PSN Online ID already in use but its not...?

2 replies 1018 views Edited Feb 2, 2014

I am trying to make a new PSN account and whenever I enter the online ID it says that the username is already in use. I then tried adding the user to see if the account really did exist and it said that the user does not exist. I also checked on the PSN trophies website and it said that online ID is not registered on PlayStation. Would anyone happen to know why this is?

Welcome to the Playstation Community Forums.Sometimes those id's cannot be used because they are already reserved by a company or the filter doesn't allow it.Another thing would be that the person registered the account but didn't activate it on a Sony system like a PS3,Vita or PS4.

That would make sense. Maybe thats why. I'm going to contact Sony about this though. Thank for the reply Smiley Very Happy
