When will Original (Dead) Gamertags be reset?

I have been waiting ages to get my old gamertag back that has not been online in 4 years. The gamertag is "Dodgers."

Could you guys help me out?

Thanks

This name may be in use by another MS Network service such as Zune. I would suggest adding a word to the beginning or end of this GT to make it your own. I hope this helps!

Here is the official stance on your question:

[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. [/quote]http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/f/12/p/19165/121234.aspx#gt

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.
