there is 1 way. and its not easy.

Basically... you have to call up 1800-4MY-XBOX and convince them that your gamertag is offensive and thats its offending other people you play with. In ur case, that will be damned near impossible.

its only 800 or so points - get over it. (thats like 10 bucks or something)

P.S. And by points, im assuming u mean MS points. IF ur talking about achievement points - dont worry you wont lose those in the process.

Paying $12.50 (+tax) on your credit card is much easier and cheaper than having the magical touchtone voices in your ear, spending time on the phone, and the phone bill.

Plus when you get off the phone you will have had it against your ear for so long that when you hang up you will have that funny feeling from talking on the phone TOO long.

Anyone else ever get that? Like a tingly numbness...gotta pop your ears a few times, then go have a drink.

In the dashboard click the top box that has your gamercard. When you do that go to edit gamer profile, then gamertag. It costs 800 points. So when you're done you will have enough for 1 theme, and 1 gamer pic. (unless it's quake, then you can get 2 gamerpics)


GamerCard ---> Edit Profile ---> GamerTag

Yeah thats definitley the easiest way. I'm considering doing this soon but I don't think my gamertag is very offensive so I guess I'm gonna have to spend the cash but really, microsoft are ripping us off with points.

this is a hard way to do it but it works. Call them and say that your the parent and say that you dont want your kid to have that name for his Gt for some reason

You can buy a gamertag change for 800 MS Points. Keep the same profile, achievements, etc, but just change the tag.

EDIT: Actually, I'd wish you read....

Next time I'll just delete it seeing as technically, it's spam!!

The reason it's $10 is because they want your online identity to mean something instead of making it no penalty to change it. This keeps people from changing it everytime they piss someone off or just want to hide their shameful ways.
