Gamertag

    Hi! I called the xbox live support team about a question i had a few days go about the gamertag 'Zexy'. The gtag was only used on the original xbox and was never transferred over to the 360 so i asked if i could use it now. They told me they couldnt do that themselves but told me to head on over to the forums and post to have the gtag "recycled" if i wanted to use it for this account. So here i am heh. Anyway i could get some assistance on this? thank you.

Honestly, the only way of knowing when the gamertag will ever be available is if you keep on checking to see it manually. There is no way for us to hand you over the gamertag since it may be used already, still being transferred over, or used on Zune.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

[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. [/quote]http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/f/12/t/19165.aspx#gt
