If a gamertag got banned, can I make a new live account with the same Gamertag?

Say i wanted to change my gamertag to something that was already in use, and this acccount got banned from xbox live. Would I then be able to change my gamertag to this or would it still be in use?

Nope, if the GT is banned than the GT will always be banned.  Don't fret though, they did put some original xbox names out ealier this year, so about 8 odd years from now your name might be available again.

No you can't. You also lose everything associated with that gamertag. (Gold time, MS points, DLCs)
