As the Windows 10 Mobile release inches closer and closer, Microsoft has now updated its software update page for Windows Phone to include Windows 10.

The page, which typically helped Lumia users to know the status of their updates (and previously whether it was in testing, waiting for dispatch etc) has now been updated to include instructions for Lumia devices running Windows 10 Mobile.

In addition to that, Microsoft’s Windows Phone help page is now full of FAQs about Windows 10 (we’re going with Microsoft’s branding here from now on) for the casual user.

As the roll out – rumoured to be starting next week and currently being shipped out to carriers for staging – inches ever closer, Windows Phone users should be excited about the new functionality enabled by Microsoft.

To reiterate, the first few devices that Microsoft has confirmed will get Windows 10 are the Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532, Lumia 535, Lumia 540, Lumia 635 (1 GB RAM), Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, and Lumia 930.

Can I have a hope for it. I really wanted Windows 10 in my device:(
This may be help (Why lumia 730 is not in the first list of Windows 10 update? ) and (Supported phones for Windows Insider Preview - Microsoft Windows) shows all the Lumia devices that are supported on the current Insider Preview.

Windows 10 for Lumia 730 may arrive at a later date.

In the meantime, you may want to consider expanding storage, as Windows 10 Mobile requires at least 1.5GB space for upgrade.

Well these list of supported models my add in the feature, if you will check their Windows 10 Mobile requirements at least 512 MB above are supported for the device.

All testimonies are consistent that Microsoft surely add more in the upcoming events.

Unfortunately where I live, my old service (Cricket) doesn't have service so I had to move to Verizon (the only cell phone service that works here - that's what happens when you move in the mountains). Verizon at the time didn't have cheap Windows phones so I don't have one to worry about. I still have my Lumia 635 (from Cricket) so I will update it. Eventually I need to sell this thing since I can't use it. Don't want this great phone to go to waste.

On a side note, I was using Windows 10 Mobile Preview. It was great. Better than 8. The fact that wallpaper could be seen fully instead of on tiles was a great addition. Made the home screen very nice looking. Maybe someday I can get a Windows Phone from Verizon. They have cheaper models now after all. Get another 635 if they have them.

Lumia 730 is on the official list that receives W10M. Realistically, L730 & 735 are similar but differences lie in CPU/SoC and Qi charging only. L730 uses Qualcomm SD400 8226 instead of SD400 8926.
