    Was talking to a Samsung Rep with customer service and just asked when an update would come. Screen shot the convo and was too excited to finish chatting with 'nick'.
    I may be wrong. But seeing as other galaxy s II phones are getting updates on other carriers.

    I really really hope he's right. Got this phone in March. Moved from a iPhone 3gs. I figured since the phone came out in November the ics update would be later that month... little did I know. Anyways. Ill spend the next hour or so Googling away for official sources.

    I would love for this to be true but I have a feeling it wont happen. As much as I love my skyrocket I really wish I would have waited for the one x. Personally the gs3 looks way to feminine for me. What do you guys think about the promise of 6-24-12?

    I getting fed up with no ICS update and the toying by at&t to delay it, might consider switching to a iphone, where the manufacture controls the updates not the money hungry carriers.

    Maybe they're saving the update for the skyrocket for an early Christmas present come December. Wouldn't surprise me at all. This is a great phone, but I'll never purchase another samsung device ever again, just because of how they lag on their updates.

    Ehhh no it wont be December again I'm saying mid July but I'm hoping ill see news one day sooner dying that they released it ota. For me I will not buy touchwiz, sense, or any other skined phone. I'm going to be straight nexus from now on. Hopefully they will release one to at&t or I may have to jump ship

    The Skyrocket is my first Android device and while I love the specs, to see ICS sandwich out for so long and not have it is discouraging and frustrating. I've come to realize that the only smartphones that are worthy of Android are the Nexus line. Because of this experience, I'm honestly thinking of getting the new iPhone.

    Taking a step back would accomplish what? I would love to see the look on your face after a week of that tiny screen (compared to the skyrocket).

    Pretty much, I would give it up only for the new iPhone that supposedly has a bigger screen.

    There are other factors besides screen size.

    And what would those other factors be? Just curious.

    App store people can fandroids seriously say that the play store is better? I love android but the app store blows anything out of the water.

    This thread is not for that discussion. If we meet in a thread that talks about it, sure. But not here. Let's stay on point.

    Agreed. I'm curious as to why the ICS couldn't be released for the SR at the same time as the original S2? Sure, there's some spec differences between phones, but the differences aren't so large that is was impossible to have pulled that off.
