Gamertag Problems?

So I wanted to change my gamertag to God Of Fear right? So I typed it in and everything, but it said somebody already had that name, so I was like "oh, ok. I'll just come up with a different name." So I thought of God Of Anarchy. But it said someone had already taken that one too. But just to make sure, I exited the change gamertag screen, and pulled up my xbox guide, I went to friends, and pressed "Add new friend" and I typed in "God Of Anarchy" but it said that gamertag didn't exist on xbox live! So will you please fix this? I really want that name. Thanks.

That gamertag may have been taken in another service such as Zune.

Gamertags can't differ only by spaces, but friend requests don't check for spacing so they don't tell you much. If the system tells you a gamertag is taken, it is taken.

[quote]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.

I heard old GTs are being re-added. When will "This GT" be available?
There is no schedule or estimated dates for when certain GTs will become available again. GTs are not an on-demand service. They will be available when they are available.
