T-Mobile-Samsung-Galaxy-S-II-official-launch-date

We already knew that today was the big day for T-Mobile's Galaxy S II to receive Ice Cream Sandwich. T-Mobile has just let on that the rollout will begin tonight at 11pm EST. The update will be done via Kies, so unfortunately the update won't be showing up over the air. Hope you've got a microUSB cable handy.

The update is just slightly behind the 4.0.4 that other devices have been receiving, but users probably won't be complaining too much. So, if you've got the T-Mobile Galaxy S II, be standing by your desktop tonight. If you don't already have Kies installed on your machine, now would be a good time to get a jump on that.

    I have hardly messed with Kies and now I don't even have a Windows partition. Guess I better start trying to figure out how to set up Kies again...

      Why would they force us to use Keis? Samsung PC software usually errors and has many bugs. Is this their attempt to force us to download their software?

    HEY SPRINT!? Why are you dragging your asses to get us ICS?

      Sprint had the 4.0.3 (FD26 which stands for 2012 April 26) done and it was supposed to be final but instead they decided to go straight to 4.0.4 which brought some old bugs back. Latest build is (FF11 which stands for 2012 June 11) and it just leaked. At this point who knows when it will officially come out but at least it will be the latest 4.0.4

    I think you will find there's quite a big difference between version 0.3 and 0.4 as regards the camera as well as bug fixes, all you have to do is read android forums. As for Kies, if you are having problems or think it's rubbish, obviously you haven't got it set up to your phone properly, so again take some time to read the many forums on the subject.
    Personally, I updated my S2 to 0.3 within days of it surfacing and I'm still disappointed
