  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.

    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.

    Hey there PortAcresTexas Recovering Gamertag :)



    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,

    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.
