    No, but Microsoft will switch off it's life support system in a few weeks time. Then it will breathe its last and it will be dead. Such a shame, so unnecessary and sad.

    It's not dead, but it is in the ambulance doing 90 mph to the nearest hospital and the EMTs are about to shock it. I don't think it's going to help.

    Strike 1: No more updates to the OS
    Strike 2: No new devices to run the unsupported OS
    Strike 3: No new apps to run on non-existent devices using an unsupported OS.

    Yeah, it's over and done with. It was a good run, and there will be people holding on until the bitter end. My 950XL is now sitting in the drawer with the battery removed. I'll hang on to it as an emergency backup for now, but the days of it being my daily use device are long gone.

    Please look up the definition of the word "dead". Nonfunctioning now and permanently!
    Mine works great and I have no plans to change from this beauty.

    Elvis is not dead, I saw him in Vegas not too long ago. And please don’t put 45’s name in the same sentence as any of those 3.

    Best analogy would be Monty Python. Windows Phone sits up and says "I'm not dead yet!". Then Microsoft clubs it over the head again.

    My thoughts are that people are going to give the literal definition of "dead" to make themselves feel better but the answer is yes, it's done, just like Symbian and BBOS.

    I think "Words matter". Literally and actually. Knowledgeable people use them to communicate accurately and politicians/ marketing people mis-use them to further their own purposes. Common people exaggerate for effect, to promote their point of view. Dead = No longer alive, no life, non -functional.

    Sort of. I still use a 950XL as a daily driver and it works great. I have a V20 for back-up and turn it on every couple weeks to make sure it's updated and that's about it. I travel a lot and prefer W10M because the battery lasts longer. Being able to prevent apps from running in the background is a HUGE deal to me. Anyway, I will use my 950XL to the bitter end and hopefully at that time I can choose something other than android and apple.

    Symbian hasn't received any security updates in years. Windows sends them every month on Patch Tuesday at 1:00PM Eastern. Let's have this chat again next December for the trillionth time and see what's truly going down.

    You beat me to it :)

    Windows Phone is dead, not right now, but in a few months it will be. Right now it's in a comotosed vegatative state. Being kept alive by machines, owned by the few hangers on. Everyone else read the obituary and moved on.

    That's a typo, sorry. Should be, in a few months. I fixed my post. Basically the time literally is running out on Windows Phone as a platform. It would be nice if MS can create a third ecosystem in the wake of Google's EU antitrust ruling, but I doubt they can and I don't think Andromeda will amount to much either.

    I believe support for latest Windows 10 Mobile version ends December 2019. To me that's the official death date. Not sure where a few months is coming from.
