AT&T have - "stay tuned. within few weeks ICS will be announced"
Or, "Its on our radar" Or, "we are are testing the ICS n dont knw the exact timing" so many way to say LOL

Samsung could do better..
If they have a project management team handling things, why can't they post an estimated date?
So that we dont have to waste time checking this page every day?
You can avoid having millions of Samsung's otherwise happy customers, getting frustrated and pledging never to buy another Samsung product again; simply by posting an estimated date and updating it as you get close to it.

That is an interesting concept - The vendor working with the carrier to ensure communication is done and the customers are happy.
As much as I don't care for the Apple giant, they announce a date and stick to it.
I realize they are in control of the entire chain but if Android wanted to take further marketshares from Apple this seems like a no brainer.

You are missing the point here, I never said I want a buggy OS (I'd use Windows it that was the case).
I just want a date on when ICS will be released (official comminucation regarding that)

Why would you want a release date? They would just push is back becuase they can't figure out how to make it not have bugs or issue a crap update. So stop pestering ATT let them put their bloat ware on it and mess things up like they did on the S2

fyi, I eventually took the advice/hint and got a leaked rom installed.
I went to xda developers and looked it over, am now on 4.0.4 (UCLF5)
There may be an issue with GPS navigation on that rom but I don't use it so not a big deal.
Next up is looking for the s voice app and geting that on the note then.

No thanks. I'll keep my fully functional phone/tablet. I will wait for the up date to roll out. The update that was pushed to France has been bringing phones so I am going to be patient with this one.

Now that people's anger may come down a notch (I'm sure the "Where is Jellybean" thread will start in about 10 seconds), I'm curious about something that I saw mentioned in a few posts.
People are mad that the Note is coming to T-Mobile with ICS onboard. Are you all saying that you would have rather not have had the Note at all for the past ~5 months, just so it could be released with ICS (after Jellybean is live)? I'm just trying to wrap my head around this reasoning.

I almost understand the anger and can completely relate to it, because it has been me in the past with other devices. What perplexed me more was the line of reasoning behind being upset that it's coming to T-Mobile in July or August with ICS onboard.
The reality is that this is the same situation that we bought our Notes in. Ice Cream Sandwich had been out for three months before the Note hit AT&T with Gingerbread. T-Mobile's will come out with ICS around a month after Jellybean has been released.
My point is that this should not be a bone of contention or an insult in any shape, form or fashion in my opinion. I could have understood it more if people refused to buy the Galaxy Note in February with an already outdated OS onboard.
And believing the rep when he said it was coming soon-really? I know that you should be able to believe sales reps, but that's not the society that we live in. Furthermore, I don't think that most were being intentionally dishonest, but that they were going by what they were told.

The whole point is that AT&T are either unable or unwilling to communicate the release oc in this case) ICS on (in this case) the Note.
It's just that simple.
This has opened my horizon to the Nexus (to get updates straight from Google) and also to the xda developers board so maybe this was a good learning experience. So I now know I have a firmware build that should mean my phone can't be bricked by Samsung's bug.
One would think a weekly update of release dates across applicable devices to a web site would take a few hours and somehow that seems like too logical and customer friendly an option?)
I do like the data management option in 4.0.4 and my battery life seeme better.

I finally got my phone back up and running. I had to do a factory reset on mine after the update because that didn't go well for me. On to setting up my phone again!

Do not change any settings under the developer mode settings they stick even when changed back to normal especial the flash screen.
There is an intermittent RED box that flashes when switching between apps and pressing home button.
That is all I can Report now.
the rest is nice so far!
