    A few years ago I got the Lumia 710 and couldn't wait to get Windows Phone 7.8. Sadly, this phone never received that update from my phone carrier. To resolve this, I got the Lumia 810 which came with Windows Phone 8 but my problems would continue when this phone would not be receiving Windows Phone 8.1. Now I have the Lumia 925. This phone recently got 8.1 but I had finally given in a long time ago to getting the Preview for Developers to get 8.1 quicker.

    Now with Windows 10 coming in the future I wanted to know if Windows 10 for phones would eventually go from the Windows Insider program to Preview for developers. I would rather not use the Insider program on the phone I use everyday due to it not being finished software and probably containing bugs. Hopefully it will be available through the developer preview in the future! Does anyone have any information on this?

    Thanks in advance!

    We really don't know at this point in the game if Insider will turn into Preview. Stay tuned.

    That said; I gather you are on T-MoUS? It bodes well that 925 is the only T-Mo Windows Phone to get Denim, but yes you will be held hostage to the carrier's decision of whether they will pass an OTA for 10.

    It shoukd work that way once the technical preview program is done and final OS is announced.
    But official statements can only come after the unveiling of the finished W10 for phones probably at BUILD 2015.

    Does a country variant unlocked phone has more chance of receiving Windows 10 than a branded or carrier phone? For instance on a Lumia 920?

    If u don't plan to jump on pfd or Insider then yes Country unlocked variants are more likely to receive it than carrier locked.

    I feel your pain. I want a WP flagship but who knows when that will drop. Meanwhile if I go the HTC One M8 for Windows route I'm hooking up with another two year contract with Verizon who is NOTORIOUS for slow walking updates and settling for hardware that is already out of date a bit. Life is cruel.

    I'm confident it will. I hope Microsoft haven't neglected preview for developers. I'm sure it will arrive when it has finished being tested and is in RTM.
