Microsoft® My Phone Launches! New Features!

So I hope this isn't a repost. I got this email from Microsoft today, some pretty cool new features if you ask me. Particularly the find your lost phone.

Microsoft® My Phone Launches!

Dear My Phone User,

We appreciate your participation in the Microsoft My Phone beta. Your feedback has been invaluable in improving the service.

Today, with the launch of Windows® phones, the My Phone service is exiting betaand launching commercially. We've added a number of new features to the service:
Share photos on popular social networks
With just a few clicks, you can post photos to Windows Live, Facebook, MySpace and Flickr from the My Phone online portal or directly from your phone.

Find your missing phone
My Phone can show you the last known location of your phone on a map. To activate this feature, select "Send phone location" in your phone's My Phone settings. Not available in all markets.

Premium features
My Phone can help you secure a lost phone using new Premium features. You can lock or post a message on your phone from the web. Or, if you know the phone is gone for good, you can use My Phone to erase all your personal information so it doesn't fall into the wrong hands. For a limited time, you can try these features for free, so be sure to check them out. Premium features are not available in all markets.

The next time you sync, you will receive a notification on your mobile phone to update the My Phone software. The content you have already syncedremains available and can be managed online.

Visit http://myphone.microsoft.com to learn more and try out our new features!

Thanks,
The My Phone Team

Some of those features look exciting.

I especially like the ability to lock onto the phone's location.

Re: Microsoft® My Phone Launches! New Features!

I tried it yesterday morning and deleted it due to the sync time. I tried it again this morning at 1:30 a.m. and the sync time was much less. Moving 248mb of files (no pictures/music in that number) took time. It worked and got what I wanted to their web site. The location thing is based on the last sync time - not good. I have Sprite Terminator for that.

Re: Microsoft® My Phone Launches! New Features!

Does the official launch remove the 10,000 text message storage limit?
