U.S. unlocked Galaxy S IIs starting to see ICS update
Well there is a little bit of good news for some US Galaxy S II owners this morning. People in the US who have unlocked Galaxy S IIs have begun to see an OTA update available. We must specify that by unlocked, we mean the international, non-carrier branded version of this phone.
While a few owners have reported that they were able to update their unlocked Galaxy S II in the U.S. manually via Kies for a few weeks now, this is the first time we have seen reports of the OTA update taking effect.
For those of you with unlocked Galaxy S IIs here in the states, you should get an alert very soon, or you can go to Settings and manually check for an update.

are you referring if im an apple, android, wp, bb, etc fan? the answer is i just love tech stuff and like to comment on the good and the bad. e.g i like apple for their gadgets, google for their internet services, windows for their OS and so on. but not yet a fan of all product range or "ecosystem" of a single company.
+ i dont work for any carrier or mobile company just updated through kies

I guess what @cellieCell meant to ask if you are with any particular carrier. I have the i9100 and still havent seen any update. Do oyou have the same device or do you have the US variations?

I dont think samsung handled the updates well at all.
