Find the Windows Live ID I used to create my gamertag

Your Windows Live ID is the email address and password you used to create your gamertag. When you sign in to your phone using that ID, you get your gamerscore, avatar, and all your achievements on your phone. When you play games on the phone, you'll earn more achievements, and your gamerscore will grow.

  1. On your Xbox 360 console, sign in using your Xbox LIVE gamertag.

  2. Go to Settings, and then select Account.

  3. On the Account Management screen, go to Your Information, and then select Windows Live ID, where you can see the Windows Live ID associated with your gamertag.


  • After you finish signing in with your Windows Live ID on your phone, you may need to activate your Xbox LIVE account. On Start, tap Games. If you see a link that says I already have an Xbox LIVE account, tap it, and then follow the instructions.
  • If you have more than one Windows Live ID, we recommend that you sign in with your Xbox LIVE ID first. See Which Windows Live ID should I use? to learn more about choosing the best Windows Live ID for your needs.
