Remove WLID from gamertag

When I try to remove my WLID from my gamer tag, it will transfer out fine but Xbox Live randomly generates a new gamer tag and associates it with the removed WLID. I know it sounds confusing but it seems as though Xbox Live can not leave the WLID blank long enough for me to transfer my current gamer tag to it.

I have multiple xbox's so basically all I want to do is swap WLID's for my 2 gamer tags.

You need a third 'dummy' E-mail for this. A gamertag will always need an E-mail ascosiated with it. So its like a game of musical chairs. With the third E-mail you will, for e.g. bring it to this gamertag and swap it for its WLID then that E-mail will be free to be swapped with your secondary account. The E-mail on your secondary will be free to be swapped for the WLID that you put on the gamertag and the Third 'Dummy' E-mail can be forgotten about.  Hope that helps.

Thank you for your reply. That is what I tried to do, but you need to transfer WLID away from my gamer tag first because it will say that there is a WLID already associated with this gamer tag. When I do this and come back Xbox live has already placed a new gamer tag on the WLID I want to use.

and make sure BOTH gamertags are on your console for AT LEAST 30 days and you can then do the switch...they have to "marinate" and get the information from the console and IP address.
