    "Welcome to Microsoft Lumia" message


    I am guessing I am not the only one who got this email today. After more than a year of using my Nokia (not Microsoft) Lumia 1520 (unlocked International Version) , MS decided to send me a "Welcome" email for "recently" (last year?) purchasing a Lumia phone.
    I am not even running Windows 10 yet (W8.1 Denim) but they are tracking my phone already.

    It's all registered with the Microsoft account that you sign in to the phone with.

    Yes. I was just really surprised to see a welcome email for an old phone. I registered it more than year ago. I actually thought someone bought a phone, used my credit card and registered it under my name.
