    How do you turn off 4G?
    Data Switch. It's free in the Play Store. Or you can try GoSwitch.

    Crappy battery life, dropped to 58% in 3 hours. Doing nothing special.
    Stupid AT&T Address book splash screen when opening Contacts
    Contacts crash
    Battery life sucks
    Get that "auto update time" message trying to open Contacts
    Battery life bites
    Using about 60% memory without restoring any apps or widgets, only running the bloatware
    Tons of lag opening apps.
    Did I mention the *y battery life?
    Wi-Fi constantly uploading/downloading

    I did a wipe this morning and now the Play store shows all my apps in the "Library" but not installed. Go figure. Keep your fingers crossed a quick update corrects it all. I was so looking forward to ICS. LOVE. Love, love it on my Transformer. HATE, Hate, hate it on the GS2S.

    7/17 update:
    Wi-Fi constantly "scanning," despite no selection to scan. Probably explains the constant upload/download
    Even though I synced all calendars, including my Google calendar, most, but not all appointments/entries are being synced.

    I just got off the phone (land line) with AT&T and Samsung. Samsung admits there are issues, one of which is battery draw. They indicated they are 1) aware of the issues, 2) awaiting an update from Google and, 3) when received, will work with AT&T to get it out, most likely via OTA (over the air), ASAP.

    Am just experiencing amazing battery life after the update (I did factory reset after the update). I had to charge by 5pm earlier with GB 2.3.6. Now, I am still left with atleast 50% by 11pm. Its just outstanding. (I make sure I disable wifi when am out of office or home and disable BT when not in use). Try the app tasker, it can help you automate stuff on your phone. (You can download free trial from their website)

    I'm currently unable to use my phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot. I've been able to since 2.3, but since updating it earlier today, I've been unable to access the settings menu. It keeps saying Settings and TwLauncher has stopped and reverts me to the home page upon reboot, even sometimes going so far as to restart my phone.

    Thankyou for doing that ground work. I really hope the fix this issue soon also. I don't know how many skyrocket owners are out there but I hope enough for them to do something. I was so excited to get ics. what a let down. Did they hint about a time period on the fix. I have complained so much if I call again I can get an htc vivid. You think that's a good move or will they fix these issues?

    GPS fails and some text editing bugs. Backspacing would delete something you dont want to be removed.

    You're welcome, Pitrich. Samsung says they are at the mercy of Google. I doubt that is really true. Isn't Android "open source?" Why would Google have to issue an update to software Samsung has manipulated to run on their (and AT&T's) platform?

    At any rate, I will give them a few more days, then decide what I want to do. In the mean time, I've installed "Screen Off and Lock" and "Auto Airplane Mode." Screen Off does the obvious (I have a handy icon on my home page to initiate it) and Auto Airplane Mode can be configured to shut down Wi-Fi when the phone is put to "sleep."

    It flies in the face of having a smart phone, but, in my case, it's that or a dead battery.

    My contacts keep crashing.
    You uninstalled or disabled YP, which is integrated into the Contacts app. That has nothing to do with any bug in ICS.

    My battery life was terrible until I factory reset.

    I really think people should not be allowed to post about "bugs" until they reset their phone. It's pretty much common sense. NO, I didn't want to do it, but we all know how Samsung devices work. If you don't reset, expect issues.

    My phone was draining 1% battery with the screen on and doing nothing on it every 1.5-2 minutes before I factory reset it. Yes, I could literally look at the screen and see it count down. It was that bad. Did a reset and everything is normal now.

    I don't get any keyboard lag. Have SwiftKey, but using stock keyboard cause there's no reason for me to use SwiftKey at the moment (plus it thinks it knows too much and basically causes me to type slower :-( ).

    Can I add that all of a sudden the wifi just stops working, out of the blue. No warning, no message no nothing! It takes about 2 reboots or me toggling on/off several times. Now I have to keep an eye on my phone to make sure it stays connected to wifi WTH!
    For those wondering, yes I did a factory reset and cleared cache before and after the upgrade.

    I updated to ics on my galaxy note and it sucked. Battery life you could watch desintigrate, low notification sounds, UI lag, missing features, forever boot time, decreased or up and down random signal changes. Really??? Tasty ics upgrade like all the reviews talked about???.....FAIL. Was so happy phone was going back the next day to best buy under my insurance. Bought new note. Keepin gingerbread which works amazing compared to that horror. When note 2 comes out, lookin foward to jellybean.

    @n8ter - After you did the factory reset, what did you do next? Do I have to reinstall ICS? Thanks,

    Some of my bluetooth devices are having to pair when I launch programs that use it. However, the system/bluetooth still shows that they are paired. I have one device that will ask to be pair several times. I didn't have these issues with GB.

    I am wondering why Samsung says they are waiting on Google when the leaks have no issues with battery drain. Of course all of the ATT crap is stripped out.....

    All the more reason to stick with my custom rom. It's more stable.

    No it's not, you just have to get used to pressing the buttons correctly. It is quite a pain having to press power and a capacitive button. They should have used Power and Volume down like HTC did on the Vivid. That worked much better. Sony has it as a Long Press power option on the Ion, which is superior to both HTC and Samsung's implementation.
