      I reached out to T-Mobile to check on the status of the Lumia 640’s update today. T-Mo said that they don’t have any news to share at the moment.

      Meanwhile the ATT Go phone version that was sold for $29 off contract has received it’s official Windows 10 update, and two consecutive updates since the OS update. T-Mobile would rather sell you a new phone than support the one you have.
