How to update your older Windows Phone to Windows 10 Mobile

As you may know, Microsoft has finally begun rolling out the over-the-air update for Windows 10 Mobile to a select number of older Windows Phones devices. Here's how you can find out if your phone is eligible and how to download the update if it is actually available for your device.

1. Check the list:

Only a small number of Windows Phones can currently support the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade. Here's the list of phones as it stands right now, but keep in mind that Microsoft will likely update this list in the coming weeks and months.

  • Lumia 1520
  • Lumia 930
  • Lumia 640
  • Lumia 640XL
  • Lumia 730
  • Lumia 735
  • Lumia 830
  • Lumia 532
  • Lumia 535
  • Lumia 540
  • Lumia 635 1GB
  • Lumia 636 1GB
  • Lumia 638 1GB
  • Lumia 430
  • Lumia 435
  • BLU Win HD w510u,
  • BLU Win HD LTE x150q,
  • MCJ Madosma Q501

2. Download and use the Upgrade Advisor app:

If your phone is indeed on the list above, your next step is to download and install Microsoft's Upgrade Advisor app:

Download Upgrade Advisor from the Windows Store (opens in new tab)

QR: Upgrade Advisor

After you open the app on your Windows Phone, all you have to do is tap "Next" to see if the Windows 10 Mobile update is available to download. If it is, you should see the app display what's below:

Upgrade Advisor

3. Download the upgrade

After you tap "Done" on the Upgrade Advisor app, the last step is to go to "Settings" on your Windows Phone, then go to the "Phone Update" selection to check again for the Windows 10 Mobile update. You should be able to start downloading the upgrade if it's ready.

Settings

By the way, there are actually two separate downloads. One will update the device to build 10586.107. When that download is installed, check for another update for the final Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.164

Thanks to Karim for the screenshots!

  • When will i get windows 10 for my lumia 630? If i don't get windows 10 for my Lumia 630, i will never buy a windows device, i will switch to ios or android..
  • I'm starting to doubt that 512mb devices will get Windows 10.....
  • be patient.. if you want use Insider to install W10M....
  • If you want the upgrade just switch to production in the Windows Insider app, then go to setting and select upgrade.
  • I'm currently on insider build 1511. How do I get to the release build? Already switched the insider app to production line
  • I'm currently on insider build 1511. How do I get to the release build? Already switched the insider app to production line
  • when i reach the upgrade advisor page on store and press get the app, it says you cannot download this app, this page is for information only,   lumia 735
  • Like WP 7 user now its time for WP 8.1 512mb ram, we are neglected. MS highest selling phone in ur mobile history is 520 n 630 it's 512 ram mobile we need WP10.
  • You can install W10 on your 520 dude. Nothing is stopping you at the moment. Also good luck with Android where most of the phones are still stuck on 4.4 and v7 is currently in preview.  
  • Android 4.4 can attach documents to e-mail replies... Android 4.4 has the same Office apps from W10M
  • What's your point?
  • If you can afford a new Android phone, you can afford one of the phones on the list that can receive the update. Stop being over dramatic.
  • Actually you can probably buy a couple 640's for the price of a comparable Android phone lol.
  • the most people have problem with their batteries on android 5.x so being on android 4.4 is seems to be a better option but android is open source so you can always search xda for ways to install a custom rom
  • I have W10 on both my youngest sons 520 and my middle sons 630. Just use the production ring insider build.   All WP7 useres were left in the dust, only the W8.1 Lumia useres that choose not to install W10 are being left behind.
  • We are talking about official release, and further receiving new builds. Nobody cares that you now have it installed as Insider. I have installed it too, but i want it officially, and with support.
  • First, there is no difference between production ring on insiders and offical releases. Secondly you still might get an official relaese, MS is adding phones in waves. You just have to relax a little.
  • is the production ring meant for firmware updates?
     
  • you said windows phone users were left in the dust.  Windows phone 7 was released in september 2010 thats nearly 6 years ago, I certainly wouldnt want to stick ios9 on a iphone 3gs cause thats kinda close to the same thing.  I think 6 years suport for phones is a litle much, batterys by then are often either needing replacing by 2-3 years or the phone begins loosing to many modern abilities. Also windows 7 users were left behind at windows 8 not 10, 10 is new and windows 7 was gone a long time ago.
  • No, they just want to release for 1 GB devices first. They have to make sure it's a pleasant experience for 512mb This comment was posted on Windows Central for Windows 10 UWP.
  • I hope you are right buddy.... w10m still feels like beta for me on a lumia 720. poor battery life, sub par performance and applications that are not optimised for 10 tends crash frequently...
  • Yeah it's not really ready yet...
  • Exactly and thats why microsoft have said they wont release it on phones where it is a issue, a move i personally agree with and apreciate.
  • On my 720, it's horrible.
  • Go to android where you wait a year for the latest update
  • yup still no sign of marshmallow on my S6 Edge and nothing listed on my carriers website for it and that was a 2015 flagship device.
  • I've had Marshmallow on my G4 for about a month now. It varies by OEM. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Samsung galaxy though great phones are one of the worst to get new os updates from the android lines.
  • Actually, the Galaxy S phones are fairly quick to get updates. The other phones maybe not so much. It all depends on the carrier really. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Point is S5 will not get any new updates. Android support is about one year for flagships and maybe two for Nexus. Microsoft updated 18 or so models to W10M
  • Have they said the S5 will not be updated? That device is two years old now and I would be surpised if it doesn't get Marshmallow. Samsung has been ok with updating the flagships. The difference though, is the Windows devices that don't get update are truly left behind. As I understand it, new apps will not be compatible with Windows Phones. Not making an excuse for Android, manufacturers should update their phones, but the apps will continue to be compatible for the forseeable future even if your device isn't updated. Many parts of Android are also updated in the background and this is becoming more and more true. Android N may be making some big changes here.
  • Phone was released how long ago??? Just buy a 640for $39 and call it a wrap.
  • $29 at the Microsoft store!
  • Come on people. Are you kiding me? Lumia 520 is old as my grandma. There are a lot better devices now. L640, 540, 730 make and upgrade for God sake and let that device roth in peace. It is already 4 years old.
  • That's only the first wave of smartphones that will get windows 10 mobile. If you own a 512ram phone and install windows 10 on it, you will see the phone freeze sometimes and that happens, because the ram is full. After optimizations the OS will be less demanding(on the hardware side)and, finally, we will get windows 10 mobile. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • True
  • Not just 512MB devices. The x20 series (except 1520) wouldn't be getting the upgrade. And those already on Win10 through the Insider app will likely not be getting further builds beyond the current .164.
    I'm so hurt right now.
  • I was okay if they have told us before.. But they made us test their fckin OS which was buggy as hell and we did spend a lot of time giving feedbacks.. They just wasted all our feedbacks...
  • Our feedback is exactly why it isn't coming to certain phones!
  • Yup.. I just wasted time testing this fcking OS on 512MB devices.. We gave feedbacks so that they will fix issues., not for them to ditch it .. I've other phones that support W10M.. I'm angry that they ditched those who tested it and they are working on ROMs for Android devices to run W10M.. Are they ******* kidding me!!
  • They have time to make apps for android, ios. They work on Garage. Still they dont spend some time in optimizing the oS for 512 devices? windows is definitely unworthy of another try.  
  • Garage projects are things Microsoft employees come up with in their free time (which is their good right)... That has nothing to with spending time to optimize W10M for devices with 512mb RAM. Devices with 512mb RAM is also Nokia's legacy. A wrong Microsoft corrected as soon as it took over Nokia's handset division, as all devices released after the acquisition (even the ultra low end ones) came with 1gb RAM as the bare minimum. That being said, 512mb RAM Lumia's are almost all over 2 years old (some even over 4 years) and most are low end/midrange devices.
    So shut the f*ck up and just upgrade already, you long got your moneys worth!
  • No, you idiot, they took your feed back and came to the conclusion that devices with only 512mb RAM where not capable enough to handle Windows 10 Mobile.
    They, in no way wasted your feedback, that the end conclusion is not to your satisfaction is not Microsofts problem.
    Anyway, it sounds like you where an Insider for all the wrong reasons to begin with!
  • How do you know that? Was it posted somewhere?
  • the 1520 will get it.  I think i also remember microsoft stating a fair amount of time ago that they were strugling suporting 512mb devices and devices with less than 8gig storage on them? 
  • MS officially ditched 512MB devices from W10M .. We all who provided feedbacks for months are fools.. Fkcing Feedbacks
  • if you had a 512 device im sorry but thats like a very cheap budget or old phone, how can you find it resonable for microsoft to suport phones that old.  Why not spend saome money and buy a new cheap budget phone or  just stay on 8.1 which worked great on older devices?  Peoples expectations are way to high in this area.
  • NM
  • There is no windows 10 for 512 mb ram phones
  • It's not looking likely you will, MS seem to be releasing it only for the devices they feel will offer the best experience, and that'll be it.
  • i have CyanogenMod 11 on a Galaxy Mini im pretty sure if a dude on XDA Forums can make Android 4.4 work on a 384mb ram and a single core clocked at 600mhz devive a company like a Microsoft can make Windows 10 work on 512mb and x20 series devices
  • It already does work on 512mb devices in the insiders preview.
  • 512mb does work on w10. if you want, upgrade your phone through windows insider
  • Microsoft wanted 1billion Windows 10 devices right? And they decided to ditch The Lumia 520? Interesting.....
  • They didn't decide to "ditch" the Lumia 520. They said months ago that the update would come in different phases. Since some things need to be adjusted for every device, they simply decided to update the most recent phones first, but in the end every phone is supposed to get the update. Having the update ready for every phone at onced would have meant everyone would have had to wait longer, so I'm happy that they did it like this, even if my phone (Lumia 1020) isn't supported for now, at least some people can get it now. ​Also, if you want the update right now you can get it with the developer preview. Some people are already running it on their 520. Just know that it's still not 100% optimised and there might still be some bugs.
  • No. Microsoft said that "Customer Experience" on these devices have been bad, and instead of fix, they will just.... don't release it.
  • Yes, they said they wont be releasing the update for 520.
     
  • I have the same thinking. My perception is most old devices will W10M but at a later date. Anyway I asked Gabe for a precise answer on that.
  • You won't get a Ios device for the price of a L630, nor a good enough Lagdroid. ;) waste of money. Wait for 10 of get insider preview =)
  • my Xperia E4 cost 100 euro same price as Lumia 630 and it had never any lag problem plus it can play games like FIFA 15 which was not available on Lumia 630 and also they are cheap iPhone 4s available
  • You won't get Windows 10 on your 630..
  • LOL, all windows phone will get Windows 10 upgrade.
  • No.  They won't.  That there is the list.
  • My sons 630 already has Windows 10 lol
  • No, it has W10 Insider Preview.  And since the IP is being revoked for this device, he will not be getting any future updates.  Furthermore, if he has to re-flash the phone for some reason, he won't be able to even get the IP back on there.
  • He will. Up to TH2. Insider preview builds are exactly the same. It's just a mind thing.
  • Actually my sons 630 is in the production ring so it gets the actual production W10. Besides, they said "At some point in the future these devices will also stop receiving updates to the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build." You talk like MS said that updates stop today. Who knows how far in the future that will be. Could be years down the road with the slow speed that MS works by.  
  • Microsoft announced this list months ago and said that those devices would get it first, but that every phone was supposed to get it eventually. They could have waited a couple more months to get it ready for every phone at the same time, but people with more recent phones would have been penalized for no reason. Instead they decided to do the update in different waves so that people can get it as soon as it's ready for their device.
  • Same here. If not getting W10 M for my Lumia 630 going for Android.
  • You can already get Windows 10 on your 630!!
  • if you want at low price i would recommend you  Moto G or if you like iPhones maybe you will be able to grab a 4S in low price
  • Thanks for suggestion. But will go for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
  • You people are not worth for using microsoft phone.Go to hell for people who wants to switch to anroid or ios
  • what microsoft phones offer me more than android or ios im a gamer and there is not even a steam app available for windows phone
  • Yeah, what ever.
  • Just like the past upgrades the optimization for 512 MB will take some time. Not making an excuse, but you can also buy a 640 for $50 US. That's what I have and I love it. Posted from Windows Central App for Windows 10
  • You can get a 640 for $30 from BestBuy or Walmart.
  • I have a 535. And it runs Win 10 pretty well! I1m currently cleaning it up, doing soft reset and SD card reformatting. (I hope W10M can handle SD cards with NTFS. I'm tired of the 4gb file limit of the default FAT32 formating.) Not rolling back, 'cause I didn't find a working USB cable at home xD But the Insider builds are the same. I just wonder where the firmware update is. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10, on HP 250 G1 notebook
  • Dude....just what do you need biger than 4GB? seriously, are you watchin 1080P HD DVD Rips on your non hd 4.5 inch screen? LOL
  • 5 inch :P :D But nope, I'm downloading ISO files for pc games on my phone with torrent sometimes and then copy it to my notebook :D Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10, on HP 250 G1 notebook
  • what is the torrent client you use? does it do background downloading?
  • I actually use two. But none of them supports background downloading. One of them is wptorrent, I use it for downloading music. It downloads all the files to a system folder, which can't be reached from file explorers, but after downloading, it sorts the downloaded content to your music, videos, etc folders automatically, and it supports download when the phone is locked, or the screen is off, but it must be in the foreground when you lock your phone or turn your screen off. The only downside of it is, that it doesn't recognize some file types. E.g. ISO files can't be sorted with it, so it stays in that sysfolder, and can't be reached. That's why I use torrex too. It can't download, only if the app is in the foreground, and the screen is on, but it downloads directly to any folder chosen by you. So it's better for ISOs and stuff. Sadly, there's no ultimate torrent app for Windows phones yet. But the situation can be solved with these two.
    P.S.: Commenting on the WC site sucks on mobile. But the app is crashing on it always, when I try to log in. I hope they'll fix it really soon. Until that, I have to bare with the site and it's looooong loading times. :D
  • not everyone lives in US
    Here the cheapest is 95 euro the 3G version and 115 the LTE version
  • Still cheap as a mothercheap. Please, tell me how much costs an android that works like an 95 euro windows phone? 400?
  • my Xperia E4 is running for a year now with 0 lag it used to cost 100 euro but now its only left on few small store at price of 120 euro but other store still have the Xperia E4g which is better at 110 euro and they are also the Moto G series with the 2nd Gen start at 107 euro
  • Are you some kind of troll? I used the m4 aqua for a week and caused 1000 problems and lags. In fact, all 8gb internal storage android devices are...GARBAGE! So, tell again, which device is better? The 640 was declared the best budget device of 2015, i wander why... Don't try to lie to people that an older version then m4 is better. What is wrong with you anyway, would you like be payd or something?
  • M4 Aqua has less than 4gb internal memory that what they adverstise that not problem for me since i have 5.5gb available on E4 and also when i seach for top budget device techradar has the OnePlus X at first place
  • seriously ultimatums.....sad story bro anyway all devices 8.1 can update to windows 10 but the OTA update is coming out in waves, this is the first wave. the second wave will most likely hit another day after they make sure that there is no issues with the download and update process. 
  • Not really, from what Gabe said there will be no second wave. I really wish this wasn't true.
  • When did he say that?
  • And? You think every Android update will work on the phone you purchase? Many old flagship Android devices aren't supported on the latest updates/upgrades. Don't think that every Windows Phone should as well. The 630 is no slouch, being a 600 series, but it's mid-low in many aspects.
  • But even iOS devices still receive updates down to iPhone 5 (iPhone 4S though likely won't get any either than iOS9). Those devices aren't even have monstrous specs either, actually iPhone in general never been in the bleeding edge specs.
  • That's because Android is bloated with so many things, and iOS is nicely polished. It's like comparing Windows to OSX, on desktop. I don't know, the iPhone 5 has a really good SoC, mainly their S line.
  • Iphone 4s with the latest ios build works like 1800 carriage pulled by a chihuahua. 5s is not to far either. That one adds two more;).
  • Yet an old lumia still works better, i dont know why ppl are crying !!!
  • Bwahaha
  • hell my iphone 4s got the ios 8 update and i wish it didnt cause it couldnt rollback like insiders.  Ios 8 killed my iphone 4s battery to about 2-3 hours lol and that was a new replaced battery lol.  I certainly dont want a iphone 4s with ios9 and i also wish apple didnt release ios8 for the 4s, thats why i left apple.  Apple felt like every 2 years you had to updated and change your phone or things just because unreliable or simply broken.\ From my point of view not releasing windows 10 on devices that struggle with it is a good thing and one i definatly apriciate.   Hell they are lettign some of you still try insider on it if your curious lol, best of both worlds.  Its not offten i agree with microsoft desisions but i dont see anything wrong with how they are doing this now.
  • They are Custom Roms if you have ever go to XDA you would know that they make Xperia Arc S and Neo V to run Android 6.0
  • Yup, they could have trimmed the OS down to work fine. Then again, we have Nokia's version of Windows Updates. Lumia Black for example.
  • Bro, we can't even load certain websites on our Lumia 630! Flash/plugin heavy websites always crashing with 512MB. I'm ready to put my Lumia 630 in the bin next month. Its been great value and I never expected to be on Windows Phone for this long. But I'm ready to say goodbye - my 630 will never get Windows 10.
  • If you are ready to dump it anyway, why not just install the insiders preview and check it out?
  • Exactly. I found so many dear websites no longer work on this phone in Internet Explorer. Too bad they do not work under Edge in Win 10 too.
  • Patience is a virtue
  • No, patience is a Virgin !
  • And I also 
  • Maybe upgrade to a better phone rather than expecting the cheapest phones to power the universe.
  • not everyone wants to spend a fortune on phone
  • How old are you? Or better said, how old you think we are? Now let me guess, you own an 630, don't want to buy a newer better phone (640, which now costs like 40 euros and is 10 times better) so you cry about how ms ditched bla bla bla. But you will jump to and ios(700€) or android? Only good devices android has start from like 400€. So let me ask again. How old are you?
  • lol with that act you seems more like the age you believe his in my country the 640 cost 115 euro for 130 i can get a Moto G which runs Android 6.0 the latest version of os and it doesnt lag or anything my friend has also a grab a used iPhone 4s for that price
  • So, somebody that talks with "lol" judges how adress to others! Now this is a good one;)! As for 4s? You got to be really joking, ever used an 4s? Especially on the latest os? Is pretty much an 630 on windows 10. Just without glitches. So why would somebody be so dumb to buy one used and with the battery that always was a crapp, now even crappier? It amazes me the mentality of peoples this days. Moto g, yeah right, i know. At the beginning they all don't lagg, the problem starts after some weeks;). Anyway, Everybody with their brains, or: To each his own....
  • guess you are not watching streams on twitch
  • hahahaha,   you lost me at iphone 4s, get serious man haveing a iphone 4s is like me going back to windows mobile 5.6 with my titan 2 phone or a palm pilot lol.
  • i used my friend iphone 4s and the only thing it had its slow times on booting things once something has boot its works like a charm
  • The word is out, 512MB devices wont get W10M,  @coreyd_0512 We do not have plans to put W10M on devices with 512 MB ^TJ — Windows Insider (@windowsinsider) March 17, 2016 Do you think anyone cares if you ditch MSFT and get Iphone. 
  • Probably, as then there's only you and me left !
  • PFFFTT... like something equivalent to Lumia 630 in Android world ever got updated... double standards much
  • Moto G 2nd gen which has almost same specs got from 4.4 to 6.0
  • It's like you are asking for iOS 9 on iphone4...
  • Same is the case with me. We had enough of Microsoft.
  • Same thing from my side
  • Ok
  • Not available for my 925 either, but from all accounts, I don't think we are missing much.
    8.1 is awesome and from what I read, so far W10 is a mixed bag of results.
    I would rather wait until its perfected than jump in early and have a glitchy android like experience.
    Patients my friend.
  • Have patience!! Remember that Microsoft has said that all Windows phone 8.1 devices will get the update
  • Overkill Software had also say that Payday 2 will have no microtransions but look they are got added during Crimefest which celebrate the game birthday
  • Lol the entitlement.
  • same here
  • You can still have w10m through inside preview if you don't get the update. Plus point would be, Ms will roll out firmware update too. So it should work fine. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • No w10m for the lumia 630 :(
  • As if androids upgrade perspectives are any better then with Windows?!
  • Go get ios or android and be left behind!!!
  • Downloading bits now, Telcel Mexico Lumia 735 SS - lets see :)
  • Awesome
  • now downloading .164 - 107 worked fine on the 735 (so far) loving it! Seems more modern UI than 8.1 at first glance ....and faster (LOL)  
  • Ooh cool
  • First comment on a big news of the year
  • You should delete this comment, its making you look rather silly.
  • This comment should be kurt cobained
  • This is weird since I have a 640 on tmo and upgrade advisor says no update available
  • the same here why is that?
  • On T-Mobile. That's your problem right there. Carriers have to approve the upgrade from WP8.1>W10M on carrier locked handsets. Once the upgrade is done though you will get further updates to W10M without carrier intervention.
  • Wtf T-Mobile
  • Yep, American carrier problems. lol. To be fair, I doubt that the AT&T one will have an update today either.
  • I have a att 640, it didn't get the update.
  • Have an AT&T 830 and no upgrade today there may be hope yet. Upgrade Advisor App says; "Good news! Your phone is eligible for upgrade to Windows 10. We are working with your mobile operator and phone manufacturer to make the upgrade available for your phone and you'll see a notification when it's ready."
  • Lumia 830 India. No upgrade found :(
  • I already have win 10 thru insider. Although i rechecked through update advisor and got the message that my phone is up to date....
  • I got the same message on my AT&T L640. Is there a way to bypass Upgrade Advisor?
  • Yes, you can use the Windows Insider app to bypass the Upgrade Advisor and get the exact same build and upgrade path. Install the Windows Insider app, select 'Get Preview Builds', then select the "Release Preview" ring. When complete, close the app and go to 'Settings' and 'Phone Update', then check for updated. Official release build 10586.164 of Windows 10 will then install, which will take a while (30 mins). Once completed, go back to the Windows Insider app and select the 'Production' ring instead of choosing 'Release Preview'. This will put you on the official future update path, which means the next official W10M release will automatically download. You may then un-install the Windows Insider app.
  • Thank you for this info, downloading without a SIM now.
  • Same here, I'm so sad now :/
  • Could be T-Mobile like some people said, could also simply be that like with every update not everyone get it at the exact same time or their servers would catch on fire. You should try a little later and see if it works then.
  • Same here.....
  • Should I do this? 1520 user here. Worth it?
  • Very much so!
  • I am loving the new features on my Lumia 1520 here in the Bahamas. The battery life is great and the apps don't crash anymore. Now just waiting on WhatsApp, Viber, Facebook messenger, Scotiabank, Snapchat to all make there windows phone appearance. Henry Miller
  • Make sure you set your Browser to the Mobile version (vs. Desktop) in settings...otherwise it won't let you download the App!!!
  • Thank you!
  • Thanks. That did the trick!
  • Both L920 and L925 were excluded. What is wrong with Microsoft? I'm using the 925 and it has been running the Insider builds smoothly.
  • Maybe it's not smooth for all.
  • They are four years old... That's four more years than android phones get on average. Posted from Windows Central for XL
  • You do know that the 925 came out in June of 2013? a little over 2 and a half years... 920 is a little over 3. Neither is 4 years old. Cheers! 
  • Its the same phone as the 920 which was using a sd-soc from early 2012.
  • Yes, I'm disappointed about the lack of support for the 925 too, but I've been wondering about getting myself a 950 and Microsoft are clearly trying to push me in that direction... Can I really cope without double tap to wake, though? ;)
  • I made the jump to a 950XL and yes I do miss 'double tap to wake' but after a few months I can cope without it, the phone is great and well worth getting one in my opinion. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10 on Surface 3 Pro
  • if it hasnt got tap to wake up and your used to it like me it will be very anoying to you.  It is to me.
  • I had the 925 too and switched it out for the 950 back in November . Best decision I made. The 950 is running soo much smoother now and getting better with each update.
    I thought I would miss double tap to wake, but it does have double tap to sleep, ha!
    Go for the 950 and don't look back!
  • That's really useful, thanks. My credit card is getting ready!
  • Get a 1520 or 930 and wait for the big thing, the mighty surface phone, there more coming from other OEMs too
  • I've got a 925 also, but are we really missing out? Can someone with W10 give an un biased comparison to W8.1? 8.1 Silky smooth and a joy to use, would love to hear the thoughts from genuine W10 users
  • Yes this is very sick to see that 925 was excluded from the update.
  • they did say some phones wohuldnt get it yet cause of issues with phones so better safe than sorry.
  • wtf L920?!!
  • Microsoft keep doing the same thing all over again...promise at the beginning, and became nothing at the end...same thing happened on OneDrive
  • That's the problem! They promised it!! Maybe it's a problem with the article, but they make it seem like this is the definitive list of windows 10 Mobile devices. They better clarify this quickly.
  • That's the problem! They promised it!!
    Maybe it's a problem with the article, but they make it seem like this is the definitive list of windows 10 Mobile devices. They better clarify this quickly. Edit: I don't care about insiders preview, I've been using that since the very beginning, but that is not the point.
  • It's the dual-core processor. I believe that W10M is optimized for phones that are at least quad-core, so the older dual-cores will be slow. It's sad because I want to update my 1020 :( I think I'm going to try it out on the insider build and see if it's too slow to use, or if the ol' cameraphone still has a few years of life left. 
  • And what about the 820 or yours only speaks by the 920? Both had same hardware. So please go to cry to other place
  • Not able to see upgrade advisor app in windows store :( .. Help
  • Check the link provided by windows central
  • Got a feeling this whole upgrade thing is not going to go well. I have 4 windows phones, let's see how many actually get anything. Two are on the list, two are not.
  • Then, two will get it;). Two...won't.
  • Make sure you set your Browser to the Mobile version (vs. Desktop) in settings...otherwise it won't let you download the App!!!
  • Can't d/l app no matter what, obviously there's something to do with being country/region specific that didn't get mentioned
  • Thank you for the info.
  • Do I need to have my T-mobile sim in the phone to get the update or could I just do it over Wifi without the phone be activated??
  • if it makes a difference, it'd probably need to be an unlocked phone.
  • Where is L820?? :(
  • Dont Worry, Microsoft stated before that some of the phones need Firmware update before the Update so might be this be the reason :) keep Fingers Crossed ;) - Lumia 1320 user here :)
  • Same here.
    Eagerly waiting for W10M update.
    L820
  • Why not just use the Insiders app to get the update?
  • The 820 won't be upgraded to 10 that been told get l in November
  • We're in the same boat. From what i've seen on Gabe Auls twitter we won't get the official update. He stated that these devices didn't get a good feedback on the update and it doesn't look like they will push it for us, it's even unlikely that there will be a 2nd wave of updates. As for the Insider updates we should get them until the Redstone  update goes live for phones and after that we are done...
  • Heck even more recent devices didn't all got have flying colors. Its just the optimization issue that sadly becoming less and less these days. Some of the devices in that list were also on entry-level specs (but just more recent).
    In these days were Windows Phone devices market share dropped sharply and so does users confidence. Older devices not getting the upgrade despite they're technically able to have W10M, just makes the situation sour. Heck even some people claim they don't have problem on their devices showing how random the issue is in W10M general.
  • Microsoft drowned us.
  • Can't find the upgrade advisor in store.
  • https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.co...
  • Right, but it says I need to have W10 to install it
  • Make sure you set your Browser to the Mobile version (vs. Desktop) in settings...otherwise it won't let you download the App!!!  
  • You have to get the latest version of the Upgrade Advisor app from the store to get the update - that is if you're running the older UpdateAdvisor app.
  • No Lumia 1020 upgrade path. No Blu Win HD LTE 150E upgrade path.
    Microsoft, what are you playing at?! You are happy to release Windows 10 to all Windows 7/8.1 devices....yet my 2 year old 1020 and my 4 month old Blu are unsupported.
    Microsoft will never succeed in the smartphone space with this diabolical strategy.
  • MS must be mad
  • Give it time. There will be more phones added to the list.
  • 1020?
  • Eventually it probably will.
  • Lumia 1520 , still no update in Palestine, guess it's the country waves thing
  • It's probably your carrier restricting it, as the carriers have to approve it beforehand. 
  • Here also in Saudi Arabia, NOKIA Lumia 1520, still no update yet
  • I have a Lumia 1520 in Egypt, currently no sim card in it and I received the update using wifi only. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Congrats (ya 3am)
    The update doesn't need to insert SIM card :)
  • Anyone got stuck on 8%??
  • Yeah same here
  • U need a little bit of patience.....!!!
    That's it.... ;)
  • Strange things happening with my Lumia 730..
    Update progress went from 45% to 19% two times
  • Lol
  • I was on 7% for a while but then jumped into 45% and flying.
  • Yeah....stuck at 8% and showing download error
  • Me too can't find the app in the store. I'm on a L930 on AT&T.
  • I wonder why not normal update. Now people with eligible phone but not following blogs (~99%) will never update. Might be for the best though. Perhaps lesson learnt on forcing W10 update.
  • Google.com Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Great, they skipped over both the 920 and 1020. Both the handsets my household owns
  • Still isn't a Windows Phone with better OIS than the 920....and there still isn't a better camera on any phone than that of the 1020.
    Such a huge oversight by Microsoft. The 1020 only came off sale in the UK about 9 months ago!
    Microsoft really are a difficult company to like.
  • There is no Upgrade Advisor in the store.
  • upgrade advisor is on google
  • go to the web page blog on your mobile and click here then get app, cause its not on the store, it took me 20 minutes to work it out, i wish microsoft could have been either clearer or actually made sure it worked on the store.
  • This all phones are having 1gb ram. But When microsoft will launch windows 10 for phones having 512 mb ram???
  • I think you can start looking for a newer model...
  • Just use the Windows Insider app and get W10 on you 512mb device. I did it on my kids 520 and 630. Runs great on both phones
  • No man lumina 1320 has 1 gb ram but they didn't give update for it.so sad I am
  • I am using insider preview so should I go back to windows phone 8.1 to get wm 10 update as now glance and automatic brightness not working
  • ??
  • Can't find upgrade advisor in store? What to do? Own a lumia 830, India
  • go to the blog on the website and click here, youll need to sign in and then get app on the web page, i didnt find it in the store either, piss poor of microsoft.
  • Shut up and start reading how to update
  • L1520.3 update underway...
     
  • Done.  Took about an hour.
  • Curiously, it's not updating my apps to their W10M versions automatically. I thought it would have done so. I'm having to update them individually.
  • Why do you say they'll likely update the list of supported devices?  From reading the blog posts and twitter accounts, this is it.  No other device models will be getting Windows 10 (carrier versions of phones in that list might).
  • Damage control. It's already confirmed by Microsoft that the older devices won't be upgraded. But you wouldn't notice by looking at a fanboy site.
  • Ain't this just the same as the insider app, so not the official update
  • How do i know if my 635 have 512 or 1Gb ram?!?!
  • Download and launch Aida64 from Store.
  • its should be on your phone infos
  • Ok, i will check.. Thanks
  • mine 640 xl,with build .164 insider preview on slow ring, but the result from upgrade advisor says that my phone is up todate. can somebody from WC or MS explain about that why? cz many user have a same problem and getting confused
  • It says up to date because you have the latest build for your phone. No further update available at this time.
  • Does the carrier really matter for unlocked versions??
  • Nope
  • It matters because I have an unlocked version and it says that my phone is upgradeable but not yet because mobile carrier and phone manufacturer...Lumia 640
  • Seems like a bug with l640
  • Step 1: don't. Step 2: it won't be necessary if you followed step 1 correctly.
  • Estimate size of download?
  • 1.4 gb minimum. Its mentioned in Microsoft official site
  • It's actually ~600 Mb, but you need 1.5 GB so the files can expand
  • Thanks for the info bro
  • An idiot app! The same as phone update in settings! ​ ​
  • Looks like I'll switch from my 1020 to a 640 while I wait for the right flagship. Sucks for the camera
  • Why not just use the insider preview on your 1020 until you find the right flagship?
  • While my 640 runs 10 fine my 1020 was buggy, it would work fine, but it just wasnt smooth as 8.1 so I went back
  • First of all the link in the article takes you to a page with white background that describes "update advisor" not "upgrade advisor"! Second tapping on the Get the App box does nothing whatsoever!!!! Lumia 640 dual SIM on W8.1.2.
  • download advisor was not on the windows store for me, it took me 20 minutes to work it out.  You havve to go to the web page at microsoft blog and click it on the blue here link and then log in and then download.  Again it did not work on the store for me as it wouldnt even show up, thats the ipdateadvisor.  No offence but microsoft need to make sure all these processes work and be very clear and consise in how to do it.
  • This is not a smooth upgrade at all!
  • Agreed, looks to be another botched attempt if the variances in problems others are having getting the app means anything.
  • Fixed the guide: 1. Look at list, see your not very old phone is not supported 2. Curse MS and their failed mobile strategy 3. Throw away said phone or give it to charity 4. Buy and enjoy a new phone from the two big players and see the app gap resolve into total joy of being a valued customer and not only get the never updated app excuses or third party apps which break every other week. 5. Never look back
  • Which charity accepts Windows phones?

  • 100% right LoL
  • Downloading right now 90%
  • It's better to wait till morning, 1:15am here( GMT +5:30)
  • This looks like the same thing as the insider app so what is the difference between them both????
  • No difference
  • @kafftnh, location and model plz
  • if u go to the store with a link and it says u need to have win 10 in oreder to install it, go to internet expelorer options and set website prefrence to mobile version!
  • Link to the app? I can't find it in the store.
  • I wonder if i get here drive still ?  
  • Insider is kind off beta, there won't be much difference in appearance
  • 1520.3 is upgrading from 8.1 to 10 now.
  • Let us know how you get on please?
  • Same here.  My 1520.3 has been stuck on "Migrating your data (step 15 of 23) 100%" for several minutes.
  • Naturally, right after I posted this, it moved on.
     
  • Mine just finished.  Took about an hour total.
  • I also have the 1520.3 but it does not update. The Upgrade Advisor does not show in the app store on the phone and the website 'Get the app' button is greyed out and displays the text 'You can’t get this App. This page is for info only.'
  • I rolled back to 8.1 to check update advisor, told me update is not available, Lumia 735 Verizon. Icon said same thing.
  • The 735 is on the list, the Icon is not.  But that doesn't mean that the 735 will get it today, or maybe ever since we are dealing with Verizon.
  • My 735 on Telecel Mexico got it today - no issues
  • Aren't the 928,929,930 the same device other than carrier specific radios?
  • No.
  • My wife's 830 is getting the update now .
  • Probably a Verizon thingy going on,,damn you Verizon!! ;)
  • TM unlock 830 .
  • I AM A LOVER LUMIA. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW AS TO WHEN YOU WILL ROLL OUT 1020 MODEL LUMIA WITH WINDOWS 10 WITH 56 PXEL OR 41 HIGH RESOLUTION CAMERA IN NDIA?I AM EAGERLY LOOKING FORWARD TO OWN IT .?
  • Just go to sleep man. Too late already.
  • Highly tempting... but losing some WP8.1 that 10 doesn't have makes me not want to do this. Good thing I ended up buying an L950XL
  • Any info when the update is comming for at&t version of Lumia 640???
  • Yess...successfully updated(India) my L730 to Windows 10..Thnk u Microsoft...
  • pls let me know if had any bugs, i am using this build for a week now... it still has many bugs and cannot be called as OFFICIAL WINDOWS 10 Update.
  • Let us know, is there bugs, how battery lasts and if hard reset is required
  • Do you actually need to get that upgrade advisor app? I just keep checking the settings/phone update button
    Answered my own question (appears to be a yea you do need the app). Had to google search the link from the phone to get the update insider (I have wp8.1) app. doesn't show up searching from the store. And then it tells me that w10m is available.
  • BUT do you really need the upgrade advisor app first? why not just skip that extra step and go straight to Settings and check for updates there? Isn't that what the upgrade advisor app is telling you to do anyways? Or does it downloand and install some type of pre-upgrade update to allow the phone to actually get the upgrade?
  • AA is just let your phone download and install update
  • What did you expect? This is Microsoft we are talking about.
  • Can't find update advisor
  • I guess there is no way to know which 8.1 apps may not work after the upgrade? Does upgrade try to retain your start screen layout and/or settings?
  • Is 15086.164 is the final build or official build for Windows 10 ? lol.... are they kidding ? even this OS Version has lot of bugs, still older win 8.1 apps notification bar doesn't hide, apps are slow and crashing frequently, battery sucks........ Microsoft is a software gaint but coming into building mobiles, its becoming least in the fellow competators. I don't blame employees, its mismanagement by CEO, Managers....
  • There is no such thing as the "Final Build" when it comes to W10M. This is just the build that is deemed to be good enough to be sent out to WP8.1 handsets​. I'm currently using W10M on a Lumia 550 and Lumia 830 and would never even consider going back to WP8.1.
  • How do we find update advisor
    Can't find in store
  • Its not update advisor,but its upgrade advisor..Search upgrade advisor instead of update advisor in store.
  • lumia 640 on metro pcs (unlocked, though) NOT updating.. :0
  • Here's the list of phones as it stands right now, but keep in mind that Microsoft will likely update this list in the coming weeks and months.
    Nope. That's not going to happen. Gabe Aul pretty much confirmed this is the definitive list. Once again, Microsoft fails to deliver.
  • The app says my phone is eligible (L640), but they're still "working with my provider (ATT)" to get the update. Figures. :/
  • Same but I have 4(career). Slovakia
  • Same here but I got my 640 from a normal electronics store and not from a carrier....
  • The download link is grayed out via the link provided.  Also not available via the store on my Lumia 830.  BUmmer.
  • I am a Windows insider (slow ring). Should I roll back to WP 8.1 for a clean install of W10M? Would it somehow affect (improve) phone's performance?
  • Tried both update and upgrade can't find in store
  • If i upgrade can I attach a word document? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • It's UPDATE Advisor, not upgrade.

  • I'm waiting till I get the update on my Lumia 830.

  • Change browser to mobile mode!
  • Damn i still can't find upgrade advisor

  • Same here
  • Access Windows Central's website on your phone's browser, go to the article that explains how to upgrade, there will be a link in the article that takes you to the store page to download the app.
  • That no worky either but thanks anyways
  • dear fren, go to settings, change the region tu united states. restart the phone after that, go back to store, search upgrade advisor
  • No joy for me yet on 640XL CV GBIE. Upgrade Advisor tells me yes, im eligible for Windows 10, but they are working with my phone operator and manufacturer to bring the upgrade soon, and I'll see a notification when its ready.....
  • I am getting the same thing why?
  • Updated to windows 10. Now i cannot see camera, many of my apps and most importantly Microsoft store. Please help.

  • Factory reset
  • Waiting on att GO phone not updating yet .
  • @jay, thanks man
  • Your welcome buddy..
  • 1520? How old is this phone? Like four and a half years? And still getting the update.
  • It works great on my lumia 930. Rolled back a month ago from insider, because it is my daily driver and a lot of problems like crashes and screen refresh issues. But after this upgrade and no hard reset everything seems to run well. Fast and stable, thanks msft!
  • Blu WIN HD LTE X150E not included
  • Working... Still download w10m on my l630 :D
  • What are the next that will excluded before Redostone launch? '30 series? -.- Windows feedback apps sucks, full-stop. You cannot use such thing to take decision like that. Even my phone had crappy performance without device reset. How many people really made a device reset at every update roll-outs before submitting performance and ux feedbacks? -.- I also still experience occasional scroll lags when navigation bar is displayed, but I will not toll you GabeA, or you will exclude my phone model for receiving Redstone update (: I prefectly understand performance on 512 MB phones suck, but devices like the 1320/1020/925/920/820 have an higher clock and 2/1GB of primary memory and I saw them running the lastest build (especially .122 and .164) better then many recent low-level devices with a quad core crap cpu...
  • I get on my lumia 640 xl
  • Sumukh Phalle1992 have u find the update advisor app !
  • Yup! Updating in progress but it's stuck on 8% from past 30+ minutes
  • So was mine...leave it for half an hour more an it will jump up straight...
  • Will leave on it.. In data sense, wifi data looks increasing i.e. Updating is in progress.. Installation has been scheduled.. Hope at morning there will be windows 10 installed.
  • Do I need to do this if I'm on the insider route? Or am o already there? If I am not "there" do I need to role back my 1520 to get "there"? Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10

When I run the Upgrade Advisor it says that my phone is eligible but they are working with my mobile operator and phone manufacturer in order for me to get my upgrade. What mobile op since it doesn't have any strings attached when I bought it plus I removed the sim. Anybody has any idea how to bypass this?

  • I am an insider with the preview build 10586.107.what should I do?
  • Just check for update ones more.....u will get .164
  • The easy way to move to Windows 10 is to install the Windows Insider app. Select slow ring. After your phone restarts, go to settings and click on updates. T-Mobile and MetroPcs phones will lose Wi-Fi calling after upgrading to Windows 10.
  • My Lumia 830 phone is unlocked & I got the stupid "were working with your provider message" ridiculous.
  • "Official" - "Final" my ass. They just push this 164 build withouth an optimized firmware to increase the number of devices with Windows 10 instaled and say in the next Build Conference "Now we have X devices running Windows 10"; all the problems (battey, câmera, gps) are still there. F*** U Microbosta!
  • I'm with Lumia 930 wp 10 build.164. Screen turns off when making a call so i cannot end the call unless i turn the screen back on manually. In wp 8.1 the screen turned off only when it was close to the ear and came back on when removed from The ear.
    On wp 10 double tap won't wake up the phone, On wp 8.1 it did.
    WP 10 - battery drains quicker than wp 8.1.
  • I'm with Lumia 930, I installed the Upgrade Advisor app, everything is ok, tha app says my device is ready for the install, I clicked Done, but when I go to setting/phoneupdate and click to check for update it says "your phone is up to date" ... ?
  • I have a question: In the list of Lumia devices, I don't see Lumia 640 for T-Mobile or MetroPCS. Will these devices get w10m? This comment was posted on Windows Central for Windows 10 UWP.

  • Dang! No 920 :( crap. And this will takes months now huh ******* hell.
  • Where update for lumia 925​ ?     :(   :?
  • if I have windows 8.1 than how I can update....tell me plz
  • download upgrade advisor, then agree for everything, then u can install windows 10

  • I'm on a ATT 1520 also. Still waiting for the update.
  • Do you need phone service to get the update? I'm trying to update my spare at&t L640 without a sim.
  • Hey. I use Lumia 640 and it is on the list. I tried to go to Store to get the Upgrade Advisot app, but I couldn't find it. So I tried to scan the QR code above and get to the link to get the app, but when I tap on the "get app" button it says: You need Windows 10 to get this app. -.^ What do I do?
  • I have 535 and i can't find that app in WS. Why?
  • In the same boat like others have posted. Update not available on the tmobile USA 640 after using UpgradeAdvisor. Planning on jumping on that Alcatel Idol 4 no matter what but it would be nice to get and experience the Windows 10 upgrade on the 640. Surface 3/Pro 3/640..... lovin it
  • My phone 640XL and have wp10 insider build 10586.164 . Is this build need update.
  • No....u have the latest build
  • IM HAPPY AF

  • Which country? Variant?
  • I just tried updating my 640and it says there working with my manufacturer..i thought it was supposed to be ready
  • Carrier approval, it's ready, the carriers need to stop schlepping around and get on it
  • Lumia 930 updated - check! Wife's Lumia 830 updated - pending approval.

  • Until I can get a midrange phone with Hey Cortana on it, I am sticking with Android. Sure I love the 640 and used it for a long time despite the app gap but voice command on my phone with all fo the great MS apps and all the other apps out there make it that much better for now. I keep my 640 in my bag to play and I miss the interface in day to day use.
  • Totally agree. Maps on W10M .164 works quire nicely. Not missing Here one bit.
  • When I go to the link to download Upgrade Advisor, it tells me "You can't get this App. This page is for information only" under the "Get the app" button. If I click the button, nothing happens. On Lumia 735, Three UK, using mobile browser (non-desktop version). Any hints? Is it just not my time yet? =/
  • Same here, another of MSs stellar rollouts, bright side is they are keeping it consent ;)
  • Got the same problem... Even have my browser set to website preference "mobile version".....still does not work.  
  • Also tried changing my region to US, did not work either...  
  • Aaand the inconsistencies begin once again sigh!
  • dear fren, go to settings, change the region tu united states. restart the phone after that, go back to store, search upgrade advisor
  • Go to the store on your phone, search upgrade advisor, install it and run it. You will get it for sure. Whether you'll get win 10 is a different matter which I can't answer as I don't remember whether 735 is eligible for it.
  • No Lumia 920?
  • Not yet it's an older phone so they might have to go through more testing. All the operating systems it went through though, Amber, Black, Cyan and Denim
  • Dat feeling when your phone is not in the list...
  • Do you need the Upgrade Advisor app to get the upgrade, or could you just keep checking your phone's update menu?
  • The app is like the GWX app, use the app to request the update
  • What is the size of the update???
    How much MB???
  • Yes bhai I wanna know that too.
    I you get to know it plz reply to me and tell me
  • ~600 Mb for the first, then another ~600
  • Its 1.4 Gb
  • Not for the ICON...I guess we will be waiting again...It's so great to be a Windows Phone fan on Verizon....NOT !
  • Right on DavidinCT! I've got a 735 on Verizon and the update doesn't show with upgrade advisor. Thanks Verizon!
  • I have been with MS since the Samsung Blackjack.....Bought a new phone to have W7...8 comes out but again I have to buy a new phone.....now here we are with W10. I am not buying another MS phone just to get another OS update. I have held on long enough for the apps to gain ground and it all seems to be going backwards.
  • Well the reason for the from 7 to 8 was the different kernel that the two OSs ran,
  • Just upgraded l640 to w10m but can't unlock phone because no keyboard is showing. I don't know what to do...
  • After upgrading to Windows 10 Mobile, remember to update all critical windows apps through the Windows Store.
    Then do a soft reset by holding down the power button+volume down button for 10 seconds.
  • Drop those antiques and get with current hardware! Picked up a new unlocked 640 xl on eBay for $150. Downloading 10 now using insider. 630??? Ain't got time for that.
  • Lol
  • WT actual F?!!? RAGE. I'm out... Gonna buy an Atari Falcon. Posted from Amiga 500+. (Stuck on Kickstart 1.3)
  • No one cares.. Bye bye
  • Now that i finally managed to install the official mobile 10 onto my 930 im very impressed.  I havent checked out the camera photo or video yet but ive been through my normal apps a few games and a few extra apps and not only do they all work but the os has in 1 foul swoop become super smooth, i dont get that loading screen on anything on my 930.  Im very impressed with the os so great job there mocrosoft.   My only concern is that the app to update was not on the mobile windows store and as such they really need to specify the difference between the mobile store and the web version of the store. They need to be more carefull on these things cause it takes away alot from what is on my 930 a fantastic, smooth and pleasurable experience.  PS I still dont like hamburger and i miss gestures beta too.
  • I'm on WI preview, how to install official firmware without rolling back to 8.1, plz guys help me in that
  • I think you just need to go back to 8.1 you need the firmware first
  • Why still need to download an app just to check? Can't we just go to settings/phone update?
  • Hilarious how the fanbois would go on and on about how Microsoft was going to upgrade every phone unlike those evil Lagdroid vendors. Now they sneer at us to buy new phones.
  • What else do you expect from fanbois?
  • Lumia 640 (Malaysia) CV, no update yet, it is release by region based?
  • Ada sesetengah boleh download bro.. Bergantung juga
  • Masalahnya awal bulan lepas I dah update ke developer preview Win10Mo(lepas update dah leave program), entah I masih boleh dapat official update tak. *Problem is, I have udpated to Win10Mo developer preview by early last month(I had leave the insider after update), not sure whether I am able to get this round official update or not.*
  • Is this different than .164 if your already slow ring 10586.xx branch?
  • How about the Lumia 1020???
  • I checked I am not getting the update still on my L640 in India, I checked with update advisor.
  • Waiting for the next wave
  • I'm not able to download the Update / Upgrade Advisor as well.   
  • Ain't we getting the same update as ppl on the slow ring insider
  • Jet open it in browser then click on the blue writing
  • I did that, but get the same thing everyone else about "You cant' get this App.  This page is for info only"
  • Any advice before update my phone ?? Like a hard reset or soft reset ?? Any incompatible app ??
  • Eh.. I have 1 lumia 435 and 2 930 and none of r receiving the update.. All CVs..
  • Seems like people who are Verizon are getting it in the shorts from Verizon and Microsoft.  They are tag teaming us.  VZ not supporting Windows Phone and MS for trying to stick it to VZ for no supporting Windows phones..
  • My camera does not work at all after this update
  • I just tried to check the update for my Lumia 730 through upgrade advisor in India, but it shows that the phone is up to date.
  • Are they giving firmware update with windows 10
  • Can anyone give me the link of Update Advisor..
  • If they are not giving firmware update then there is no use of camera because without the firmware update, camera quality is not better in win 10 as it is in win 8.1
  • Hey this is the final update if I update my phone now with the Advisor app.. And upgrade my mobile to the latest windows 10.. So there is any problem with this version.. This is the official upgrade or official upgrade will release later.. Help me ??
  • i'm feeling so heart broken :( lumia 925
  • Same here.Lumia 925
  • And I also want to know that windows 10 is good or windows 8.1 is good till right now ?
  • Saved ₹26k and buyed 925 2 years back Bt Microsoft think 925 is to cheaper to get W10....
  • lumia 925 is a good phone , microsoft will provide us with the update . 
  • Does it mean 10586.164 is final build released as W10M???
  • Pls don't compare this crap with Android even 4.3.. It's 10 years ahead.
  • How long does the update process take??
  • Why i cant download the update advisor app in my lumia532?? I cant see it in the store also.
  • Just follow the link in the article ... In some countries The app isn't available...
  • A better question would be "why can some get it while others cannot", yet to see this addressed?
     
  • FINALLY!!!... For me I went to the Official Windows 10 Mobile Announcement page via IE on phone, clicked link there and it took me right to the store and app... Oh ya, MS is working with my mobile operator to bring me the update, OOOOOK!
  • Is there anything new and catchy in FINAL/Official version of WM10 because we always heard ' its just insider preview, pls wait for final/official version'.
  • Still not getting windows 10 update for my Lumia 730.
  • Are this 512 MB devices in insider ring getting firmware update?
  • Mine's stuck at- downloading updates 0%
  • Bt my Xolo Q900s not get the update??why??
  • It's sad to see how many people got a Windows device, were super dedicated a year ago, and are just spontaneously switching. What happened to the unity? The anticipation for a new feature? The thrill of seeking bugs, and showing MS what's right and what's not? Well, looking at the Feedback app, it's all "This doesn't work!", or "This arrow is weird-looking!" MS set up rules for us, and we are barely following them. Upvote instead of giving a new feedback every time, especially if it's on the first page (There's a More Info field fo a reason!) MS never said you can't promote your feedback! Share it with the world, not just your friends, with the helpful Share Button! Have a thread here where people can post their feedback links and upvote! In conclusion, we are the new face of Windows, so if we become lazy, Windows will become lazy! However, if we become more active in promoting and controlling feedback, Windows will reflect that better!
  • What! Not 920!!!!
  • Do I really need that ****** app?
    I just can go to the settings and check for the phone update
  • Can't upgrade my 640XL DUAL sim CV 00-hk no idea why just first time it was all ok to get an error number and did an hard reset for try without the external card and now appears there that must wait, the weird part is that already was downloading it in the afternoon and when did hard reset get the message that need to wait for the upgrade
  • Could any one please tell the update size of windows10..
  • Lol
  • Hey
  • The same happens to me with the 640XL dual sim cv Hong Kong
  • Updated on Lumia 640 in India, its working nice
  • I'm having troubles downloading update on my Lumia 640. Download is stuck at 0% then fail. Anyone have the same problem or have a solution?
  • But what are steps required to update a user if he is on insider program??
  • Guessing this is not a final list, i do not see 925 although it runs W10M
  • I checked my phone but update advisor says windows 10 isn't available for my phone what can I do.?
  • I cannot find the Upgrade Advisor in Store....
  • My 630 showing me an update is ready to download . Is it win10 ? Update?
  • 630 showing update is ready to download is it win10 ?
  • Even After resetting my Phone deleting all the apps, it still says i dont have enough space to install Win10. Why these tricks.. How else i get more space when its say windows 10 is available for 8 GB storage. This is a Witch Hunt. I guess its time to move out of Micorsoft. 
  • How much data would we need ..to upgrade.?
  • Why no LG Lancet and HTC One M8? I've just got the M8 because it was in the list of updatebale and it's the only unibody metal WM device.   And I don't like the situation with Lumias. MS posted on Twitter that every Lumia will be updated. So it was the official statement. It is NOW ok to change things now.
  • It is a day after 17, I have L640 and nothing! Suckers
  • I have a Lumia 735 but i can't upgrade my phone to Windows 10.
  • I think RAM is not the reason why some older Lumias are not getting the update. Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 with 1GB RAM are also not getting the update. I think it has something to do with the FIRMWARE. Also it may be a strategy of Microsoft to force the owners of older Lumias to switch to newer phones. But, I guess, Microsoft does not command that sort of authority because people will switch. They should have developed an alternate version of Windows 10 mobile for older Lumias. Considering the nearly negligible market share of Windows phones, that seems the only right step. But, many things are going on inside Microsoft that are kept hidden from us and that may have caused this to happen. For people with money, buying a new phone is like buying a new toy. Guess what, not everyone has that sort of money. If sticking with your perfectly fine older phone means getting stuck at an older OS, so be it.
  • Works rather nicely on my L1520, much better than what I had with preview builds. Everything works so far, but I had to restart it for Text notification settings to appear in Notifications.

  • I cannot download the Upgrade Advisor app from the Store either Lumia 830
  • Am currently on Lumia 1320 and am not in the list...oh I see..!! If this device is not added in the upcoming weeks or months...am out of the windows family.....because if I wasn't a serious windows fan I wouldn't have even bothered to comment or even have this app installed..
  • Change your region to US then you can find Ugrade Advisor in Store. Download & run it....it will detect the upgrade to W10.
  • Anyone know why its telling me to wait for carrier and manufacturer approval even though im using a 640xl (on the list) and sim free (CV GBIE)? Anyone in the UK getting any joy?

  • My lumina 1320 become so sad because it didn't get window 10 update
  • No not all it is correct one...making us fools
  • I have no idea why they even list the 735 on this list because if there is a way for Verizon to cause a delay to their 735 owners, Verizon will surely find it and enable it.
  • Hey guys , my phone(638) is their in above list i wanna ask u that update is arrived for my phone or it is coming soon!! I m currently using preview build so i need get back to 8.1 to update my phone!!
  • Someone help me.. Can we update it via data connection?
  • I bet my lumia 820 will stuck at wp 8.1 :')
  • Windows 10 be the bomb, needs a few fixes but user interface is smooth on lumia 730, now lets hope all the apps come to windows, totally worth the wait
  • Can we update via data? Without wifi
  • Guys go to google search update advisor it will ask you wether u want to update to windows 10, then go to your phone settings check for updates. It takes one hour to install
  • Still my Lumia 640xl DS is showing up to date, why is it so??
  • In which country update is available for Lumia 730.
  • Why haven't I received the update on my Lumia 640? I mean, does it depend on region? Cause some people here (Greece) got it already...
  • Any 730 get update in India??
  • 920 is still waiting
  • I can't search the Upgrade Advisor app in the Windows Phone Store. I can't even open the app using the link provided in this post. Is the app not available worldwide? I'm from the Philippines.
  • Guys just accept it! Windows 10 mobile is now being lost to its limelight. Because it doesn't make me attract to a 2 year old WP fan and user. Windows 10 mobile has lost the battle.
  • K but when is the date of releasing windows 10???
  • Can u say me when can I get update for my Lumia 730 please???
  • Initially I thought 1020 will be able to upgrade to Windows mobile 10, but 1020 is not on the list.
  • I have a Verizon Lumia 735 and I tried the Update Advisor. It said I was eligable but had to wait on Verizon.  Now it says it is not available at this time.  I chatted with Verizon and they're saying I have to get the update from Windows.   What the heck is going on?  I am thoroughly confused
  • Update advisor
  • I upgrade my Lumia 1520 to windows 10 via insider. What happened is my phone messed all app. Very laggy can't even scroll on the screen. I thought my phone is gone or dead. Thankfully there is a windows recovery tools. My phone is back to 8.1 OS. I'm scared of upgrading it again to 10.
  • I have camera issue am i the only one
  • I'm sorry I just got upgrade message and is being updated....thanks to Microsoft
  • I have a Lumia 640 dual sim and the upgrade app says they will prompt me when the upgrade is ready. Is this because i have 2 different operators or something Else? What happens if i pull out the Simcards and hard reset the phone, will the update be ready then? Anybody who knows something?
  • Why cant they just bring Windows 10 Mobile all at once D: If I don't get it by Monday I'm going to die .__.

  • Running the .164 insider build on my L925 with no issues. Runs great! Just as good as 8.1. Hopefully they add it to the list later on for those other 925 users that don't want to be Insiders. Or maybe send out firmware for it. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10

  • When phones like Lumia 1020 is not eligible for Windows 10 mobile upgrades what the point having windows phone.

While me will be waiting for the knockout Surface Phone to be release in the year. Thanks be to all of Microsoft staff's and lovers for allowing me and you to wait while i will be enjoying my Lumia 930 with fantasy personally. Microsoft no doubt the best of all with windows 10.

  • My 640xl is not getting updated
  • Just using Insider with the mighty 925. Apart from the battery leaking too fast on the first days, after all stabilized, everything is going fine. For those who don't have a phone on the list, just use the insider with the slow mode ;)

  • my lumia 925 not able to update to windows 10 mobile preview build. why microsoft doing wrong with his loyal customers. i have 5 windows devices and i didnot use any android or ios device. i want windows 10 phone update for typing our regional laguage like marathi and hindi.phonetic keypad didnt available for windows phone 8.1. tell me what i do at this stage, will i going to android device for phonetic keyboard like google indic input keyboard. and my lastly suggestion to microsoft that your ceo satya nadela destroing microsoft. since he apointed as ceo microsoft not showing any magic like google and apple. satya nadela taking microsoft 3 to 4 years behind from google or ios. google provide regional phonetic keyboard from past 5 years but microsoft didnt taking single stape for that till today. if you underestimate regional laguages then you didnt stand in market where is competitor like google and ios. you will collaps in next two or three years.bill gates didnt have much time to take desision for he loves most microsoft or loves most satya nadela.
  • i cant update my 1020 to windows 10 how will i get windows 10 on 1020  
  • lumia 520 mobile how to windows 8.1 to windows 10
  • Even with Windows Insider I can't get Windows 10 anymore on my Lumia 925...
  • windows insider didnt work anymore for me either. the solution i found was if on 8.1 install upgrade advisor, let it check for updates, check the box that says to enable windows 10 upgrade then tap next and willlook for updates again then will tell you its ready. then it will say theres an update available to install in notifications. this should work if your interop unlocked too. if this official update dont work as intended tho i hope device recovery tool will let me downgrade back to 8.1.
  • try installing redstone build, works fine on my lumia 630 
  • This list is nonsense, there is NO version of windows 10 available or compatible with the Lumia 640. Where do you people get your info from, public toilet walls?
  • Have it running on my 640 XL so see no reason why it should not install on the 640 
  • Runs just fine on my 640
  • I am using windows 540 i update my phone to windows 10 its working awesome 
  • You can no longer install Windows 10 Insider Preview on unsupported phones, like my Lumia 1020.
    If you already have Insider Preview on an unsupported phone it will no longer be updated. You can still roll back to 8.1, but you won't be able to reinstall W10 if you do. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_...
