I apologize if this seems like an odd request, but I want to check something.

If you have ever changed your Gamertag, could you please post the old one that you had? I want to test if gamertags become available to register again when people change them to new ones...

Yeah, someone on my friends list changed his Gamertag three times in one day, and he ended up going back to his old one - What a waste of money!

I just got done talking to a representive from xbox. They said to me yes as soon as you change the gamertag from blah blah to blahblahblah then blah blah becomes available. There is no lag. I found this out because i moved from US to Canada. My Name i want to keep but they tell me i can't change anything else over like my Microsoft Points or my gamerscore. :( 1000 msp and 10255 gamerscore damn @55h0les So i looks like i'm gonna have to keep my US side.. The only downside is that i can't get any movies or shows off market place because i show as belonging to US however my IP address is that of Canada. I'm gonna see if i can fake my IP Address and get past it that way.. Doubtful tho.. Will respond if i can to help others out :)

Yeah one of my friends in real life changed his gamertag to Nike Customer. Is it just be or is that just the worst $10 to spend to change your gamertag to?
