Well this is some great news indeed
I wonder when will we get ICS on our T-Mobile variant?
Galaxy S2 ICS Upgrade
You can upgrade your mobile to Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) thru KIES 2.0 or FOTA.
To upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich, you must upgrade KIES to the latest version.
(KIES 1.5 does not support upgrading to ICS)
To upgrade mobile OS thru FOTA, large firmware file must be downloaded in your mobile.
So it's strongly recommended to use high speed WI-FI connection when you upgrade your mobile to ICS thru FOTA
1. Major Improvement
- Platform upgrades Android 2.3 Gingerbread → Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
ㆍ Face Unlock and Android Beam are added
ㆍ Mobile Network Data usage function is added
ㆍ Usability of multi-tasking and some applications is improved
※ Because of ICS OS feature, Adobe flash and Bluetooth 3.0 HS will not be supported in
ICS OS (Bluetooth 3.0 is supported still)
(1) Initializing a few user data
Note: To prevent unexpected data loss, please back-up your data thru Kies before upgrading.
(2) Internal memory space
(Thru Kies: 60MB at least, Thru FOTA: 350MB at least)
(3) Application compatibility
(4) Customized firmware
If unofficial or customized firmware is installed in the mobile, unexpected problem can happen during upgrading
Yeah yeah yeah... we get it. Everyone else will get it before we do. But you know, as someone else here pointed out, that's not entirely a bad thing. There are apps that have not yet been updated with work with ICS.
Also, most people are pretty annoyed with bloatware and the list of things someone else doesn't want you to be able to do with your personal property. The odds are good that a hacked [read: cleaned up] version of ICS will be available for our version of the SGS2 before T-Mobile's bloated and limited version is released. (I guess what I'm saying is the new shiny won't be as new or shiny as you wish it would be anyway.)
Samsung also just tweeted that the march 10th date was wrong and that i9100 users will have to wait a bit.
Unfortunately, this is irrelevant to the T-Mobile version, which is the SGH-T989, as opposed to the GT-i9100. The SGH-T989 differs in that it has a larger screen, but not SAMOLED+ like the other variants, as well as utilizing a Qualcomm dual core Snapdragon CPU for compatibility with T-Mobile's 42mb hsdpa network. The other variants use Samsung's own Exynos II dual core CPU. Because of this, ours will likely be among the last updated.
And once again. Thank you for regurgitating information that 90% of us already know. Just be factual about what you speak. Look at the back of your box. We have the Super Amoled+ screen. :-)
I love how you guys have just copied and pasted in several threads now! Yes @dethduck, we are aware that the GT-i9100 and the SGH-T989 are different devices under the same moniker. We know that we are still a ways out on receiving any type of OTA from T-Mobile, we're just excited about news, that's all. It's not entirely irrelevant.
What we really need to do is stop making new threads every time some news pops up about ICS - there are already so many threads we're all just copying and pasting our posts!
Well he started it! LOL!
"※ Because of ICS OS feature, Adobe flash and Bluetooth 3.0 HS will not be supported in

That's not a good thing...no Flash support????
I think I'll wait.......
No, ICS supports flash just fine - most likely a misprint or translation issue - I'm using Flash on ICS (4.0.3) on my wife's Vibrant right now with no issue
No it's not a misprint. Since Adobe is no longer supporting mobile devices, there is no new Flash "app" written for ICS. However the last iteration of Flash player, 11.1, works fine.
What does this do in the future for web sites and games and stuff?
HTML 5 is supposed to be the future.
