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

A small, 11MB over-the-air update is on its way to T-Mobile's variant of the Galaxy S II this morning, which brings a few minor enhancements to the year-old device. Among those, you'll find a "Qualcomm fix," along with Vlingo S Voice improvements, and some general security enhancements.

As usual with Samsung devices, there are a couple of different ways you can apply the update to your device. First – and probably the easiest – is to just pull it via OTA; you can either wait until the automatic notification shows up letting you know that an update is available, or head into Settings > About Phone > System Updates to manually check. Alternatively, it can also be applied via Samsung's Kies software – plugging your device into a PC and launching Kies should prompt the install process.

The OTA will be rolling out in phases, and should reach all handsets by February 7th.

    Weird timing considering Jelly Bean came out overseas yesterday for the Galaxy S2.

      my thoughts too. maybe this is to prepare for the JB update?

        Doubt it. Remember how long it took us to get ICS for our S2?

    It's frustrating and upsetting how T-Mobil always seems to be very untimely with updates.

    T-Mobile was pretty insistent on the update! I did a backup and let it update my LH1. Seemed to work fine, but it still shows LH1... I also didn't lose root. :) So it probably just closes the security holes and doesn't hurt anything.
