I updated without any issues yesterday evening. So far no issues, display is so much crisper, internet is twice as fast. I'm sure battery will drain faster we will see today. Will keep you posted.. so far I'm very pleased....

I got the "you already have the latest firmware" for 4.0.4 message too, but it turned out there was a Kies update. I think it's in Kies>Tools - try checking the app for an update and if it finds one, install, reboot and try again. This worked for me.

One word - XDA forums

All of you that are wishing, hoping, praying for this crappy bloatware laiden update - go to the XDA forums (search google, not sure if I can post links here or not).  Root your phone (not illegal) permanently, and flash a custom Jellybean rom to it.  Viper XL is a GREAT rom that is based off of the Rogers (ATT Canada, basically) version of Jellybean.  It works GREAT!  Plus, once you root the phone, you can continue to install new roms, and keep it up to date, since AT&T has decided to dump support for this phone.  I just got fed up and did it, an and was surprised at how easy it is to do.  If any updates come out, I'm sure they'll block the exploit that is available to root the phone, thus preventing you from ever updating the Android OS once support for it ends (which probably has happened already, all thing considered, lol).  Good luck!
