    Screwed up on my gamertag

    These are the steps in order to change your gamertag.

    1 On your console, sign in using the Xbox LIVE gamertag

    2 Go to Social, and then select your gamertag.

    3 Select Change Gamertag.

    4 Select Enter New Gamertag.

    Once you enter or select a new gamertag, select Yes, use this gamertag.

    Gamertag change

    The gamertag system doesnt recognize things such as spaces or capitalizations in gamertag as making it unique. For example the gamertag system would look at "Gamertag" and "GaMeR TaG" as being the same.

    In this case the gamertag "BierBuikBarry" is already in use as the gamertag "BierBuik Barry" with a space which is why it says "BierBuikBarry" is already taken. You would have to wait for "BierBuik Barry" to be inactive on all Microsoft services with that
    gamertag for 5 years (starting in 2016) for the gamertag "BierBuik Barry" to be reset which would in turn free up the gamertag "BierBuikBarry" to be used. That would be the only way to get that gamertag.

    I changed my xbox live gamertag i uninstalled my account and i lost it.

    sorry but i don't really understand the problem here.

    you lost your gamertag while unstalling your profile.

    but what do you want? your old gamertag back?

    well if so i'm sorry but for that you gonna have to buy a gamertag change. here is how:

    How to change your gamertag on the Xbox 360 console, you can easily change your Xbox Live gamertag. If your gamertag during your first log on to Xbox Live for you is made (in other words, if you haven't chosen your gamertag), you can change this gamertag
    once free. Additional changes of the Xbox Live gamertag cost extra. Your Xbox Live gamertag sign on your Xbox console with the Xbox Live gamertag that you want to change.

    Go to Social, and then select your gamertag.

    Select Change Gamertag.

    Note the price of the change, and then do one of the following: Select Enter New Gamertag. If the gamertag entered is already in use, you will be prompted to try another gamertag.

    Select Get Suggestions about possible gamertags.

    After you have entered a new gamertag or chosen, select Yes, use this gamertag.

    When you have your new gamertag confirms, the change is automatically anywhere on Xbox Live. You do not need to tell your friends that you have changed your gamertag: their friends lists are automatically updated.

    Did you make a mistake when creating your gamertag?

    If you make a mistake when creating your gamertag and you want to change it, then you need to buy a new gamertag. All purchases of gamertags must be performed using the dashboard and cost extra.

    Gamertag was reported, no free change

    As stated in the enforcement site:

    "If you create an offensive or inappropriate Gamertag, it will be replaced with a new automatically-generated Gamertag



    If a player is unhappy with the assigned Gamertag and wishes to change it, he or she may purchase a new Gamertag through the

    standard Gamertag change process
    . "

    If you create an offensive or inappropriate Gamertag, it will be replaced with a new automatically-generated Gamertag doesn't matter for how long you had it.

    A forced Gamertag change now automatically assigns a new Gamertag to the account, much in the same way a system-generated Gamertag is provided when you first sign up for Xbox Live.

    If a player is unhappy with the assigned Gamertag and wishes to change it, he or she may purchase a new Gamertag through the

    standard Gamertag change process
