Everytime i try to play cod 4 online it gives me a list of blacked out game modes and the same number of people online and it never changes
You probably got screwed over by a modded lobby.
They have servers alright, but they are hacked and modded to death.
The best advice I can give is to stay away from multiplayer in cod4.

Sounds like you were deranked, WaW ,Cod4, MW2 is completely ridden with modders, MS doesnt even seem to care ,what a quality service we pay for ...
You also seem to lack the understanding that it isn't Microsoft servers. It's IW/Treyarch.
Most likely modded lobbies since it does have the name COD in it.
Call of Duty 4 has no servers. Don't know what you're problem is, but thats not it!
