I've just logged into

http://billing.microsoft.com/

to look at my services, apparently my XBox Live gold account is the only thing I have. Nothing there about a 30day trial for Windows Live etc.

I wonder whats going on, we need official MS word on this. Someone (Paul?) should put word of this out to some other sites (engadget/gizmodo) and see what kind of experience people are having elsewhere. Just an idea...

Tony - you should clarify the text of the Digg by stating ON WINDOWS MOBILE.

rumours elsewhere say two euros a month...


I'd probably pay this in fairness, £1.50 a month isn't too bad (guess it all depends on how much you use Windows Live though. As a daily user, 5p a day isn't much). Certainly wouldn't pay more than £3 for it though.

That said, this service should be free. Hoping I haven't given any Microsoft people justification for charging now I've said i'd pay £1.50 :(

I can't find a way to edit it, so I have posted a comment on it.

/me looked at Digg's help content.

Edit - found it - have to e-mail the support to edit it.

No way I'd pay for it, out of sheer principle. Pay a subcription for the software, then pay more to my network to use it :(

for the same reason I wont have Sky TV in my house, subscription charge, ads, pay-per-views, come on enoughs enough,

but I digress :D

Email sent to add "Mobile" in it - hope they will do it quick. :(

In my defense, title was copied from the subject line of this post.

Here's hoping it's a mistake and they flicked a switch they shouldn't have? Not overly optimistic tho!

Would try on SPV C600 but Orange seems to have major network issues in Nottingham area at the moment, no network coverage for around 2 hours.
