I need to know how to completely deactivate my XBOX Live account.

I need to know how to completely deactivate an account.  I currently use a GMail account to access XBOX Live, and it's very difficult to access it because it's not my Windows Live ID(i.e. XBOX Smartglass etc).  I have a different XBOX Live account associated with my Windows Live ID, which I do not use.  My question is:  Can I deactivate my account that utilizes my Windows Live ID, and then change the E-Mail account associated with my current XBOX Live account(my GMail one) to my old Windows Live ID?

Hi there, unfortunately there is no way to deactivate a gamertag. Once created it will pretty much stay on the Xbox Live servers until it may get recycled.

If you would like to use you Microsoft account with your main gamertag in replacement of your gmail account you will need to follow the steps at this link to make it so: support.xbox.com/.../switch-gamertag-to-different-microsoft-account
