    That's a tough question now that I think about it. I would say keep an eye out to see when the Verizon Galaxy comes out (Which is probably the case); or, really soon as Google said that it would be a few weeks after the release of the Galaxy. So not sure if that's all around IE being that the Galaxy is out else where; or, if they meant when the Verizon one comes out; or, if thy mean when your country gets the Galaxy that countries S will get it weeks after. Or, Xmas.

    One would think that Google would push forward to release it to the NS4G considering how many times now that the Galaxy Nexus has been postponed. I do understand though with the issues they are having with the Galaxy Nexus I would wait to release it also as Google and Verizon have done due to the software and network issues it is having.

    However the NS4G is still a very reliable device and since they are having those problems with the Galaxy Nexus it would only make common sense to try and get ICS out to the NS4G as soon as possible, but this is just wishful thinking. As it has been said time after time, it will come once Google makes the announcement.

    There are no issues with ICS itself - the delay on the GNex is either due to network or device issues. ICS issues on the GNex has nothing to do with the NS4G. But no, I don't see Google dropping ICS for us before the GNex is released. The GNex was promised as the first ICS device, and yes, it's already been launched internationally so technically Google has held up their end, but I believe they'll treat the US the same. If anything, it just means more testing time, which is always good.

    There were rumors recently that Google employees were testing ICS for the Nexus S. That doesn't necessary mean anything as Sprint has to approve any updates for our device which takes more time.

    Sprint does not need to approve any updates since our device because it is a "pure" Google phone.

    Sorry, that's not the case. CDMA carriers test and confirm all device updates prior to pushing them.

    Well that's just semantics now. Yea, they are going to make sure it works, clearly. But, they don't have to approve the actual build persay.

    I think that's a misconception people have on the nexus line.

    I never said there was an issue with ICS, but with the software vs hardware on the Galaxy Nexus. Plus I said it would be wishful thinking to have it out to the NS4G already. I also stated that it has to do with the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus. I am well aware that the device has launched in other countries.

    Definitely agree with more testing but how long is too long for testing and how much time do you buy Verizon to get their version on the market for the public to purchase before releasing ICS to the NS4G or any other device capable of handling ICS.

    ICS was announced in October along with the GN, there has never been a TRUE set date on when VZ would actually sell the GN so once again how long till Google makes the move to push to other device since VZ does not appear to be moving too fast at getting the NG out to market.

    As with many others I am running a Custom ICS rom and must say that it has been awesome experience but it is still lacking one item that I would like to see how it really reacts to and that is having 4g services on my device. I am fine for now running just 3g services but still if you have 4g in the area why not use it? ICS runs much smooth and it integrates much better with my company's wifi , plus a ton of other things it just does better than GB.

    Plain simple answer, even if this has been posted already...

    Until Verizon releases the GN they we all will probably be on hold getting ICS filtered down to the Nexus S/NS4G since Google gave Verizon the ball in their court for exclusive rights to releasing the GN in the US carrier market and ICS along with it.

    Better question. When will the other country couter parts of the nexus s get ics. Thatll make a better port.

    I would think their big bad nexus 3 would have ICS throughout the year, only makes sense since that is one of the huge key points. I

    Semantics? Not really. Google makes the update, Sprint tests and approves it for their network. See the Xoom update, the wifi version had the update 2 weeks before Verizon released it.

    I dunno bout u guys, but i already have Ice Cream Sanwich on my Nexus s 4g. And no i didnt get the OTA update, i installed a rom 2 days ago and i have been playing with it since.

    It runs slightly faster than the stock GB, looks nice, and a few extra features like face recognition. Facebook sync is still disabled, and some of my apps do not play nice, like simple calendar, and google wallet.

    The colors on stock gingerbread are better in my opinion (by colors i mean the dark blacks you see in email, phone, contacts. ICS is white and light blue, it does not take full advantage of the AMO LED screen. I think im going to put back the stock rom and wait for the update because it is not ALL that great.... and yes i understand its not the "official ICS UPDATE release" but im sure its VERY similer.

    This was the first time i rooted my phone. It wasnt TOO difficult, but i am a pc and audio\video tech. I lost my pictures and had to re-install my apps. Contacts are saved in gmail so thats all that i really needed to save.

    I'm patiently waiting for some true ics love off those gn too...

    I would assume we will still miss Wimax though, correct?

    Official ICS for the NS4G will have WiMax support, if that's what you're asking..

    Ports off of the gn from Verizon. I would hope an official update for us would include Wimax support, if we see that before they roll out
