    Using a Gamertag being used on 2nd account


    I have 2 Xbox accounts. 1 I used in the U.S. when I lived there and now the one I use in the UK.

    What I want to do is use the name I use on my US account on my UK gamertag. My US is Wir3tap and UK is Wir3tap81. Can I rename my US to something different then rename the UK to Wir3tap? How do I go about this?

    :)

  2. Xbox Live account not connecting to my Microsoft account.

    if you Login with a different gamertag, this can only be caused by using a different email.

    if your correct gamertag is using automatic Login on your xbox, you check your email

    -> navigate to Settings -> select account - > 2steps right -> open account security -> current Microsoft account =? it can not be the same as you are using on your 2nd new gamertag

    do digital codes work worldwide?

    If you have problems redeeming it on a UK account just set up a US gamertag redeem it on there and play on UK account.

    IIRC Xbox one games were touted as being region free so you should be good to go either way :thumbsup:

    Using a Gamertag being used on 2nd account

    You would have to change your US gamertag to something different to free it up for use and then change your UK tag. You will have to pay for each change. How to Change Your Xbox Gamertag

    is there a time delay to do it or can I expect to do it instantly?

    Hi there,

    if it's about the Gamertag (so not the account) then the only option there is, then that will require you to do two gamertag changes.

    1. Change the gamertag on the 2nd account, so it will become available to be used.

    2. Change the gamertag on the 1st account to the gamertag that should now be available, since it isn't used by the 2nd account.

    Please be aware that there are risks and limitations.

    For example, if these are older style gamertags then it might not even work at all, if somebody else decides to want that gamertag while you are in the process of changing it and grabs it before you. And there might be other things resulting in not being able to get it switched around.

    I myself wouldn't risk it.

    Can I Swap Gamertag between accounts ?

    Alright, this is sad.

    I was wondering, If I delete the 2nd account and change the gamertag of the 1st account, Will the gamertag of the 2nd account will be available ?

    As I deleted the account, it can be used again right ? Or this doesn't work like that ?

    Thanks anyway :)

    Account not being used with gamertag that I want

    It may never be released. As long as that gamertag is linked to an active Microsoft account, it will remain with that account.

    There is a new gamertag system rolling out, where you can pick any gamertag (up to 12 characters and within the code of conduct) and a numbered suffix will be added.
