  1. Deleting a gamertag from my WIndows Live ID


    Hi everyone,

    on my Xbox 360 I had two gamertags. One I always have used but is not asociated with my Windows Live ID. The second is the associated gamertag, which I have never used on the consol and is useless. How can I get rid of the associated ones ? I can not transfer
    the one account to the associated account, as it says both are XBox Live accounts. I thought deleting everyhting from my Xbox would help, but it seems it doesn't. Any ideas ? Thx

    :)

    Is this possible?

    Delete my Windows Live ID (thus deleting my gamertag), then set up a new Windows Live ID with the same gamertag?

    Basically I want to erase my gamertag, clear all achievements and such, then start fresh with that same gamertag.

    first remeber to change your windows live id associated with your gamertag otherwise you will lose your gamertag login

    deleting your windows live id doesn't delete your gamertag btw

    Hmm the only way you can really delete a gamertag is by closeing the account assoicated with the account. I think that the only way you can get close to delete a gamertag i could be wrong.

    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.

    Error Status Code: 8015D080

    If only that was the case. I did not lose my email that was attached to the Windows Live ID/Account, I've lost/deleted the Windows Live ID/Account as a whole. This is resulting in error status code: 8015D080 because the Gamertag is no longer linked to an
    active Windows Live ID/Account. My question is as to whether I can attach a new email/Windows Live ID to the Gamertag.

    account deletion

    You can't delete an account off of Live's servers, but you can delete it off your console. If you want to switch the Windows Live IDs on the account, refer to the following, from here: http://support.xbox.com/en-US/billing-and-subscriptions/account-management/manage-live-id

    Switch gamertags between two Windows Live ID accounts
    If you try to switch your Xbox LIVE gamertag to a Windows Live ID that is already linked to another gamertag, you will receive this message:

    “The Windows Live ID you’re switching to is already linked to another Xbox LIVE account. You must use another Windows Live ID.”

    Before you can switch your gamertag in this case, you must first remove the existing gamertag from that Windows Live ID account:

    1. Create a new Windows Live ID. You will only need this Windows Live ID as a temporary means of moving your gamertags. After the gamertags have been switched, you will no longer need this Windows Live
      ID.

      Example:

      Gamertag A is linked to Windows Live ID 1.

      Gamertag B is linked to Windows Live ID 2.

      Create a new Windows Live ID: Windows Live ID 3.
    2. Switch the gamertag that is linked to the Windows Live ID you want to use to the new temporary Windows Live
      ID you just created.

      Example:

      Gamertag A remains linked to Windows Live ID 1.

      Switch gamertag B to Windows Live ID 3.

      Windows Live ID 2 is now free.
    3. Switch your gamertag to the Windows Live ID you want to use.

      Example:

      Switch gamertag A to Windows Live ID 2.

      Gamertag B remains linked to Windows Live ID 3.

      Windows Live ID 1 is now free.
    4. To complete the swap of gamertags between the two original Windows Live ID accounts, you must wait 30 days. (A gamertag can be switched only once every 30 days.)

      Example:

      Gamertag A remains linked to Windows Live ID 2.

      After 30 days, switch gamertag B to Windows Live ID 1.

      Windows Live ID 3 is now free and no longer needed.

    Deleting an account to link it to another?

    Make a new Windows Live ID, connect the Xbox Gamertag from the ID on your new laptop to the fake account you just made, link you Xbox Gamertag to the Windows Live ID on your laptop and delete the fake account.

    This is actually the hard way, but I don't really know how Windows 8 works: if you could just delete the ID from your computer and connect the one with your favourite Gamertag that would be the easy way.

    If you need more support let me know.
