Change Windows Live ID

I'm trying to change the windows live ID associated with my gamertag "gls26", however every time I try I get an error message saying this can only be done once every 30 days. I have had this account for over a year and have never changed it. Yet it still doesn't let me change my Live ID. Can someone help?

gls26 - This 30 days starts from the moment you make an account change. So you'd need to wait those 30 days unfortunately since there is no way around it to change the Windows Live ID on that gamertag.

Thanks, but what exactly counts as an account change? I'm confident I've modified my account in any way.....

Anytime you initiate any sort of payment information change or update any sort of billing information would constitute as an account change.

I thought so. Like I said I've not made any such changes for well over a year. Why is this still happening?

You can contact XBOX Support for a direct answer as to that via phone. Unfortunately like I said they wouldn't be able to change the Windows Live ID manually either, you'd still need to wait 30 days.
