I made a honest mistake in my gamertag.

Hi,

I made a silly little mistake in my gamertag while changing it last night I didnt noticed it until it was  confirmed. I just wanted to know if you can help me I spoke to live support and he said maybe you could help me please. If you can I will be very happy :D the gamertag I wanted was 'Milktruck' but I am told it is invalid but no one uses it if you can help it would be awesome. It was just a general mistake I couldn't help it. There are reasons for that. 

Thanks ~ Brad

Some gamertags have been used in the past and are frozen for a period of time - the xbox team is working on releasing some of the old ones from the original xbox. You might get lucky - they release old gamertags once in a while. Also some gamertags you cant use as they are viewed as offensive.

Is your gamertag currently M capital i and lowercase L? ( MIlk ? )

Were you told it was invalid when you first tried to change your tag to Milk or did they tell you this when you contacted support?

The gamertag is already in use, so you won't be able to use it live.xbox.com/.../Profile

Actually the gamertag "MilkTruck" isn't in use (as the one that Smwutches suggested has a space between the two words), but unfortunately I think you will have to pay other 800MSP to be able to change it again.

The system doesn't recognize things like spaces as making gamertags unique. So "milk truck" is the same as "milktruck".

It actually does and Xbox is the only one that I know that does. On PS3 you will find usernames such as Milk-Truck and same on lot of PC games, but on Xbox you are allowed to use spaces in your Gamertah wich surprised me the first time I saw it ;)

It actually doesn't. Smwutches is correct.

If 'MilkTruck' is taken, you are not going to be able use 'Milk Truck', because the system does not register spaces as a character.

For example:

M I L K T R U C K

M ILKTRUCK

MI LKTRUCK

etc are not able to be taken if ANY form of 'Milk Truck' is taken.

I'm sorry you guys are correct, I misuderstood Smwutches' with "Xbox gamertags don't allow spaces" even tho he said that they are not recognized wich is right :D

Another note, regardless of any of that, you would still need to pay 800 ms pts to fix it.
