    Gamertag Help


    Hello all. So recently I tried to change my Xbox gamertag and the tag I wanted had been used. So I searched the name on a xbox gamertag search website and found that the account was last active in 2011. If I recall i remember xbox did a thing where old
    accounts that had not been used in 5 years were being released and you could claim them. So I am just wondering why I cant claim this gamertag and if there was a way that I could. Thank you.

    :)

    Gamertag help?

    I suggest asking an Ambassador. I hear those guys are really knowledgable.

    A seriously answer would be that you've got a slim chance in hell of finding either. If someone did find one, do you really think they'd tell or is it more likely they'd claim it for themselves.

    The enforcement team would only give you a forced name change if someone filed a complaint on your account ( they do not read these forums) and if your name violated the code of conduct. Since yours doesn't, they won't give you a change. Also, if they were
    to give you a change, they would change it to a random gamertag and you would still have to pay to change it to something you want.

    Or you could retire gamertags that haven't been used for 7+ years.

    @Oakley Alan, If space makes no difference why wouldn't you find PR1NCE without the space then? Search on Social > Friends.

    It may be being used on a Zune account or something which wont show up on xbox.com.
