    A while back, I sold my 360 to a guy down the street cause it was broken and he said he was gunna do his best to fix it and mod it, or something like that. I am lookin into buying a newer 360 now because all of the earlier bugs are fixed. Is there a way to delete my old gamertag so that I will be able tro reuse the same name one my new 360 when I get the cash to buy it? or will I have to use some other variation of my old gamertage by putting numbers after it, for example?

    unless you have a current account then you will have to make a new one. If you have a current account then you can just have the 360 get and use that one.

    Well, I sold him the xbox probably almost a year ago now and I have looked on xbox to see if he has used it while it has been connected to live. I don't have anything personal on there like a credit card and I have a password in order to log in. I am not really that worried whether or not he used hthe account. I was wondering if I could delete the account fully so that it is like it no longer exists so that I can reuse the username on my new xbox I am planning to buy asap.

    For example. I had a xbox about a year ago and then I sold it so I need to delete that username so I can reuse that same username on a new console. Sorry I wasnt more clear before.

    if the account is no longer active i doubt that they save your gamertag for you.

    they do save it in the registry. i have an old account that i had on an original xbox and i wanted to restore it but i couldnt. every time i tried to make that account name it said it was already in use but the subscription expired six months prior to that. call MS maybe they can do something for you.

    Yeah, I'll call them when I get the money lol. Theres no use calling so early.
    For all I know, this guy down the road could be using my account and just not connecting it to live so it updates on Xbox.com for others to see.

    You're right, I could always just recover it but I was thinkin' it'd be cool to have a fresh start with my new Xbox. I have like 7000+ points. It doesn't matter too much but it would be cool if it could be done.
