It will say "No update available" if you go through the menus on the phone itself and press "check for updates" or whatever there. However if you go to Samsung's website for the sII and download their "Kies" software for your laptop (not the same as Kies Air which came with the phone - a fully functional version) then once that's installed (which also can be a bit of a beyatch, it's not the best software) you simply plug your phone in via USB, it'll perform an online check and see if Ice Cream Sandwich is available - which it is - and will then offer you the chance to upgrade your firmware, which can take about half an hour to an hour. It's well worth it! Worked for me, phone (white I9100P) was really sluggish and disappointing for the first week, then updated and all is groovy. Hope that helps potential Gingerbread leavers. Tom x

So it is an interesting idea with the GS2 to switch from fullHD autofocus to VGA fixfocus recording at night. But then what is the point of having fullHD capability, if you have to downgrade to VGA, like any dumbphone ?
There is probably other options to get fixfocus in GS2, with scenery mode maybe?
Want try Xperia P, heard the Exmor sensor is good at night.

Vodafone i think isnt doing anything about their signal or in their internet connection i should say they d worst network provider in australia and yes telstra is the most most pricey one here.
I bought S2 about a Year Back. It has started giving problems. After i just remove my cell from charging, it does not show that the cell is disconnected from the power supply. Moreover, it keeps on connecting in USB Mode. After sometime, S2 connects to the Voice Command application automatically for around about 20-30 times. I have to either exit the application or restart the phone. This series of actions happens every time i connect it to Charging. @All : Please Suggest what to Do.

hello sirs, Im a fan of galaxy s2....dreamed about this phone on day 1
but there is something that bogs me abit
can anyone confirm is galaxy s2's video recording has this low framerate on low light? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...ature=relmfu
I mean....I have a samsung wave s8500....and it does a pretty good job at night doesnt seem to have a problem with low light, was wondering if this kind of video fps is a standard on the s2?
at least lower the price by 2 to 3 thousands then i assure u tat people buy the mobiles as my friends r saying now the sale is on ur hands
