Swap Windows Live ID's -

OK so when my husband first got live we figured he would be the only one - and since I handle account stuff we signed him up using my live account - but we have upgraded to family and I find myself using live more and more - only I used his Windows live ID to sign up because he had mine!

Is there anyway to swap them back so that he has his and I have mine?

It's kind of confusing to explain, but yes you can. You would have to first change one of the accounts to a different ID in order to free up the one you want to use. Say, your husband's account is Account A with ID A, and yours is Account B with ID B. If you change ID A to something different it frees up ID A to be used on another account. So you would then change ID B to ID A and then change ID A to ID B.

However, you can only change the WLID every 30 days, so one of the accounts would have to be on a different email for about a month.
