If you're playing online for free it's probably b/c Microsoft decided to give all 6-7 Zune users free XBL?

you can chat, and join parties (parties are new) and you can play some games online,

and if its telling you that you need to upgrade to gold, then you obviously dont have gold

Wasn't there a massive update two weeks ago or something? Maybe they allow that for everyone now.

I'm pretty sure that on silver you can't play ANY online multiplayer game online.

I have a zune and I paid for live
I throw myself into the sea,
Release the wave,
Let it wash over me
To face the fears, I once believed
Tears of the Dragon, for you, and for me...

OK guys. Read the tmobile sidekick advertisement on the dashboard.

It clearly states that t-mobile is giveing all the silver memberships gold membership attributes for limited time.
