    Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is the right thread but here goes...

    Today I just got my Lumia 620 in the mail today from negrielectronics and after completing my settings, I tried to install some apps. However, a pop-up said "My Family setup needed" and "My Family must be set up before you can buy this item. Ask your parent to set up My Family settings on windowsphone.com" After I went to the website, nothing would show up on the My Family page. I have already reset my phone three times but nothing would change. I even created a new windows account. Do you guys know how to solve this problem or know what I did wrong?

    Somehow it's seeing the account you've logged in with as under 18. That's why it's asking for the My Family thing.

    Well, I am under 18 and my parents are mostly tech illiterate.. I followed the instructions on the FAQ but the "Get started" button or hyperlink wasn't on the page.

    The only way is to set a parent account that covers your account. Then grant your account full access using the parent account.

    Well since you are under 18, you have to have either one of your parents to hold management of your account. All instructions are thoroughly listed here.
