Similar situation, kinda frustrated!!

So I'm in a similar situation myself, and Ive tried everything I can think of short of calling support. Basically my dilemma is this: I created my xbox live account(CURIOUSAPOLLO) with a HOTMAI.COM account, forgetting the 'L' like an idiot, and everything worked fine. All i wanted to do, was change the email address linked to my account, so I created a HOTMAIL account and even though I got confirmation that its changed, I cannot access my account on Smart glass, Xbox.com or anywhere. If I try to sign in with the hotmai.com, it tells me the address is invalid(duh) and if I try my hotmail, it says I don't have Xbox live. WTF gives? Even after i post this it will probably show the username/Gamer tag that i was given AFTER changing my email address(ROMANTICELK1) which is NOT what I want. Now maybe I'm doing something totally wrong, but on MY xbox, it shows my new address and my gamer tag in the upper left corner and I can access Netflix, Live, and everything like before, but when I try to sign in into my account on my roommates xbox(he's got the bigger TV), it gives me the 'wrong password or this account doesn't have live jargon. All i want to do is have universal access to my account on both systems, and Im totally confused. Is this a merger issue? Do I have to delete my Live account from his Xbox and re-download my profile? WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!?!

Hey there Apollo,

Sorry to hear you're having issues with your account e-mail.

It sounds like you might have created a new account with your hotmail e-mail rather than changing your e-mail on the original account.

You can find a few solutions in our guide on how to Change your Xbox LIVE account information or How to switch a gamertag to another Microsoft account.


Let us know how that goes and we'll work from there.
