Windows 10 phone

I have a Samsung ATIV S Neo which we are all pretty sure will never get Windows 10.

Microsoft does not make a Sprint compatible Windows 10 phone, per say.  So that option is out.

I can't change carries for one reason or another.

So in an effort to torture myself I did a chat with the Microsoft support people and they had a suggestion. I would like an opinion if it is doable before I try.  Thanks in advance.

Ok basically they seemed to think that Sprint and Verizon use the same technology, is this true?

Microsoft sells a Nokia Lumia 735 for Verizon on their website.  This is a Windows 8.1 phone but it can be upgraded to Window 10.  It also has Hello and can support wallet, or so I was told.  After the upgrade of course.

So basically the Microsoft support persons suggestion is that I purchase the no contract phone from their site, it is $200.  Then take it to Sprint and have them move it to the Sprint network.  Can they do that?  Will it work?

Again, thanks for any responses.

do you really want to add trolling/harassment to the site strikes?

In other words they don't offer much!

Re: Windows 10 phone

Jeffrey, that is a short list of devices and obviously more devices that what appears on the list are currently operating on the Sprint Network.  What is the working definition of a "supported device" and is that different than an "approved device"?

Re: Windows 10 phone

if youre looking for info on a specific device you might as well come out and just say what it is so they can either say yes or no to it.
