[quote]I can't change my Gamertag (GT).
Just because you can't friend request a GT doesn't mean it is available. First of all, all GT are tied to services like Zune or Games for Windows LIVE. If a GT doesn't exist on Xbox, it might be in use on one of those services. Also, spaces and capitalization are not considered when looking for available GTs. For example, "Major Nelson" is the same as "MajorNelson" is the same as "MaJoR nElSoN". Basically if the service says the GT isn't available, it isn't available.

I heard old GTs are being re-added. When will "This GT" be available?
There is no schedule or estimated dates for when certain GTs will become available again. GTs are not an on-demand service. They will be available when they are available. [/quote]http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/f/12/t/19165.aspx#gt

Also, vXCRIMINALXv is in fact taken. http://live.xbox.com/en-AU/MyXbox/Profile?Gamertag=vXcriminalXv

First of all, being rude and using coarse language won't just get you no help, but I'll probably just delete your threads. Also, you are ridiculously hard to understand. Can you please try to convey your issue to us in full words/sentences so we can better understand you.

My assumption here is that you and your friends are having issues using "vX" and "Xv" in your gamertags, is this correct? Exactly what GTs are they trying to use? It's possible there is something else in the tags that is preventing it from going through as well. Thank you.
