alright, i found out today that in order to download certain things off XBlive marketplace i need to be over 18. great. I am 18, but the problem is i still cant change my age. if i could change my age i could promote my child account into an adult one but i need to 'up' my age to do this. Does anyone know how to bump up your xbox live age?

Why the hell would you lie about your age in the first place? Unless if your an online predator. :o

are you 18? if you are then a promote button or something should be on the dashboard somewhere. I'm not 18 yet so I've yet to be promoted to adult.

Did you enter in the correct birthday when you signed up? And why aren't you checking out xbox.com, which might have your answers? :?

If you're over 18 and signed up as that correct birthdate, go to account settings/management or something..

in account management there is a button some place that lets you upgrade to adult account. if you are 18 years old, the button should be highlighted, press it and bingo

Why are people responding to a topic from Feb 2008 where the TC never even came back to in the first place.

I'm mad that even though I am 17, I can't download demo's to games that are rated 17+ until I'm 18.
