It must be your hotmail account blocking MSN. Just register a new one.

Although i've never heard of a child block on it, especialy the 360, they don't even know how old you are and Kids use MSN all the time. :o

Yes, silver is free all the time, and you can use MSN on silver as well.
#12
have you changed your hotmail password, because that did not allow me to log on to my 360 again, you can go to account managment to re-enter the password brah.

Why can’t I use Messenger on my Xbox if I have a child account?
The Xbox Live Messenger team places high value on child safety and is working on a solution to allow users thirteen-years-old and older the ability to safely use Messenger on Xbox 360. The solution must ensure that children not be contacted by unauthorized Messenger users, and must adhere to our Family Settings policies that give parents the ability to determine with whom their children can communicate. This is important work which requires proper time and diligence. We will update the community when we have more information to share.





I am now 18 or older. Why is my account still considered a child account?
There is a very small group of Xbox LIVE members who first created their accounts while under the age of 18 but have since passed their 18th birthday. These members cannot access Messenger on Xbox 360 at this time. We will explore solutions that enable these members to use Messenger on their Xbox 360 and will update the community when we have more information to share.

It took me 18 years to figure out that I could put a false birth date.
