I'm not creating a new gamertag and I'm not changing my hotmail address either.
There is no excuse, don't fob me off with technicalities just fix it.
My Windows Phone is crippled, my xbox live account is crippled and the more things that get released through this process the more crippled I am.
I have a separate account for Zune (it's not the same as my xbox id) and nobody even bothered to cater for this scenario. So i can't access the marketplace on my xbox because I happen to have a different account for zune. And that is only the case because I needed to use a different Live ID to be able to use Zune when I moved to the US because Zune wasn't available in the UK (which my hotmail live ID is registered to).
This is amateur amateur stuff. The lack of cohesion across a service which is designed to offer that very thing is an embarassment.
