          Not to sound mean, but this exact topic has been covered literally a thousand times.  The international SGS2 (GT-i9100) is a COMPLETELY different phone from the one we have (SGH-T989), and we do not have any kind of scheduled OTA update yet for ICS.  It will probably be a few more months to be honest.  It's not anyone's fault, it's just that Samsung has to rework the software for our phone now and then release it to T-Mobile so they can add on top of that.  The process may very well already be underway but we won't know until it's close to release date, which could be anywhere from a week to 5 months honestly.

            I'm gonna have to cosign with unclespoon here.  There are some basic features on this and every other message board/forum that allows us to "search" for questions and answers.  It works just like Google. It's in the top left hand corner too. 

            We try extremely hard to deal with people's real issues based on our first hand experience and knowledge. We also give out information, tip, tricks and news pertaining to your specific device.  So if you need some real help let's know and if we can't solve your query we'll direct you promptly to a customer service agent who can.

              Wow.. rude people. I'll answer it for you. When T-Mobile is done packing the Samsung update release with bloatware and spyware like Carrier IQ. If my last phone was any guage, this took about a year after the official update release from the manufacturer. In other words, don't hold your breath.

                Rude, yet you come on here to cry about when T-Mobile releases an update and your last phone. Since you've been on this forum have you offered 1 bit of helpful advice?  I don't think so.  If you're so unhappy with T-Mobile stop being a customer, go to another carrier and move on with your life.  Life is too short for you to be trolling this board with all this animosity when you could be reaping the benefits of another carrier.

                No not rude but teachng one to utilize the basic functions on this board (and any others) to check for answers first, especially when they've been addressed 50 to 60 times as opposed to answering the same question again and again.

                    Therefore, NOT READY.

                     

                    When the announcement comes out officially, it's ready.  It's not ready until the announcement comes.  It could be almost ready.  It could be "developed but not tested."  But, until it's announced it's ready, it's NOT ready.

                      Hearsay. Always hearsay, my friends', cousins', uncles', brother etc. Give me something concrete from Samsung not the guy that works at the reception desk or the cafeteria.

                        I saw this, so all hope is not lost. Maybe we can finally have some hope on TMO and Sammy :-)

                        T-Mobile is looking to keep Galaxy S2 customers sweet, as it promises to roll out the Ice Cream Sandwich update as soon as possible after the March 19 date.

                        A T-Mobile spokesperson said: "We're working to make our build available as close to Samsung's release date as possible."

                          I hate to bust your bubble, and mine, but Tech Radar is in the UK and probably talking about that area, not the USA.

                            Yeah, while I do appreciate your effort and research, they are all talking about the GT-i9100, or international version of the phone.  Our update isn't coming until some time from now.  I feel like I'm beating a horse that's been dead for about 2 months...

                            • 11. Re: ICS update for the T-Mobile Galaxy S2!?? WHEN??

                              It seems like a reasonable question to me.  WHEN??.  I have searched long and hard and have not seen any reliable answer to this very very basic question.   An estimate of anywhere from 1 week to 5 months ?  Seriously?  We should take that as an acceptable answer?  As of this comment there have been about 2,000 Views to this post, why?  because the question has not been answered yet.  Come on T-mobile you are a communications company.  Communicate with your customers!!!

                                Sounds like the MyTouch3G / FroYo peoples.

                                 

                                *sigh* I miss SonDa5!

                                 

                                It'll come when it comes.  Until you you can start explaining apps that are no longer being supported for Gingerbread [our version of Android], it doesn't matter when it comes out.

                                 

                                Yes, there's some cool features that are due out in ICS, but there's been no confirmation or denial that these features will be in our build [there's an assumption that they'll be in our build, but nothing's been communicated].

                                 

                                Enjoy your phone as it is!

                                  But the question has been addressed and not really answered nearly a thousand times. All we're asking is to search on the site before you ask a question that's been asked already!

                                  • 14. Re: ICS update for the T-Mobile Galaxy S2!?? WHEN??

                                    The answer is: No one knows. Given T-Mobile's track record from the past, it will be a while. T-Mobile will never give a straight answer, so it is pointless to ask the question. If Samsung would just release the appropriate Android 4 drivers for our T989's, we could just use the AOSP build the hackers create.

                                     

                                    This is why Apple will always do better than Android: Apple has a polished os and updates it regularly. Carriers make no promises to update Android devices so they can keep selling new devices. It will be the doom of Android.
