Just reminding.

On 20 February 2018, Microsoft ended support for Windows Phone 7 and 8.0. Devices will no longer recieve push notifications and live tile updates. Also the "find my phone" feature will not work anymore.

Windows Phone was a victim of Catch-22. Not enough people bought the phone to persuade developers to create apps. No customers = no apps. No apps = no customers. It wasn't a bad OS.
