GAMERTAG ISSUES

Hey, my name is Ryan Anderson and at the moment my gamertag is : AnderzoN AK , i wanted to change it to AndersoN. So i went ahead and added AndersoN to see if it was taken, and it said it wasnt a valid gamertag, so i carried on, went to change gamertag, entered AndersoN , and it said that this gamertag is already in use??? lol, any help?!

Putting your real name in your gamertag is very dangerous.

Failure to "add" tells you little. You can always try editing a Profile link with all the different spacing variants... Meet A N D E R S O N.

Spaces and Capitalization don't matter in GamerTags. The system counts them as all being the same.

So for exampled ANDERSON, anderson, A N D E R S O N and any other changes with just Capitalization and or spaces are all the same.

There's a sticky post in this forum that explains that spacing and capitalization don't matter.

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.
