  2. Live Account over 360 and Xbox One

    At the moment if you go to a mates house you can recover your gamertag on their 360, then when you get home you need to recover your gamertag back to your console (unless you use a USB Stick).

    I am wondering how it will work with the xboxone? As I dont want to keep recovering my Gamertag everytime I move from my 360 to the xbox one and back again. Will it let you have your account on both machines at the sametime?

    Cheers in advance.

    Recovering a Gamertag...

    This is from a previous answer I gave to a poster earlier, but it applies here:

    "The only way to access it however, is to call Support and go thru their account verification process...either via phone or email. I suggest the email, since obviously you have forgotten both the WLID and password of the main, 5-yr old GT. This way
    you can research the answers. Either you will answer the required questions to MS' satisfaction or you won't. In the former, you will be given a link to sent to any email you give them to reset the password and then you will have your main GT back. In the
    latter, they can't do anything for you. The good news is that you can continue to try...some years ago I had an account I was trying to access that I did not know either part and it took me 6 months and some 6 email forms to get it back."

    Recovering a Gamertag

    No worries here. Simply contact phone support by clicking the link below and arranging to have them call you back. Once you answer the security questions they'll be able to give you the email address of the gamertag.

    Welcome back and happy gaming.

    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.

    Recovering gamertag

    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,
