not exactly a X360 thread but here it goes (sorry mods if it's in the wrong place!)


One upon a time, I owned the original xbox, then I signed to xbox online with a 1 month free trial, just to play halo 2 online lol, now that was back in 2005, forgotten what email address I registered the GT to and been sending emails to Microsoft to find out how can one get their old GT's back...


So was wondering if anyone else had the same/similar problem with getting their old GT's back at all?? :(:confused:

You cant get an old expired Gamertag back. They lock it into 'a vault', which it cannot be removed from.

Do you know if the gamertag named could be ever used again? You know, after a certain period of inactivity.

I believe so because back in the CSx days I played with the gamertag "RedstaR" and someone else is using "redstar" so I think that after a period of time the name can be reused... but I can't be 100% sure thats how it works.
