How can I change my PSN Email?

27 Replies 87,360 Views Created 21-05-2010

Hey there guys,

 

I recently made a new Email, and I want to make it the Email I use to sign into PSN. However, I want to keep the account I already have and I am not exactly sure how I can change it.

 

Is it possible, and if it is can somebody give me a Step-by-step thing to show me how to do it without harming my PSN account details?

Sign into your PSN account, select account management in the XMB

 

Under your account information the option will be listed as email (psn id)

 

You will then need to enter your password as confirmation before changing your email address

 

Hope this helps

Hi there,

 

Probably best to call us to discuss this, as we cannot discuss account details over the forums.

That really helped! BUT in my case, i need a bit more help. I want to change my e-mail to sign into my user but i can't change do it, because the old emails password is invalid and i need to change it, but i can't! because the old email wasnt a real e-mail, so what do i do? basicly my problem is: I can't change my email without logging in with the old email. BUT the old email's password can only be changed by logging into the old email address. Which doesn't exist... Its very tricky :-/   and im so lost.  I need to know how to change the login email WITHOUT logging in :-/ please reply!  -

hi,

 

            I have a complicated problem. On my account I accidentally put .net for my sign in Id (email) instead of . com & i forgot my password. i am currenty just signing in automatically with my password pre-typed. Is there any way to change either my password or email without a valid email for a message to be sent. I am trying to confirm my account with Call of Duty MW3 Elite. I can't just delete my account or make a new one because i have over 20 100% trophy games and am very high lvl in Cod with a bunch of stuff and downloads. please try to think of a solution. 

 

 

                                                                                                   Thank you plz help

Your best bet (and pretty much your only option as I see it) is to call Sony support and ask them nicely for help. You can find the phone number in the back cover of any of your game manuals, or in the manual that came with your PS3. There is no way for anybody to fix this through the forum, as they will need to confirm your identity.

If you have forgotten your password and the email address you used to sign up is invalid or you no longer have access to it, you will need to call our Support Centre for further assistance.

 

We will need to verify your account information before we can assist with this issue.

No, you'll need to confirm the details of your PSN account in order to link it to your CoD account.
