Changing my gamertag, the consequences?

Hello everyone

I couldn't find the answer I was looking for, so here goes.

I would like to change my gamertag to something else, the changing process is the easy step to do. What I would like to know is how will it affect websites like xbox live rewards, bungie net, xbox.com, EA account and many more that uses your gamertag.

Will they automatically change to my new gamertag, do I have to do it manually or do I need to make a new account?

Thanks for reading

The only thing that changes when you change your gamertag is the name.  Nothing else.  Everything else will remain exactly the same.

Just out of courtesy, you should send a message to those on your friends list informing them of the name change.  Otherwise they may not recognize the new name, and delete you.

So just to clarify, my name will change on every website to the new name while any other details will remain the same?
