    I wondered the same about a Lumia 520, then found that if it can be done at all, it can only be done with difficulty, and little certainty of success. If I recall right, it requires bootloader unlocking, and changing the phone's identity to fool the update server into thinking that it qualifies for a W10 upgrade. It's probably a breach of the TOS, and from what I've read, not worth bothering with.

    Edit. I've just come across Conan143's magnificent Guide about this sort of thing:

    You can look for methods, but you may not be happy with the result... It's better to look for a Lumia 640 or 550 for sale used.
