    simple you will have to choose another tag, live is not the only system that uses the tag system windows live PC games and zune do too. also to add the system does not know the difference between caps and non caps or spaces, for example megajord, mega jord,
    and Mega Jord are all the same tag and thus not available, sorry.

    he may have spelled it differently or added a number to it there is no way to choose the same tag if he changed it to another one then it is obvious you cannot choose that particular tag name anymore.

    Are you sure he wasn't searching for a name?

    There is no way to check for a name except to change to the name and then he would take it instantly

    As stated before if the system says it is taken it is taken

    Just be more creative with the spelling

    .FYI is the same as ngoc phi spaces do not differentiate names to reduce confusion

  9. I bought me a xbox one and when i instaled it, i notice that my gamertag isn't the same anymore.

    I asked for help about this and he told my that my gamertag was taged and therfore changed in a realy dumb name. So now i have a silly gamertag and can not change it. Now the fun part. I can change it but then i got to pay $10. So for something i didn't
    do i got to pay extra?? It's the same as i drive a Ferrari and let you pay for it.

    Now after a day thinking of returning the xbox one and ask for a refund i decided to give it a try with the $10.

    At that point i notice that my acount has bin moved to a US server and if i wanted to change my gamertag i have to move my account with lost of the credits that is on it. So Microsoft is charging me first $10 to get a desent gamertag and second to buy
    new credits . Let me tel you if this isn't solved the right way, that silly xbox one is going back to the store!!!!

    first do not bump old threads second you only get a name change like that if your name violated the rules. you only have 2 options keep the name or pay the 10 bucks to change it but. as for the other thing we cannot help you on that on the forum you may
    have to contact support about that.

    Unable to change gamertag

    I'm trying to change my classic gamertag which is the one you see in games. My classic gamertag got changed and my Xbox One and Xbox App gamertag stayed the same (the Xbox One gamertag is the ones they added with the new gamertag system).

    My Xbox One gamertag is different to my in-game gamertag and I want my classic gamertag to be changed. You can only change your classic gamertag on the Xbox One console, I have tried using the other ways and you can only change your Xbox Gamertag, not your
    classic gamertag.

    The reason I want to change my classic gamertag is that the classic gamertag can be fifteen characters and the Xbox One gamertag can only be 12 characters. If I use the other ways to change my gamertag it limits me to 12 characters and sets both my gamertags
    to that.

    The txt quoted is in the section which yes has the Windows LIVE section below, but at the top clearly states Xbox 360 Console:

    "How to change your Xbox LIVE gamertag
