WP 7/8 notifications

Microsoft shut down mobile push notifications for Windows Phone 7.5 and Windows Phone 8.0 on February 20, 2018 for all apps.

This is what happens, in case you have an old WP 7.5 or 8.0 device:

  • 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.

It's highly recommended to upgrade the OS to at least WP 8.1 or even better, switch the OS (iOS, Android...).
