Reboot ur phone from time to time. It will get better. They have to fix some features eventually. After any upgrade ,its always good to reboot the phone by taking off the battery. Hope it works for u.
After the update my GS2 is constantly locking up, it freezes for over 30 seconds sometimes when trying to switch between applications or even within an application. When trying to save an email address froma recent email, it locks up and crashes. Looks like this update still has A TON of bugs that need to be fixed.
IS there anyway to get he old version back, i tried twice already to restore my SG2 but it wont be restored. the ICS doesnt do for me. my screen keep flashing all the time while being on sleep mode, wifi connection doesnt work properly, it wont allow Syncronization features. I was sceptical about it ,i should have trusted my instinct and not upgraded it. Hope they come up with sone solutions.
t989 gs2 , 12 Jun 2012More stable. I had same rom. Apart from the bloatware its much smoother with official rom.It runs kinda slow, for instance when i am im Settings and wanna go back to the mainsreen,i simply hot the homekey,then theres like 5to7sec delay before the homescreen to display, the keylight wont stay on ,it freezes sometimes after downlaoding some apps,when dialing its kinda slow too, some features are kinda cool and useful but i like the old version better,its faster and easier to manage. Not really worth it. REmember everytime u upgrade a software, theres always some losing and gaining,its just a matter of personal satisfaction.
DON'T DO IT! Lost use of brightness slider. Lost use of Launcher Pro. Lost use of email app. Capacitive button light won't stay on, even after changing settings. It is much smoother, but I've lost too much. I knew this would happen. #shouldagottaiphone

I believe any official ROM flash will cause loss of root. Be extra safe and back up everything with ClockworkMod. Then re-root phone or revert to Darkside.
I helped the GF do this last night on her T-Mobile S2... It takes freaking forever. Expect bloatware on your PC from Kies and on your phone from T-Mobile.
But at least it is the ICS promised when she bought the phone 2 months ago. Home page(s) on the phone slammed to their version of what icons you need. You will have to redo everything you had set up...
Along with ICS you get WiFi calling and some other enhanced functionality.
Better speed and response in the UI. Some reporting better battery life. (LOL - it is probably too early to say that!)
Use USB cable to get update through Kies. Kies also adds function of plug and play support for syncing phone with desktop: contacts, music, pics, vidz...
Overall end result = nice. :)
Execution of how to get the ICS update (upgrade, actually) = poor and not well documented.
Best of luck T-Mobile peeps.
I'm already using DARKSIDE ICS 4.0.4 ROM for TMOB Galaxy S 2.What if I update to the official one?Who has the idea?
Because this is Android, I'm scared as to what this will f*ck up on my device.
Im glad to see that Tmobile is not trting to be greedy like the other top 3 greedy fucks and just let their customers have the update.
My Galaxy S II's CSC is I9100TPAKI2 and PCode is GT-I9100LKLTPA. Any idea when will I receive the ICS update ? Thanks !
wow really late.
i would restore the phone and then update or update then restore
Why so late for them I enjoying the GS2 with Android 4.0.3 for a weeks now and already remove the Samsung UI for Nova Launcher Prime. Now is fast and pretty.
I'm so surprise my benchmark is now 4080 almost as fast as the HTC One X.
