How can I delete a free silver account as the user name is the name I want to buy for my GOLD Account

Hello can anyone help me I have spent hours messing arround with this. I have had to create another windows live ID just so I could use my own email address as my secondary email address was alreay registed to a silver account. SO i had to create a third email account as a windows live ID then change all the details and trasfer the second account ito the new email account before I could then transfer to my own email address that the silver account was registeered in.

I am still hitting brick walls even thought I have managed now to transfer the email account and windows Live ID this way I still need to get the Gamertag from the silver account to my main gold account that I have had for years as it has loads of gamer score.

I am willing to pay for the gamer tag this is not a problem 800 credits is a small price to pay for the gamer tag idf i could only get it.

There is no option anywhere to close the silver account down online under account settings under profiles or on the xbox am I missing some thing as I need to close the silver free account down so it twill then release the gamertag and my widows live ID and close the acount down so Ican then purchase the gamer TAG for 800 credits that I have already registered as a silver account onto my main gold account.

I must be missing some thing please help me!

Please help I must be missing some thing surely Microsoft are not making it so you can not remove user accounts to make it look like they have a much larger user base than they actualy have users due to lot's of unused and static accounts like my silver accounts that I wish to close.

Why can't it just be like a ipad or Mac add or remove yes or no this is why Mac's are becoming more used than they was a few years back as they have become much more user feeindly and also they don't crash.

The name changes is the only way I know of to do what you want, but that'll cost $10 per name change, so it might not be cost-effective.

not sure if this would work but change silver name to something else, wait a while then try changing it on your gold account to the name you wanted- That probablies wont work but just what i had in mind , personally i would just change it too something different or similiar like change it slighly I.E double ii or 1's etc, then keep your silver one seperate :)

You cannot delete a GT from the servers.  You can delete it from your console, but it still stays in system.  You can call and cancel the Live part, but the GT itself still stays around until such a time MS decides to purge it.

There is no way to completely delete an account from the servers. You would have to change the name of the silver account to free up the gamertag and then change the game on the Gold account.
