I have a Samsung Galaxy S2. I have never upgraded my OS. I have a link from ATT to upgrade to both Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean. Do I have to do the ICS upgrade before I can do Jelly Bean? Does upgrading the OS delete things saved on the phone such as pics, texts, contacts etc? Are there any known issues with the phones after upgrading?

You can go straight for the JB update. Don't even worry about ICS.
The update process typically leaves pics/videos/contacts in place, but it is ALWAYS a good idea to back-up your information before major updates.
Unfortunately, there are known issues with every build of every OS on every device. Don't let anything negative you read about JB deter you though, as the pros for this update from HC will definitely outweigh the cons.

Faster, more efficient and responsive OS.
Better quick settings.
Better app integration.
Better email management.
More customization options.
More widget options.
And that's just the beginning =P

Sounds good, thanks!
One quick quesiton. All of my contacts are backed up to my gmail account. If something were to happen and my contacts got deleted, how do I get them back to my phone from my gmail account?
