So I have two gamertags we'll just call them tag A and tag B I basically wanted to do this.
Change tag B to tag C (Random temp tag)
Change tag A to what tag B was (its a tag that I like better and actually matches with forum names etc everywhere else)
Change tag C to what tag A used to be.
Sorry if that's confusing, basically I'm just trying to swap and use my second tag as my main one from now on. So I changed tag B and within a minute I logged to tag A to try and switch it, but even though tag B was changed it is still saying it's in use.
The weird thing is, if I try and change it to something I KNOW is in use I get the error "This gamertag is already in use" but when I try and change it to what I want it to be I get "The gamertag "____" is already in use. Two different errors.
So in short, is there like a cooldown after changing a gamertag before it frees up? Or am I maybe still logged into a Live service that I forgot about? Mind you the second tag was created a couple months ago so the name I want is kinda random and I doubt it would get taken within the 30 seconds it took me to try and change to it.
Also, when I try to add the tag as a friend it says it doesn't exist on LIVE.
