OTA update for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II brings it to Android 2.3.6

OTA update for the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II brings it to Android 2.3.6
Although there still might be some people bummed about the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, those who decided to take the plunge with the non-LTE enabled AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II model are going to be glad knowing they’re still seeing some love.

From the looks of it, one of our faithful readers managed to inform us that they just started receiving an over-the-air update that brings the venerable smartphone to Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread. Taking a look at AT&T’s support forums, it verifies that the 20MB update has indeed started rolling out to handsets, but there is no official change log noting its exact contents. However, our reader claims that it fixes the handset's security lock screen issue.

Beyond that, we’d assume that it probably includes the usual set of enhancements and bug fixes to keep the handset in good working condition. In any event, the notification is probably making its rounds as we speak – so you’d better double check right now and get it installed.

Thanks to our anonymous tipster!

Do you have bluetooth issues? My phone is very eradic with my headset but my older Samsung Captivate connects to it within 15 feet automatically like it should. As for the 2.3.6... I wouldn't stress it. It's a real minor thing that 99% of people won't even notice. My voice functionality is great. On my Captivate I had to speak slow and clear when doing a text message. This phone I can speak normal and say alot more at one time and it always gets it right.
