    So I own a Lumia 630 and was living a happy life before Windows 10 Mobile Technical Preview happened. I installed it on October 2015 and even though it lagged I was expecting upgrades to fix everything. Then in March I read about the fact that MS has ditched the 630 from the list of Technical Preview supported phones. I decided to roll back to 8.1, but the software didn't work at all. I was stuck with a slow, laggy OS that wasn't supported anymore. Last week I decided to do a hard reset and my phone was working better albeit with frequent crashes. And then, all of a sudden, yesterday I got a notification to restart my phone to update it. The build number was 10586.0.420( the latest) and after installing it, my phone has got a new lease of life. But why on earth did I receive the update, even though my phone is unsupported? I'm just curious to know.

    Congrats! you're one of the few. I have read that some with unsupported devices were somehow getting the w10 updates.

    Think they were using 920/925 phones. This could be 1 of 2 things:

    1. unsupported devices will get the update at some point

    2. some phone owners are just lucky

    Maybe it's the hours I spent arguing why Windows Phone is better. The update gods might have heard me.😛

    I tried to, but it always stops downloading due to a server error. I tried everything they asked me to but to no avail and I gave up.

    I think you may be still in the insider release preview ring so you got the update

    Windows 10 Mobile, i don't remember the exact version number. But the updates had stopped since December.. So this came as a surprise.

    I guess it fixed itself. Also some 1 GB 630s are supported I think.
