Windows Mobile Marketplace and MyPhone Discontinued
Posted June 9, 2011 at 09:00 am by orb3000
Today is a sad day for Windows Mobile users because Microsoft decided to put an end to Windows Mobile Marketplace and MyPhone services. Many threads are surfacing throughout XDA about the same topic and this is because people who were using those services are being notified by a diplomatic e-mail.
Basically, both services will stop working as per the following schedule:
My Phone back-ups stop 7 August, 2011
My Phone web site closes 6 October, 2011
You may want to backup some of your data because Microsoft will provide automatic migration/backup only for:
Contacts (csv), Calendar items (ics), Text messages (txt), and Photos (jpg, jpeg, gif, png, tif, fit, wbmp, bmp, opl, n3a, ota). Other data such as video, documents, music, favs, and tasks should be backed up manually by you before Oct 6, otherwise that data won´t be accessible anymore.
Do you think Microsoft is doing a wise move by closing these services? Perhaps some of these services should be included on the new platform as it is not really functional yet as the “old” service” was. Let us know what you think.
This is the mail all users will be receiving.
