Recovering Old Xbox Live Accounts

Hello! My xbox live name is RadShad and I was looking to change my name to just Shad. The sad thing is the name is already taken! I looked up the gamertag Shad and saw it hasn't logged in for some years and the last login was on the original Xbox. Is it possible to recover the account or do I have to get the owner's consent, who ever he may be? Is there any other options? Thank you :)

There are no requests for GTs. If it isn't available, it isn't available. Sorry for the frustration.

You just have to wait and see if the gamertag you want is one of the lucky ones:
