    So, not sure if this is the best place to post - but it's sort of regarding gamertags so this seemed best. Anyway:

    I want to change the Windows Live ID that is associated with my gamertag per: Windows Live ID Management | Xbox LIVE Account | Xbox Support

    I know that I will have to reset my phone and start over with the new live id; however, does anyone know if the games purchases I've made on my phone are tied to the live id or the gamertag? I'm pretty sure when I do this that all licenses on my Xbox will transfer over to the new live id (since they are associated with the gamertag), but I don't know if the same is true for WP7 or not. Has anyone tried this?

    This doesn't really answer your question but you might want to read it be for you start making changes.


    I hope it helps a little,

    IIRC, the purchases are tied to the XBLGT, not the LiveID. I do not believe the same can be said for Zune purchases, but I'm not sure.

    Thanks guys! I just tweeted to @WinPhoneSupport and got this response:

    "Yes but you will have to do a factory reset on the device and sign into the phone with the new WLID."

    I'll give it try tonight and report back with what I find in case anyone else wants to know.
