Gamertag Change Question

So I have 2 Xbox live gamertags.  Let's call the Gamertag A and Gamertag B. Gamertag A has the name I want and Gamertag B has all my friends, achievements, etc.  If I am willing to pay 800 points and change gamertag A's name to something different, does that free up that name which I could then change Gamertag B to? If anyone that knows for sure or has done it before I would really really appreciate it. Thanks!

[/quote]In short, yes. You'll have to pay 800 points to free up the name on gamertag A, and another 800 to change Gamertag B to Gamertag A. I've done this before. It may not be instant that the name becomes available again, however.
