[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.
Will All Gamertags eventually be Freed up? I wanted the Gamertag #Zoey# as its my name :) but its dead I think.. (Someone look at it and vertify this for me) I dunno how long it been like this. It has no score but has couple friends, all are dead but two.
I texted one asking if he knew if the person still plays or how long it been dead. But the person not been on yet to reply. Hopefully they will.
