Well they'll be happy to get off gingerbread, but there were several issues related to the Sprint version that caused some headaches when ICS came out. Battery problems, killing Wi-Fi and Bluetooth pairings, performance problems, blah blah blah. Bottom line, hopefully it's a smoother roll out for everyone getting this update...

Yeah. I have the Sprint Galaxy S2. It's not as great as expected. When in sleep mode for a while, Wifi turns off. Battery life kinda sucks. Laggy without Nova Launcher. However, the official leaked Jelly Bean has no bugs and will be rolled out on Sprint soon. Don't know about US Cellular though, haha. They're really late to the party.
