I have a sub account on my PS3 and I want to move it a master account, Is there any way to do that?

Sorry no, a sub account cannot be transferred into or made into a master one, your only option is to create a new account, you'll lose any hard earned trophies though.

Hopefully one day we will be able to. Sub accounts cant use any of the share features and its really annoying. I can't even add the free $10 voucher to my account because I'm a sub. It needs to change fast.

It`s supposed to be coming, there are a varity of articles out there that list this feature to come, like this one http://www.joystiq.com/2013/11/12/psn-adult-age-users-can-now-transition-to-master-accounts/ So, I have no idea what`s going on with it, but they seem to list it is still coming at some point.

I wouldn't count on it.  The update to the source article states more strongly that it will not be coming:

Update: After publishing this article, Sony contacted Polygon to let us know that "the information provided yesterday was incorrect" and that, as it is today, "Sub accounts can’t be upgraded to master accounts on any PlayStation platform."
