I fought that for the longest trying to get my gametag back.. bottom line you can not get it back without paying Microsoft. I think it was 15 or 20 dollars. " yeah a rip off" . I talked to the people at Microsoft i think 5 times trying to get a way around paying and it just did not happen... ended up making a new screen name. So either pay them or create a new gametag...

For the past 2 days i have been trying to recover my gamertag, but i keep on getting the same error that xbox signup is unavailible i tried everything but nothing works.


If it is saying that xbox live signup is currently unavailable, then it may be that your gamertag has become corrupted on the xbox live server. Your best bet is to call xbox support as this is not an issue with your connection or your console either. It is with their server.

                      You will need to recover your Gamertag.

                        To recover your gamertag, you need the associated Windows Live ID and password for your Xbox LIVE account.
                      1. If you're signed into Xbox LIVE with another gamertag, press the Guide button, and then press X on your controller to sign out.
                      2. Press the Guide button again, and select Recover Gamertag.
                      3. Select Recover Gamertag again.

                      • You can enter information using a USB keyboard, the Xbox 360 Chatpad, or your Xbox 360 controller and the on-screen keyboard.
                      • For Xbox LIVE child accounts, the associated Xbox LIVE adult account credentials are required to complete the recover gamertag procedure.

                    Are you talking about the manual passcode that you assign on each console? Or the password to his XBox Live account?

                    Signed up to xbox via online xbox, not console.


                    What you should try and do is set up a "guest" profile. I'm assuming you just bought your Xbox and have turned it on for the first time? Hence you need a gamertag to get your Xbox set up.
                    They simply need to have a profile on there so you can go to the dashboard. (Hence why people usually create their Xbox Live Gold accounts on their actual Xbox 360.
                    Forget for a moment, that you already have a gamertag. Create a new gamertag (you will automatically get a silver account) once you get to the dashboard, you will be able to go to profiles and the very last option and select "recover gamertag" because at the moment, your gamertag isn't on your actual console yet. Put in the details of your gamertag, password, email etc. And accept the terms & use then recover the gamertag.
                    I'm not sure, but you may be able to recover your gamertag the very first time you turn on your Xbox (which is what you may be having trouble with). If you could, let me know some more of the details and I could give you a more specific answer.
                    Otherwise:
                    1. Recover gamertag

                    or

                    1. Create a new gamertag (NOT gold, NOT on Xbox.com)
                    2. Recover gamertag through profiles --> recover gamertag

                    Hope I was of some help.

                    Recovring gamertag problem


                    Corrupt File (microsoft cant let you recover gamertag due to mods hacks and such) that is possibly what has happened. You downloaded a corrupt file and now microsoft has found something wrong. You can no only make a new gamertag and ask for free xbox live for compensation. (you might get it)

                    Recover gamertag


                    Xbox live is down atm most of the online games1.gif right now are not working and the voicemail and messaging systems are down. Im sure that the downloading system1.gif is also down. They now about it and are working on it. If you would like to track the status go to www.xboxlive.com and search status this will bring you the xbox live status whether it is working atm or not just yet they hope to have it working this week. This issue started on friday or saturday this past week.
