I checked the specs and I see that it's a wp8 phone, which should be upgrade-able to 8.1. From there, go through all the mandatory updates. If you want the phone on 10, it should first have the Cyan update. If you aren't getting the update normally, I would suggest downloading the preview for developers app and using that to download the cyan update. After that's been done, look for the windows insider app and select the production ring so you can get to the latest (safest) build..

Idk if all of this will work on your phone, but I guess it's worth a shot

Release would get him the current, stable build of 10586.164 which is the Threshold final version (matches PC not on Insider). After getting Release, then take it to the Production ring which effectively un-enrolls the device from Insider.

Production does not show in Insider until after you enter and accept update from a higher ring. When looking at Insider, the ring Options are showing most experimental to most stable.

Fast

Slow

Release

Production

I'd even go so far as getting Release, going Production (to un-enroll) and then resetting the device. The reset helps the build "settle in" and then remove Insider if it downloads again. No sense really in letting his curiosity lead him into downloading higher rings. Likely 10586.164 is the best version for the Ascend to stay at.

Good luck.

Ok so I tried the preview for developers app, but it says that the phone still needs an update before I can do anything else...I then went to the settings/check for phone update and it says that the phone is up to date??

Can we get a screenshot of that message? My memory of dev preview is kind of fuzzy seems like forever ago. Would also help if you can provide your OS version (settings> about) and the header (title - written in big letters) within your extras & info app

Edit: do not post a screenshot with IMEI info
