Left behind with no Windows 10 Mobile update? Microsoft extends trade-in olive-branch offer
No one likes getting left behind the the tide of progress, but that’s exactly what happened for a large number of Windows Phone users last month as Microsoft finally released its Windows 10 Mobile updates for existing smartphones. Despite the large number of models supported over the course of the prior year through the company’s Insider testing program, the public W10M update only delivered updates for a fraction of those handsets – and Microsoft would soon confirm that there was no second wave of updates coming to bring Windows 10 Mobile to additional handsets. What are you supposed to do if you’re stuck with an older phone that didn’t make the W10M update list? Microsoft would love to convince you to upgrade to a modern designed-for-Windows-10 handset, and it’s introducing a trade-in offer to help with just that.
If you’ve got a Lumia 920, Lumia 925, or Lumia 1020 in good working condition, Microsoft will give you $150 to applied to the purchase of a new Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL.
The deal runs from today through the end of June, so you’ve got some time to consider Microsoft’s offer. There is one more pressing restriction, though, with the trade-in deal only open to Lumia users in the US and Canada. And like we said, your trade-in phone needs to be in good shape, still capable of holding a charge and not having borne the brunt of any serious damage.
Anyone planning to take Microsoft up on this promotion?
