T-Mobile starts rolling out Ice Cream Sandwich update for Samsung Galaxy S2
Picking up on our last report about the coming of Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich for T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S2 on June 11, it seems the carrier has stayed true to its words by finally rolling out the update at 11 PM yesterday – a mere one hour before the clock hits 12. Kind of makes you wish that you hadn’t spent so much time refreshing the phone and checking on the Kies software all day yesterday, doesn’t it?
As detailed on T-Mobile’s website, don’t expect to see any notification for the ICS update on your phone, as the roll out will not be pushed through via OTA. You’ll have to get your dessert update via Kies instead, so it’s recommended to update the PC companion software to the latest version.
While ICS won’t drastically change the look of your Samsung Galaxy S2, there are some improvements and enhancements to be found. There’s a new lock screen action, face unlock, recent apps shortcut, added gestures, data usage tracker, and more. The update will also bring CMAS improvement, Wi-Fi calling enhancements, and voicemail enhancements.
And as for some final words to the wise, please make sure your Samsung Galaxy S2 has at least 50% battery before applying the ICS update. Enjoy your Ice Cream Sandwich treat, and don’t forget to share your experience by writing in the comments below.
