According to AusDroid, the Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich update is being rolled out to the Telstra Samsung Galaxy S2 in Australia as we speak. Connecting your Galaxy S2 to your PC and syncing it up with Samsung Kies is the method that seemed to work for most, but some users have already reported that the ICS update notification came over the air (OTA). It's likely that the OTA update will come to all Australian Galaxy S2 owners from Telstra over the following days.
I’ll recommend that you download the update via Wi-Fi, as the Android 4.0.3 update for the S2 is a hefty 213MB. That might leave a dent in your data plan if you choose to download it over 3G. Let us know how the update worked for you in the comment section below!
As Optus Mobile has rolled out the Galaxy S2 ICS update since April 16, Vodafone is now the only Australian carrier that did not upgrade the Galaxy S2 to Android 4.0. On a side-note, Vodafone is also the only major Australian carrier without an LTE network available to their customers. Optus has put up its LTE network this month, while Telstra was the first to offer Aussies LTE back in September 2011.
Growing up in my father's PC store, I was surrounded by and developed a passion for technology ever since I was in kindergarten. However, advancements made in the technology world continue to amaze me on a daily basis! I've been writing about the Android OS since back in October 2008, when Google and HTC launched the first Android smartphone ever, the T-Mobile G1 / HTC Dream. Although I'm no company's fanboy, Android is the mobile OS I devoutly support.
