Maybe you guys can shed some light on this for me. A friend of mine told me about a 4 letter og gamertag (not saying what it is right now) that isn’t taken. If I search it in the directory no profile comes up. It’s not a vulgar or anything so it shouldn’t be blacklisted but it’s not in use. If I try to change my gamertag to it is says it’s not available. On the Microsoft website if I search it it says taken. But again, if I search it in the directly it isn’t found. Does this mean whoever had it, changed their gt and it’s now inactive? Does Microsoft ever make exceptions for this stupid rule? I can be a pretty tenacious *** hole when I want something bad enough, but I’m getting the idea that it’s actually impossible in the system to free these up. This gt could easily go for 500+

It's a good possibility that whoever owns this four letter gamertag has their profile set to private and you can't find it or something is bugging out to where you can't see it. I'm sure if it's a four letter they are all pretty much taken honestly.

It could be possible that someone has the gamertag with spaces in it. For example, if some took "A B C D" the system will register that "ABCD" will be taken even though no one has it.

I can't speak for everyone, but I personally would not purchase any of those for any sum of money.

I completely forgot about this thread. I finally got my hands on a 2 letter gamertag. Might get another in the near future.

None of my spaced tags have been reset. I made them all on different IP's and have not signed into them since I made them.

One thing that I've seen work is on xbox one, you don't update the profile picture, making it look like a unused Xbox 360 spaced tag.
So basically whatever your pfp is on xb360, it is on xb1.
