    Yes Friend, Windows Live SMS Alerts are going to be Shut Down by May 31st. They decided to do this as this feature is affecting Users of Hot Mail, SkyDrive and Windows Live Messenger. From 1st June, you are not going to receive any SMS when an activity is performed in Hotmail and others.

    They also said that you can download apps for these three or can get them through the Phone's Web Browser. They involved in making Hot Mail, Messenger, Sky Drive and Windows PC to the best they can.

    You can view,

    Get mail on your Phone.

    Get Messenger on your Phone.

    Get SkyDrive on your Phone.

    Hi dear,
    Yes it is true that for the time being Microsoft has taken this policy of stopping SMS alerts for any up gradation activity, that is performed in your account. You may think as to why this happened or whether they will resume this session or not. Well whether or not this happens is an internal business policy of the company and we cannot really comment on it from outside. But I have though of it and come to conclusions from the business perspective. I will share my thoughts with you.
    See whenever you keep a certain extra facility like SMS alert or mail or any other alert systems for your customer's facility in your business organization, then it would cost you some extra bucks. Now the question rises that who is going to compensate for those extra bucks . The simple answer is either the company itself or then can get it from their clients. Sometimes the company compensates for this themselves to maintain their goodwill with the clients. But if this becomes a little more of an overhead and the cost increases at a very high rate, then they have two options in their hand. Either they stop that facility or incur that cost in the client's account. Most popular and esteemed companies follow the first path. But whether or not this is the very same case for Micro soft is hard to tell, as I am not their employee!!
