    Incase it helps:
    If anyone else has this problem it is because:
    You made your XBL account before you were 18, and once you've passed that age, they believe you are still a child (child account), and to ensure your safety.. they will not allow you to go on messenger. Another issue is that it just doesn't work for others.:sick: After talking to them over the phone they said they will be working on the problem, (to be adressed in the next few months) and any updates will be noted on the website (xbox.com)

    Can't you change that in the parental controls or something? I can use MSN fine, but I'm not sure what the age is on my account. I don't remember if I put my real birthdate or I put 1/1/1980, so I might have an adult account.

    Wont work unfortunately. I've tried and failed. Oh well I turn 18 this month so it will no longer be a problem for me :)

    I did. I have several friends who have recently turned 18 and they're now able to use the windows live messenger feature on the Xbox 360.

    Even past the age of 18 it still considers you a "child account".... it's pretty much unchangeable Matt.....


    lol I'm correcting you on WiiChat when you're just across the hall :lol: ...


    ...It's a long hallway..:scared:

    Wonder why it worked for them then..Because they registered their accounts with their same birth date....The damn thing is so annoying.. Ah well I'm going to stick to the Wii's Messenger Fx which tends to be much easier.
