    I'm still waiting for it here in Western Washington as well. Does anyone who has it notice any improvement in the radio? I'm hoping it's better, but expecting more of the same.

    yes big difference. signal strength is way better. my gps locked in about a minute which is awesome considering it took 15 minutes with gingerbread and the best thing is they fixed the internet speed problem. with gingerbread i got 5-10Mbps downloads. I flashed about 8 different modems with ICS and couldn't get above 1.5Mbps in the areas with the best signal strength. woke up this morning to the update prompt. have about a dozen apps on my phone and just did the update over my phone, rebooted, checked my internet speed first thing and now i'm getting over 5Mbps download consistantly. dont really notice any other changes yet. awesome upgrade. now i love ICS.

    How do you check the internet speed?

    I just recieved the update this morning and I don't want to jinx myself but my phone does seem to have slightly better reception now. It used to be so bad that my phone would be perpetually warm to the touch when I was at work. I have very weak Sprint reception at my office and my phone usually spent around 50% of the time roaming. But so far I have been on Sprint 3G all morning and my phone is still cool to the touch.

    I know this isn't exactly a scientific test but for me it seems promising.

    You can force the OTA if you feel like it. Clear Data from Google Framework a couple of times, (Settings -> Applications -> All -> Google Services Framework -> Clear Data), then go back and Check Samsung Update or whatever it's called.

    Thanks Shorty J! That did the trick for me.

    NOTE: I kept selecting "Update Firmware" rather than "Update Samsung software" and no update was available. After the 4th time of clearing the framework data and "stopping it", I finally selected "Update Samsung software" in the System Updates section -- low-and-behold the update was there. I know the instructions were to select the "Samsung Update or whatever..." but I am used to selecting "Update Firmware" for past updates. If you're like me, just make sure you select the right one.

    Cool! I had to do it several times, but eventually it did pick up on the update. Updating now. Thanks.

    I tried it a couple of more times last night and it finally worked and I got the update. One strange thing after it completed I started getting random garbage texts which I finally attributed to my Airave. Once I turned off my phone, restarted it and then rebooted my Airave everything was cool.

    Was hoping this little update would fix my connection issues but #sigh# it hasn't. Maybe with JB.

    Have you tried removing the battery for a few mins then reinstalling it? If you haven't try that.

    Got FI27 OTA this morning during our little rain event nicknamed Sandy. So far, so good. Hopefully all is well for everyone on East Coast.

    Since I received the update my battery has been draining at sometimes 5% in 1 minute of use. I did a factory reset to see if it would help, but not at all. I installed CPU SPY and something is keeping it awake. I don't understand because I reinstalled all my apps directly from the Play Store to hopefully not have the same issues others had when they first pushed out ICS. How can I find out what is killing my battery now? Thanks in advance.

    You cannot install the update with a non-stock kernel/recovery on your phone. You're going to have to flash FI27 manually via Odin.
