...functionality

I just read some topics about this, so this means that because I was under the age limit when I registered my account over 3 years ago, I'm never going to be allowed to play games where there's age restriction?

What the ****?

Is there any way to fix this? I'm 16, and this game is rated Teen. Is there any way to fix this?

If I do I'll only be able to play for a month, and I already have 3 one month free golds used up.

And does this mean that if I had created my account back in 2003, I could be 18 and not be allowed to play Teen games?

This is ridiculous, plus the game is rated Teen, and I'm pretty sure I was already 13 when I registered.

I'll call EA support.

My nephew had the same problem. He had to create a new profile. It is an Xbox issue not EA.

Could you tell me, if you know, what he did differently when he created the new profile as compared to the older one?

Not sure. He was 19 when he redid it. So go with that and it should work

In that case I'll probably just borrow someone else's gamertag.

How old is your nephew's previous gamertag's age?
