As owners of the HTC Sensation 4G are gleefully receiving their OTA update of Ice Cream Sandwich, which has been available since May 16, we expect to hear the same collective sigh of relief from HTC Amaze 4G owners pretty soon. It seems we’re not that far off the mark when we said that ICS upgrade for the phone would come not too long after it lands on HTC Sensation 4G.

As can be seen from the updated support page for HTC Amaze 4G on T-Mobile’s website, the carrier is ready to roll out ICS for HTC Amaze 4G starting May 21. Since it’s an OTA update, all you have to do is check your phone for an update notification on the due date. You can also request the update via HTC software updates menu and tap “Check Now”.

The update will bring the following to your HTC Amaze 4G:

  • Android 4.0.3 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • Sense 3.6
  • System bar enhancements to easily view recent apps.
  • Re-sizeable widgets
  • Lock screen actions including pull down notifications and adjust volume while device is locked.
  • Data usage controls.
  • Face Unlock
  • Home screen folders
  • Improved battery life

With three days away from the OTA update for the HTC Amaze 4G, you could use the remaining time to say goodbye to the good old Gingerbread. Enjoy your ICS treat soon.

    It doesn’t give the option to write in another languaje but English, it killed all my contacts, it does not come with the links highlighted on the e-mail, I cannot go to the internet from my email and if I copy and paste the link it send me to google and it says wrong page, I cannot not post anything on my friends facebook wall. it sucks doesnot work. I don’t have any G’s it killed my phone in another words any time I update the phone I have to get a new one, I have only 8 months with it and now is going to he my third is sad.

    I got HTC Amaze 4G and the phone works like a charm.But my only concern is to root the ICS ROM so that i can have access to the system as an admin.Please help me on topics such as rooting and s-off.I am familiar with the so called wire trick.But am a little afraid to test it on my new phone.So anyone with any alternative methods do let me know.HTC amaze is a very good phone.The two things that are not good on the phone are its camera and battery life.
