    Same here. I've been checking my updates since the news came out as well. I thought it was just me.

    I think that's a huge leap...what does Blu's website say? Any asterisk's saying the Win 10 upgrade is only for US? (I can't find any.) Maybe the US folks are the testers for the rest ... who knows. Seems like WM 10 is close...I'd wait and see before jumping off the cliff.

    It is planned to get the Windows 10 upgrade, when it's released. But none of the Blu's received the insider update. No rings have it. It's not even on the build feed (which is odd) for public. So you're not in the dark or alone. We're all waiting, impatiently or patiently, take your pick.

    No Blu phones are running Windows 10 through insider builds past... June or prior when they had that mix up of 10 being pushed on the rings regardless of device.

    I'm starting to believe that there will be at least one, maybe several more Insider releases before we ever see this one on these phones. It's pretty much the weekend now and still no Windows 10.

    Maybe, but it's hard to say really, in the absence of hard info from MICROSOFT/BLU. Still, there does seem to be some signs of progress; with the .122 build, W10 mobile appears to be approaching stability and proper functioning. I think a release to WP 8.1 devices is close, but when exactly for the BLU phones, I don't know.

    I have tagged Gabe describing problems getting Win 10 for my W510U model. Tried recovery via WRDT tool. Insider app would often say it couldn't enroll as the phone was already busy checking for updates; other times it would give an error. Eventually it did seem to enroll - I got a notice and the phone said it was going to reboot (and it did)... but no Win 10 update has appeared yet.

    At least I'm not alone. ;)

    I'm in Insider Release Preview ring as well. Not sure but I think either is the same. No Windows 10 Mobile available in any ring for BLU.

    The updates, it automatically forces a check when you select a ring. When you're on the confirmation screen, wait approx 10-15 seconds before hitting confirm. That will give Windows Update time to check for updates then go from there. If that doesn't work, close the app, open Task Switcher and close it, open it up, and do the same thing, waiting like 10-15 seconds. One time I had done it too quick and it was hanging on the updates. I promise though, if you wait 10-15 seconds before confirming, it'll work.

    As promised I reset the phone, enrolled it, and tried both rings. Nothing. I posted on twitter, with a screenshot of what was said, and asked why we were lied to about Blu being added to the Insider Preview. =/ Not too happy right now.

    Guys! It's Windows Insider Program that means UPDATE is rolled out world wide(Also the build is released in PREVIEW release so it's stable,chances of bricking the device not that high).Surely there is some problem on MS side and i think when the update is released it will be available to EVERYONE(Not even X150Q were able to upgrade)

    Haha, ya. I've been kinda looking around the last couple days. Although someone from the Microsoft forum directly hinted to me that there was still a way to get around installing to unsupported devices I haven't found a way that seems to still work.
    Now that the MDRT supports the phone I'd be eager to try.
    I'm sure that since Gabe announced this that there is a working upgrade, I'm assuming that issues must lie in how it can be safely delivered to the correct phones? Maybe they need to deliver a firmware upgrade first? Maybe the upgrade path can't differentiate between different models Maybe some models are locked and since they are technically sold by the carrier they need carrier approval? Anyways. Whatever the reason I hope it is resolved soon.

    Could this be the issue. On the insider page listing supported phones (Blu not yet listed) it states that "Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview currently works with the following phonesas long as they have at least 8 GB of storage, Windows Phone 8.1 was already installed on the phone at the time of purchase, and the version number is 8.10.14219.341 or earlier".
    My phone states that the OS version is "8.10.15137.148". Perhaps using the WDRT to reset the phone to an earlier version of Windows 8.1 will resolve the issue.
    Will try it later when I have time.

    That sounds promising... And WDRT does restore to an earlier version than current official...

    I'll give it a go since I don't have any data to loose. Just have to make sure I don't get any OTA. LOL.

    .

    WDRT gives you 8.10.14226.359...

    I've denied a download for update... Gone in the store and canceled a bunch of App updates as well.

    Installing Insider...

    Selecting Release Preview... Denied due to pending update. Initiating Soft Reset to forget that an update is waiting. That doesn't work.

    The update is the critical patch for random reboot. NOT the Update 2 upgrade. Applying patch...


    The phone reboots and is searching for updates automatically. Seems to be no stopping it. I had a server error though and that halted the discovery.

    Even with the random reboot patch the OS is still 14226.359.

    No Insider love yet.

    Reboot...

    Select Release Preview.

    No update found... Not even the one to move to 8.1 Update 2. Looks like Insider request is blocking the normal OTA, but I also can't move to 10.


    I'm going to park here (on 8.1 Update 1) and await further developments.

    I tried all the same things yesterday, my HD W510u is also on 8.10.14226.359 which is newer than 8.10.14219.341 by build number. Also no 10 here.
    The HD LTE updated right through to 8.1 Update 2, so Insider didn't stop that one.

    There is still no word on Blu receiving any updates pertaining to Windows 10 Mobile. Vodafone made a comment about Windows 10 Mobile being released today, but I'm highly skeptical as releases are generally done on a Tuesday. I tried this weekend on and off to get W10M on my Blu to no avail. Let's see what information is released today.

    Just wondering...?
    Has Microsoft backtracked on upgrading non Lumia phones to Windows 10 and just hasn't admitted it?
    The "Support Engineers" in their forum sure seem to point that way without coming right out and admitting it.

    That web page specifically states that only phones that run Lumia Demin may upgrade!

    FAQ - Will Windows 10 update be available for my Lumia phone? - Microsoft - USA

    You can't use a support page for Lumia phones to point as evidence that a Blu phone (ie, not a Lumia) will or won't be upgraded to WM10...that linked page is specifically discussing Lumia phones...nothing to do with Blu.

    I believe Gabe's twitter...but we simply aren't seeing it...we will eventually.

    Why not? If you don't understand that our phones are made by Blu, and aren't Lumia's...and therefore never get the 'color' firmware updates, that they're only for Lumia's...then I can't help you.

    In addition, listening to low level MS support staff is about as reliable as going to your carrier's physical store and asking them...they're the last to know.

    You're attempting to push a panic button...feel free...those who understand the differences understand your link is irrelevant to a Blu phone.
