Hello I wanted to change my GamerTag to a different name and I told some of my friends the GamerTag name I was going to change it to.

Then one of then goes and makes a silver account with the GamerTag name I wanted so is there anyway I can get the name I wanted? 

Please Help.

No - Your friend will have to re-edit the gamertag otherwise you cannot take that gamertag.

Microsoft will also not  clear the account since there may be no harm to the account.

Ask your friend if he will give you the account or change the gamertag name.

Otherwise, the gamertag is his and you will need to find a new one.

Hope this help,

Brad.

It sounds like you don't actually know that one of your friends did it; how do you know it didn't exist previously? (I don't think there's any harm in telling us the name, if it's already taken.)
