  1. Gamertag I want is taken, I think by me. What can I do


    So I just got an Xbox finally, went through the setup, and chose a gamertag, but the one I wanted, that use for everything was taken. But there is no activity, and if I look up the account, the avatar on a site like https://xboxgamertag.com it
    looks like an avatar I would create. I honestly think it is an account I made back in my Zune/Windows Phone 7/Windows Phone 8 days.

    Is there anything I can do to see if that gamertag was/is somehow associated with an email address or alias of mine?

    :)

    Sorry for your issue. Please follow the steps this link: https://support.xbox.com/en-GB/my-account/security/compromised-account-solution

    You could try to contact the support team and ask them for help too.

    This should hopefully help you to try to recover your account. I would recommend to set up a two step verification when you got your account back or create a new one.

    Also please make your own post. In this case more people see your issue and could try to help you. ;-)

    There is no way to get that gamer tag if it is already created then you would have to choose a new name, or sometimes you can get it and have to add something else next to it. But the original name is unavailable.

    If you have the right account information like your email address and password then you should be able too recover the account and access the information you need too find out. Try recovering the account off xbox live with your email address and password,
    and then you should be able too use the account again if you wanted too.
