    Changing my gamertag question


    Hello,

    I’m considering changing my gamertag. Currently my gamertag is . I understand the process required to change my tag to a new one. My question is, if I decide that I don’t like my new gamertag can I return to my previously used tag? My concern is
    that gamertags might be like security passwords that don’t allow a person to use the same password twice or if a person can use a password twice they might need to have 10 new password before they can return to the original password.

    What are the Microsoft/XBOX policies regarding returning to a previously used tag?



    Thank you for your help answering my question.

    OCTUS

    :)

    As long as no one takes your old tag then you should be able to switch back.

    You will have to pay for both changes though.

    Xbox changed my gamertag for unknown reasons. "ZforZakariah" is the name in question.

    A question about changing my gamertag

    Sheepish - It is always best to start your own thread.

    There are no more Free Gamertag changes. I assume yours broke the creation rules. If so - you now get a random Gamertag. Most people who were given forced gamertag changes changed them to another name that violated the naming rules. It will cost you 10
    dollars to change it.

    Enforcement does not read this forum and support is in complete error telling you to post here.
