    excerpt from above link :

    Q: I’m currently using a Windows 10 Insider build on my device, but it is not on the list of devices that will receive a formal Windows 10 update. What should I expect in the future?
    A: If you already have the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build on your device, you may keep using your device in an unsupported state. We will not be offering build updates beyond the Current Branch build 10586. At some point in the future these devices will also stop receiving updates to the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build.

    In order to recover the devices back to a supported build of Windows Phone 8.1, you may use the Windows Device Recovery Tool. There are more details on the use of the Windows Device Recovery Tool within this forum post.

    That's not nice at all.
    I might have to end up buying a "supported" device.

    So all phones that have been running Windows 10 Insider and aren't in the following list, now need to flash them back to Windows 8.1 again in order to keep being supported? That sucks, talk about leaving people high and dry.

    Lumia 435
    Lumia 532
    Lumia 535
    Lumia 540
    Lumia 550
    Lumia 635 (1GB)
    Lumia 636 (1GB)
    Lumia 638 (1GB)
    Lumia 640
    Lumia 640 XL
    Lumia 650
    Lumia 730
    Lumia 735
    Lumia 830

    Yeah, I think suckered is appropriate, along with deceived.

    In November 2014 they said all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices would be eligible to upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile when it was released . This led people to buy Windows 8 phones they wouldn't have otherwise because what this meant was there was no need to hold off until Windows 10 was released before buying a new phone. However now it has become apparent that this was a bait and switch. It's worth also bearing in mind that quite a few devices that are not eligible for Windows 10 Mobile were still being sold until recently. For example, I know the 630 and 635 (512MB) were definitely still being sold less than a year ago and as these devices are running Windows 10 Insider fine, I can only presume greed is the reason behind doing what they've done.

    As per the official Lumia Twitter account in November 2014:

    "There will be Windows 10 upgrades for all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices And we will release new Windows 10 models in the future!"

    "We plan to upgrade all Windows Phone 8 devices to Windows 10 in the future "

    Here's also an Internet Archive snapshot taken of the Microsoft Store dated 7 September 2015 (8 August 2015 also says the same).

    https://web.archive.org/web/20150907...ctID.306945400

    Here the store is listing a Lumia 635 (512MB) and clearly stating "Free upgrade to Windows 10 when available".

    And straight from 'Executive Vice President of the Windows and Devices Group' Terry Myerson's mouth.

    "...and, we will also be making available free upgrades of Windows 10 to all devices running Windows Phone 8.1"

    I hope it makes the list next wave, I have the 635 (512MB) and it runs the preview really good. I wonder how long the insider preview will work before I have to get another one if they don't support it.

    Microsoft confirms that 512MB Windows Phone devices will not get Windows 10 Mobile

    According to the official source of yesterday's Windows 10 Mobile launch, there are no waves. This is it.
