AT&T confirms ICS delay for Samsung Galaxy S II, hopes to bring it back soon
On Thursday, we told you about an AT&T customer who had a conversation with an AT&T rep via Live Chat. The subject of the chat was the pulled Samsung Galaxy S II Android 4.0 update. One minute, it was available via Kies and the next minute it was gone. The Live Chat Rep revealed that AT&T had killed the update because of "Technical Reasons," with speculation that the nation's second largest carrier would start again on Saturday.

On Friday, AT&T said in a statement that it usually tests updates on its servers before rolling it out to their customers. The mobile operator said that it is currently testing the Android 4.0 update for the Samsung Galaxy S II and plans on rolling it out soon. Obviously, those who were accessing Ice Cream Sandwich were downloading a version of the software that had not been fully tested, which explains the "laggy" performance. In the meantime, AT&T is telling its customers that they should wait for the official word to download the software.
