Ics Upgrade On Unlocked Orange France Samsung Galaxy S2

I think i've worked out that rooting is not what i am after, and i think i have determined that my phone is unlocked but not unbranded, but i'm still short of understanding what i need to do to upgrade my gs2 to ics 4. 0.

1. Unlocked: i have an orange france gt-i9100, for which i purchased a plan. After three months i was allowed, via a tool on their website, to unlock it so that i can put my (non-french) sim in it. This works fine.

2. Unbranded: the phone came with a bunch of orange. Fr applications and widgets on it, which i would generally prefer not to have and just have native android (or samsung's own additions) if possible.

I'm not sure in this instance, where i should expect to get an upgrade from - samsung, orange, or? I have downloaded and installed kies with the idea that this might identify availability of an upgrade for me. It has found an available update.

About phone:
Android 2. 3. 3
Baseband i9100bvkg2
Kernel 2. 6. 35. 7-i9100bvkg2-cltest_i9100bvkg2 root@dell127#2
Build number gingerbread. Bvkg2
Finally, using check for updates on the about phone menu says none are available.

1 Text Message To Read Notification - Ics Issue - Samsung Galaxy S2

Just moved over from the easy life of blackberry to android (not even been a week yet) and all was going well till i upgraded to ics. I have a gt-l9100 running 4. 0. 3 the issue is, i receive a new text message, i read and reply to it yet i still see '1' in a circle over the message icon at the bottom of the screen. I went in to the messaging section in applications and cleared the cache and that just created more issues (all sms failed to send from then on), i rebooted the device and the icon was gone and i was able to send sms again. I did try to search for a solution, but with no luck.

Cannot Disable " Data Background Services " After Upgrade To Ics - Samsung Galaxy S2

Since upgrading to ics (ice cream sandwich) with my galaxy s2, one of the changes is you can no longer disable "data background services". When i bought my phone a couple of months ago i was told in the o2 shop to disable data background services to enhance the battery life. I did this and the battery lasted really well as i only enabled the service when i needed to. This facility has now gone and i am finding my battery life really quite poor.

I don't use the mobile network for internet as have wifi at home and work so my phone is connected to that. I notice it must be doing things in the background as i get alerts for facebook, twitter etc so i presume it is working hard in the background and that is what using the battery. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how i can improve the battery life. It is really annoying that this has gone with the upgrade as it certainly made a big difference.

Motorola Droid X - Missing Applications After Upgrade

Just upgraded to 2. 2. Process was pretty simple, worked without any noticiable issues. After upgrade, i noticed applications that were part of 2. 1 are no longer part of 2. 2. Personally, i wish they removed facebook, but what happened to the application called "corporate"? This application let me view the corporate exchange gal for contacts not local on my phone. Why was this removed?

No Support For Bluetooth Streaming Or A2dp After Ics Upgrade

Can anyone tell me how i can get my sgs2 to stream audio back to my pc or even get it to connect to a vw golf's bluetooth hfs, without it stuttering and disconnecting. Before the "upgrade" with gingerbread 2. 3. 4 this connected & streamed to the pc without any problem & connected to the car without problem. Bluetooth usb dongle devices on pc can be either v2 or v3, they are not plugged in at the same time, it's either one or other, both devices are a2dp (stereo) capable. I don't want to risk flashing the phone via odin as it's under warranty and with my luck i'll brick it, like i did with a crappy nokia.

Gt-i9100p Wont Update To Ics - Samsung Galaxy S2

I decided to make an account here as my provider (o2) has proved unsuccessful in helping solve this issue, hope you guys are smarter than they are! For some reason when running kies software my phone will not update to ics, it claims the latest firmware is already installed (i current have gingerbread 2. 3. 5). Ive been on live chat with o2, i told them my csc number and they told me my phone can update to ics so i dont know why it wont do it. Ive got the latest kies software and have tried it on both my pc and laptop but it just wont work. Has this happened to anyone else and is there a solution?

Will it be the same after the new update?

Ics - Roaming Indication On Home Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

Recently upgraded my galaxy s2 to ics using a guide at All appears to work fine apart from one thing - sat at home, my signal indicator shows that i am roaming and a warning notification reports "you have lost data connectivity because you left your home network with data roaming turned off". To clarify, i'm at home, a three network customer and never saw the roaming indicator at anytime before in the uk. I also have data roaming turned off for the usual obvious reasons. Has anyone encountered this and does anyone have any ideas how i can remedy this situation?

Signal Improves After Upgraded To Ics - Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket

Well our house hold has two skyrockets. One just updated to the leaked ics and one on gingerbread. And lemme tell you, i have been doing some testing and i have noticed two major improvements. Number one, my signal on the ics is double sometimes than on gingerbread! And the battery is also slightly better. I put the phones side by side, right on the couch and watched the signal meter for like fifteen minutes and the phone running ics was always way better signal, very interesting.

Access Gmail & Exchange Folders - Ics Social Hub - Samsung Galaxy S2

Ok ics is installed and seems to be (generally) running well. Some of the new features i like about the ics social hub like deleting messages from the list screen without having numerous button presses. Other things like it always opens in feeds and i can't access my folders in my accounts really suck!

As i use gmail and exchange mail and want push all from one app i am stuck using the hub, so no other apps won't do the same within one app. Anyone managed to get the hub to open on messages rather than feeds? More importantly, anyone know how on earth i can access my gmail folders and my exchange folders?

Considering Upgrade To Samsung Galaxy Nexus From Htc Incredible

I have had an htc incredible (adr6300) for about two years now, and i think it's about time for me to jump on to the 4g bandwagon. As is usually the case with anyone even remotely tech savvy, i'm hesitant to actually "pull the trigger" on a new device for fear of picking the wrong one, or missing out on the bigger, better device coming out in the imminent future.

I understand that if i was just to wait for the "next awesome device" to launch, i'd never get a new phone since they're always coming out with new ones. But i'd really like some peace of mind when it comes to picking a 4g android vzw device from the current market. From what i've read, the galaxy nexus looks to be quite a solid phone. I like the idea of ics, as well as the potential for software updates not taking forever-and-a-half as it did with my incredible. And based on friends in my area with 4g devices, the service is available in many of the locations i spend time in.

Would you say that going from an incredible to a gnex is a positive jump? Rooting is important to me, if for nothing more than the ability to appease my short attention span when it comes to software in general. I don't need a physical keyboard - between swype and swiftkey i've become accustomed to touchscreen keyboards with no problem. That said, i have heard the rumors of the htc incredible 4g - though i'm not convinced it's worth waiting for because 1), who knows when it will actually be released, and 2), there's no guarantee that it will be able to be rooted.

Right now i'm considering the galaxy nexus vs the motorola razr maxx. The battery life on the razr maxx is of course awesome, but as long as the gnex is at least equal to what i'm getting on my incredible now, it's fine. I'm rarely in a situation where i am using my phone heavily and have no access to a charger. All in all, i suppose i've already made my mind up for the gnex, but i guess i'm really just looking for people to validate my opinion or give me some first hand experience that might sway me away from the gnex, if necessary.
