Swap Gamertag from one email address/ID to another

Hi guys,

I've just bought an Xbox 360 and I need a bit of help with my Live account. Basically, I have two email addresses that have their own Gamertag; one Hotmail address and one Gmail address. Is there any way to swap the Gamertag from one email address to the other?

The problem is that my normal email address (Hotmail) is my main Microsoft Account, but for some reason the address is set to US (I'm in the UK). This is attached to my playXray Gamertag. So I used my Gmail address to set up another Microsoft Account, set to the UK. I then set up a Gamertag on this.

I'd really like to use my Hotmail address for my UK Gamertag. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance guys.

Well, I was looking to perform my good deed of the day before I went to sleep, and you are the lucky winner!

But seriously, I found some info that may help you out.  I present to you these links:

for switching gamertags between two accounts;

and this is just to switch your gamertag to a different account.

I hope this helps.

Wow thanks, I'll give it a go. On a side note, what is my Xbox Live subscription tied to? Is it tied to my Live ID or my Gamertag?
