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.
