Making a username available?

I wanted to change my username to iMLG, but it was unavailable. I looked up the gamertag on xboxgamertag.com, which I have found to accurately display gamertags, their achievements, etc. I found out it is offline, and it has seen no use online on any game. I figured this account was created to exploit free Xbox Live, and I would really like the gamertag; is there a possiblility the username can be made available? (I acknowledge I still have to pay to change to it.)

No. There is no way to request a gamertag. The gamertag system is in use on other Microsoft services as well so even if it isn't in use on the 360, it could still be in use elsewhere.

[quote]I heard old GTs are being re-added. When will "This GT" be available?

There is no schedule or estimated dates for when certain GTs will become available again. GTs are not an on-demand service. They will be available when they are available. [/quote]

Thank you for the responses. It was inevitable; my hope was that gamertags that had been inactive for too long were made available again, maybe in the near future.
