    Yeah, pretty much the same as AppleID or Google Account. As soon as you set it up it's set in stone.

    There is a way to merge them, but it takes a really long time unless you can get to a specific Xbox support team. I had some problems with it back at the end of last year when WP8 came out, took until April to get it fixed (actually, took that long to get to the right team). If you're not tied to the Windows Account you made to use your phone, then just hard reset, if not I can try to dig up the info on the team I got in touch with.

    You can change your AppleID without resetting the phone

    But just merge your Xbox one with the one you want to use go to your Xbox profile and there is a setting to change Microsoft account your gamer Id is tied to

    But this would then change it for purchases as well?

    Apps are tied to Microsoft Account, not gamertag. You can change the Microsoft account your gamertag is tied to.

    Does it effect your gamertag changing it is what I meant

    It won't, anything you bought with your gamertag on your Xbox gets transferred over. I'm not sure how purchases like Spartan Assault work (have a feeling W8 and WP8 games act as apps).
