Xbox Gamertag Swap?

Two Questions:

Scenario 1. I and a friend want each others' gamertags. Please explain the rules / risks surrounding this.

Scenario 2. I know someone with a banned gamertag. Can his Gamertag still be changed, so that he can keep the name on his new account? His membership is Silver, and before he wastes a 2-day on it, we'd like to know.

Please offer your product knowledge.

I believe swapping gamertags is not a good idea at all...You could be at risk of a console ban for using someone's gamertag.

Thx. I believe my question may not be clear enough. We want to swap Gamertag Handles (Names). Not actual Microsoft Accounts.

Hi,

Swapping gamertags ( accounts ) is against the terms of use, not only that, it leaves the people involved open to fraud and all sorts of possible issues. As for your friend with the banned gamertag he can't create a new account with the banned gamertag, the gamertag is banned end of story.

He wants to create a new account with the same name? I don't think it would work, as the name would show as already in use. He can only create a similar one.
