Microsoft starts charging for Windows Live Mobile?

MoDaCo has picked up on a recent popup that occurs when you try and sign into Windows Live Messenger from a Windows Mobile powered device. The following message is displayed:

"Hello! Starting today, your 30 day trial period beings. By selecting OK you acknowledge that your use of Windows Live services continues to be subject to the Terms of Use and Privacy Statement. Data charges from your mobile operator, including..."

Microsoft has hinted in the past that it could simply flick a switch and charge for the service and it appears that may have occured today. We have contacted Microsoft regarding this and the company is currently looking into the issue and will respond shortly.
