    Default Jelly bean

    Anyone know when our device will be getting jelly bean? I know it's official now but I was wondering if any insiders have any idea on the date and how far along it is.

    Thanks

    Thank you

    This is for the TMobile version of the s2 or international? It didn't say.

    Again thank you.

    I think both..... Because when we got the ics... Samsung said Galaxy S2 will get the ics update. Samsung didn't say that tmobile GS2 will get the update. But we did. I think Samsung said Galaxy S2 in general...! So I think this statement apply with the jelly bean update too. and you're welcome! Hope this helps....

    Slow and lagging?? Did you updated your phone to latest ICS 4.0.4? Mine runs like a butter... I did had some force closes on 4.0.3 but it fixed the problem when I updated to 4.0.4.....

    Try a factory reset. This helped mine quite a bit. But I still get a bit of lag here and there. Plus radio signal is weak and GPS connects pretty slow. Not sure if this was after the ics update or not, but it seems to be pretty consistent. I get a terrible signal in my office which has a lot of concrete around it but other iPhone and HTC users in the office don't have as much of an issue. My phone won't even ring sometimes when I get a call and text messages are random and inconsistent. The signal is poor in my area for the most part but not as bad for other phones.

    Cool. Btw I just rooted mine on the weekend. Not running any roms but just used titanium backup to freeze the bloatware and have noticed a significant difference in speed and smoothness. Apps load faster too.

    Not sure if you are rooted or not.

    Well they try to add value to your experience which is fine if you are able to delete them. But they don't allow this which is really annoying as it slows down your phone and wastes space.

    I would recommend trying it. It was easy.

    Here is the instructions I followed http://galaxys2root.com/t-mobile-galaxy-s2-faq/

    If you are on ics you may be able use the disable feature in your settings/applications.

    I don't believe you have dealt with an update like this before. I have the AT&T variant of the S2 and don't expect to see the update until June. Samsung will always predict an earlier update date. I was told back in 2012 that the Skyrocket would get ICS in January, and ended up waiting till mid July. So my advice is to relax on the update, no matter what some crazy story says online I won't believe we are actually getting the update until somebody recieves a notification. It's just jellybean its not going to make or break your phone, enjoy your phone while you can. The more you worry the longer it will seem for the update to arrive.

    Ah... Thanks for the good advice. I guess I will just sit and relax... Another quick question. Do you think we will get the "Premium Suite"? Cheers.

    Yeah. That's normal. After kies downloads the firmware. The kies automatically shuts off. And you have to little while to make the next message to pop up.

    i had to update kies and then it went through the upgrade process

    just a word of warning, it is a slow process. BE PATIENT!
    sometimes i thought it wasnt doing anything, and it was still downloading/etc.

    its worth it, i like it much better.

    That's true that I have to wait a while after Kies installs the firmware to my pc but when Kies shuts off it doesn't do anything I stared at my screen for 30 minutes and nothing

    Try different PC in your house. I always avoid using laptop when I'm updating my phone. Make sure you have a good WiFi connection and fast computer.

    You got to wait after the pop up page closes... it might take awhile.
