Got my 360 when it hit the stores, long before gamertags were linked to LiveID's. I put in an e-mail address back then that is no longer in use. Hasn't been in use for over three years, even the host is no longer there, and though I still know the address
I cannot ever hope to recover the password.
I cannot change the LiveID because you need the password from the old "LiveID". I'm stuck with an old e-mail and only thing left is setting up a new gamertag but the problem is that you thereby essentially dump the old gamertag and thereby all achievements and DLC. Though I could still deal with losing the achievements(after months of therapy) losing all my DLC which I've spend quite a great deal of cash on is unacceptable and I'd simply want my gamertag set up with a working e-mail address.
My gamertag works for now but I can only imagine the trouble if I'd ever decide to move to a new console, be part of social groups or want anything else changed. I had to create a LiveID just to post here...
I already called support and the problem is that they cannot change anything associated with my gamertag so change of e-mail, even though I can verify that I am the owner, isn't possible. Very frustrating!
That's why I'm posting it on here; just getting the word out. I hear many stories of people having old email accounts attached to their gamertag who are stuck also. Is there absolutely no way to do anything about this? Is this already being looked into?
