Gamertag already exist issue.

I want to change my gamertag, and I tried sending a friends request to that account name, to make sure no one else has it. So I bought microsoft points to change my gamertag, and when I go to change it, says gamertag already exist. Well clearly it doesn't exist. Can anyone help?

If the system says it's in use, then it is in use somewhere on Microsoft's servers. Tags are also used for other Microsoft services so they might not show up as a gamertag.

If you want the name "Gamer Tag" (with a space), and someone else had the name "Gamertag" (without a space), the name you are after will not be available, due to the similarities in the names.
