    Still waiting for ICS here on the east coast.. I've checked it a million times and still nothing. We'll probably get it at 11:59pm tonight with our luck.

    Here.. you can have my update... in my opinion, this OS sucks.. I'm going back to GB as soon as I can...

    Nothing really special about this build other than problems, poor battery life, stupid slide to unlock words, etc, etc...

    Should have kept GB instead of ICS.

    I've had my E4GT less than 2 months and didn't experience ANY of the issues with OTA ICS described on this thread. My question is what has been the ICS thru OTA experience for others who purchased E4GT within the last 30-60 days? Does it matter?

    I am the Galaxy and I approve this message.

    That's interesting. My E4GT is only a couple of months old, a new out of the box replacement after I had HW issues with my old one. I ended up installing less than half the apps I had on my old phone. I've had zero issues and the upgrade has been a great experience.

    Can't be I've had mine since beginning of January and I still don't have the update I've heard if you don't get it you can go to a Sprint store and they will update it for you, I'm not sure if true.

    This is the received update thread, but relax people come to forums for answers & your comment has nothing to do with ics update, & just so you won't complain about my comment, I still don't have ics in Jersey.

    One of the causes of battery problems is the new way to shut down apps.

    In the past you could shut down an app by hitting Back. That no longer shuts down apps. It just pushes them to the background.

    Now you have to shutdown the app by swipping left or right in the task manager (long press on the home key).

    Having Angry Birds, and a bunch of apps in the background is gonna eat the battery.

    I don't think they are really running if they are listed there. I'm surprised how many items stay in that list... If you look in the task manager, they aren't all running.

    Sprint has changed the end date from the 20th to the end of July. So people like me who have not got the update yet still will get it we just have to wait for most 2 weeks.

    As I understand it, the ota does not wipe the Dalvik cache, which is something they recommend in ROM flashing 101. So there may be a correlation between how long you've had your phone and how smoothly the update goes. This also explains why a factory reset clears up lots of the problems, since the factory reset wipes the Dalvik cache.

    I have not seen any update. I live in MD, near Washington, DC. I called Sprint, and they said they can't push, and their stores don't have the update, but gave me the number for Samsung. Samsung said it's automatic with Sprint, at about 20,000 users per day (how many E4GTs are out there total?). They said we have to wait until the end of the month.

    I find it frustrating, since I'd rather buy a different phone on Verizon anyway. I liked my EVO 4G much better, and with the LTE updates, I've been roaming a lot lately (on Verizon) when I should be native Sprint. E4GT generally has poorer signal and data than EVO, too.

    I still have no update. Miami, FL. The only thing I want from ICS is Chrome and new notifications. My phone runs perfectly though right now so I'm in no rush.

    when I updated to ICS, I lost the LED indicator notifications; as the LED does not light up AT ALL... only when on a charger.. No LED for messages, emails, etc...

    I have had the ics update footer about 2 weeks now in the Nashville, 5
    TN area.

    To be entirely honest, I'm not to happy with the ics update for sprint. Here are a couple things i just cannot stand...

    1. It had really slowed my phone down. Not sure why, but internet, anything that requires typing hangs a lot!

    2. Why does the wallpaper cropping give me a landscape crop box? I mean, the phone sets up in portrait NOT landscape.

    3. We still do not have an editable notification bar, i have tried the apps (super status bar, status bar +) and both either force quit, encounter errors that shut them down, or don't always show over the default even when everything in the program says it should.

    If anyone knows how to go back to GB without rooting, i would love to know how.

    That's it so far, if anyone had any suggestions on any of these issues, I'm listening...
