i just upgraded to gold on the website on my laptop, as i have not been on for a while and my membership lapsed.
it says online my account is gold, and when i go into "my memberships" in the "account Managment" section of my xbox dashboard it says gold member.
however, on the dashboard itself, under my xbox, it says i am xbox live free.
i have tried playing COD online to kick start the change but it says i am not allowed.
so i have paid for gold, it says on my account i am gold, but my dashboard says i am free, so i can only access the free stuff.
i have turned it off and on again, and nothing.
do i just have to wait or will it stay like this unless i call someone.
Any help would be appreciated.
