    I have 2 gamer tags on my xbox, the 2nd I created because I had my xbox for a while before going live and my 1st tag had already been chosen by someone else.

    Now is it possible to change my 1st tag to my 2nd i.e chnge name and login details??

    Thanks in advance
    Tom

    As in merge them together? No, I'm pretty sure there's no way to do that.

    I tried last night creating an account with my offline tag all be it slightly modified as existing name was laready used but wouldn't allow it as email addy is already used with my Live name.

    Tried again using my work email but wouldn't allow that for some reason saying it was invalid???

    Thanks for the response anyway.

    Regards
    Tom

    The only way to do this would be to delete your second account, and then rename your first one. But I'm not sure if you can delete accounts completely from Live or not.

    I'm pretty sure you can't permanently delete the gamer tag from live but will it allow me to reuse my email address as currently not.

    Think I will try and change the email address on my live account and see if will then reuse my email address on new one and if so then delete old one.
