I just recently bought a 360 elite and made a gamertag with a name that i just found out is already taken on xbox live. so to get on xbox live i need to create a new gamertag under i different name. i had my 360 for a week without connecting to live because my router was too far away to connect and my laptop was being repaired so i didnt have wireless. i have a bunch of achievements on my gamertag that doesnt have xbox live that i want to put on my gamertag that has xbox live. is this possible?

the answer is no... once you find a gamertag that hasn't been taken on live, you will start with a fresh new account... 0 gamerscore...

does it give you the option to change your profile name when it says that the name already exists on xbox live? or does it just simply say you can't take it online? this hasn't happened to me so i can't tell you exactly what to do, but if you create a new profile, it will definately lose your achievements/gamesaves/etc.

You can change the gamertag (just the name) to something else for 800 points.

does this mean that he can search on live for a gamertag that isn't taken, then change his tag to that name for 800 points, then create a live account with the new tag and still have all his achievements?

how would that work where his current profile isn't live enabled? wouldn't that stop him from linking any points to his account? i think the 800 point name change only works on silver/gold live accounts and not offline profiles.
