It has become apparent that releasing ICS for 2.3.x phones is a lot harder than it looks.
HTC keeps sliding which phones will get ICS and when they will get it. Samsung has said that ICS was not performing satisfactorily on single processor phones.
Take your time and get this release right.
My Galaxy SII works just fine now on Gingerbread and I do not want a buggy ICS just to get a new skin and a few odd new features.
I concur. I don't want to compromise between getting the newest OS and losing features. I want my phone to continue to work as good as the day I powered it up. With all the shiney new things that ICS will offer. An update should improve on what you have not take away.
Here, here! If it's not right, send it back until it is.
P.S. A leak for the boys at XDA wouldn't hurt, though.
Hey animaleyezz, u seem to no alot have a question for u, I have family allowances to block a retart ex boy toy since he was useless as a boyfriend...any who do u no how to store numbers on the "unwanted" list instead of calling C.S??
Thanks. Yes simply go to the number you want to block on the phone list, do a long press on the number, then select add to blacklist.
Oh ****. Really? Okay bout to try it and see wat happens....
I agree, get it right first.
wouldn't rush it either if they would do an update to fix this retarded *** bluetooth dialing program they have. You can't use handsfree because you have to unlock the all locks and the screen has to be on before you can press the button and go into the program to actually speak and dial. I am hoping ICS has the ability to change which program you can use for your bluetooth because this one won't allow anything even with the help of an app that's suppose to do just that still no luck.
After watching some reviews for the unlocked google Nexus, I found out ICS does not include swype. I'm not sure if it's just for Nexus or ICS in general. Just an FYI... I too will wait for reviews if it's worth upgrading to ICS.
Since most of the reviews I've seen were outside the US it's hard to say.
I'm not sure if this is about getting the technical bugs worked out so much as it is about licensing from Samsung and dedicating the support staff toward supporting an ICS release and the inevitable issues that may arise from even the most stable version. Neither T-Mobile nor Samsung want to expose themselves to liability for releasing a buggy update, and I'm sure there's a lot of backroom dealing and money changing hands in order to release anything at all. T-Mobile has other priorities playing catch up and trying to remain viable after the failed AT&T merger.
Samsung has had a Touchwizzed version of ICS for a variety of GS2 hardware for well over a month, including the AT&T Skyrocket (which is the closest in hardware to the SGH-T989). This is not a technical limitation - it's a legal and financial one. If there are bugs remaining, it will likely be we the users who will discover them regardless of how much testing T-Mobile and Samsung do.
