    Wanted my Xbox gamertag shortened, now its only longer.

    So is there no way to revert the change I made, and go back to my old gamertag (4)?

    Changing Gamertag and Reverting Back

    If someone takes your gamertag before you change it back or you try to change it before the server notices it's freed up, then you would get a suffix.

    You can go back to your previous gamertag, you’ll jusy need to pay to do this or you can create a new account with the gamertag you wish to use. :)

    Please also note: Since the gamertag system change, The character limit has been changed to 12 from 15.

    Revert gamertag

    Hey Justin

    Thank you for taking the time to post this on the Xbox Forums. We understand that you are currently inquiring about changing your gamertag back to an old one.

    At this time, there is no way to revert your gamertag back to your old one with you changing it manually. However, since you have changed it in the past there will be a fee in order to continue to change it.

    Additionally, there are still plenty of other tags that you can use that don't have a suffix at the end, if this is something you are worried about.

    As far as why you can only use a 12-character gamertag now is due to the 4 characters that are needed in order to add the suffix at the end, even if the your gamertag is a new original one, that space will still be reserved.

    You can see this info and more in the
    Gamertag update FAQ
    .

    I hope this was able to clarify any confusion this might have caused.
