    Cannot remove 4 numbers at the end of my gamertag


    I have owned the gamertag "K3ViNPwNz" for the past 10+ years but was recently required to add 4 digits to the end. It is now K3ViNPwNz2159. It didn't seem like I had a choice at the time but now I want the numbers removed. When I go to the "change a gamertag" website and request to change to the origional K3ViNPwNz, it tells me "You already own that gamertag, if you’re happy with it you don’t need to make any changes". The problem here is that I am NOT happy with it because I want the numbers at the end removed. I used the chat support to no avail. Please advise, thanks!

    :)

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    There's already someone with this Gamertag and that's why you're seeing the digits in your Gamertag, to differentiate you from the one who owns the original Gamertag. With the change of the system, nobody is forced to change the Gamertag nor have the digits added to the Gamertag.

    If I have the Gamertag ''OriginalTest'' at no time have they added digits to that Gamertag, if anyone wants to have the same Gamertag, they will add digits to that person.

    I need help getting my old gamertag back fast!

    To my knowledge, you cannot change your gamertag without the numbers at the end at this point. It's Xbox's new system, so all future changes will end with the 4 numbers. Also, you only get one free gamertag change per account, so if you have used it already
    then you will have to pay $9.99.

    Gamertag

    as the gamertag cannot start with a number you can get 1,213,056 different combinations in a 4 character name using any letter for the first character and the remaining 3 characters using numbers and letters, so i doubt there is any left. (spaces don't count)

    but you can still choose a 4 character gamertag but you will most likely get the #0000 randomised at the end of it.

    Numbers at the end of my gamertag

    Hi Tweb2000, I hope you’re doing great out there. I am a Microsoft Independent Advisor and I am here to help you in regards to your concern.

    I apologize for the trouble however having a number included on your gamertag is to make it unique since it’s already taken and succeeding change will cost us the regular price.

    Numbers at the end of my gamertag

    No as it told you it would add numbers which is random

    It doesn't tell you a name is taken it is upto you to look up the various different versions of the name

    It warns you as you enter if it will add numbers

    If you click ok then it's final
