    Is ICS available yet?

      Previous comments have had their answered just read

  • Beka9021

    It is 1:35 EST and  no ICS available  . I don`t think that, we will get update today!

    • Idaduck23

      Might have to be midnight for the rest of the US

    • anonymous

      Same here. I also own a Sensation and an Amaze however, and although they are HTC devices, when they we’re updated, it went live as of 3:00 a.m. EST, I assume because of Tmo being on the West coast, and being 3 hours behind EST. Check back around 3 a.m. and see, I know that’s what i’m going to do, just like I did for my other updates, and they were ready at 3 a.m EST. on the dot.

      • Mlstephanie32

        Ooooh yeah…you’re right!   I am central time so I will check at 2am. 

  • Ghuayu

    Gosh I’m still waiting for the ICS, current it is 2:00 over EST….. hopefully one more Hours to go.

    • ONEBIRMINGHAM

      11:17pm Sunday (PDT) - Time in California   45 MIN LEFT

      • Ghuayu

        I can’t lay down to bed without my ICS… 30more minutes

        • ONEBIRMINGHAM

          it may take a few min after 12 to update

  • Robjms14

    Wait… Only via Samsung kies or can we go to setting and update it from there?:l

    • Sdfasdf

      Via Kies on the computer.

  • Omar m.

  • Heywoodjablome

    Charlie : I understand that you want information on ICS update for the SGH-T989 device. Is it correct?
    Visitor: yes
    Charlie : Thank you.
    Charlie : I will be glad to provide you the required information.
    Visitor: thanks
    Charlie : Yes, the 4.0 is planned for the device and should be released today. As of now the update is not yet released. Please check back after couple of hours.  
    Visitor: im not staying up till 4 am
    Visitor: can you give me a time when its coming out
    Charlie : I am sorry to inform that we do not have the exact time for the update release. The update should be released today for the device.

    dont depend on samsung…

    • anonymous

      Has nothing to do with Samsung. Samsung released ICS to Tmo long ago in order to allow them time to pre-load their apps, and specific carrier features and also to make sure it’s running correctly on the device, just as every other device manufacturers ICS update method, whether being HTC, LG, Sony, Samsung, etc. It’s Tmo who we need to depend on, and not Samsung. Give it a bit.

  • cspek

    had a pop-up asking to update, but my kies froze

    • anonymous

      That was just an update for the Kies program itself, and not ICS, or any firmware update. Just updated Kies earlier tonight myself and it did the same thing the first try, but you wont notice any changes. It’s probably setting Kies up to receive and release the ICS update and pushing it live within the next few hours via Kies.

  • Jsjasj

    lol forget it i am going to bed catch it when i wake up

  • brandaninidaho

    I’ll bet someone has to go in this morning and flip the proverbial switch before this happens…Just another way to keep everyone holding on and shivering with antici…pation…

  • Korm1203

    i’m starting to look at the ” more details soon” 

  • Pissed Off

    3:13 in Maryland , NOTHING -___- :(

  • Ghuayu

    3:23 in Michigan still nothing WTF………….. waiting it for nothing

  • TmoJon

    Maybe they meant Hawaii time.. lol

  • Chlnmtchll

    If people in the west coast are getting it now then the next well be central then east. No one told you to stay up all night. Im up because I just cant sleep. So blame yourselves for staying up all night for nothing dont get made at the company for your lack of independence.

    • couldnotcareless

      Just like you I can’t sleep. Doesn’t make me dependent on this update. I’m currently watching the Simpsons. I’m a bartender that has the night off, so I’m often up late. If you are going to say something about people waiting up at night on message boards because they don’t have anything better to do, then maybe you shouldn’t even post on here and make yourself look like more of a fool. Also, where are you hearing that people on the West Coast are getting the update? Obviously not here…dumbass.

      • Mlstephanie32

        LOL!  I work evening shift so I am always up late. 

        • couldnotcareless

          High Five! Night Owls unite!

      • TmoJon

        Win!  lol

      • Chlnmtchll

        Oh i’m the dumbass and I have friends who live on Oregon. I came here for the jell of it becaus if people could read it says starting June 11 not that everyone could get it. and you sure are the dumbass

        • couldnotcareless

          Weird. I have friends that live in every time zone too! This is an amazing coincidence! I’d believe that I was the dumbass if you could spell…I just reread what you wrote. I don’t have friends that live ON any state, but I have plenty that live in them. Thanks for the laugh! Where would you like me to send the tip to?

        • Chlnmtchll

          Its cute that the bartender wants correct grammar and spelling. Do you want me to correct it? Or maybe I should fix your mortgage payments out your car payments maybe even tell you something more ridiculous

        • couldnotcareless

          Yeah, a 27 year old bartender that has a degree in psychology and a minor in business working in a bar in a small town in Idaho to help my father and mother out since his triple bypass. Then moving back to Portland. I also own my own car and my own house, so I don’t need any help with those at all. I also have no loans, no credit cards, no debt from financial aid…Unlike you, I’m obviously smarter with basic grammar and spelling, finances, and irony…

        • couldnotcareless

          The only thing you could possibly have on me is that I am a homosexual…but I can promise you that I’ve heard it all already so I guess that’s actually out as well.

  • BIGDILL24

    IF ONLY ALL OF YOU COULD READ. UPDATE COMING VIA KIES AIR!!!! NOT OTA…. SMFH

    • couldnotcareless

      Kies…on the computer…not Kies Air…

      • Mlstephanie32

        Yeah…you have to be connected to pc via wifi or usb to get update.  

    • McBain

      awwwww who let the baby stay up and cry about ics updates? if only you could read that people have been trying via kies already. it’s alright though because we all know big babies are really stupid. 

      • BIGDILL24

        oh i guess that was funny. And being a DM for Target corporation requires less sleep in order to make the big salary wages and bonuses. Little Boy

        • McBain

          Is it a job requirement at Target to be unable to read as a DM? Congrats on working retail I guess? 

        • BIGDILL24

          CONGRATS ON WORKING AT MCDONALDS!

        • McBain35235

          Nice assumption but I never gave any indication of what I do for a living. You on the other hand brag about managing a Target. Feel free to take a minute and reevaluate your life to see where it all went wrong and how to you got to this point. Take your time and actually think how you became the proud retail slave you are. 

  • Mlstephanie32

    T-Mo…why you gotta eff with my emotions like this?! You ain’t right mayne! 

  • Deadastronautinspace

    02:15 in AZ and no update…Ah well…I’ll check in the morning…not gonna hold my breath all night…

  • TmoJon

    Might be getting somewhere.  Just loaded Kies..  and it said there is an update to the Kies program.  Updating now.. Keep everyone posted!

    • Deadastronautinspace

      Yeah I got that update to Kies around midnight when I was looking for the update and nothing…Maybe you will get lucky though…

      • TmoJon

        Nope.. same as you.  No update.. Boo!  Sleep time lol

  • CoreyD

    3:58am Albuquerque no update as of yet…

  • Tom in Tampa

    So how exactly do you execute this update?  Just have Kies connected on both the phone and PC and it will notify you there’s an update? 

  • http://tmonews.com David

    You stayed up because I made a statement, not tmobile, don’t be so dramatic if the update doesn’t come right as the clock strikes midnight.

  • Tej_mangat

    Anybody got it yet…..?

    • Omar m.

       got an update for kies on my pc 20 minutes ago arizona time,but no necessary for my phone…did someone finally got it on the east coast?

  • Bossusa

    just got a new updated version of kies, not ICS, WTF

    • http://tmonews.com David

      What is everyone so mad about? It’s still the 11th until midnight right? You can wait a few more hours.

      • Dumbazz

        Ya no doubt friggin whiners.

        • http://twitter.com/meek_420 Mike

          David I agree, but I’m just so tired of waiting

      • 1man

        @David I was hoping to have before work. If samsung wants to apple so much, update your products when you say you are going to. Procrastination is not a good quality in any sutuation.

  • David E

    I’m one of those who got excited when the June 11 Kies update came down earlier this morning, only to be disappointed that there was still no new firmware. Currently on the Acela to Boston, so I guess I’ll be checking in multiple cities along the way…

  • mjcity0076

    Please GIVE me THIS UPDATE!!!!! Waiting for This update has been hell all these while

  • http://twitter.com/Turbocrazy13 Titino Lattie

    HTC Sensation 4G Android already run ICS 4.0 is ROCKING better than Sleepy Samsung -_- zzzzzz.

    • Dumbazz

      “zzzzzz” That is all I saw and it describes HTC PERFECTLY!

  • Pat

    When  ICS does become available, is it an automatic update or someother way to get it?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/OQQQOOIVUCFVUTLXDDJ4TGLH6Y unknown

      When you plug your phone into the computer and open Kies on the computer, a window should pop up that say’s there is a firmware upgrade. This happened to me the other day when I updated gingerbread.

  • Yede1

    Patiently waiting here in Minneapolis. Will update when something changes..

    • Dave2metz

      In Minneapolis too! At work, frequently checking to see if it is released…

      • Senor Ralph85

  • Omar m.

  • Contactjct3

        • Cole

          Samsung says they are’t sure either…it may come through OTA, maybe Kies, maybe both…they said they won’t know anything for 3 days…

        • Cole

      • Cole

        ok new 411…the update is OTA, confirmed by Samsung, and by two different reps on Samsung’s end!!!  Kies will not recognize it…

        • krzykronixxx

          talked to level 3 Support yesterrday.. update will be through KIES DESKTOP SOFTWARE.. NO OTA for initial release!!!

    • Sammaam

      how… i am in houston too,. i dont got it… whats going on?

  • Krzykronixxx

    7:17 A.M. PaCIFIC.. jus checked Kies.. no update yet.

  • Bfried7

    Houston, was the kies ics update automatic or was there a
    procedure that you had to perform?

    • Nick

      I just plug in double tap kies on PC and it said new software your phone

    • Nick

    • http://profiles.google.com/pappasan.d daniel choi

      I think this is procedure to perform… Under connected devices, highlight your device name and right click.  Check to see if “Firmware Upgrade” is available. If so, perform Kies Firmware upgrade, this will dl the most current kies firmware version.. After this is completed, go to your Tools menu in Kies, and select Firmware upgrade.. follow steps from there.. hope this is helpful. I’m doing it now as we speak.

    Must be nice to cry on an internet forum about a phone update. I wish I had the luxury of such minor problems. Once you have jobs, families,etc you will see what I mean.

      ummm thank you very much I work overnight, 40/hrs a week, have a family, and pay all of my bills on time!!!  I can complain if I want!!!

  • mgiusto

    I updated to 2.3.6-T989UVLDE on Friday in preparation for ICS today and it increased my battery life substantially.  Prior to this upgrade I would generally last 10 hours on a full charge.  After the update I was able to go 2 full days (leaving phone unplugged and on overnight) before charging and I was only at 23% at that time.

    I hope the upgrade to ICS keeps this battery life!  I think I am going to stay with this update for this week just to see how this battery performs for a full week before upgrading to ICS.

    Via Twitter TMobile confirms it will go out later today but is NOT available to anyone yet.
