    Gamertag issues


    I recently changed my Gamertag to DoritoCrust which replaced my existing gamertag .

    I have had this gamertag() for years and have not had any trouble with it. Now im trying to change my name back to but it wont let me, it says “This gamertag is not allowed.” Its 11 characters long and does not mean anything bad. If
    a moderator could help me out with this that would be awesome. Ive had this gamertag for years and would like to have it back please.

    People are taking tag names all the time so it's entirely possible that those were taken before you selected the option to use it.

    However, a more likely answer is that although the message says that those names are available for Xbox Live they have been used elsewhere within the Microsoft family. Once a tag has been used in one service it cannot be used in another.

    That's actually a great workaround, particularly given you can delete the old e-mail once it becomes the alias.

    Thanks very much for your help!

    Thanks! I think I can probably still do that, I'd just like to remove the old name, it's about 20 years old and the E-Mail reflects the maturity of a 12 year old. I'll give that a bash as a work around.

    If anybody else knows a better way I'd be glad to hear it but I'll try that for now. Thank you! :)

    Hi there,

    I'm afraid it's not possible to just delete a gamertag, it needs to be moved to a different email address.

    To switch an account to a different email address please see the steps on this link:

    But since there already is a gamertag present, you will also need to check this link:

    It has all the steps on how to move accounts around when there already is an xbox live account present.

    Be aware that some steps have requirements like the need to be on a console without being redownloaded for at least 30 days etc.

    Let us know the results
