    Just go to a Sprint store and have them do it for you. No need to wait for your home internet to get up and running.

    Now the phone keeps opening google search when you dont click it and acts like it freezes for a second, anyone else have this issue and/or a fix? Thanks!

    I was having a lot of difficulty getting the update....so, I used a different USB cord and bam, the Simple Download tool mentioned above worked perfectly.
    Jelly bean is freaking awesome! It's like I bought a new phone!!

    as my phone shows Lloyd, the word "Downloading", and the phrase "Do not turn off target!!", my downloader shows the following - i am not sure it's doing anything:

    i am now on the screen on my laptop that says "1. Plug the USB cable into the phone and PC", and giving me options of "exit", "back", and "next". except "next" isn't lit up. it doesn't "feel right". is this normal?

    i suppose a clue is that in the bottom right, it says "disconnected" and the bottom left it says "detect port..."

    the example on samsung says "com5" on the bottom right, and "ready" on the bottom left.

    this is going to end badly i believe. :o/

    You may need to install the current USB drivers

    you may be right.

    i went to bed last night, and just let things happen, fully expecting my battery to be drained overnight.

    instead, the phone just restarted itself at some point, sans update, and charged up.

    then when i plugged in this morning, it downloaded drivers.

    came to work to update, but alas, i don't have the right admin priviledges to install the updater, so i must wait until i get home tonight.

    Treesham - don't plug the usb cable in until the slide tells you. I believe this is what messed up my prior failed attempts. Good luck

    Does anyone have a download link to the official update.exe file? I'm on a computer with no admin privileges and unfortunately can't install the Simple Upgrader.

    Thanks for any help.

    Same for me. It is a shame that Kies is such crap. I am downloading the simple installer now.

    Really liking it so far.

    However, haptic feedback seems to be greatly decreased when I'm responding to a text message. I went into settings and put it to max. If I click on the home, menu, back, or search buttons its much more pronounced than if I'm responding to at text. Is there another setting somewhere other than in the 'sound' settings?

    Non-rooted JB is better than rooted ICS IMO. Plus, you can always root the JB.

    Got the text yesterday that jellybean is available on VM! Might just be select hand sets. My buddy has the HTC Evo 4g and said he didn't get a text from VM about it. Hmmm.

    Is it? I thought I would go through and see how many people have what bad things to say about it first. My only problem with ICS is bad battery drain! I am on it a bit throughout the day (interwebs) and I only get 1 our 2 bars at home but I turn off 3g and turn on wi-fi at home. All I have to go by is my old phone (VM LG Optimus Elite) that got amazingly slow drain time. Sites this look ok? http://i.imgur.com/W2cUEgh.png
