If your account has been disabled due to you appearing to be under-13, all the instructions you need have been given to you. If you have forgotten them or didn't bother to read them, try to log in again to see the "disabled" message again.

Google are trying to turn around these requests for re-instatement as fast as they can. But you are one of many thousands of people who have made this same very silly error, and if you have correctly complied with the need to provide proof of age, then you will simply have to wait until your account is re-enabled.

Thank you for your reply. I hope google can re-instate my account as soon as possible. coz I have to retrieve some important mail message from that account. Everytime I log on to my account, the following status appears:

You do not meet the age requirements for a Google Account. This account will be deleted in 27 days unless the birthday you entered was incorrect and you submit proof that you are 13 years old or older. Learn more.
4 requests for this account have already been created. The last request created for this account was credit-card based and was created on July 25, 2011 11:47 AM. This request is still processing. You can submit a new request if desired. To learn more about this process, click here.

My account is For your kind review.

Thank you.
