View Thread: Switching Live ID on windows 8 phone

    Does anyone know of a way to take one windows id and move its settings to another windows id.

    I have a old windows id and want to use a new one with a new email.   I want the old stuff(sky drive, contacts, etc) to move over.   

    I do not see a way to change the email address on the live id since that is how you are identified.

    For example:  Using JoeBlow@hotmail.com but now want to have JosephBlow@live.com as the new email/live id.     I want to close out JoeBlow@hotmail.com and have its data moved to JosephBlow@live.com.    On the windows phone I understand I would factory reset it and then use the new id.   I don't want to lose data and I see no easy way to do this.
