When the Sprint LG Viper was launched back in April, it was running Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Finally, the phone is getting an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and it’s rolling out starting today.

This update, which is rolling out over the air, upgrades the Sprint LG Viper’s software to version LS840ZVI. The post from Sprint mentions a number of new features, but they are just the new features that upgrading from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich brings. The only other feature mentioned is “Number of users displayed on Hotspot.” It isn’t yet clear if any other features were added in the update.

If you haven’t received a notification yet, you can check for the update by going to “Settings > About Phone > System Updates.” If you have yet to see the update, be patient. The announcement from Sprint states that “Updates may be released in stages. When checking for the update, you may receive a message that no update is available, check back later or wait until the update notification is sent to your device.”

Users of the Sprint LG Viper: have you gotten the Ice Cream Sandwich update yet? How do you like it so far?
