T-Mobile and 10.2.1(Updated)
So i purchased an unlocked Z10 from this site earlier this year. The phone is originally from Rogers Cellular, again it was unlocked when i purchased it. I had AT&T and i recently switched over to T-Mobile. After i heard about Rogers already releasing the 10.2 update i tried messing with the settings. I switched my phones T-Mobile APN to a Rogers APN and then i switched my "Network Selection Mode" to Manual, when it was in automatic it would just stay on T-Mobile's network. So as i switched it to Manual and it began to scan for networks i quickly went to Software Updates, and viola!! The 10.2 update showed up.
The APN i used from Rodgers is shown in the photo. AGAIN, my phone was UNLOCKED from Rogers. So this trick may not work for everyone. But it's worth a shot! Good Luck.
Also i did have both the Mobile and Data services on, and i was on a Wi-Fi network. The Wi-Fi network allowed me to check for the update. While the system is scanning for new available networks the data services is disabled for the time being.

Haha, this is kinda cool. So it looks like you don't even need a SIM card, just need to switch up the APNs.

Some people with unlocked, ex-Rogers phones who shifted over to t-mo, got pushed wifi-calling apps before the official T-Mo release. (With some form of the MR). Not clear why. Also recall those who were trying to get wifi-calling to work on leaked 10.2, could, but they needed to load a different radio.If Evolution is Outlawed, only Outlaws will Evolve.

10.2 in USA T-Mobile
People who loaded leaked 10.2 versions and wanted wifi calling to work could load a different radio. So, if it worked on your leaked version and you do a complete upgrade (not an official t-mo) it probably will not work. I believe the radio would be over written.
And I don't think it was pushed by RIM, more likely Rogers or another Canadian carrier.

thanks for the tip, and i'm jealous that you were able to get it to work.
i have an unlocked t-mobile z10 (t-mobile sent me the unlock code earlier this month when i went on travel) and i tried to see if i could get your method to work using my now unlocked tmo z10 with my tmo sim card and...no joy.
i guess i could just update the leaked 10.2 version i'm running by getting another leak installed...

So I received my Rogers z10 today in the mail and I was able to download 10.2 as well.
I am in Dallas(for the record) and I'm a Tmobile subscriber.
I did not have to mess with the APN settings, however, all I did was put in my Tmobile sim card, unlock the phone and check for OS update and there it was... 10.2.

I'm going to put my French and Singapore SIMs in to see if I'm offered the update. Not sure I'll do it though, because Wifi calling is essential to me.

Didn't work. With my Orange SIM in and being on ATT's network, no update offered. I was also on wifi too, since I was getting no data connection to ATT (no money left on my Orange FR SIM). Maybe that's the problem.

In fact, since I bought the thing locked, when I first unlocked it, it wouldn't even read my sim(since it wasn't activated). It wasn't until I called Tmobile and activated the sim, that I was able to find the update and download it.
I'm just glad I got it.

Also, from what I have read, the Rogers 10.2 kills wifi-calling on T-Mo.If Evolution is Outlawed, only Outlaws will Evolve.
