1-Please do not use profanity within the forums.

   a) it is not necessary

   b) it is against the Xbox.com Terms of Use

 

2-There are other services that use the same GT system as XBL; Zune and Game for Windows Live. So if it is not being used on XBL, then it is possible it is being used on one of those. You'll have to choose another GT.

There are various reasons why a gamertag is unavailable.  Your only option is to chose something else.

"Adding the gamertag" tells you very little, because it doesn't account for spaces in the gamertag. If you try to change to a tag and the system says it is taken, it is taken.

 

What do I mean by spaces? You are "A N T E X v", so I can't have "ANTEXv". An attempted change will tell me that the second one is taken, even though I can't send a friend request to it.
