    Got notice yesterday and upgraded via Kies. Now the "resident" email app wont display the emails (Gmail app works fine though). Any way to repair? Hope I dont have to reinstall ICS; not exactly tech savy.

    Edit: krap! Just realized this was a OTA thread. Can anyone direct me to where I should post this issue?

    I manually did the update this morning. I switched to the pure ics launcher using sprint id but I noticed that it makes the homescreen wallpaper zoom. The lockscreen wallpaper is fine. Doesn't so that when the touchwiz launcher is used. I also noticed that. There's no option in gtalk to insert smileys via the menu versus putting in the symbols myself. Not sure if that's a bug or if its how the new gtalk is suppose to be.

    I don't like pure ICS but that is really way you can truly enjoy most of the new features that come with the upgrade.

    I haven't been impressed with this upgrade at all.

    I'm curious to know what are you not impressed with? This is way better than Gingerbread lol.

    You really don't back your contacts up with your gmail? That's failing to utilize a built in feature meant to save you heartache and hassle. Hate to be the one to tell you, but if they were only on your internal memory, they're probably gone. Reboot your handset if you haven't yet and hope for the best, but you're likely going to be s.o.l.

    Manual upgrade complete, thanks to qbking77's YouTube video. Seven apps updated after the upgrade, including Google Maps, Gmail, Sprint Telenav). I'm loving Ice Cream Sandwich! My favorite feature so far: the revamped web browser with a checkbox to change to Desktop vice having to type about:useragent every time.

    Just manually upgraded and switched to Sprint ID immediately to enable stock ICS. Never thought Sprint ID would EVER come in handy, but it did for once. Now I'll never touch it again. But I do approve of the manual upgrade (not that my approval matters or anything, lol). But seriously, it's super easy and I had absolutely no troubles at all. I instantly love my phone again!

    I just finished updating manually. I started out by downloading the zip from QBKing77's video straight to my phone, used Astro file manager to move it and rename it, and it wouldnt update. So I fired up my laptop and downloaded it from the link here and didnt rename it and it worked. I did have to clear the data on my Swype, which sucks because I had a lot of saved words there. Gmail and everything else seems to work well. Battery life...we will see.

    I love most of ICS, as I am using it on my HP TouchPad (in conjunction with webOS), but I dont like the fact that I cant make folders in the app drawer like you can in Go Launcher Pro. That may be one of the few things that cause me to ditch the stock ICS launcher and go elsewhere.

    Here you go -- How to manually update to Official FF18 ICS AND ROOT - xda-developers

    For me, I did not have to rename the file, just have it on the root of my external SD card. Obvioulsly, YMMV. Hope that helps you out.

    Yup, I deleted my word library. Now I'm back to spell checking like a third grader. I got my Swype to work on ICS though. Thanks!

    The manual update takes all of 5min, ppl are waiting for reviews on this that and the other thing. Good luck. If there are any "real" issues, a update update will be sent out within a few days anyway...

    Here in the NYC metro and haven't received the ICS update notification...system update menus continue to come up empty.

    That said, I have fully functional apps no longer available on Google Play. Will they survive an ICS update?
