    Pretty sure they'll be available indefinitely, the issue is for how long we'll see new updates.

    I guess my Nokia 520 will hold up until 2023, when 8.1 support will end, according to that fact sheet! Maybe I should pick up a couple of spares on eBay, I've seen them for as low as $20.00.

    Uhh, 2023 is the lifecycle for desktop Windows 8.1, not Windows Phone 8.1.
    Mid-2017 is when the mainstream support of Windows PHONE 8.1 is slated to end I believe.

    But wait, that can't stop you from continuing to use your Lumia into the future. I still use devices long past their prime. (Palm Pre 2, Palm Treo 650...)

    Bar serious Windows Phone 8.1 issues and hardware wear like on the battery, you'll be able to use your Lumia indefinitely.
    Also worth noting is that you may want to check out a Lumia 635 or 640 if you want. They aren't too expensive either these days, especially the former.
