Default changing gamertag?

I recently bought a used 360. It has two users on it already...and I hate the names. I'd like to change the username (is that a gamertag)....can that be done?

I haven't gone on XBox live yet...since I don't have a wireless adapter for the 360. Would I have to go online to XBox live to change or delete the other 2 gamertags? Could I add my own since it's a used system?

You could delete the old profiles on the hard drive and create a brand new one for yourself. Then later on you can get on Xbox Live to complete your registration.

Those profiles should have been deleted before you even got the system. I think the limit on the number of profiles/gamertags per system is 6. When you sign up for Live, it will ask you to create a Gamertag. Those names on the system now are just local profiles that arn't on Live yet.

I only changed my gamertag once and it cost me 800 MS points...$10.

As someone earlier said, just delete the old profiles & make your own. You don't need to be online to do it.I'd wait until you sign up for Gold membership, &, most importantly, make sure you really like the gamertag you choose, as it will cost you 800 pts to change it later.
