  1. upgrading a Child account to custom to allow purchases


    Hi is there anybody had problems with upgrading a child account. I have tried accessing the 360 privacy settings on the console but then on save it diverts me to a password prompt thats fine but the email address that it was setup in has expired, So what
    do i do now I have just redeemed a gift card on his xbox live account and he can't use it. I can't reset password for original account as that email doesn't exist. So frustrating you would think that it would warn you that when you are redeem the gift card
    under that live account that you will not be able to use it under that current account.

    :)

    How to allow a custom profile pic for my child?

    Does that mean there is also no way for a parent to upload a custom pic to be used for the child account?

    I cant change Privacy & online safety for one of my family accounts to allow purchases

    Firstly changing the date of birth on a child account is not going to change it to an adult account on its xbox profile.

    if the child account is set so that it can not make purchases the easiest place to go to make that change is account.microsoft.com/family and sign in with the parent account and it should give you the option there to allow purchases by the child account.
    then when you are finished making the purchase if you don't want them to be able to make purchases again you would just go back to that same website and choose to not allow them to make purchases

    Uploading A custom Profile Photo

    Changing the birthdate under your profile doesn't changes your child account to adult.

    Only the parental account can upgrade a child account when the service registers that the account has reached 18+

    Unluckily only adult accounts can post custom profile pictures for obvious reasons

    Child account

    Hi I doubt they will ever allow custom pictures for child accounts. It is a safety thing, ensures your child can't put a photo of themselves up (which could attract grooming) or using images that are unsuitable (drugs related, gun related, no copyrights)

    These are just a few examples as to why custom gamer pics are locked for child accounts
