Old Parental Approval Question

I am now 19 and want to promote my account to adult,I am sure that the parental account is closed-I closed it.

But I still get Parental Approval Required message whenever I want to redeem a code,update billing information,etc.

How can I get rid of this "Parental Approval Required" thing now?

Hey again Hyno! Unfortunately the same issue remains as before. You'd need to first accept the Terms with the parent account, which no longer is accessible. Please check out http://xbox.com/forgot for steps to try recovering this information and let us know how it goes, thanks!

And now it stopped me from using XBOX Live at all since the new Terms of use needs parental approval, There is still no way to solve it in 2012 and possibly 2013. Thank god I do not plan to own an WP8 for I am almost certain it will also be affected.

I think I saw one of reasons why companies are abandoning GFWL.Microsoft just pay no attention to those who does not buy their Xbox. I guess I'll keep that child state for several years.

I don't think there is anyway to promote an account without using the console. Is there a friend or family member you could borrow a console from? Just go to their house, recover your profile, and then promote.

If you were a child and now are not, you need to Promote your account. This should be listed under Account Management on the account in question, not the parent account.
