    Actually this same thing happened to a friend of mine, we never actually figured out why his account was a child account and he is like 19 now.

    This explains how to do it a bit, it looks like it requires a credit card even if you already have one linked to the account you need a new one.

    I've read on a few searches that a lot of people are having this issue, and you need to call MS to fix it

    Microsoft Really won't help you. I'm going through the same thing as you bro. I feel your pain!!! But I called Xbox and they were like when you turn 18 you are able to promote your acount to an adult acount. So I kinda said screw it and completely forgot about it. But you can try maybe they can help you out?

    All child accounts are limited to not download free content rated M. Theres no way around it until you turn 18 or you make a silver account thats over 18. also changing the email doesnt help because live goes by the birth date you put in when you first made your live account, not the one on the email.
