I want to change my main Xbox account's name to this one.

I will try to explain this as clearly as possible. Please ask any questions if you have any.

I have one Xbox account already. During a free weekend, I created this account and played on my favourite game from scratch, because I haven't been able to replicate the enjoyment of playing it for the first few days. But soon the weekend was over, and this account is sat uselessly on my Xbox with a Silver Membership. However while using it, I decided I liked this gamertag better than my old one as the old one contained an number, making it look very ugly (in my opinion).

Is there a way for me to give this name to my other Xbox main account and keep my gamerscore, or perhaps delete this account off the servers and pay for a name change? I am very annoyed as this is a problem of my own making, and if I hadn't created this account I could just pay for the name change or get it free on Christmas Day.

Thanks, please help me!

The only thing you could do here is change the name of that account. You would not be able to exchange names unless you pay for 2 names and swapped them. I hope I was able to assist you in this matter!

Hi, I'm afraid that merging accounts isn't possible. You can't change the gamertag on your main account to this one either as its already taken by you, so I'd say there is nothing you can do regarding this.

What I meant was that if he bought 3 names and changed one to a random name to make the other available then change the main to that one and then the alternate to the mains old name.

Hi there,

I can find the link at the moment as im on my mobile, but if you go to bing and type In 'remove Xbox account completely' follow the steps to delete the account with the gamertag you want. Then pay for a name change on your other account and then change it to the gamertag you deleted.

Hope this helps :-)

oh, i must have miss read the info i found, my bad.

In that case the only option is the one above, change the gamertag to a random one on the silver account, then change the gamertag on the gold account to the one you wanted off the silver account.
