T-Mobile has begun rolling out the long-awaited Ice Cream Sandwich update (T769UVLH5) for the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G, and you can get it right now one of two ways. First, you can head to your phone's settings menu and check for the update.

    Just upgraded my Blaze to ICS via Kies. Everything's great, ICS is sleek, but oh boy the battery life is terrible compared to what I had on GB. Right now I get about 6-8 hours with moderate to light use. On GB though, I got at least 10-12+ hours with the same usage. Any tips on downgrading back to GB?
