Sorry if this is in the wrong place.
I was just wondering if there was a way to check to see if an account has already been made with a gamertag I'm trying to use.
I already know that you can attempt to change your gamertag to what you want it to be and a prompt will tell you that it's already in use, or that you can send a friend request to the gamertag and see if it exists or not, but the problem is is that when I friend requested the profile, it comes up totally blank(ie 0 gamerscore, no games played, no friends, info, default gamerpic etc). That makes me think that the profile doesn't exist and that there's a glitch or something. It hasn't been the first time I've come across a profile like that.
So is there any definite way to know if it really exists? And if not, how to bypass this problem? Thanks.
