Gamertag issue

Would there be any chance of recycling the gamertag "Yellow"? ive tried changing my name to it and it says its taken but when i add the gamertag as a friend on xbox live it says its unavailable.

If it says the tag is taken than it cannot be used. Remember that spacing and capitalization of the letters matter in gamertags so Yellow and YeL lOw would be the same. Als a number of original xbox gamertags were removed due to peole trying to sell them so that's another possiblility/

Awhile back a bunch of dormant gamertags were made available to choose, but a majority of them have been taken.

Note that Zune uses the same account system as XBL. If you find a tag you like and it is taken, it's possible it is being used by a Zune account.
