These messages aren't anything new. I have received them for at least the last several years. Very rarely, thankfully. If you get the full text email message it lists your flight info, then says "First Class Upgrade Status: Added to First Class standby list. Upgrade not available. To view your placement on the upgrade list within 24 hours of departure, please click here."

To me, that's a pretty useful service. I would agree, though, that a phone message in the middle of the night telling you that you don't yet have an upgrade is silly at best.
