    changing gamertag for a child


    hello all.

    I'm trying to change the gamertag for my kids accounts. I log into them with the Microsoft ID / pass -- account.xbox.com. Then I go to Profile (which is where I think gamertag changes would be). I get an error --- It appears you've found a glitch......
    Please try later. Problem is I have been trying for a few days.

    I can't find where I can change my kids gamertags from MY account. I can only set up security / etc.

    I'm sure this is a user error! So, please let me know.

    :)

    New Zealand Child Accounts??

    Lol soz, what i meant was, does changing my gamertag count as downloading something of the xbox live marketplace? Can i change it even though im a child account?

    Parental email required but no details

    goto login.live.com

    sign in with the parental email

    promote child account will not appear unless the gamertag reachs 18

    changing the age or the windows live id will not affect the age of the gamertag

    Change child's gamertag

    So this page has some details on that: https://support.xbox.com/en-US/my-account/microsoft-account/update-microsoft-account-country-region
    Down in the section titled: "Conditions that can prevent you from changing your country/region"

    Since your child is a minor, they are prevented from changing the region to the account directly. That is a security measure to prevent minors from changing their account to a region where their age would not be considered a minor.

    And it seems to think that the child account is in the US region, so you would have to contact official support about that at support.xbox.com/contact-us

    One other thing I'd recommend you check is the region of the Xbox Console it self. The link above also has a section
    "How to change your country/region on Xbox One" that you should follow, preferably on your account, but double check on your child's account as well, to make sure the Console is set to the proper region as well.
