Re: Samsung Skyrocket (i727) Gingerbread Update

I am outside the US right now (with my unlocked I727) and I was able to receive the UCLA3 Gingerbread  2.3.6 update over wifi before AT&T pulled it.  It didn't break anything my phone other than the screen swipe and scrolling wallpaper.  I hope ICS will be released the same way.

Re: Samsung Skyrocket (i727) Gingerbread Update

I believe the UCLA3 2.3.6 update for the I727 was pulled from the update server by At&t within a couple weeks of its release due to some customers experiencing problems with the firmware update.

Re: Samsung Skyrocket (i727) Gingerbread Update

Probably not the best place to ask this - but my update worked fine.  I can now "reply all" to MMS messages.  However - is there any way to add a subject to an MMS?

Again AT&T from AT&Tfacebook wrote that the ICS update will be released in the coming months. You can read all about it here:
http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pid=22620&cdvn=news&newsarticleid=34101&mapcode=consumer
I checked the URL n saw that the announcement was announced on March 22, 2012. There written HTC Vivid™ will be the first U.S. smartphone to receive Ice Cream Sandwich as an update and the first to be issued by a wireless carrier. It will be followed by several other AT&T devices in the coming months. Now its June 2012. Coming months is not minimum satisfactory date or time frame
