  1. Gamertag didn't change.


    A few hours ago I changed my gamertag. I have had a free change and have been checking different ones for a while now. I finally got one today that I wanted that was available and it said it changed successfully. I no longer have a free change, it says the
    gamertag is taken and my gamertag is still the same. What gives?

    :)

    My gamertag was forcibly changed and now I have to pay for a new one.

    If your gamertag is forcibly changed you should get a free gamertag change. I didn't waste $10 to have my gamertag removed.

    Gamertag didn't change.

    It can sometimes take up to 24 hours for the change to take effect.It will probably be longer at the moment due to the amount of people changing their gamertags.

    Should point out if this is the account in question you don't get a free change

    It's only for system generated names

    Yours isn't as it's mixed caps nor does it have an emotion and fluffy animal and number behind it

    If this is the current name you picked for your free change then you just redownload it

    Otherwise you don't get a free change and the past conventions don't apply to your name as yours is clearly a name you picked

    As per the terms.and conditions it only applied to system generated names for free changes

  6. Then why has the account options told me I've had a free one and why did it allow me to change it even confirming the change?

    If you read the correct artivle.it is only for new accounts or with system generated names

    You aren't system generated you will have to pay

    Gamertag didn't change.

    You can easily change your Xbox gamertag. If your gamertag was created for you when you initially signed up for Xbox (meaning you did not choose it yourself), you can change it one time for free. Additional Xbox gamertag changes cost extra.

    That is the official article nothing else counts
