The O2 Gingerbread version has just a bootloader and an O2 App. Odin and Titanium backup here we go!!
You will find the bloatware to a minimum and what you do find is the apps which most O2 customers will download themselves. Bench-marked roughly 24% better than the S2 on Gingerbread too.
Still no ICS for sim free devices though last week supposed to be the week we all go it. So they said it will be rolled out on the 19th commencing week of March now they say they are still testing it. WHAT?? for those who wants to let they steam off here is an official Samsung page on FB http://www.facebook.com/SamsungUK/posts/416100681740301
My S2 will not be updated until the network's branded phones bought in their shops are ready to be updated too. Obviously the networks have worked out a deal to bring back business to their shops for android phones by threatening not to sell the manufacture's phones unless they get the same release date for their software updates.
I was just going to ask the same thing.. i work for tescomobile and will keep an ear out but if any1 knows please tell....

ICS is far slickier in S2 than in Nexus. But the downside: not all apps are compatible. Samsung needs to quickly open a 'customer care' department. if they have one already, then they need to rethink their motto.
Does anyone in the know, know if this firmware update is available through OTA as well as Kies? Also, is it available through Kies for Mac too?
Updated about 2hrs ago. only bloatware i can find is 1 O2 icon. Other than that seems ok.
and the netherlands when are they comming!!!!! i hate 2.3.5 and cant upgrade to 2.3.6. also
