If its in your friends list, yes. If its in your recently played list, yes. If they have an 360voice.com account, yes. Otherwise, I dunno.

Once an account has expired then it gets locked in a 'Vault'

You wont get it back basically

the only way you can get it back is if you send them a message on live and ask if they can change there GT, maybe they'll be nice enough and change it so you can get your other name back

Cos MS are absolute dicks.

My original tag expired, day after I phoned them up to sort it out, and got it explained to me by a supervisors supervisor- a teaboy i think

What's the time frame for a tag 'expiring'?

Isn't it different now cause if it's due to "expire" it gets downgraded from Gold to Silver, thus, technically not being able to expire.

It only goes free if it gets changed, I was able to pick up DaWebbmeister after I changed mine with no problems whatsoever, but thats only cause I changed names.

The person who has the tag you want needs to change it and then you need to sign it up.

Chances of someone doing it for a random stranger seems a bit too far fetched, hate to say it.

Was it an xbox original tag or a 360 tag?

oh, if its your tag and you made a whole new gamercard, then thats different. i thought you ment that someone took your older gamertag name after you changed it. sorry for the confusion on my end

Well, if I understand this correctly(????) and it was your account originally, then you should have all the info to account recover it. But, if that's successful then you will have 2 accounts - the original one that you are trying to get back AND the one you're usinig now. Then, it sounds like, you'd have to change the name on your old account (thus freeing it) and hope you can get it when you request for your current account. Good luck!

Yup. Use account recovery; get your original Xbox account, and then change its gamertag. But if you do that, it's gonna cost quite a bit of money (Like $20 lol for everything)
