T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S2 getting Jelly Bean update
Good news for owners of the Samsung Galaxy S2 on T-Mobile USA -- your update to Jelly Bean is due to start rolling out today. The update weighs a hefty 756MB and is available through Samsung's Kies software utility, bringing the phone up to Android 4.1.2.
In addition to new TouchWiz bits, T-Mo S2 owners can look forward to smoother performance thanks to the "Project Butter" performance enhancements, Google Now predictive search capabilities and support for offline voice recognition. To see if your update is ready, fire up Kies on a PC or Mac, and connect your Galaxy S2.

I could have sworn though it was stated by Samsung last year that the S2 wouldn't get updates past 4.0 because of "hardware limitations"..
Whenever my Samsung Droid Charge has gotten an update on Verizon it's always been OTA.
