I want my gamertag back


I don't have an Xbox anymore, so my windows live ID has expired from non-use.

I want to reclaim my gamertag (dlorey), so I can use it on my PC, but I can't find any way to get this back??

Creating a new WLID just creates a new gamertag, and I can't rename my current gamertag to match the old account, as it's still "in use".

Ideas? (I'm in the UK).

If you have not logged into any sites or used your profile on your Xbox for 6 months, it is possible that your account will become dormant. At that stage, it is not able to be recovered, unfortunately. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
