Sorry I cannot give you the answer, as I have exactly the same problem, tied in with the fact that I want to get rid of the GamerTag Xbox gave me when I first used Xbox. I now have another GamerTag on a different email and its driving me nuts......I just want to use the hotmail email address with the GamerTag I choose!.......?

also if the email u wish to use is already i n use by another gamer tag u will have to either cancel that account or change that ones email first(the second option is probably faster).
