  1. What do I need to know when changing my Email Address linked with my 5 year Gold sub?


    I'm considering to change my email address to a more recent one, however, I'm trying to find information about what will happen when I do change it.

    I know I lose all my Microsoft Credit, which is fine because I spent it all just to get it out the way.

    I'm also an Xbox Live Rewards member, if I change my email address linked to XBLR, would I have to re-sign up? Cause that would suck.

    Also, I have Uplay and other gaming related apps linked with my Gamertag, would I have to change my email address with them too so they're still linked?

    Would it cause any problems with my Xbox One as well?

    I'm considering to change my email address because I always get emails from my 5 year gamertag, to my recent one anyway so I might as well link them.

    Thanks guys!

    :)

  2. HELP PLZ! With my xbox live account.

    My xbox live accounts name is KingOfStrippers. About 2 months ago my xbox broke, so I cancled my xbox gold membership. I just recently bought a bran new xbox 360 and I went to go reactivate my gold membership, however when I put my email address in that
    was linked to my account (I know this because I still get emails to that address for KingOfStrippers) the account attached to it was not mine. Please let me know what I need to do to fix this.

  3. Linking my existing Xbox Live gamertag to a new email address.

    So I recently stopped using my old email address (awkwardly named one I made when I was younger) and have started using a new one. I would like to know how I go about changing my current email address linked with my gamertag to a different one? I have managed
    to change the contact email address etc... but have not managed to change the email address/Microsoft account I actually log in with.

    Thanks in advance What do I need to know when changing my Email Address linked with my 5 year Gold sub? :)

    Not sure where you heard about the credit thing but it's untrue. When you change the email associated with your gamertag that's all you're doing. All items/games/gold membership reside with the account not the email.

    You'll be fine in all aspects of the account. As for the Xbox One the most you'll have to do is resign in with your gamertag once the email is changed.

    Issue with receiving my Rewards points.

    Thank you.

    When I use the link to billing, it sends a code to an old email address. I changed it in my account on the 16th. I've actually had this current email for two years, but I've been too lazy to change it until recently. When I select the link for 'not using
    this email address' it takes me to the account page and reflects the changes I made on the 16th. I hit 'save' and tried again, but it's still sending the email to my old address.

    Help me Please

    If you know the email (even the mistyped one) and password for the account you can go to account.live.com and sign in this should bring up a screen that basically says that we need to verify the email address associated with your account and in that box
    should be a link that basically says change the email associated with your account and once you do that it will change your sign in email to whatever you put in and should fix your problem.

    Trying to move existing gamertag to my current account.

    Hello, what you would need to do is change the email address associated with the GT you want to use. So if the email address you want to use is tied to another GT you'd also need to move that GT to another email address to free up the one you want to use.
    The following link will assist you in the process of changing email addresses associated with accounts.
