Using Windows Xbox Live account to XBox 360 Profile

I have a Windows XBox Live account that I'm able to log into from my laptop and WP7.  I'm now trying to use it with my XBox 360 profile which has never had a Live Account.  The only option I have is to create a new Live account.  Why can't I just use the one I already have for my phone?  Isn't that the point of the seemless integration?  Why I try to login using my existing account I get an error that "The email address you enter can't be used to create a Windows Live ID.  Please use an address from a different domain."  Huh?
