When I made my account for XBL, I used a email I do not remember the password to (stupid me). I want to change it to something I actually use. Besides calling MS, is there another way to do this? Seems silly to call them for such a thing that only has a 1 month trial (I plan on buying 1 year soon on it though).

How long ago did you create the account if it was less than 30 days ago that is why it's probably saying that , then all you have to do is wait 30 days lol

I made the account like maybe 5-10 days ago? somewhere near there. I still need to activate my email for the account that's why I'm trying to do it lmao.

You still need to put the password for your previous Windows Live ID before changing it, I think.

OT: Just make a new account. Not worth the hassle to be honest, and you said it yourself it's a new account with only the free 30 days so stuff it.

That's what I'm thinking. But I don't want my trial to go to waste so once it's done I'm going to make a whole new account.
