    Accidentally changed my gamertag due to a malfunction.


    I was trying to help my cousin Hilary change his Xbox gamertag, because we couldn't find the option to do so in the Xbox app. So I booted up my

    PC and went to xbox.com. I signed out, typed in Hilary's account email and password and pressed enter. BUT THEN, it somehow malfunctioned and

    I was still logged into my own Xbox account. Without realising, I changed my OWN GAMERTAG to HilaryOnion, what Hilary suggested his new

    gamertag should be. I later found out that I changed my own gamertag and almost cried. So now, I have this gamertag and I can't change it back

    without paying.

    I want my old gamertag back, it was TacoMcNoober.

    Is there a way for me to change it back without paying for it, or at least undo the gamertag change?

    :)

    I siggest you read the e3 announcenent if you try and take an existing name you are given a randomized hastag

    However if you dont want this the onky way around it is to try a not already used name

    You cant take whale if it is already taken hence the hashtag

    It can't be reversed however you could always change your gamertag to something else if you are not happy with it. There is a fee to do so though
