    Old xbox account gamertag change or recovery


    Hi,

    I know this is kind of a long shot, but I had an xbox account named "" that I used to play on when I was younger. I only used it for Gta 5. I recently had to reset my console and I lost all of my login info. Today I created a new account with the same gamertag but its now #5690. I was wondering if there is a way to reset my old account gamertag so I can have the straight gamertag without the extra numbers? The gamertag is kind of sentimental to me. I read that there isn't a way to re login without the account info, shame on me for not writing it down. If anyone knows how I can recover my original gamertag that would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    :)

    I'm Samy an independent advisor and I'll be helping you :D

    How are you, mate?

    The only way you can possibly get this Gamertag is after 5 years of your Xbox account inactivity. Sadly there is no other way.

    ''ii. Account Use. You must use your Microsoft account to keep it active. This means you must sign in at least once in a two-year period to keep your Microsoft account, and associated Services, active, unless a longer period is provided in the Microsoft account activity policy at https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?linkid=2086738 or in an offer for a paid portion of the Services. If you don’t sign in during this time, we will assume your Microsoft account is inactive and will close it for you. Please see section 4.a.iv.2 for the consequences of a closed Microsoft account. You must sign into your Outlook.com inbox and your OneDrive (separately) at least once in a one-year period, otherwise we will close your Outlook.com inbox and your OneDrive for you. You must sign into the Xbox Services at least once in a five-year period to keep the Gamertag associated with your Microsoft account. If we reasonably suspect that your Microsoft account is at risk of being used by a third party fraudulently (for example, as a result of an account compromise), Microsoft may suspend your account until you can reclaim ownership. Based on the nature of the compromise, we may be required to disable access to some or all of Your Content. If you are having trouble accessing your Microsoft account, please visit this website: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=238656....;

    This gamertag isn't allowed. Try a different one.

    But the gamertag that I want to change is my old gamertag. I change my old gamertag on 2 August 2020. I used that old gamertag when I create my Xbox account. At that time, the system allow me to use that gamertag. But when I want to change it back, the system don't allow me to use it. Why is this like that?

    Can I completely delete a gamertag?

    aagsmith answered correctly, but there is a way to get your Gamertag on your old account; you can change your new account to a different Gamertag, and then change your old account's Gamertag to your desired one.

    I forgot my old MS account, i only know my gamertag and password

    Hi there,

    there is no way to recover a gamertag without having the MS email, but you can 'get' the MS email by contacting Xbox Support they will ask you a few questions about the account and if answered correctly they are able to give you the MS email.

    To contact Xbox Support use:
    support.xbox.com/contact-us
    or
    support.xbox.com/contact-us
    for the phone number

    -

    Regarding the second question, it is not possible to unactivate an account to be able to use that old gamertag on a different account. to do so you will need to change the gamertag twice. On the old account, from your old gamertag to a new one, and on your
    current account, from your current (XxTictozoxX) gamertag to the old gamertag.

    See this how to change a gamertag:
    support.xbox.com/.../change-xbox-live-gamertag


    -

    Keep in mind that each gamertag change will cost 800msp and those points will need to be on the account that is doing the change.
