I started playing GTA V recently and wanted to redeem my pre-purchase extras so for the first time I connected my Xbox360 to internet. I have played for years on a local profile. The system prompted me to create an Xbox Live profile. I logged in with a profile that I have for my windows phone. I did all the security checks and got the verification codes to the phone and other email. I got my extras redeemed but when I started GTA V again I realised that my local profile wasn't in use. There are now two profiles on my box.
I've searched for info on merging accounts. It apparently isn't possible.
- Can I delete my current Xbox live account somehow and remove its connections to my phone and email?
- Is it then possible to use these same email and phone number and convert my local profile to a live one by selecting "Join Xbox Live" in the dashboard?
