Free Gamertag Change?

It says if this is the gamertag you used to sign up to XBOX live with you get a free gamertag change. Yet when I go to change it, it asks me to charge 800 MS points to change it. Why would this be?

The free gamertag change is only if the system assigned you a random gamertag when you signed up. It expires after the first 30 days though.

Hey Stallworth! When you say "compromised" what exactly do you mean? There is no rule against having similar GTs as someone else. If that was the case, we'd have a lot fewer users! Let me know, thanks!

Hey guys!  This thread is pretty old at this point.  All GT changes cost 800 MSP.  You can totally hit up the feedback/wishlist Forums if you have suggestions about it though! forums.xbox.com/.../133.aspx
