  1. Moving gamertag to different Microsoft account


    I have tried countless times to move my gamertag to a different Microsoft account but I'm getting an error that reads , " sorry we can not move your account right now" I have never moved my account to another Microsoft account so the 30 day wait limit
    rule does not apply in this situation. I am trying to set a different Microsoft account due to the fact that I have recently bought n Xbox One. I am not able to access the yahoo account associated with my Microsoft account so I am deciding to move it. I hope
    that you can help me in any way possible

    :)

    Moving gamertag to different Microsoft account

    The 30 day time limit may apply because of other factors, such as recent password changes on the old account, or if the old account has been recently downloaded to the console, or if the billing information has recently been changed. Any significant change
    of circumstances for the old account can trigger a 30 day waiting period for any Microsoft Account email changes.

    How do I delete the gamertag Microsoft have given me?

    Hi there,

    the only way to achieve that is to move that 'generated' Gamertag to a different Microsoft Account.

    In steps:

    1. download that 'generated' Gamertag to the xbox console

    2. wait 30 days (A profile can only be moved to a different Microsoft account when it has been for 30 days on a console)

    3. move the 'generated' Gamertag to a different Microsoft account

    4. move your gamerprofile to the just freed up Microsoft Account

    -

    To download a profile see this link:
    support.xbox.com/.../profile-move-delete


    To Switch a gamertag to a different Microsoft Account see this link:
    support.xbox.com/.../switch-gamertag-to-different-microsoft-account

    Let us know if there are any more questions or results :)

    move gamertag to different Microsoft account?!?!

    it is still possible to do, but would be a pain.

    you would have to sign into the account with the email that you "want" to use for your account at
    https://login.live.com and then close it out, by clicking on security and password (you might get prompted to verify and email or phone number) then scrolling to the bottome and clicking close account, follow
    those prompts. due to the email that you want to use is an outlook, which is Microsoft controlled, you will then need to close all that out and sign into your email. it takes 60 days to completely close the Microsoft account attached to that email. once it
    has closed, you can then try to use it to do the swap.

    NOTE: If you have purchased anything under the gamertag that is associated with the outlook Microsoft account, you will loose it. there is no way to merge accounts to keep that stuff.

    move gamertag to different Microsoft account?!?!

    Hey HowTheFind



    Unfortunately there is not an option on the Xbox One to move a gamertag from one Microsoft account to another, however this is an option to do so on a Xbox 360. If you have one available you can check out this link and learn how to move it.

    support.xbox.com/.../switch-gamertag-to-different-microsoft-account

    Otherwise you would need to contact official support and see if they can do anything to help you out with moving your gamertag to that other MSA
