    you can download store apps like 1mobile or amazon install that and use that to search for apks. or download and install snap which is a native bb10 client to download and install apks on the play store.

    But to load APKs with the 10.2.1 leak you just put it on your phone and open it on the phone. You'll be prompt to install it.

    Just download the apks from amazon store. Open the file manager. Go to file location. And install it.

    FYI, you need, specifically, 10.2.1.1055 or higher (but not 10.2.1.1057, that OS is deliberately broken). Since we don't have any OSs higher than 10.2.1.1055, you'll have to install that specific one.

    Yes. Software release 10.2.1.176 is the same as OS 10.2.1.1055.

    Goodereader.com also has an app for their app store. There's a thread in the forum with the link, the Android app thread. Also, you can search for Droid, which gives access to the Google app store. You have to sideload Droid. Just search the forums for it.

    Yes, it will still work. Make sure you backup and follow the instructions on installing leaks carefully.

    I may not recall correctly, but I think T-mobile may be different since they have something called wifi-calling (I don't even know what it is) and it may be adversely affected by installing the Leak or even other carriers' just 10.2 OS. Again, this is just from reading and no experience whatsoever.
