Update your T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II to Android 4.0.3

Update your T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II to Android 4.0.3
You might want to take a minute to try to figure out why T-Mobile and Samsung consider the Android 4.0.3 update now available for T-Mobile's version of the Samsung Galaxy S II an 'optional' update. Granted, not everyone might want to update but we'd bet the percentage of those who do is pretty high. Anyway, as a result of this 'optional' designation, the Ice Cream Sandwich build of Android for the handset is not coming via an OTA update and will require users to use Samsung Kies. The whole update news isn't much of a surprise, since we told you earlier Monday that the update was coming.

The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II

To update the T-Mobile version of the Samsung Galaxy S II (Whoops! We almost added another roman numeral I there), you need to have downloaded the most up to date version of Kies on your desktop. Once you hook up your phone to your PC using a USB cable, the Kies screen should pop up. Follow the prompts and you will be on your way to enjoying Android 4.0.3 on your device. Besides the usual Ice Cream Sandwich improvements, the new firmware will enhance Wi-Fi calling, the Commercial Mobile Alert System (CMAS), and user voicemail.

After you've completed the update, let us know how it all went down for you and you can even leave us with your impressions of Android 4.0.3 by typing out your comments in the box below.

Why'd you get the S2 if you could've gotten the One S?

Ah. True dat. Laggy ol' Sense. :P
I hate Touchwiz more, though because they don't put the sexy ICS favorites dock in ICS. They have to put the apps drawer at the end and make it look fugly.
