So if you are still using Windows Phone 7.5 or Windows Phone 8.0 smartphone in 2018, you are living in an outdated planet. Now tell me how you will feel if you can't receive notifications on your smartphone?

Microsoft is shutting down mobile push notifications for these two versions of their mobile OS.
But that isn’t all. In addition to your Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8 smartphones no longer receiving notifications, they will also no longer receive live tiles updates, and the “find my phone” feature will not work on them anymore.

According to Microsoft:
"On February 20, 2018, Mobile Push Notification services will be turned off for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0. Once this happens: Your phone will no longer receive notifications. Your phone will not receive additional live tile updates. The “Find my phone” feature will no longer locate your phone. Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 have reached their end of support dates, and thus services for these versions of Windows will be discontinued over time."

The shutdown takes effect from today 20th February, 2018.

Just as Blackberry is now almost fazed out of this world, Windows smartphones will follow suit immediately as they can't compete with the likes of Android and Apple.

The question is why are you still using these devices even after knowing that the manufacturers has now rejected them?

I mean there are so many Android and iOS devices at different price tags you can get and save yourself this unnecessary hassle.


This is the biggest blow because no one is save as long as it cincerns Windows devices. Microsoft revealed that Windows 10 Mobile Is On Its Way Out Too.
