  1. Linking an existing Xbox Live account to a family/Parent or transfer of XBox Live account


    Hi,

    Please help. Does anyone know how I can transfer an Xbox live account to either: -

    Another Xbox Live ID/Account

    Or

    Add it to an existing family/Parent members account ?

    The situation is that my 10 yr old son has an account set up (created using my Wife's details which we have access to but don't need to use anymore). I want to set parental controls on his account and administer his settings using
    my existing Xbox Live parental account. I have tried setting up a new account and the parental controls work fine but he will lose his existing gamers rewards/points etc. So if I cant
    link his account to mine, is it possible that I can transfer his account (& rewards, etc) to the newly created child account?

    Many thanks,

    Confused Dad :-s

    :)

  3. Terms of Use redirect loop

    I go to my account and it says accept Terms of Use and i did. it then says:

    To continue, Xbox LIVE requires your parent or guardian to have a Xbox LIVE account. Your parent or guardian needs to sign in to an existing Xbox LIVE account or create a new Xbox LIVE account.

    i created a new parental account because the old one did not work. i don't know how to connect the new parental account to my account.

    Linking an existing Xbox Live account to a family/Parent or transfer of XBox Live account

    Nothing can be transferred from one account to another, except game saves and that is Game Developer discretion (meaning not all games support it).

  5. Thanks. I managed to sort this, after looking through various forums. I logged into the xbox and edited the bill/payment details. Within here I could edit email address and account details. I linked the email to my online account and this syncs perfectly...including
    his Xbox account on his Windows phone.

    Transferring XBOX One content and Skins to a new account

    Hi there,

    It's not possible to transfer those kinds of purchases between an existing and new account. I would suggest as a work around is to set a new account up for your self, and remove the card from the existing account. As you can purchase content from your account
    as a gift for your child instead. Here's a link to family settings so you can change the parental controls on the console.

    Transfer xbox live to seperate account

    As far as I'm aware you cannot transfer Xbox Live membership from one account to another. Changing family is possible by either removing the kids from one account then adding to another, or by adding both of your accounts to the same family and giving
    both accounts parental control. If you only use one Xbox you could always make that the home Xbox so any account you use on that Xbox has access to Xbox live or by logging both accounts in which also gives live access but transferring live directly from one
    account to another isnt possible as far as I am aware

    Can't accept the terms of use

    some typo's:

    ''The parental e-mail address linked to my account does not exist anymore.''

    ''I have 9 (or probably 8) months worth of Xbox Live on my account.''
