    HI All,

    Can someone please tell me how to download Windows 10 on my new phone? I am using the windows upgrade and it tells me my phone is not eligible for Windows 10 upgrade?

    Also, having a problem with sending a picture in a text message? I get an error message can't send media content, try again? My provider is Con. Cell. They gave me their settings, but, still does not work. Does someone know the correct Sim settings for this phone?

    If I can't get this phone updated and able to send a picture text, I am going to return it back to Amazon.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    well, as the app says, your phone is not going to be able to upgrade to windows 10. still, if you really want windows 10 so bad, I would say you join the insiders program, and then get your phone updated to 10.
    but lemme tell you, it wont be smooth for your device as it is old and not ideal for windows 10.
    and about the sim settings, I am sorry, I don't think I can help you with that. sorry. :(

    The M8 is not eliglible for the Insiders program. OP would have to modify his registry to get W10

    I've updated 2 or 3 M8s to Windows 10 via Insider Preview. It's probably the best WP8-era phone running Windows 10 since it has the newest silicon prior to the 950 series. It will not get the official updates but it sure does get 10.

    The registry edits you're referring to were for the Icon/930 and the Samsung Ativ SE because they were never in the Insider Preview program.

    XDA has a thread about that phone. I originally had it on Win 10 insider and then lost it. Complained bitterly as it is a better WM10 device than the 1520.

    If it only had a decent camera, that device would still be my daily driver.

    The M8 was once eliglible for the Insiders Program but not anymore. You can now edit the registry of ALL Windows phones (in the beginning it was only possible with Lumias). Check the XDA threads

    The M8 is not eligible for 1607 but it's still available for 1511. As for registry editors, Lumias were probably the last to the party. My WP7 LG Quantum had one onboard and the Focus and Venue Pro had them available too. Interop unlocks were a breeze before the Lumias showed up with their locked bootloaders.
