Microsoft to Release Windows 10 Mobile Upgrade to Select Lumia Devices

Earlier today, Microsoft announced that they are ready to roll out an update for devices running on Windows Phone 8.1. The new update will now allow users to enjoy the features that come with the latest Microsoft mobile OS, Windows 10 Mobile.

According to their announcement, Microsoft is "focused on delivering a high-quality experience" for their customers. Because of this, Microsoft warns that not all device running Windows Phone 8.1 OS is upgradeable to Windows 10 Mobile. The devices that support the latest upgrade include the following:

  • Lumia 430
  • Lumia 435
  • Lumia 532
  • Lumia 535
  • Lumia 540
  • Lumia 635 (1GB)
  • Lumia 636 (1GB)
  • Lumia 638 (1GB)
  • Lumia 640
  • Lumia 640 XL
  • Lumia 730
  • Lumia 735
  • Lumia 830
  • Lumia 930
  • Lumia 1520
  • BLU Win HD w510u
  • BLU Win HD LTE x150q
  • MCJ Madosma Q501
Along with their announcement of the Windows 10 Mobile update, Microsoft has also announced a new Update Advisor app which helps users check whether or not an update is already available for their device. At the same time, the app helps clear space from your device's internal storage to make way for the Windows 10 Mobile update. 

T-Mobile subscribers that have a Windows phone may now upgrade their Lumia 640 and Lumia 435. While the Lumia 635 is included on the list, it isn't available to the T-Mobile version which has 512MB of RAM instead of 1GB of RAM. The carrier still hasn't announced when the update for Windows 10 Mobile will be pushed to compatible devices so it's best to keep watch for any news. They have confirmed that they are already working on the update for the Lumia 640, however.

  1. ATT LUMIA 640 is still not yet for Win 10. Just download the app and it says need to wait for carrier to push the update.

  2. Wish they included the 630 sold by Cricket, the 1320 and the 520/521.

    I can't wait for Continuum.

  3. I'm with Cricket, and the Lumia 640 still isn't ready for update there either. Just had a very unsuccessful call to customer service. The rep had no idea what was going on. Hope it becomes available soon, though.

    1. just spoke to a cricket rep and got this bulls**t answer.....
      "Armando P: I understand, now let me tell you that Cricket does not support the Software updated
      Armando P: In that case I will suggest you to call to Microsoft Support 800-936-4900 so they can guide you through the steps to get it done"

  4. My Blu Win HD was updated but my ATT Lumia 640 is still waiting.

  5. The Win10 Phone upgrade file is 1.4GB+ and it needs some flash space.
    Better start cleaning out your files to make room.

  6. I called T-Mobile. The reps had no idea about anything to do with any Windows Phones. They told me to check the support page online for my phone. Of course there is nothing on the page. I tried the T-Mobile online chat support and had a rep tell me that me that her department has no record of T-Mobile prepping an update for the Lumia 640. In a last ditch effort I e-mailed Microsoft's mobile device support team. They gave me a cookie cutter answer about how phones would receive updates after testing, but they provided no update window at all.

    1. Just install the windows insider app and get Windows 10 on your 640. It really isn't any more difficult than installing an update through your carrier.

  7. Experts, exactly what are the benefits/features of Windows 10 Mobile over Windows Phone 8.1? Thanks for your advice!
