Dear Samsung Galaxy Lovers,
I am a user of SGS since Oct 2010. I love this phone. I can say that the SGS is my best phone ever. I used Iphone, Nokia, Son-er, even Phillips, but for me, Samsung is the best.
I am planning to buy Samsung Galaxy Note. In addition of my need for work.
Anyways, I have up grade my SGS several times. The latest was 2.3.3. It worked well at first, but lately, in the last months, I experience several bad things. The phone is often lag, slow responses, and some times even freeze. I often took off the baterai. It just happened when i wrote this messages. This is the second time I wrote since the first time, my SGS freezed and i unfortunately had to unplug the baterai.
Is it possible to up grade to ICS? Since I heard that Samsung is not up grading the ICS for SGS. Any good applications that I could install or up grade in order to maximize the capacity of the Phone?
Any idea for solving my problems? Thanks for SGS lovers to help me to solve these little problems.

Good evening everyone.

I'm amazed nobody has commented on my previous post regarding the 2.3.6 JW4 upgrade. You don't have to be scared about flashing your phones, it's very easy to do.
I've been running it a few days now and it's very smooth and quick and battery life is terrific (currently on three days use on a single charge).
Good evening everyone.

Ray thank you so much for helping me out. I have successfully installed ICS 4.0.3 in my SGS. I absolutly agree that 2.3.3 had more features than ICS. However, ICS is better in terms of graphics UI. Font has become more crisp and pictures look sharper than before. I dont know if I am wrong but battery time has improved after putting ICS in my phone.
Thank you for helping me out. Stay blessed.

Like you, I have also installed Gingerbread v2.3.6 VP and can report that it is the best thing that has ever happened to the SGS.
It is blazingly fast, never hangs, and every app runs perfectly.
The problems you are reporting suggest that you either used a corrupted ROM or that you didn't install it correctly.
I am based in the UK and upgraded my Samsung ROM to this so called value pack.
It freezes all the time, when changing the main panels even keyboard. Applications crash all the time or hangs for a long time Yahoo Mail, Viber, WhatsApp, Pulse are all unusable.
I do not know if there is any way to be polite about this.
Samsung we asked for ICS but you gave us more bloatware that made the phone even worse. Please do not burden us with your incompetence !!!
how about battery life ? is it good ? how long i can play games or use apps ?
Anonymous, 29 Mar 2012dear okay is not so much change :-) but 2.2 hangs too much :( but brother galaxy s puls is so ... morethe s plus will always be faster as it has a 1.4 ghz processor. I know exactly what you mean, after using a 1.4 device then the sgs doesnt seem as fast. If you have a samsung service centre nearby then they will update the firmware if they can.(Good to hear that nokia provides a good working gps ,vid callsl. I have never used the gps.
AnonD-13788, 29 Mar 20122.3 isnt really much of a change to 2.2. I barely noticed a difference:dear okay is not so much change :-) but 2.2 hangs too much :( but brother galaxy s puls is so faster than my device :( my device shown me force applictions :(
