Changing My Xbox Live Gamertag (Free)

I heard from various amount of people that Xbox Live allows you to change your Gamertag 1 time for free. Now I never changed mine and I have no option to change it for free. Whenever I go to change it and type in my New Name it still says it's going to charge me the 800 Points. If anyone has any information if this is true and if so how to do it then please reply.
-Thank You

Your free change is only given when you want to change from the preassigned name you get when you first sign up. After that no freeby for you.
