So you created an account on, then recovered it to the console, and now you are trying to change the WLID, correct? If you are seeing that message, then it means the WLID you are trying to change to is already being used by another account. If you have another account currently using this WLID, you must change that one first, freeing it up to use on your main account.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
