T-Mobile USA Galaxy S II getting Ice Cream Sandwich tonight

T-Mobile have posted details about an upcoming Samsung Galaxy S II upgrade headed their way tonight. The upgrade will bring Ice Cream Sandwich, surprisingly enough, making them one of the first US carriers to get the upgrade for that phone. Expect TouchWiz to remain present, but don’t expect any of the new features found in TouchWiz 4.0 to make their way to the handset.

Other improvements will include WiFi calling, voicemail, and CMAS (Commercial Mobile Alert System). It’ll be made available through Kies so be sure to have the app downloaded to your computer. Look for it to arrive there starting at 11PM eastern tonight. Head to T-Mobile for more details. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

    Congrats T-Mobile GSII owners. The GSII seemed like a good phone, but as a happy Nexus S fan, I may never go with a non-Nexus phone ever again. I got ICS in DECEMBER! Admittedly, the Galaxy S III is making me rethink that, but I’ll likely hold off until the next rumored Nexus drops in (rumored) November.

    Viva La Nexus!
    (…oh, and definitely getting a Nexus Tablet)

    Finally… I never thought this day would come. It took a total of 2 hours to get it through an hour and 40 minutes to install kies the right way and 20 minutes to deploy the upgrade.
