    I love it! I sprung for the International Version in December which is a fantastic phone! When the ATT version came out I picked it up on launch day to try it out for 30 days. The LTE makes up for a lot of bloat and changes for the International. Overall a great screen! And the Bluetooth is excellent on both. My ATT GNote finally works with Bluetooth like it should with my car and Jawbone. I do not know what happened to the skyrocket, but it looks like it will be getting the boot soon! Once thing on the ATT Gnote is the battery life is not where I expected. I am struggling to get 14 hours. I expected less battery than the International but it i a tad less than I expected.
    If you still have the international version, sell it to me.

    Wonder if they'll jump from 2.3.5 to 2.3.6 or just go straight to ICS?

    At this point given the failed nature of the last update attempt, I think they scrapped it and are going to go straight to ICS

    I'm at 35% battery life after over 22hour of moderate usage. The update did seem to improve my battery life.

    Got my update to 2.3.6 today. Wasn't a push, did a manual check for software updates. Was really hoping it was ICS, but no luck.

    Just updated mine...2.3.6 also.
    Only thing I've noriced so far is the icon for the phone on the main taskbar looks different. Not solid green, checkered box pattern.

    Ok, so no ics but at least a new icon. Yeah!(yes sarcasm)

    Ok, so maybe I'm dreaming. Just changed back to the live wallpaper with the beach weather. Don't see the lines anymore.

    Seriously, a software update can improve graphical issues like this?? Definitely notice an improvement.

    I updated yesterday. So far the only things I've noticed are the new lock screen, a new incoming call screen, new "Phone" icon, and new "Memo" icon.

    ...thus far all seems well, and that includes the battery life. It seems the same to me. But, the weekend will truly decide that

    So, did you get your new\newer Skyrocket?

    Indeed I did! Yes a new SkyRocket! Man I played with a Note at the AT&T candy store. Damn nice...I'm a little afraid my boss will think he is paying me too much with that Big A_ _ phone though...lol. That said it felt really good and very snappy. My old SkyRocket had an issue from the start that was really bugging me and that was that the screen literally looked like it was distorted a little and actually curved, as if someone had had it in their back pocket while they sat down a lot. This was mainly noticable when in the car and with the sun shining on it...thought I might be imagining this but just kept nagging at me...well once I got my shiny new one today I realized it wasn't my imagination...this one didn't have the issue and the screen was noticably more perfect and flat. I love it...worth the up charge...and now I have a 1 year warranty. The guy at the AT&T store tried to sell me "enhanced tech support"...for $10 a month...guess he doesn't know about this forum.

    I did the update on my Skyrocket and it completed without a hitch.
    However, now the touch keys (menu, home, back, search) are not lighted when I turn the phone on.
    I checked in settings and it is set to always on. If I check always off, then check always on the keys light up until I turn the phone off. Turn it back on and the keys are not lighted.
    So who do I report this to, is it AT&T or Samsung?

    its been 1 day 1 hour and 53 minutes since i took my phohe off the charger. the battery now is at 25% the display time 1hr 25min. voice calls 29 min. The phone was on ATT LTE network for all this time (not connected to wifi) I'm running a live galaxy wallpaper by Xllusion (seems to have zero effect on the battery), weatherbug updates every 30 mins. and pulse app every 6 hours. I must admit though 1hr 25min is a very light use but one full day is a very impressive result. this update definitely improved the battery.

    Will a rooted phone be able to take the update? Bought the phone last night and rooted right away. Still bone stock.

    Is there another way to update it besides on the phone itself? It said there was an update but the server was busy and now I cannot check again for 23 hours. I used to have a BB and of course could use desktop manager or app loader to update the phone. My phone is not rooted either.

    go to settings applications running services hit All and find Device Management. clear the data it then go back to update check, you should be able to run it again without waiting for 23 hrs.

    Yes, It is still telling me to wait.

    Edit: And under running services it does not list "device management" anymore but still says I have to wait 19 hrs.
