moving gamer profile to new xbox console ?

i recently got a new slim xbox and i was wondering how i go about moving my gamer profile to a new console without a transfer cable ? and deleting it off of the old console ? idk if recover gamertag does that or if it just adds it to another system without removing the old one.

Your Gamertag can only be on one console at a time.  You can move your Gamertag and profile onto a flash drive (format it first on your xbox) or memory unit and just transfer it to the new console.  You could also go through the "Recover Gamertag" process on the new console which allows it to be downloaded after you enter in your e-mail and password associated with the account..  Both are relatively quick solutions.  Once its up and going on the new console, you can just delete it off the old one.  Even if you went back to your old console and tried to use the Gamertag/Profile, it would let you know that the profile needs to be recovered since it's on a different console.

Did this solve your problem?
