Ice Cream Sandwich update for AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S II delayed for technical reasons
posted by Alan F. / Jun 21, 2012, 10:34 PM
So why was the Android 4.0 first made available and then apparently pulled? One AT&T customer decided to discuss the matter with an AT&T rep via a Live Chat. And during this chat, the rep said that the update has been delayed due to "Technical Reasons". There is some speculation from Samsung and AT&T reps that the update will be attempted again this coming Saturday, but during the Live Chat, the rep said that he/she had no new details because the update was still in the process of being tested.
Some who managed to download the update before it was pulled are complaining about lag, which might be why the update was pulled to begin with. Those with the device can wait until Saturday and see if they have the opportunity to try again.

WP8 will come ONLY at he end of 2012 and it can current WP7.x devices can never be updated to it... So what is the use of buying WP7.x devices NOW???? What about users who have bought Lumia800/710/900??? Delayed update is much much better than NO UPDATE, imho... WP7.8 is just a new home-screen + WP7.5... Worse than an eye-wash, imho

Oh for crying out loud. Why does AT&T keep insisting on putting Samsung updates out over Kies? They should do it OTA like every f**king body else. If I wanted non OTA updates I'd go for a f**king iPhone 4.
