Call of Duty: Black Ops Problem

Hi. I'l start from beginning. I purchased CoD: BO with 2-day free Xbox Live card which I used and played online for 2 days. Shortly after that period came free weekend of Call of Duty (I don't know why it was for free but I enjoyed it) and I played online again. Currently I have free xbox live membership. But then after the weekend I said to myself, give it a shot, maybe it will work and you can still play online. I tried multiplayer and bua-la, it worked. Since then I can play online whenever I want for free even though I don't have Gold membership. Another important thing is this one. If some friend invites me to his Xbox Live Party I can't accept his request because I am not a Gold member - classic dashboard popup window says me that I should buy gold account. But if I start CoD: BO and go into multiplayer then I connect to server, I can accept this request, so I think there is some issue in code which is giving me Gold membership permissions for free. I have tried it with Kinect Adventures and it didn't work it is only in CoD. I don't think that everybody can play for free like this or am I wrong? Thanks for answer

So Black Ops is the ONLY game allowing you to play on LIVE currently, correct? What matchmaking option are you using?

I noticed the same thing starting Memorial Day weekend. I had Xbox LIVE access to Black Ops Zombies and Multiplayer modes as though my membership were Gold. But, I could not do online multiplayer in any other games, like Halo: Reach and Left 4 Dead. I had tried googling the reason for it, was it a promotion, trial period, etc.? The closest thing I found was this thread. It ended today for me, though, and I still don't know why it started or lasted so long.

I had planned on getting Gold soon, shame it couldn't have lasted until then, but it was nice having to this point. If anyone can explain this odd event I would appreciate it as well!

Hey mate, you are currently showing as having a Gold subscription on the forums, which means that there is a gold subscription live on your account. If you're not seeing any indication of that, I highly recommend you call phone support at 800-4MY-XBOX, to see what status your account shows with them.
