Vodafone Delays Galaxy S2 ICS Update

April 13th, 2012 by Caroline

There’s some bad news for Samsung Galaxy S2 on Vodafone owners, as the network has just revealed the scheduled ICS update has been delayed.

Spotted on Vodafone’s forum were the disappointing words: “Unfortunately, Samsung have told us this morning that they are unable to make the update available to you as planned.”

However, the delay is not too bad – you’ll be able to install Ice Cream Sandwich goodness on your Galaxy S2 via Samsung’s Kies software tomorrow. If you want to get the ICS update over-the-air you’ll need to wait until next Tuesday, 17th April, though.

The network added, “I know a lot of you, like us, will be disappointed at this last-minute change of plan,” and that it intends to “continue to challenge Samsung to make this available to you as quickly as possible”.

Ice Cream Sandwich software should have been available to Vodafone Galaxy S2 customers today, so if you’re happy to download using Kies at least you only have an extra day to wait – or three for the wireless option.

And although Galaxy S2 owners on Three and O2 already have the update, Vodafone users can take some comfort in the fact the ICS software won’t hit them last. Poor SIM-free Galaxy S2 owners are at the back of the ICS queue.

Have you got Ice Cream Sandwich on your Samsung smartphone yet?

Vodafone released the update to the HTC Sensation at the end of March, so no doubt Galaxy S2 owners are starting to get a little impatient.

The rollout of the latest version of Android is continuing across the range of smartphones, including Xperia handsets which are due to get the update in the middle of this month – those with the arc S, neo V and ray models will receive the new software flavour first.
