Transferring my Gamertag to my new hotmail account, even though there is now a Gamertag on my new account???? seriously stressed. lol

I have recently bought a new windows 8 laptop, i had to set up a new account to be able to use windows 8. i would like to transfer my gamertag for my Xbox gold live account to this new email address, unfortunately there is a gamertag associated with my new email address for windows 8, which I do not remember setting up. when i try to transfer the gamertag it says that there is already a gamertag associated with this account. i really need to put my xbox live gamertag onto this new email address as I do not want to use my old email address any more.

Hi NuwixLive,

It might be better to make a separate thread on your issue if you haven't already so some of gamers with a bit more experience on account migration and the fifa pass can chime in.

-

I know Xbox Live will allow account migration now. Check out this thread for more details: forums.xbox.com/.../442533.aspx

-

I'm not sure about the Fifa pass. I think it's only good for the account that redeemed it.

-

Wish I had more. (Btw, your English is fine.)

Hey there.

How long ago did you set up the other account?  You can transfer a gamertag from one email to another, but it can only be done once every 30 days.

-

You'll need a third Email account so you can do the switching.

Detailed steps on how to do the transfer can be found here: support.xbox.com/.../switch-gamertag-to-different-microsoft-account

I hope this helps.

I think Im having the same situation (kind of).  Yesterday i brought Fifa 13 and I wanted to play online with my friends so I redeemed the online pass but then I realized that i can only play if i got the Xbox live Gold membership. So today I brought the Gold membership but when I wanted to activate it, it keeps asking me my billing information. The thing is, I live in Switzerland but in the account registerd as UK. Since we dont have the option to change the country/region, I made a new account but im afraid to activate my Gold membership because I dont know if i can use my fifa 13 online pass on my new account.  Help me please!! Im actually a PS3 user so Im new to Xbox

P.S sorry for my bad English :)
