    Numbers at the end of my gamertag


    So i changed my gamertag just now, and when i went to play, there were random numbers at the end. This didnt look very clean, but now I cant change it back without paying. It didnt tell me it would put numbers at the end, and it didnt say the username was taken. Is there any way to change it, or change it back to what it was for free?

    :)

    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.

    For your reference you can definitely check this link: https://support.xbox.com/en-US/help/account-pro...

    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

    It may not be inactive.Just because it doesn't have any xbox live activity doesn't mean it isn't active somewhere else on the Microsoft system.

    As of Aug 2016 if a gamertag doesn't sign in anywhere on a Microsoft service for 5 years then it may be freed up but there's no guarantee of that so the earliest any unused tags might be freed up is Aug 2021.

    If it has added the numbers then someone else is using that gamertag.

    Gamertags are used on other Microsoft services,not just xbox live & when you search for a tag on live you need to enter the tag exactly as the system doesn't recognise the difference between capitol & lower case letters or a space so you could search for GamerTag & nothing would show up but it could be in use as gamertag or Gamer Tag.

    The only way to not have the numbers is to pick a tag that no one else has,they can not be removed.
