    Swap gamerTag from Account A to Account B


    Hello,

    I have two Microsoft accounts, each one has associated a GamerTag.

    I would like to swap the GamerTag, switch the old one on the new Microsoft account and the new one on the old Microsoft account.

    Time ago I contacted the help center and told me they were working to create a more advanced gamertag tagging system and that in the future this feature could be included in the system.

    Are there novelties? Is it currently possible to exchange Gamertags between two different accounts?

    If it is not possible, would it work to change the old gamertag to something else, and then retrieve that gamertag by modifying the gamertag on the new account?

    I try to explain better:

    Account A -> *** Die E-Mail-Adresse wurde aus Datenschutzgründen entfernt. *** -> gamertag -> OLDGT

    Account B -> *** Die E-Mail-Adresse wurde aus Datenschutzgründen entfernt. *** -> gamertag -> NEWGT

    If I modify the account GamerTag in NEWOLTGT, will the GamerTag OLDGT be available again?

    If it returns to be available, can I modify the GamerTag of account B in OLDGT?

    Obviously paying the two changes to GamerTag.

    What do you recommend me? Thank you so much for support!

    :)

    Gamertag

    Hello CUZINCUZ613

    Switch gamertags between two Microsoft accounts

    If you try to switch your Xbox LIVE gamertag to a Microsoft account that is already linked to another gamertag, you will receive a message that says “the Microsoft account (or Windows Live ID) you’re switching to is already linked to another Xbox account.”

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

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

      Example:

      Gamertag A is linked to Microsoft account 1.

      Gamertag B is linked to Microsoft account 2.

      To swap gamertags A and B between Microsoft accounts 1 and 2, first create a third temporary account: Microsoft account 3.
    2. Switch the gamertag that is linked to the Microsoft account you want to use to the new temporary account you just created.

      Example:

      Gamertag A remains linked to Microsoft account 1.

      Switch gamertag B to Microsoft account 3.

      Microsoft account 2 is now free.
    3. Now switch your gamertag to the Microsoft account you want to use.

      Example:

      Switch gamertag A to Microsoft account 2.

      Gamertag B remains linked to Microsoft account 3.

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

      Example:

      Gamertag A remains linked to Microsoft account 2.

      After 30 days, switch gamertag B to Microsoft account 1.

      Microsoft account 3 is now free and no longer needed.

    Swap gamerTag from Account A to Account B

    Yes, you would have to change one of the gamertags to something else in order to free it up for use on the other account. Keep in mind that the tag may not be freed up immediately.

    Remove Gamertag from windows live ID

    Greetings elfwarrior

    You can associate my windows live ID to a different gamertag by following
    these
    instructions.

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

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

      Example:

      Gamertag A is linked to Microsoft account 1.

      Gamertag B is linked to Microsoft account 2.

      To swap gamertags A and B between Microsoft accounts 1 and
      2
      , first create a third temporary account: Microsoft account 3.
    2. Switch the gamertag that is linked to the Microsoft account you want to use to the new temporary account you just created.

      Example:

      Gamertag A remains linked to Microsoft account 1.

      Switch gamertag B to Microsoft account 3.

      Microsoft account 2 is now free.
    3. Now switch your gamertag to the Microsoft account you want to use.

      Example:

      Switch gamertag A to Microsoft account 2.

      Gamertag B remains linked to Microsoft account 3.

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

      Example:

      Gamertag A remains linked to Microsoft account 2.

      After 30 days, switch gamertag B to Microsoft account 1.

      Microsoft account 3 is now free and no longer needed.
