Gamertag Problem

I have a Gamertag I'd like to switch, the problem is, I can't. Long story short, it's my uncles email on the account, and for reasons I won't delve into I no longer have contact with him. My XBox had been broken for quite awhile till I bought a new one. Luckily, I had my profile on a usb (it would have been impossible to recover it because I don't know the info), so I just plugged my usb in and logged However, when trying to add a 3 month I bought, I was requested to enter in more information (password) which I don't know. This also happens for other retail codes. I was pissed, because the tag was an alias of mine for a few years now, and it's a pretty great tag. However, I could add non-retail codes (48 Hours, 160 MSP, 100 MSP, etc.) so I put on 4 160 codes and 2 100 codes thinking I would be able to change my tag, but nope. I need to enter in more information. I tried calling XBox a few times, the reponses are usually "I'm sorry, but we can't help you. May I suggest you start a new account". The problem is that I can't provide them with the info on the email to prove I have it.  I wish I could talk to someone, and prove I have it by messaging them on the account with whatever they want me to to prove it. Any ideas on getting help/bypassing the "need more info" page?

Xbox can not help you gain access to that account. The only way will be to contact your uncle and have him give you the information. Sorry.
