    I currently use a WM 8.1 Nokia and I was going to buy a WM10 phone but I read where support will be ending at the end of 2019. Many features (Cortana) and apps (Facebook, Twitter) don't work on my WM 8.1. Will they work if I upgrade to WM10 or will it be more of the same? I don't want to go to Android or iPhone.

    W10M will be more of the same, just a step or two behind. You'll soon be where you are now with WM8.1. And in some areas they're the same as far as support.

    I don't want to go to Android or iPhone.
    It's either this or feature phone. Take your pick.

    You are better off moving to Android at this point.

    Both versions are dead! it is better to move to the andriod platform. my windows 10 Mobile finally came to an end by the end of December 2019.
    Now there is no Facebook, WhatsApp, Microsoft store. it has reached the end of service life.
    you better move to Android.

    Not quite true. I just received (the last?) OS update 2 days ago.
    The Microsoft store is still up and I am still downloading stuff from it, even as of this morning.

    Don't care about Facebook so this thing still works fine for me. Much more enjoyable than any of the droids I have.

    For all its warts, and there are too many to mention, it still has one feature that's head and shoulders above the rest and that's Continuum - particularly the wireless variety. From my personal experience, only Huawei's Easy Projection works in wireless desktop mode but it is a lagfest and not really usable.

    Other than that, WM10 is good for calls, text and Outlook.
