i use S2 and my wife use ArcS, both same service provider from Singapore starhub, ArcS already roll out ICS but S2 not? Samsung only think of make new model everyday but not think of support for older phone :-(
Hi all. Just updated S2 UK sim free ics.
How do you assign a name to the phone, so it shows when you are bluetoothing etc?
How do you assign a password to the phone? If you do not use the lock screen, it seems now that anyone can go in, set up a lock screen and lock you out of your own phone? You used to need a password to set the lock screen in gingerbread.
Many thanks in advance.
Hi, im using Galaxy sII, recently i have updated to ICS 4.0.3. i really have a big issue with ICS, battery backup lost and applications force close or messangers log out automatically. Any one please advice to roll back to previous version 2.3.6 it was really perfect.
ICS will not be perfect at first that's why sammy people want to know the user's experiences. Time to time they will update there version. Please address what the bugs have you experienced if you have so. It looks like lies if you don't have user experience and have just heard it from other people. Use the gadget for a couple of times then comment.
Right now, I don't have any problem. Actually I'm on a rooted phone and running a custom ICS. It's faster than my GB gustom rom.

The thing is I figured it out and many of my fellow brothers is still facing it. U might have got one from your brother in law who works in samsung and ordered one of those which is absolutely flawless. We r not as lucky as u. Thats the ugly truth my friend. Do some research and please read previous comments.
thanks mate, have you actually upgraded to ICS,or you have something against this version!!
I start to doubt you even own a galaxy s2 mate!
you are not clear at all about the exact problem, and just refer to it as bugs!! and minor issues which even the old version had!!
so I am really not clear about your objectives, or question!!
also if you have gs2, and happy with the phone (regardless of which version of software) then WHY do you have problem with my name? I am gs2 fan because I love the phone and it has nothing to do with ICS on board or not!!
be clear and let people help you here! instead of attacking samsung and people , that wouldn't solve your problem.
TC, my good mate, how are you? remember me?
6 MONTHS PAST since I got this phone, and EVERY SINGLE day I enjoy, and can' put it down, and still learning something new,
I discovered a new world behind this technology like no others,
what is your opinion on ICS, and have you actually upgraded yourself?
my battery problem completely solved tried what I suggested yesterday, 24 hours of medium use and 48 hours of light use, its just excellent!
sabir, I am not sure what you talking about, ICS has absolutly no problem at all, great upgrade, which has transformed the phone compeletly, seen it on my firends handset in action in Germany and he abolutly loved it, I suggest check your setting and your phone, its not ICS mate, its your phone.
guys, what is a rush about ICS
let it run for 3-4 months at least, then by that time all the problems will be sorted, and you will have a excellent version which works well
However I haven't heard ICS to have any problems or bugs as someone mentioned here, it works smooth and its excellent, from what I heard from friends.
does anyone know when the OFFICIAL ICS will be launched through kies in UK?
Please let me know, also please comment about my suggestion about battery, has anyone tried my suggestions from yesterday????
All of u guyz please stop ur expression of impatience for having ICS. Never put your device on with this coz it doesnt worth it. its full of bugs like GTA 4. It will start making u worry about ur valuable device. Just wait for the next upgrade.
Hey guys someone pls answer.....
Anyone knows what type of custom user agent string to use so that when you share in fb or tweet in twitter it would displayas 'via Samsung Galaxy S2'??
Hi all, here i am to express my opinion with great and deep regret.U know whats this all about. its the evil ICS that just ruined my glossy galaxy. Seems like some drunked fu**n bi**h programmed this ics which is why its acting crazy. I cant believe how worse a firmware can be !!! I just lost my regular cellular activity completely. Network always play hide and seek with the receiver , mobile networks are not recognized most of the times. I DONT LOVE MY SGS2 NEMORE LIKE I DID BEFORE ONLY BECAUSE OF ICS. My screaming is against all those unconscious and inefficient samsung engineers and programmers. Please guyz come on. its our thousand dollar handset. U've gotta find some way to either let us roll back to gingerbread or release a "non-upgraded" ICS without all those BUGZZZZZ......
ics is buggy. all those who havnt got ics, no need to get restless, have patience and ics will come to you. even i was being inpatient for not getting ics, but after updating i realized that 2.3.6 was much better than buggy ics.
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2012100% guarranteed go for Galaxy S2 it wont let you down for sure, base on my experinced on this... moreUntrue. It's actually an awful phone with an awful, clunky operating system. If you fancy a phone that crashes and freezes constantly (to be told by your phone provider that there's nothing wrong with it. Jeez...imagine how awful it would be to use if there WAS something wrong with it...), then go ahead. Worst mistake I made.
CCChow, 25 Apr 2012Battery life is the biggest problem for Samsung S2. I need to have battery charger ready in ca... moreDear ccchow, instead of keeping chargers, please buy extra original batteries with dock charger. I have 2 Anker 1900 mA batteries and 1 dock charger. And one same original battery that came with mobile. So I have two extra batteries at the same time fully charged. If we are using smartphone then it is joke that we keep data off, no live wall paper, low screen mode etc.........
Hope you understand. You can take only one 2000 mA samsung extra battery that will be enough. Please enjoy this phone.
