Hey guys I have a few questions:

1) I want to change my gamertag, how do I do that?

2) How can I search for available gamertags? Is there a website that I can go to that will show me the availability?

3) Is it possible to retrieve a gamertag that you had 2 years ago?

 Thanks,

 Schiz

2) you cant search for gamertags on the 360 i dont think

1) go on xbox live, edit gamer profile. in there costs 800 points
2) when you enter in a new tag it will say this has been taken make a new name, until you find one no one has.
3) not sure, that'd be off the original xbox. still try if you still remember your email and everything you set for it. go to recover gamertag and enter all that in.

to find someones profile or  gamertag you can go to xbox.com and click on the community section, it has a box that says 'find a gamer'
