My Phone down for maintenance this morning, gets update

The My Phone beta team notes in its blog (and WMExperts reader JoeG notes in our comments) that Microsoft's My Phone beta service will be down today from 7 to 10 a.m. PDT (that's 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. EDT) for maintenance.

They're also pushing out an update (just log-in on your phone and you should see it) to "address some known issues." The blog notes that you need to install the update within seven days of downloading it or My Phone will quit working for you. But don't panic. You can still get it online at

  • Interestingly, when I visit on my mobile device and click the signin button, I'm asked if I want to "Sign in to Skybox Dogfood"! Lovely.
  • When I went, on my Treo Pro online to try to go to it said that the website cannot be found. However, on my computer, it showed the site and indeed allowed me to download the .CAB file. The question becomes, since there is a waiting list (on which I am), would it do any good to install this program to my phone????
