does it fix the crap OE email client app? How does swype work?
EDIT well I didn't type "rubbish", more like Thomas Crapper; so wonder what the more literal adjective would have resulted in....I know it's a family friendly forum (after all hi fi is a hobby for everyone right) but "EDITED" woukd be a better substitute please.
To Be honest Steve, I don't use it for email or I would never get any peace! Ditto Swype as I use Swiftkey X instead......
Just successfully updated my "independant" Galaxy S2 to ICS on Samsung Kies :cheer:
I've got a samsung galaxy S2 (3 months old) on T-mobile. What do i need to do in order to upgrade to ICS? I've heard people mention a few different ways but I am a little lost. Could some methods invalidate the guarantee. Thanks Dan
Wait for the official T-Mobile one. It 'may' invalidate warranty if you don't. SIM free is now available so it won't be long.
OK, reply atempt #3 as i keep getting a page load error (on this site only)
Just upgraded mine via VF, bit disapointed, phone keeps freezing for abot 5-6 seconds every couple of minutes with an error message that google play has stopped. Any ideas how to fix it? I cant uninstall it, otherwise I cant go fine new apps.....assuming I can even physicaly uninstall it
What is VF? I would suggest downloading the software again. |(
Does VF mean Vodafone? Do a factory reset & see if it works.
VF = Vodafone.
How do I do a factory reset?
play doesn't open at all, so currently have no way of downloading apps......

You can download apps from a computer via Google play.
Factory reset instructions here
Popped into a vodafone shop, advised it's a known random problem with Google who are trying to find a fix.
Going to try to re-install over Kies and see if that helps....next stop Samsung tech help line.
Had to do a hard reset to fix the problem after talking to Samsung. Beware, as they admit it's a random problem that affects a significant number of their phones. Back your data up, I thought I had between Lookout and Google, but alas not all of it.....
Having done it, my advice is don't bother until the bugs are ironed out. The differences are ostly cosmetic, I see no improvement in battery life, nor the management of wi-fi and mobile data reception. If nothing else, I am amazed at the number of really irate people on the various phone forums (an odd "interest" in its own right perhaps) who are so desperate to get their updates, and threatening to change carriers / phone brand!
Just done the update on my samsung galaxy s2 - T.Mobile
from start to finish took about 60mins so far so good
I've just upgraded to ICS 4.0.4 ROM via ClockWorkMod and the F1GalaxyNexus one. Fantastic.
