Issues with the parent lock.

My problem is that i accidently set up my gamer account with my email, but, being stupid i used my dads account for the parent feature >_< This wouldnt be a problem but his account was shut down so now i cant access anything and i cant set my account to Everyone. This means i cant do anything with Halo Reach in forge and the theatre in it. This shouldnt b such a big deal but i want to make user content with friends and i've got a decent score and a high rank on Reach.

What can i do??

Yeah, depending on what you mean by "shut down", there may or may not be anything that can be done about it. You may have to wait until your account shows you are 18 and then promote the account to a full adult account. Or you could create a new account if you wanted.

Shut down as in it doesnt work anymore. He change users and shut it down so he doesnt use it anymore. And my Gold runs out on the 25th of this month, but i got a good gamer score that im proud of a good rank on Reach that im proud of. but i do turn 18 in Febuary of next year. so does that mean when i turn 18 it will upgrade itself from teen account to a adult account?

He can switch the WLID that was tied tied to his account to a new one. That way he can change your settings for you.

Yeah, there isn't any way to "shut down" an account, he probably just stopped using it. If he still remembers the information, he can try logging in. Otherwise, if he doesn't have access to that account any more, there isn't much that can be done about your issue.

Well thats the thing, he doesnt use it anymore and he doesnt have the login details. So if i wait until i turn 18 next year will the account change to adult by itself? or will i need to do something?

The account will need to be promoted to an Adult account.

Have your dad phone support (US its 1-800-4MY-XBOX) and see if he can provide them with enough security information. They might be able to assist him in switching his account to a new WLID.

OP: To answer your last question, to Promote a child account, all you have to do is log in to your account and under Account Management is a simple option to promote. That's it. Again, this will only affect your account. Any console family settings that were set by your father will stand until they are turned off.
