    Hi, I've read in some forums that you can use a sim card that already rolled out the 10.2 update (like Rogers) to trick your phone into downloading the update if it's still not available in your country, I have a few questions:

    I never tried to do it cause others say that there may be trouble on the radio frequencies that you will download if you use a different carrier that is far off in your own region. Like examply in my case, I live in Asia, but I want to use my aunt's Rogers Canadian sim card, so the Canadian sim may download the 10.2 update that is not meant for my region.

    Is that true? Can anyone prove this?

    And if so, what's stopping us from just removing a sim card on the phone and just do it via wifi. I mean the phone doesn't detect any sim so it won't limit itself within the boundaries of your region-based sim.

    And must the sim card be activated? As my aunt's sim is a prepaid sim card so I doubt its roaming is activated here in the Philippines. So can I use that sim card even if it doesn't have any frequencies?

    I'm sorry for asking, but these are just my concerns before doing the "use other network's/countries' sim card to get the update"

    I believe this is true. You can use your rogers sim to trick your phone into downloading.
