Tip & How-To about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I'm going to explain how to upgrade your account from a child account to an adult account.
Okay, since an Xbox live account takes it's information from Windows Live, this is what you have to do:
Go to Hotmail.com
Sign in using your Xbox Live account e-mail and password
If you're not already signed up for mail, don't worry about it. Click view contacts if you're not already signed up.
In the top right corner click options
click More options
Click View and Edit Your Personal Information
Click Registered Information
Change your birthdate
Your age is changed!
This may or may not be enough
If it is: HURRAY! If not: read on
Sign on to your xbox 360
Open the guide menu
Go over to System setup
Go to Account Information
Click Promote Child Account
It will ask if you want to connect to Xbox Live
It will then take you to the account setup
Then You will need to enter Credit card information. It is supposed to be a new one.
