Same email for two accounts?

4 Replies 1,022 Views Created 18-05-2011

Well I have 3 accounts on my ps3. My main account and two sub accounts that I rarely use. I just deleted one of the two accounts from my Ps3 for a reason in which I don't even know why I decided to do that. But now I am trying to get back that account. 

 

But the only problem is that I used the same email for my main account and that account. Is there anything I can do to get this account back?

Please use plain text.

You can not use 2 two exact Email addressess during account use the PSN WILL NOT LET YOU. You can Use an address with a typo. but not the same.

mrjohnsmith@Ymail.com = Account 1 = PS3 says "OK"

mrjohnsmith@Ymail.com = Account 2 = PS3 says - Smeg off this twonk added an address in use already better pop up a message- "This email address can not be used"..

 

Sub account for under 18 are controlled buy a master account that can over ride setting  for the sub account if you use the linked master account.

 

Duplicate Master accounts are for users over 18.

Cant be accessed on the PS3 

You need the correct details.

 

Sony CS Might be able to recover accounts via the phone if you have the correct details set on the duplicate accounts. 

No sony CS staff can do any thing via forums.

Re: Same email for two accounts?

For obvious reasons you can't do this

 

1 : Imagine you forgot your passcode So use the [ Forgot Passcode ] button, now your passcode just got sent to whoever owned that E-mail adress

 

2 : Your E-mail Adress is your Sign in.... So therefore using 3 Accounts at the same time would be counterproductive and confusing when you want to sign in

 

3 : Why on earth do you even have 3 accounts?
