For our current customers using the Bing Maps Token Service, we want to make sure you’re aware that this service will be retired on March 30, 2012. We strongly encourage you to upgrade any applications using a Bing Maps Token to a Bing Maps Key now. It is much easier to authenticate your application using a Bing Maps Key and keys do not expire.

The MSDN article, Migrating from Tokens to Keys, tells you how to obtain a Bing Maps Key, and provides guidance on upgrading your applications to Bing Maps Keys for applications using the Bing Maps AJAX Control, the Bing Maps Silverlight Control, or Bing Maps SOAP services. You can view your company's token usage at your Bing Maps Account Center.
