Microsoft officially announces Windows 10 Mobile over-the-air update has begun

Microsoft has announced that the long-awaited Windows 10 Mobile over-the-air update for some older Lumia phones with Windows Phone 8.1 has officially started its rollout.

The specific build that those users are getting is Windows 10 Mobile 10586.164, which has been previously released for members of the Insider program along with some current Windows 10 Mobile devices like the Lumia 950. In a blog post, Microsoft stated:

"Consistent with our approach to the Windows 10 PC upgrade, we are focused on delivering a high quality experience for our customers. The Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app can be downloaded from the Windows Store to see if the upgrade is available for your device."This list includes a limited set of Windows Phone 8.1 devices and does not include some devices that are currently running Windows 10 Mobile in the Windows 10 Mobile Insider program. As Windows 10 delivers significant new innovations, many older devices are not able to successfully upgrade without an impact on the customer experience. Our goal is to only offer the Windows 10 upgrade to devices that we are confident can continue to deliver a good customer experience.

Again, your specific Windows Phone device may or may not be able to download the Windows 10 Mobile update, so download and check the Upgrade Advisor app to see if it is available:

  • Yes!!!! :)
  • Finally... :D
  • Finally! It has been so long wait.
  • Ahahahah and now all the people that didn't want to download the update via an app called windows insider, will download the update via an app called Upgrade Advisor and be happy. The irony :D
  • Lol.. They didn't listen to us when we told them to go get W10M using Insider app.. They wanted official update.. Here they are installing another App to get build 10586.164 ... Funny
  • I really hope .164 is not the build going out to phones. If it is, people are not going to be happy.
  • Well they will get the latest build tested by insiders, that's the point of the insider program. Would you like a non tested build?
  • 14283 is a tested build. And it sounds like it runs better than .164. .164 is still buggy as ****. Text flickers still when listening to music. MS apps crash too often. Tiles are blank when returning to start screen or opening folders. Cortana refuses to work sometimes. Edge is a mess. If they are releasing .164 to the public, MS is killing Windows Phone. People are going to be pissed. Going from a the best OS I've used 8.1.1 to .164, which is like using and old Android phone.
  • Don't what phone you have but my 640 runs .164 with none of the problems that you have.
  • - That's what she said... right before she had me roll her phone back to 8.1
  • Yeah, starting to think .164 has been a step backward on my L925 from the previous build. Apps crash more than before, mobile hotspot no longer stable. Sigh.
  • the point is that it makes The OS official, no more rolling back to 8.1
  • A point you invented :)
  • I haven't rolled back for a looong time
  • That app is just to check that the update is available for ur mobile are not. Not to download from it.
  • The two apps work in the same way :)
  • No they don't. So much for getting on your high horse.
  • You open the app, unlock the w10 update and then you go to settings :) Same thing.
  • Orrr you just go to Windows Update. Its not a requirement. Your point is moot.
  • "The Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor app can be downloaded from the Windows Store to see if the upgrade is available for your device." No where the article implies that we need the app to get the update.
  • The insider program is for testing releases though... It would make sense for people who wouldn't want to enroll their phones to a test-branch to wait for the official update. Sent from my Windows 10 PC.
  • Can we freshly install W10M like W10? i.e. Via any PC app or anything else. Using L520
  • Install and do a hard reset without restoring any backups.
  • I suggest you hard reset BEFORE the upgrade to Win 10 Mobile. That is the cleanest way to install a frresh OS
  • The difference here is that this is a RELEASE. Not a beta.
  • Yeeeeeppeeeeeeeee its here
    Finally ;!!!!!!!!!
    Waited soooooo looooooong
  • Yawn. I've got a AT&T 1520 and have been on the TP slow ring all along so I already have the .164 update so for once I am good and don't need to update. YaY for me....heh
  • I thing Lumia 1320,1020,920,820 which are having 1gb ram is still not eligible for windows 10 mobile
    Actually I am not a windows phone fan, I'm a Nokia fan
    I'm not going to buy a Microsoft phone to get windows 10
    Switching to android
  • Windows 10 : Coming Soon The Series has finally met its final episode.
  • Now that just leaves a coming soon on Cortana, Facebook, and most importantly Outlook
  • Just waiting for the Season 2
  • You think? Season 2 is coming soooooon with Restone ;)
  • Whooaaa.. Hold on guys. Read carefully, some older devices running 8.1 WON'T get official Windows 10 update at all, and W10 Insiders with unsupported devices will get updates only from 1586 branch, and will -at some point- become unsupported. It's either: stay on unsupported build or roll-back to 8.1.
  • Most of the unsupported phones are four years old... And 8.1 will not be supported either. Sent from my Windows 10 PC.
  •   My L635 is a little over a year old.
  • Yours yes, but the phone was launched in june 2014 Posted from Windows Central windows 10 App On my Lumia 930
  • So for those of us on Verizon, MS won't release a phone that works on CDMA and they won't allow existing phones like the 928 to be officially upgraded.  We're screwed.  (Changing to ATT is out of the question and I'd happily buy a Win 10 phone with decent specs if someone would release one).  And my 928 runs Win 10 insider preview just fine. 
  • Hey guys, upgrade advisor says thar update is available for my phonw but when i check for updates, there is nothing. Wtf?
  • Give it a few minutes. Sent from my Windows 10 PC.
  • been about 30 mins of me pushing check for updates after update advisor telling me there is an update :/ blu win hd x150q
  • It is a staggered rollout, so it will probably arrive sooner rather than later.
  • Consider yourself lucky. The store won't let me install the advisor app on my 640.
  • What's the size of update?
    And how much free memory is required? Coz my 730 phone memory only has 2GB free remaining is system memory...
  • 1.5 gb is required.
  • Wtf seriously......bur not for 512ram i think
  • Yeah
  • Wohoooo
  • So happy for Microsoft!!! :)
  • Finally but when, in Nigeria
  • Download upgrade advisor app then only your device will get the update if it is eligible.
  • App is not showing in store in Lumia 640
  • u wont find it directly in the store.. search as update advisor in google nd go to 1st seach winbeta.. in the it is shown as update advisor click on it.. it will head u to upgrade advisor app in th store..
  • Thats nice of MS to make it easy to find. Why on Earth is it not in the store when searching?
  • Because its microsoft
  • Because they hate you.  And me, and everyone else too.
  • you mean Bing, right? :P
  • Check out "Upgrade Advisor" for Windows Phone http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=fbe47e4f-7769-4103-910e-dca8c43e0b07
  • Is it only on 8 or 10 as well? I cant find it on either Store
  • My body is ready.
  • Umm what about your device? It's that ready Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • My device is tell in me noooo but my body...my bodyyyyyy's tell in me yeeee-hes!
  • i laughed so hard at this... 
  • Waaaahhh
  • Yay!!
  • Finally!
  • finally :)
  • When in India????
  • Lol. Same Question.. And Which Devices are included?
  • Not yet available for Lumia 640. Just checked.
  • Update will get through upgrade advisor app like it was in Windows 10 for pc
  • Yup got it now. Downloading. Interesting to note that Upgrade Advisor was not listed in store when searched. But can be downloaded through links.
  • Can you post the link for Upgrade Advisor app in India. I have searched for the app in store and couldn't find it on my L535.
  • Just search for upgrade advisor for mobile and you can get it. There is no separate link for India.
    Even if posted here it is difficult to copy it.
  • Its available on my 640, India. Instal upgrade advisor and you will also get it
  • Phones and devices that can upgrade to Windows 10: Lumia 1520, 930, 640, 640XL, 730, 735, 830, 532, 535, 540, 635 1GB, 636 1GB, 638 1GB, 430, 435, BLU Win HD w510u, BLU Win HD LTE x150q, MCJ Madosma Q501
  • 435 is there , this is great news.
  • Download upgrade advisor app.
  • I try to download it but it says I must have Windows 10, lol
  • Same here (Lumia 830, CV IT).
  • I swear, that question has to become a new meme for Windows Central. Almost every article has someone asking that exact same question with the exact same wording.
  • That's coz Microsoft ignores the Indian audience when releasing new products or services even though there is huge potential
  • Just because a US company releases patches on their home turf first does not equate to being 'ignored'...
  • Especially with those: "?????", cause one question mark is too mainstream.
    Yea, as well as sometimes they spell it "wen", and you're like: "wen zis stop?????"
  • Yeah I'm seeing so many parodies of it now. "When in Malaysia", "Wen on Mars????", etc lol. Windows Central, this needs to be a new meme t-shirt that you guys make every now and then like the "Seems faster" shirts. We need "Wen in ____ ?????" shirts lol
  • When in Malaysia? Haha!
  • Using 640XL, checked for update, no update available. Installed upgrade advisor, checked upgrade from app, and yay, it's available, downloading now. Please use that app. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • What carrier are you using the 640XL on? We have two 640XL's in our household on AT&T and neither show an update ready for install.
  • My Lumia 930, India is getting it now... :D
  • build number?
  • 164
  • For which phones /carriers/countries hmmm
  • Yes all want to know
  • .164? Or something new?
  • I hope something newer.
  • That would put it ahead of the existing Windows 10 Mobile devices though...unless they release an update for existing W10M devices at the same time.
  • .164. Newer builds will first be tested by the insiders.
  • That is not good. .164 is nowhere near where it needs to be for people to be happy if they upgrade from 8.1. I'd call it a downgrade from 8.1.   From what I've read Build 14283 sounds better than .164. .164 still has a lot of bugs.
  • Yip. From "Coming soon" to "Too Soon" Its stable, but still buggy.
  • 14283 has more bugs than 164... It is the second redstone build available and will introduce new functionality that might or might not work in a few builds. Sent from my Windows 10 PC.
  • .164 is a very good candidate for the supported phones.
  • Not even close
  • .164 works great on my 640 xl. No random restarts, no bugs, nothing except that background one.
  • So bugs then lol
  • Every os has some bugs.
  • Yea.. Some. This takes the cake however
  • Dude. come on. No bugs? I have blank tiles when opening folders or returning to start screen, text flickering when changing songs while listening to music (something that 14283 fixed). MS apps crashing, And a camera app that crashes during rich capture.   This sucks man. I guarentee people are going to **** all over this .164 build. I don't want to leave Windows Phone. Been using them since WP7. Releasing an OS this buggy is going to hurt Windows Phone. They can't afford that with 2% of smartphone users using WP.
  • Yeah, the text flickering, I forgot about that. That's all for me.
  • Text flickering has already been fixed in a build, why is it still a problem with the build they are releasing? There are are over 10,000 upvotes for them to fix this bug just on the first page of feedback. I listen to music all the time. And not being able to read what is about to play is frutrating.   It's a big deal for alot of people.
    Post sarcatic comments in a month when w10m users switch to iphone or Android when they are fed up with buggy w10m. Both iphone and Android have beeter MS apps than w10m devices. Outlook being one of them.
  • Because Redstone right now has more bugs.
  • Regardless of which build has more bugs. w10m is not ready for a public release. This is like when they released the 950's and they got terrible reviews. This build is buggy, too buggy to release to the public. It's another nail in the coffin. I give up man.
  • It's not even close to 'acceptable' on my 730. Too many glitches.
  • Now all I need to know is when it'll come to the BLU Win HD. It was confirmed it would be able to update to Windows 10 Mobile sometime last year. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • Wow... But what about guys on insider previews?? I am on release preview channel?? Posted via Windows Central App for Windows 10
  • Do we get out of windows insider or just download the offical?
  • You are already on W10m... Aren't you? Sent from my Windows 10 PC.
  • You already have the last version.
  • What about firmware update??
  • Firmware updates will be available to few phones, not all of them. Some phone won't need that. If your phone needs one, you will get when the update it's available Over the Air. (without using this Upgrade App).
  • U really don't need to get out of insider preview and get the latest cuz you already are on one! Posted from Lumia 730 running Windows 10
  • It's finally here! Let's get installing!
  • Lumia icon?
  • Reportedly the 930 has it and that's just the international version. With the way Verizon is you might be better just using Windows Insider and trying production and if that doesn't work use slow ring. If I remember correctly slow ring is on the same version right now as release. I wouldn't hold my breath for Verizon to rush to release officially.
  • Mazel tov This comment was posted on Windows Central for Windows 10 UWP.
  • No 540
  • Yes, 540 is on the list. It will be able to get the upgrade in most cases
  • 1020??? Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I'm honestly hoping that they don't push it to the 920's.  good phone on 8.1, slow as a snail on 10.  the 1020 would probably be the same since it's the same processor, only difference is RAM.
  • It's not coming to the 920 or the 1020 according to the upgrade FAQ - I agree it's probably a good thing. The 1020 was bloody slow, I know from experience - If it had 930 internals w/ 1020 sensor it would have been a beast.
  • Too bad, I have been running .164 since it came out on my 1020 and it has been great. Smooth and responsive, no phone freezes, no hard or soft reset. Lucky I guess, or just BS from MS.
  • I got non-insider .29 in January on T-Mobile Germany. It already rolled out on some carriers weeks ago. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • Thank you Microsoft
  • Only for Lumia 435, Lumia 535, Lumia 635 1 GB, Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735, Lumia 730, Lumia 830, Lumia 930,Lumia 1520
  • Yeah!!!!!! Sooooo coooll!!!!!!
  • If I am on Release Preview Ring, should I go back to production? Do I need to reinstall everything? I am sure WC will come up with an article on this soon :P
  • That's what I'm wondering lol. Do we get out of windows Insider?
  • You are already on w10m, aren't you? Sent from my Windows 10 PC.
  • If you are on release preview, you are on the same build. Remove yourself if you don't want future builds of this branch (not Redstone)
  • That's what I think too. I assume a rollback is not needed. BTW, W10M .164 is pretty stable on my 930, been using for around 2 weeks now.
  • Funny enough, it seems better on all of my devices except my 950. Hope the AT&T firmware comes fairly soon. My and my wife's 1520 is running great. Dare I say 8 great? Maybe....
  • Do not rollback!!! Posted from Lumia 730 running Windows 10
  • yeah stable but there's fast battery draining and heat too. .107 was cool and long lasting for me
  • Wen on Mars?
  • Lol
  • When on Venus and Moon ?
  • When in Uranus?
  • It originated from there
  • Do I opt out of windows insider and download the official or stay?
  • Not sure, I was wandering the same. I opted out of it. There is a Leave Program choice in the elipses menu in the Windows Insider app.
  • You guys are already on w10m. Sent from my Windows 10 PC.
  • And its buggy
  • I've opted out to see if it would hit my phone and it told me that I was up to date. Running .164 on a 1520... Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
    Using My Beastly 1520
  • Same here. .164 on 640xl. Hopefully it's the latest redstone build (14283) and not .164. .164 is still buggy and the Edge browser is almost unusable. In my opinion.
  • If .164 is buggy for you then Redstone will be far worse...
  • hehehehhe.... i cant believe its just happening... thanku microsoft...
  • Is it available for lumia 535?
  • Yes.
  • I have checked it through update advisor n from the phone update too it is showing ur phone is upto date & no upgrade is required m using 535 (india)
  • Update the upgrade advisor app first then check
  • Upgrade advisor app is not available in the app store.
  • Check em again.
  • Download Update Advisor apps if u wanna get the w10m(public release) update. *For selected device only*
  • Which type of selected devices? cuz i can't in 1520 Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • Lumia with 1gb of ram or higher accept 1020/1320/920/925/820(idk why). U should get the update if you're using wp 8.1
  • I can't even find the app in the store and I'm not able to download it from the internet side.  I'm using a 1520 as well.
  • Here's the link for Update Advisor : https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https%3A%2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.co...
  • Likely processor related but also because MS hasn't spent much time validating much older devices.
  • I think they will allow the update sometime later. May be to avoid server traffic
  • This app is not available by directly searching into store. Search in internet explorer and then open the official Microsoft site and it will take you to the store then download it
  • Finally!!!!!!!!!
  • Not for india right???? Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • No buddy... The update has rolled in india also...provided your device is listed in the 1st round of update
  • Which are the devices?????
    It's 640 DS enlisted
  • Its available through upgrade advisor app
  • Yes someone please tell wch devices are getting update .. Posted via Windows Central App for Windows 10
  • Devices with 1 gb ram
  • Yes •••
  • That is a negative on the 928.
  • Yes -- I don't understand why. As far as I know, my 928 is a 1 GB device.  
  • Which build is it? Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • The day has finally arrived
  • At last the wait is over... Hope for a stable version after a delay of 4 months... Fingers crossed
  • nevermind this post.
  • When in India??
  • Its available all around the world. Its raining windows 10
  • Downloading the app right now. If it says yes, I'll have some programs for tonight :D Rolling back to 8.1, reformatting the SD card, installing the official update, (and new firmware if available), and reinstalling all my programs, copying all my music, etc... :D Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10, on HP 250 G1 notebook
  • How do you download the app?
  • I just taped the link in the article on my phone. It opened the store site of the app in edge, and than I clicked on "Get the App", and it opened the store app, with this app :D Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10, on HP 250 G1 notebook
  • It says, that the device is already up to date, so it doesn't needs to be upgraded. But if the official update is available for my phone, I want to do this for making my phone more stable. So does anybody know, if the single sim Lumia 535 (RM-1089-1064) is involved in this upgrade? Please! I really don't want to do this for nothing :D Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10, on HP 250 G1 notebook
  • What about those on insider
  • You don't need to switch back unless you want to stop getting new Insider Builds.
  • I mean insiders will get the update normally just by stepping out of the insider program or anything else needs to be done
  • Listen you're already on .164 update just stay on it and just don't rollback cuz if u do you will again download the same thing via official update Posted from Lumia 730 running Windows 10
  • Ok thanks for making it clear to me
  • I am on the insider fast ring with my L535 dual sim but not getting any updates after 10586.107. Why?
  • switch to slow or preview ring fast is only for redstone now
  • The windows 10 upgrade advisor does not yet exist in Store!
  • It exists. It's the same upgrade advisor. There's a new update for it today
  • Check out "Upgrade Advisor" for Windows Phone http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=fbe47e4f-7769-4103-910e-dca8c43e0b07 try installing this to get windows 10 mobile update
  • THANKS
  • "To use this app, upgrade to Windows 10". FFS!!!
  • Yup...same here...even though the supported OS version clearly state 8.1 as supported...
  • It's just called Update Advisor.  
  •  use the QR code from Microsoft store (link above). Why? Mistery?
  • I can't find it neither, it doesn't exist.
  • Are you running 8.1 or 10?
  • Congrats people :-) Enjoy!
  • You really are all over the place... you may want to get checked for a low level bi-polar disorder... serious... I'm really trying to help...
  • Omg
  • No update on 540 and 925.Just checked
  • FIRMWARE 1520? UNLOCKED
  • Yes... Just saw the announcement on twitter and guess what? The update is already downloading :D
  • Good news
  • Nothing on my L925 :(
  • I'm going to miss my old Zune/music hub player once I upgrade my 1520 :(
  • Which models are getting it???
    What is the size???
  • About 1.4GB
  • Basically just the x3x and x4x series, 1GB ram and above.
  • Oh yeah!!! ❤
  • The said upgrader app isn't available in the store. Does anyone have a link??
  • I can not find  Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor in the store from my Lumia 640 windows 8.1? Edit: I found it by using the QR code on Microsoft site. Why? Mistery.
  • *Rub eyes*
    *Reads again*
    *Rubs eyes again* Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay :D :D
  • The wait is over, gonna busy this late night for upgrade.
  • Update: Currently downloading the update, Upgrade Advisor direct me me to Phone Update in Setting.
  • Ugh! My 630 isn't eligible!
  • For phones that aren't officially supported you can update to Windows 10 using the Insider app and selecting the 'Release Preview' ring. Once the update is installed, go back to the Insider app and switch to the 'Production' ring. This will give you exactly the same experience and upgrade path as the users who are receiving the official OTA.
  • Unsupported phones will not get Redstone builds though - So you can only use it temporarily using that above method.
  • Where did you get that information from?
  • Microsoft
  • I'm little confused, when they are releasing the same Insider build today, which is supported by almost all Lumia, then why they are not releasing it official when it is the exact same build?
  • Lumia 630 is not listed in first wave of update. So later I think it will be available
  • I want it for my 930
  • I can't see the update over the air.
  • Yet not get update update in Lumia 640xl in India
  • 1020;-;??
  • Not eligible for the upgrade I'm afraid.
  • Is this a joke ohh common plzzz
  • Crap. I need a change of underwear now. Thanks Windows Central. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Nothing yet for 820. I guess it'll be another month.
  • How I read it, it sounds like this is THE list of phones and there won't be more added - That's just my interpretation though
  • When in the Philippines
  • Crap no updates for Lumia 920 (India)
  • Downloading now in my Lumia 1520 in UK. ;)
  • i didnt get any updateon my lumia 535 in India
  • Update is available through update advisor app here is the link
    https://www.windowscentral.com/e?link=https%3A%2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.co...
  • I want to know for Mexico which carriers will support this (Movistar, Telcel or both)  I read the 435 will support Windows 10 update, this is a very cheap phone so I might get this phone to use Windows 10 officially on a budget device.
  • Yeah, I'm on the same boat as you pal, I want to know uf Telcel is going to go through this, but his actual lack of interest in Windows Phone put me to believe they are hardly going to work on this.
  • I'm on Telcel too but if Movistar is the only OEM supporting this, I'll get a second phone with another carrier since I don't have data plan, later I can go to carrier support and unlock this to use my Telcel chip.  Cheers!
  • Happy day today Posted via the Windows Central App for Android

  • Guessing Windows 10 Mobite OTA is release version .164 that rolled out to Insider Preview.  Tried the Update Advisor and it said "Your phone is up to date. There is no upgrade required."  Which kind of stinks since there are more than a few buggy issues on my 1520.  Stable, but some minor annoyances.
  • First u need to update ur app "update advisor"
  • Can anyone post here a link to download upgrade advisor....

  • Ehhh... Every time i run update advisor it says somethings wrong.. And doesnt do anything after.
  • Update ur app!
  • Got it. Thanks!! Does 8.1 users need to stop insiders to know if update is available?
  • Yup!
  • Like bring it back to 8.1?
  • You are already on w10m... Sent from my Windows 10 PC.
  • not yet for 720, idk what im feeling
  • Dude, don't even think of installing it on L720 I am in Insider build. It's undefinably terrible and a nightmare. Better buy a new WP or Redmi Note 3 in case you want to buy a working phone.
  • i was an insider, hopefully the official makes difference
  • i dont understand how come you still whining about it!! your device is OLD, and has 512MB RAM,  if one doesnt want to spend alot , then try getting L930 or L1520 .164 build has been top notch.
  • LOL :P I will NEVER even in my dreams buy a WP. :-)
  • I wouldn't either
  • your choice, appreciate it
  • So you hang out here... why again? Sorry but you are the MOST baffling person... I cant think of ANY reason I would go to say, an Android forum and post things as to why I would never BUY an Android based phone... I may go there to get ideas, see what is coming up, chat with like minded people... you know, things that HELP the discussion.. its really odd.... and there are a few of you....
  • thank you :)
  • How to download upgrade advisor for windows phone 8.1?
  • Install the app upgrade advisor or if u have update advisor app then u have to update it n then it will show upgrade advisor then check for update it worked for me in lumia 535 india
  • Phone not supported :'(
  • Nothing here yet, nl 1520
  • If my device is running Windows 10 Insider Build? How will I get to the OTA update and firmware update? Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10 on a
    Nokia Lumia 730
  • i also would like to know ?
  • I guess we need to revert first to 8.1, or just switch to Production ring in Insider app.
  • I've switched to the production ring so I will get the updates right?
  • you need to go back to 8.1
  • ****.
  • Just installed on my Icon running 8.1. The update is there and is installing now!
  • Lumia 520 got it....?
  • The update is not officially available for the Lumia 520, you can get the update however, by installing the Windows Insider app and selecting 'Release Preview'. Wait for W10 10586.164 to install, then go back to the Windows Insider app and switch to the Production ring. This removes the handset from being an Insider, but it will continue to receive official updates when they are released.
  • Just saw the list...There's gunna be some disappointed 920 and 1020 owners out there, however those phones are so slow I don't know how people can keep using them (Former 1020 owner who loved the camera, hated the sluggish performance)
  • not yet on 730 india. available through upgrade advisor. waiting for inbuilt phone update to recieve the update
  • Officially releases bugs.. Good job! Posted from Lumia 950xl
  • Its available and ready to be downloaded in India in my Lumia 1520!!! At last great news for windows lovers!
  • May god keep you happy after installing the update, I hope you have a backup phone.
  • Why would he need a backup phone?
  • Seems only available for Lumia 1520, 930, 640, 640XL, 730, 735, 830, 532, 535, 540, 635 1gb, 636 1gb, 638 1gb, 430, 435 and BLU Win HD w510u, BLU win HD LTE x150q, MCJ Madosma Q501. Where is the promise Microsoft which you gave ages ago that you gonna support all Lumia series?
  • First it was all WP8 devices, then became all Lumia's(ditching HTC, Samsung), then all Lumia 8.1 that got denim, then all Lumia that shipped with 8.1, at the end it's Lumia shipped with 8.1 and have 1GB.
  • The upgrade is not available for Lumia 525
  • Guys! What is the new build number?
  • Hi maybe it's a silly question but do I lose the apps I have on phone memory when updating????
  • No, but you'll have to update if any update is available.
  • Just backup everything otherwise you will loose everything
  • ****! This was true? OMG!
  • How can I download the upgrade advisor app ??
  • Actually it's called update advisor and many people can't find it in store so try links or web
  • do we have to roll back from the beta to get official??
  • lumia 735 and 730 are same the only difference is 735 has 4g and wireless charging enabled, still 730 not in the list :-(
  • I think 730 is supported in India.. Not sure..
  • I may be misreading the various docs released by MS, but it sounds like they've removed a bunch of phones from their upgrade list (including mine, the HTC One (M8)) AND phones not on that list basically get the choice of downgrading back to 8.1 or staying in the insider program but not receiving any new builds? Is that correct?
  • There is no app named upgrade advisor in windows store
  • Looking forward!
  • its fake windows 10 will in 2050 for phones .hahaha
  • Arre kehna kya chahte ho??? :p
  • When I'll get update to Lumia 520?
  • Not finding Upgrade Advisor at Store. 640 w/8.1 in the US.
  • View this news in a browser. You will see that windows central has provided the link. Click on it and you will be redirected to the store to download
  • Thank you
  • or use QR code from web page with your WP to open the store
  • I'm so excited!
  • The Upgrade Advisor app requires Windows 10... to see if I can upgrade to Windows 10? How is that helpful?
  • Lol. Sounds about right
  • Same for me...
  • No. I was not able to find the app in the store from my Lumia 640  8.2, but I find it using the QR code. Not a perfect solution...mistery!
  • 520?
  • Ran the Update Advisor on my Verizon Icon and it says my phone is eligible, but 'we are working with your mobile operator to make the upgrade available'.  Boo...
  • Supported Devices ""Lumia 1520, 930, 640, 640XL, 730, 735, 830, 532, 535, 540, 635 1GB, 636 1GB, 638 1GB, 430, 435, BLU Win HD w510u, BLU Win HD LTE x150q, MCJ Madosma Q501""
  • Ran Upgrade Advisor.  Lumia 920 is not supported. The 1st Generation WP8 devices are going to be left behind.
  • Struggled to get the UpdateAdvisor app   Change your IE setting in phone from Desktop Version to Mobile version, the link will prompt store app to open and you can download it
  • So if I am on the insider program with my 1520, I will (at some point) see an update here to get "official" or I never will and should roll back to 8.1?
  • so lumia 520 is excluded! great! time to switch OS!

  • I saw this tip in the other comments...you have to switch your browser to use the Mobile version (not desktop), then follow the link from the WPCentral article and it'll now say 'get the app' and you can download it and use it.  (what a mess...)  I couldn't find it in the app store either...which is ridiculous.
  • "your specific Windows Phone device may or may not be able to download the Windows 10 Mobile update, so download and check the Upgrade Advisor app to see if it is available" -   My Lumia 930 is showing update available through UpdateAdvisor, but not through regular Phone Update...does above statement in the post mean it will never be shown by 930, and can be downloaded through UpdateAdvisor only?

  • Hey guys it shows that that my device (Lumia 630 dual sim) is not supported for the update...
    Does this mean that I won't be getting the update at all? :(

  • As Liam Neeson would be criminal element would say "Good luck". I'll keep 8.1 for ever on my current Lumia device. Release a "true" flagship with WP10 then I'll buy that.
  • I would as well if I hadn't already been on the insier preview. Build .164 is bad compared to 8.1.1.   w10m looks relly nice aesthetically but runs like **** compared to 8.1.1
  • Glad they are rolling the update only to devices that will perform well.
  • But that will make lot of users(loyal) to jump the ship. They were holding on to wp because ms had promised w10m upgrade for all wp8.1 devices. This is kind of disappointing
  • " many older devices are not able to successfully upgrade without an impact on the customer experience" = your x20 lumia is done, because now the same chat apps and same media content requires more processing power somehow
  • How to install? I got 640 running on insider
  • 1520 in India receiving. My friend in Kolkata received.
  • I run windows 10 mobile on my Nokia Lumia 928 in the insider program. it's OK but what i want from Microsoft is for them to stick with Windows 10 Mobile for at least 3 full years. Developers want to work with an OS they KNOW will be around awhile. Microsoft please settle down and stick with Windows 10 Mobile make it great  Do not jump from OS to OS
  • Installing now on my UK 930. Never been on the insider programme so will soon see it copes with an upgrade to an average user.
  • Probably won't even expect the 520 to get it... Firstly it's ancient, secondly it only has 512 MB RAM and a 1 GHz processor, and finally because the Windows 10 Insider Preview has nightmarish performance. Posted via the Windows Central App
  • windows 10 is getting downloaded on mu 630, 730, 535 (India), took screenshots of firmware version on 8.1
  • Dude, can you post the fw version on L630 when you will install the upgrade. I have the L630 and I hope that It gets the FW and SW upgrade, but I'm more excited about the FW update, as I alrready run W10M TP.
  • Downloading update. Damn slow!

  • Does this include firmware for 930 and such?
  • hey, update for my phone downloaded upto 17% and went back again to 7% and got stuck there... does anyone know about this issue

It actually makes the app look pretty sweet. After the update, I was also notified that my phone had a software update after hours of checking. Enjoy the update day everyone!

  • I'm so glad I switched over to an iPhone 6s+. That list shouldn't even exist according to previous Microsoft reports. They said several times that all Windows Phone 8.1 devices would receive it, but now they have that disclaimer that only certain devices will receive it according to the blanket statement of "varies by device manufacturer, device model, country or region, mobile operator or service provider, hardware limitations and other factors. To check if your device is supported and other important information." Then you look at that Feature Depreciation set and why would you want to upgrade at that point? Not only do you lose those features, but you get a buggier experience. It isn't like there's a huge amount of new apps that require it. Microsoft Edge still doesn't have extension support nor does it really feel as stable and smooth as IE 11. Just flabbergasted over Windows 10. Ever since upgrading to it on my Surface Pro 3, have just had problems. Even upgrading my Lumia 920 on the insider just had issues, especially with losing all those handy search functions. Since that Lumia 920 isn't on the list I guess it will always be buggy. Now if they put that was a preliminary list, I'd be a little more understanding. The 920 is still a pretty darn solid phone, the only issue I have is slow loading camera and no focus bypass making it impossible to shoot photos right away (slower than Windows Phone 8). The only remnant I have of Microsoft is OneDrive since it's still the best bang for your buck, until they lower it again from 1 TB to something stupid.

  • Wasn't the update suppose to work for all the devices initially. It all seemed so wonderful and perfect. Even the old devices were invited until the world ended. Now the windows 10 only works with devices that came out a year ago. Cheat, cheated and pinocchio! Thatst's how I feel. Let's buy another phone...or not

  • is this the real official windows 10 or just another apps like Insider?
  • This is official
  • after updating to win 10, mobile battery life is reduced drastically
  • What Phone? Did you reset the phone?
  • Thanks Microsoft for not providing an update for the Icon and doing what needed to be done to get a flagship phone on Verizon. I'm not switching to AT&T to remain on Windows Mobile either (AT&T is terrible IMO). Been on Windows Mobile since the Samsung Focus, but this is the end. Not a big fan of Android, but I'm dumping Windows Mobile when the G5 comes out. All of the Microsoft services are available on Android anyhow, so the transition will be easy. 
  • Lumia 930 in South Africa is now busy downloading Win10 upgrade from 8.1 after running update advisor.
  • So HTC and MS lied about the HTC One M8 getting the upgrade.  More than meets minimum specs.  No isssues on my preview.  A flagship phone that Windows won't support because it is on Verizon. MS let me down far too many times.  I refuse to switch carriers just for a phone.  Looks like Apple wins.
  • Hi, why not using insider? 
  • Finally it's released but has so many issues!!!  
  • Did anyone on AT&T network get the windows 10 moble upgrade yet? I have a nokia lumia 1520 and i know its eligible for the windows 10 upgrade, but havent heard anything from AT&T at all in regards to it. I have the upgrade advisor app and whenever I run it, it says its working with my carrier to get it...
  • anyone can tell me how to upgrade lumia1320 into window 10
  • I always thought this would be a new start for windows phone. :(
