I want to change the email address associated with my Live account/gamertag.
It is currently an 11 year old hotmail email address I created when i was 15. As you can probably tell it is quite a childish address and because of this i don't use it anymore for anything other than signing into Games for Windows Live (i no longer own
an xbox 360).
This is fine for the moment but I am thinking of buying a windows phone and would just like to change the email address to a more sensible one so I only have to manage one account for Live and use a sensible email address when contacting people.
The problem is, when i go to the account settings and click the 'change' button next to my email address I am presented with the error:
"Your Windows Live ID can't be changed
Your Windows Live ID can't be changed at this time"
I read somewhere that Live accounts with hotmail addresses cannot be changed but that seems utterly ridiculous to me.
I just want to change the email address associated with my gamertag, preserving my gamerscore and games for windows live licenses associated with that account.
Thank you for your help.
