My biggest problem is that I accidentally put in the wrong email address. (homeofgrace is my mom's email.) My Dad's email address is [email protected] I accidentally put in [email protected] and that doesn't have a password. And we tried to make a new password but everytime we try, it requests that we put the existing password in. PLEASE HELP, I AM SO UPSET!

can you retype that message, and just tell me the websites of the accounts, like

hotmai, gmail, aol, etc

rocketmail
Expert:  Dustin replied 5 years ago.
ok, so the mistyped account was a rocketmail account

one you dont have the password too..

was it a real rocket mail account?

or one that you acccidentaly typed that doesnt actually exist..?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
it is one "that I accidently typed that doesn't exist"
Expert:  Dustin replied 5 years ago.
gotcha..

heres what we do.

go to yahoo.com, which makes rocketmail

create anew account

create the exact same rocketmail account , that xbox live wants, but doesnt exist

since it doesnt exist, we can create it!

then.. you can use that account to claim your points, and membership.. make sense?


Customer: replied 5 years ago.

It doesn't want the account, it wants the password only so that we can change the ID.
Expert:  Dustin replied 5 years ago.
Apologies for the delay.. I just seen your message.

You cant hav a password, without an account..

So.. you need to create the account, that way you will then have an actual password you can use.. To get in, an chage the ID.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I cannot create an email adress because I misspelled it as in [email protected] there is no way to create an account that cannot exist. What do I do now?
Expert:  Dustin replied 5 years ago.
There is a way to create an account that doesnt exist.

Go to yahoo

Make a new account

make the name exactly the same as the account that "" doesnt exist""

now.. It does exist, because your created it!!!
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
please tell me exactly how to creat an account named "[email protected]" I can't make it happen on my own.
Expert:  Dustin replied 5 years ago.
ok, thats supposed to be a rocketmail account right?

i cant see what the name is supposed to be.. this is what i see

please tell me exactly how to creat an account named "[email protected]" I can't make it happen on my own.

can you write out what its supposed to be like

emailname at email.com

but type it in exactly as it needs to be.. just use the word at instead of the @ sign

thanks!

im going to try and actualy create that account, and make it a real account

slow at rocetmale.com
Expert:  Dustin replied 5 years ago.
Yikes..

i cant make a rocetmale account
if it was rocketmail.com

i could make that..

ultimately, it looks like your just going to have to make another account to claim your membership and points

I dont have any further ideas, so im going to opt out , in hopes that another expert might have an idea im un-aware of

How do I transfer all my saved games, awards and acheivements from one account to another?

Expert:  Dustin replied 5 years ago.
The account you want to transfer from...

is it a working xbox live account, one that you can still access?
