I have the same question. I wanted to change my tag to 'Darko'. Which I have called customer support about and they told me that nothing could be done. The account has been inactive for many years since then and is not currently a gold member. Is there at any length of time until a gamertag is no longer reserved?

Gamertags are also used  on other Microsoft services, so even if they're not being used on Xbox they could be in use somewhere else. All you can do is wait for the user to change their name so it is freed up for use. There's no way to have Microsoft reset them.

Pretty much. Unless the user decides to change it to something else or Microsoft decides to delete them for use. They  released a bunch of original Xbox gamertags for use months ago, but they usually don't release gamertags.
