    How are you guys checking for updates? just opening and closing Kies?

    • Senor Ralph85

      Try rebooting your computer and removing and reinstalling your SIM card. That worked for me. 

      • BrianWeston

        How does one “re-install” their SIM card? Are you talking about removing it and then putting it back in?

      i dont think it well be happning today!!!!

      • Eric Atcheson

        It’s rolling out, but I bet we aren’t all going to get it one big satisfactory wave.  Way I’m looking at it, Magenta is not getting it after AT&T which is a nice change of pace.

    Downloading the update as I type this.. Austin, TX.

    And no, I’m not trolling.

    • Manjushrisword

      telling use whether its OTA or Kies is the most helpful thank you!

      • kingpinsodapop

         All I did was hook it up via USB and opened Kies. It automatically suggested that I install the new firmware.

        A little window pops up showing your current firmware and the new one

        • Manjushrisword

          thanks!

        • Eric Atcheson

          I had that too but wasnt for the phone, think mine was just a kies update

        • http://twitter.com/epiqness Mudathir Syed

           I did the Kies update last night and decided to wait till I try and update my phone.

          It worked today

      • http://twitter.com/epiqness Mudathir Syed

         I’ll tell you one thing though, it’s a pretty decently sized file. Taking some time to download..

      • Justinreynolds98

        Its not a ota must be done thru kies.Have not checked to see if its there yet.

    • Sammaam

          Can’t believe that you want everyone knows your phone number!

    • ResidentJack

       OK… So I think a lot of you are either downloading The KIES update, or the 2.3.6 Update, Not ICS.  So please, until you can confirm that you have 4.0.3 Stop posting these dumb messages saying “downloading now…”  Cause… NO, your not!

      • http://twitter.com/epiqness Mudathir Syed

         Go check my twitter page.. I posted a screen shot

          Looks like the real deal..where are you located my friend?

        • http://twitter.com/epiqness Mudathir Syed

           Austin, Texas. I dunno why I got the update versus half the other people. Maybe ’cause there’s a Samsung Corporate office here?

          I wouldn’t make this up either..

        • anonymous

          T-Mobile announced that it comes out at 11. Show a screen shot of the phone. My Kies says an update is available and starts downloading, but then does nothing!!! Meaning you got s**t!!!

      • http://twitter.com/epiqness Mudathir Syed

         btw I already downloaded the Kies update last night. I know the difference between the two as it clearly states “FIRMWARE UPGRADE”

  • http://twitter.com/epiqness Mudathir Syed

     No problem!

    Anybody having a hard time just connecting to Kies? any suggestions?

    • megh

      after updating kies, my phone was not recognized… disconnect it and run the “troubleshoot connection error”.. that should fix it…

  • http://twitter.com/epiqness Mudathir Syed

    just finsihed..hmm

    • Eric Atcheson

      Did you just update the 2.3.6 update lol?

      • anonymous

        There were 2 different versions of 2.3.6 also, one of which was just released a week or so ago. are you positive you’re on 4.0.3, and not just on the newest 2.3.6  build, which also brought a new lockscreen, similar to that of the ICS lockscreen? Hard to believe you have it, and not a single other person does. The 2.3.6 versions were codes UVLDE and the previous 2.3.6 update was UVKL1. 

        • Ebe2023

          These people saying they got it are confused. If your getting something right now it is not the ICS update as it will not happen Over the Air. What you are getting is the 2.3.6 update because I got the same thing this morning was over the air. ICS will release tonight and has to be updated by Kies.  

  • TGASTT

    Has anyone else noticed T-Mobile pushing something over the air this past weekend? It almost seems like it was them b/c when I put the phone on WiFi, the downloads stopped, but now, my data usage is maxed out…  I thought it was ICS coming over the air, and when I called them this morning, they said it was over the air, and that it would take upto 7 days to download… anyone else hear this?

    • TGASTT

      I’m on Kies now, and don’t see a thing except a Kies update…

  • Datruth63

    nothing as of yet in Tenneessee… its 15 minutes past noon… central standard time…

    you would think they would post a time or something to inform their customers on whats is going on

    • Shawn

      So that could mean 11:59pm… -_-

  • Df3

    Don’t they realize what a bad PR move this is, keeping us waiting all day like this?

      You’ll live

      and I think T Mobile will still be a company tomorrow despite making you wait all day…

  • Networkjct

    Ok so why not just say the update would be available on the 12th?? It would have made a lot more sense to do this. I dunno I am just sayin. 

  • Samsung Galaxy S2

    Hey guys, I read somewhere (don’t remember where), that after the ICS update, all your apps, contacts, etc. will be wiped, almost as if a factory reset, is that true? Thanks in advance.

    • Sam Gal S II

      i heard its just the homescreen config that will be wiped .

    • anonymous

      Most likely you will need to make a backup. If you’re rooted you can back up your apps and their data using titanium backup. Don’t think it will delete your emmbeded memory ie music and picutres, but I wouldn’t risk it drop box will automatically sync your pics for you with its online storage.

  • Pissed Off

    so they deleted the other post , coooooooool

    • Networkjct

      tmobile is on some bull*%!#

  • Senor Ralph85

  • Blitz

    Lots of pissed off people about a friggin update? SERIOUSLY? You bought you phone with NO PROMISES of an update and now you want to act like a princess who isnt getting her pretty pony RIGHT NOW….

    • Scurvymeat

      To be fair I was promised an update by the time i bought the S2.
      And I feel some are over reacting. I myself need the ICS update to have my phone allowed on the company email. So my disappointment is noticeable and i wonder why they didnt just say the 12th. Save a headache, my It people were all prepped and ready

    • Labratm

      I agree that people are over reacting a bit, but i too was promised the update when i bought the phone. True, ppl need to chill out, but also true that tmobile is terrible with getting these updates out. I went throught the same thing with the Galaxy S1
