I don't know if you can do that. Because your gamertag is in the Xbox Servers. The only way it can be deleted if the account hasn't been used for quite sometime.

Xbox are the only people who can delete a tag for re-use.  Recently, they did this with quite a few tags but I don't think that is happening on a continuing basis.

You can't delete a gamertag/profile. If you pay 800 Points to change the gamertag, the old one will be available for a new profile. You can change the Live ID to another email address (that's free), making the old one available for a new profile.

Hello Demon, if you contact Xbox Support they can delete the gamertag, but it takes a week or longer to become open again, Good luck!

@Major Iris: They only delete the account if the account hasn't been used and its just sitting there not being active.

@prince Leo

They didn't delete that many accounts before they stopped because everyone started hoarding all the tags to sell them.  My best guess is that they wont make that mistake again and will just let old tags die like the should.
