks it would be "funny" to change your Avatar colour to blue.

    It's more reliable than recovering the gamertag. If there is a connection problem when recovering the gamertag, you can corrupt the gamertag.

    Forgotten pass code

    Delete the Gamertag from the Xbox 360 Console. Only delete the Gamertag. Recover the Gamertag. You will need the Windows Live ID and Password to Recover that account.

    They will never recycle the gamertag as your using it.

    It makes no difference if you use the account or not.

    Recovering Gamertag

    Hey there PortAcresTexas :)

    If you cant remember the email address and you have no access to the gamertag on a console, then you would need to go through to
    Phone Support. They will ask you some security questions to ensure that you have ownership of the account and once satisfied, they will release the email address to you so that you can go ahead
    and recover your gamertag.

    I hope this helps.

    Many thanks,
