    I went ahead and bought a refurbished Lumia 1520 for $40 well, just because. :D However, if it does not have Windows 10 Mobile already installed when I receive it, what must I do to upgrade it please?

    I know that the Windows Insider path is dead but, what about WDRT? Thanks.

    Believe you have to go into the Store and search for the "Upgrade Advisor" app, d/l, open, then select Windows 10 Upgrade. Needed to do same on my L830 working like a charm.

    Thanks, I will give it a try when I receive the phone next week. I would like to give the XL a swing but, it is not worth $200 anymore, since the OS is essentially dead. For $40 though, the 1520 is worth messing around with.

    Well, I have it up and running. Now, what can I possibly do with it, besides mess around with it here and there? :D

    My 1520 just broke. I only use it as a hot spot but I do use it sometimes so I want W10. Were you able to get W10 onto it? I'm worried if I buy a W8 1520, i won't be able to get it to W10.

    I was able to get my 1520 to 10 Mobile using the upgrade advisor. (Sure wish they had not dumped 8.1 support, that was stupid fast on the 1520.) After that, I changed the settings in the registry and got the rest of the updates. You will need to reset the phone after that and set it up as new or you may have issues.

    The 1520 felt real good in the hand but, the OS is dead so it would not even connect to my cars bluetooth, oh well, it is still fun to play around with. I recommend making sure whatever phone you get, that it is unlocked and if not, request an unlock to whatever phone service it was tied too. :)
