    Already used free name change on Xbox while having never changed my name (to my knowledge)


    So i have quite a simple question regarding my Xbox gamertag, this is currently my only gamertag on any online platform that isn't the same as all my others and its bugging me that i can't change it without paying €9,99 because Xbox is saying i have already
    changed my gamertag before. To my knowledge i have actually never changed this name and my current gamertag is the one i used to make my account with.

    My question is if there is a possibility of my account getting a free namechange considering i don't remember having ever changed my gamertag.

    The Xbox account regarding this situation is 'CASH BUYS JOY'

    :)

    Hello Bart,

    Thanks for coming to the forums with your question. When you created an account if you picked a name for yourself instead of sticking with the random generated one. That will count as your free gamer tag change.

    Unfortunately, if you used the name change there is no other way to get a free one.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    Wanting to change gamertag

    [quote user="DJ Squirrely"]I have a one time change for free, since i never used it[/quote]

    No, you have used it. You used the free gamertag name change when you changed your from whatever random name you had to "DJ Squirrely". Even if you didn't change your name, you only had 30 days in which to use that free name change.
    All subsequent name changes are 800MSP.

    Free gamertag change

    Well two things first you already used it

    As you already have a custom gamertag when you originally setup your account

    2nd only new accounts with randomly generated names without the last 3 years get a free name change only oncr

    That doesn't make sense. I didn't use my free name change by naming myself in the first place.

    I figured it had to do with the account being old in the anyway.
    your first change is the creation of the account with a custom name

    Only when you get a random generated name when you first create the account do you get an free name change

    Never got my free name change

    Nope you must use 2'renames

    One to free up the name then the 2nd to get the name back and with the correct capitalization
