There is a gamertag...

I really would like to use the gamertag "Nervo" but it is already in use, although the account has not been online for ages since it has the standart xbox logo and no bio,motto and other stuff. Is it possible to reset the gamertag so i can use it for my account? Many thanks, Clxn

No it is not possible. At some point they might reset old gametags. However there is not official date for that to happen.

How about some slight variation of the name? Nerv0, n e r v o... I think it takes two years for an account that has no use to go back into circulation. I can't remember where i heard that...

That's because the two of them are read the same.

[quote]I can't change my Gamertag (GT).
Just because you can't friend request a GT doesn't mean it is available. First of all, all GT are tied to services like Zune or Games for Windows LIVE. If a GT doesn't exist on Xbox, it might be in use on one of those services. Also, spaces and capitalization are not considered when looking for available GTs. For example, "Major Nelson" is the same as "MajorNelson" is the same as "MaJoR nElSoN". Basically if the service says the GT isn't available, it isn't available.

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.
