    I brought opted for a Nokia Lumia 640 from Virgin Media because it was cheap and because they were advertising it as having a free upgrade to Windows 10 Phone.

    Everytime I read the news, it seems that Microsoft is having more and more problems, and fewer and fewer phones are going to get the upgrade.

    Has anybody heard anything encouraging about when the upgrade will come through for the Lumia 640, or does it look like Microsoft will drop it?

    I got a 640 as a back up phone it was on 8.1.
    Just installed Upgrade Advisor app and it upgraded to W10.

    With Virgin Media?

    If I upgrade manually no warranty cover. It needs to be their official release.

    When you're on a contract you're only supposed to use the version from the contract provider as they sometimes sign or tweak it.
