    Hello,

    This probably sounds stupid, but here goes. Got a Lumia 920 last month, didn't have an Xbox. Set up Xbox live on the phone just to see what it was. Got an actual Xbox today, and it set me up with a different ID. Can I sign out of XBox live on the phone and sign back in with the XBox ID on the Xbox? Frustrating because I can't use smartglass.

    Disregard, its working I just "downloaded profile" for the ID I had on the phone. It wasn't taking my live.com credentials earlier, which caused me to sign in with my outlook.com credentials, creating another ID.

    I'm not sure if you can. I don't believe the windows phone 7 allows you to so you might have to do a hard reset which would suck.

    He did not switch it, hr just downloaded the phone Xbox profile to the console.

    For switching your Xbox profile, you have to change the associated Microsoft account from the console.

    Xbox support page has a nice long FAQ on the subject.
