    Microsoft Account 30 day wait


    About two years ago I added my mobile number to my account, and removed the old one. But when I went on yesterday it still had the old number, so I attempted to change it again. My new number is already associated with Xbox as I sometimes get texts - and I also can make purchases. I wanted to get 2-Step authentication as I have recently moved back to Windows from Apple after enjoying time on my older windows PC.


    I have, in the past 5 years:


    Logged in with this account and had an Xbox 360

    Logged in on this account to play games on Windows

    Logged in on this account when I got my Xbox One

    Logged in and used Skype

    Logged in on Windows on my partitioned Mac

    Logged in on One Drive on my Phone

    Bought a new Windows PC and logged in this week.


    Now I am asked to change my details and wait 30 days. I find this incredibly fustrating as I want to set up secure features now so I can get the most out of my laptop as I will be WFH - but will be taking the laptop with me on occasions I do have to go out.


    I have consistantly used this MS account on multiple devices and have already changed my number, but I guess it has different usages for changing numbers and changing it in one place doesnt in another?


    Can somebody please remove the 30 day wait.

    :)

  2. 30 day wait?

    Hi,

    I gave my Lumia 920 to my son to use, with the idea that I'll be able to activate Family Safety on the phone as I did on his tablet. I reset the phone and started to enter his Outlook.com credentials for the Microsoft account. But when the verification is
    done, it still wants to send the verification code to my cell number - and not his. I made sure that his SIM card is used, but it insisted to send the verification to my number. When I changed the security info to his number, it said that I'll have to wait
    30 days for the change to take affect.

    I understand some of the logic behind the 30 day wait, but for two reasons it's totally impractical in my case:

    1. I have control over the phone and accounts, so I should be able to decide what to active and when - not the system.

    2. My son can only use the phone when I can monitor his internet access - he now has to wait 30 days before that can happen - total waste!

    30 day wait?

    Hi ThysMarais,

    Thank you for your post on the forum.

    I understand that the issue is related to the 30-day waiting period before security changes on your account will take place.

    First of all, I wanted to send you a link on how to set up My Family on Windows Phone 8:

    How to Set Up 'My Family' on Windows Phone 8! (A Guide)

    Second of all, the 30-day waiting period is associated with the way Microsoft Account system is designed. Please contact Account Support at the below link for more information regarding this:

    https://support.microsoft.com/getsu...e&wf=0&ccsid=635088579577783182&wa=wsignin1.0

    I hope that helps.

    Please write in this thread in case of further issues.

    All the best,

    Agata

    30 Day Waiting Period

    We moved, and I bought my wife a new Lumia 950. She was prompted to update her security info. She no longer has access to the old email so she indicated that. It blocker her with the well known "30 day waiting period." The period is supposed to end at the
    end of January, 2016.

    She CAN send/receive email from her computer, but she CANNOT send/receive email from her Lumia 950. It just continues to give her errors saying that she needs to fix her settings, she needs to wait 30 days, etc.

    The phone is having all kind of other major issues - won't download anything (possibly because the account issue, random "low storage" errors when there is plenty of storage.
