GamerTag Help

See when you go to change your gamertag and you find a new one but don't purchase it how come it is locked to you? Is there a certain amount of time it is yours for? Thanks

No you have to purchase to have a new gamer tag what your on about is suggestions

Yeah but when you put in a new one and it's available but you don't buy it my mate then put it in on his Xbox and it says it is already in use even though I never bought it.

google search the gamertag maybe its taken by someone else, the first page should show the profile on


How far did you get into changing gamertag? as far as it giving you suggestions for another tag?
