    Is there a way to switch the live account (xbox) to something different from my main Ms account? I have a different account on my phone and different account for xbox, and seems like on GAMES the account is connected to the account I used for my phone.

    Thanks.

    Can't you just sign out? You can also retrieve an account.

    You can switch your gamertag to the other account. It's not painless though. Also, you can only change it once every 30 days. Change Microsoft Account | Xbox Microsoft Account | Xbox Windows Live ID - Xbox.com
