    Battery life has been pretty good for me. Took it off the charger at 8pm Sunday night and just now put it on the charger this morning at 8. After 36hrs I had 30% of battery life left. I'm on wifi 99% of the time and at my work they had ATT run the signal boosters thru out the building so I have a strong signal all day at work.

    I'm just using TW. I have fancy widgets installed and it updates the weather every hour. Gmail just refreshes when I open it up or refresh it manually. Now those 36 hrs was very light use for me, I had about 2.5 hrs of screen time. But during that screen time I was playing a mixture angry birds space, words with friends, scramble with friends and drawing with friends for about 75% of that screen time.

    Ic. I currently have all of my setup the same as when I was still on 2.3.6. But my phone barely last 5 hours before I need to start charging again. Not to mention the overheating and the random app crashes every hour or so. But I guess that is the cost of getting ICS....lol

    I'm new to the android world and I have a technical question for y'all .... I have a Samsung galaxy s2 that was rooted when I bought it. They said it was running ice cream sandwich. I just received this text:

    AT&T Free Msg: Samsung Galaxy S II upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is now available! The OS update supports enhanced performance, user interface and other device improvements. Open the link from your PC (not your phone), and follow the instructions: http://forums.androidcentral.com/e?l...token=0KWOilDH.

    Should I do the update? And how do I tell what version I am running now? I do know that when the phone boots up, there is a screen that says SHOshock2 or something like that. Any help would be appreciated, since I am a noob to this. I must say though, I do prefer this phone waaaaayyyyyyy more than the iPhone 4 that I swapped from.

    I installed ICS last night and I am getting very different results on my battery life compared to my co-worker. He's at 23+ hours right now and still has 47% left on his battery. I am at 11+ hours and I only have 28% left on my battery. We both have Juice Defender set up exactly the same. I do have my wifi and bluetooth on (which he does not) and I am not connected to wifi and have not been for over 6 hours.

    So far I am not loving the battery life for me and I wish I had the battery life my co-worker is getting with his phone. But this is my first day with it so I am hoping to get better results after fully draining the battery and recharging. My co-worker received 20 hours yesterday before his battery depleted and he is getting much better results on his second day.

    That's not the cost of ICS. A factory reset will likely fix all of those problems. Sometimes updates make things screwy if you don't, although sometimes for others it will work fine.

    Is it worth upgrading from the stock 2.3.4?

    it took me about two 2 hours and finally did what you said here thanks
    From xda. I followed this to a T and after about 20 mins I was all set. Works flawlessly.

    Well, first, before I realised I could do it, I downloaded the newest version of Kies because I got all kinds of errors when i did a kies software update from the older version. I had to uninstall it from my computer and install the newest one. I got it from here:
    Transfer, Sync & Manage Music, Movies, Photos, Contacts and Calendars with Kies

    btw, I did all of this with the phone completely stock - restored to unrooted KH7, then did OTA KK6 upgrade. NOt sure if it would matter since you will start in download mode anyway.

    after completely finishing installing kies (and it took a while) i shut it down and then made sure the computer detected the phone in different modes (usb debugging on And off, and in download mode.) it will install the drivers when you connect it in each mode.

    now, WITHOUT the phone connected, start the new Kies and went to the tools menu. Chose Firmware Upgrade and Initialization. It asked for the serial number and model number that I got from the sticker under the battery. Now, put the phone in download mode (either with a jig, or holding vol. up + vol down and inserting usb cable).

    After you enter the serial number and model number it should say that the latest recovery version is the LE5 (the new firmware). Now, just leave the phone connected and keep clicking through with OK. It should download the firmware, and when it is finished downloading you will see the green bar moving across the phone when it is installing.
