  1. Want to create and transfer a local Xbox account to a Xbox live account


    My child has been playing xbox360 for years with a local account (non-xbox live). Want to create and transfer a local Xbox account to a Xbox live account. I first created a Microsoft (child) account on the web. Then on the console, I signed-in as him and
    tried to create a Xbox live profile. The console stated I needed to create the Xbox live account on the Xbox.com. (I think this has something to do with the parental control. I have two step authentication). I was successful in creating the gametag
    (profile) for my child's account. So now my child has a Microsoft account with a Xbox live profile (all created on Xbox.com). Then I went back to the console, I signed-in as him (still a local account) and tried to add Xbox live to my child's local account.
    It gives you two choices. Create an account or sign-in. When I "create an account" and put in my child's Xbox Live account info, the console stated that the profile is already taken. I was hoping that the console would just add or transfer his local account
    into the Xbox live account. However it would not. When I tried the other option (just Signing-in), it would not allow me to choose my child's (local account) since it was not a Xbox live account. I would hate to not be able to add a Xbox Live account to my
    child's current local account and loose all of the progress he has made over the years.

    :)

    Same Gamertag and Points For Xbox Live when New Xbox Is Released?

    I have been thinking about this, with the new Xbox, will everything be transferred or create a new Xbox Live account?

    I just hope creating a new Xbox Live will not happen because its absolutely absurd but we may just never know, this is Microsoft. Or am I just getting paranoid?

    Want to create and transfer a local Xbox account to a Xbox live account

    It's not possible to merge accounts or transfer anything between accounts. In order for him to use Live, he will have to use the new account.

  5. Just create a new email address, free at outlook.com, don't turn this into gamertag by coming here. Put in proper age when creating account.

    Go to your console and signin to local profile. Press middle button and pick join xbox live. Follow instructions and put in new email and password when asked. You now have new child profile.

    My Mum created my profile like that.

    Mix a local account and an Xbox Live account

    Hey Lika,

    Ngocphi is right here. It sounds like you created a new account instead of joining Live with your local profile. If you want your local profile to join Xbox Live you will need to do this from the console.
