Galaxy S II 2.3.6 Update - Is there a way to ignore?

I have tried updating my Galaxy twice to 2.3.6 and each time it completely kills the battery life as well as my bluetooth connections.  I've seen some other sources stating to update the the wifi sleep policy, but this shouldn't need to be done.  2.3.4 seems to handle all my daily requirements without the need to plug in the phone every 5 hours.

 

It's strange that on multiple sites, I see the same posts about the same errors, but no fixes from AT&T or Samsung or an admission that there might be a real problem.  I can't recommend anyone install this update, unless you like keeping your phone tethered to a power socket all day.  Currently I'm ignoring the annoying message that states an update is available, but would rather turn that off if possible.

 

Will wait for the ICS update. Hopefully, they will get that update right.

On January 4, 2012,  Samsung presumably said that the "Samsung Galaxy S Ice Cream Sandwich Update Not in the Cards."

 

Hopefully, you can click on the link below:

He's talking about the GSII, not the GS.
