#1 Will I lose all my friends, or will they lose me?

#2 You know when you go to the Friends menu and each friend has a background, like a rockstar, xbox console, mobile suit, what dicatates what background the friend has?


#2

#1 - No

#2 - If I understand you correctly you can edit that in your profile settings on either the web at http://www.xbox.com or on your Xbox.


#3

I changed mine a while back. All my friends were still good, and my console settings were all the same.


#4

Yeah no changes, I’ve changed mine 2 times, just need to make sure to send spam out to everyone who is on your list letting them know so they don’t delete you.


#5

would be nice if they didn’t charge as much as they do, but it’s still good to have the option.


#6

Ya, but the $10 free ensures everyone doesn’t go around changing their gamertag every 2 weeks. It obviously doesn’t cost Microsoft a single cent for the computer to change their gamertag, so the $10 is a nice deterrant.

As far as I know regarding the backgrounds for your friends, you can’t change that stuff. It’s applied randomly based on what theme you have running.

#1, NO
#2 Thats just your premium theme…If you press the guide button, go over to profile you can change it.
