    The thread name is: Windows 10 to be free upgrade for first year for users of (Win 7, 8, 8.1) AND WINDOWS PHONE 8.1. So Windows 10 for phone is free for 1 year and we must buy the OS when the one year offer expired? What!? I don't want to pay for the update. Please be free for phone.

    Do not worry you don't need to pay for it on your phone. Please read the article again and not only the header.

    He indeed is but that happens with people who only read the header.
    For PC and tablets on windows 7, 8 and 8.1 the update will be free if you update within the first year of the official release.

    i don't think so. what i understand is, u can get the upgrade (from win 7, 8.1 or phone) to win 10 is free.
    then the updates in 1st year is free. then after, the updates are chargeable on yearly basis.
    this is because, MSFT has planned not to launch any further win version. win 10 shall be the last of it. after that, there will be updates only.

    Nope, here quote from the WP central article.
    "Microsoft announced that customers running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 will all be eligible for free upgrades to Windows 10. Free upgrades will be available to users running those systems for the first year of Windows 10, and users will get updates for the supported lifetime of their device."

    Key word "gets update for lifetime of supported devices and not just the first year"

    Here's the thing: update your PC and Phone before one year after the release, and you will be happy forever with your Free Windows 10 copy and will receive updates and new features normally.
