A guy I know showed me ICS on his AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket running Android 4.0 / ICS. I checked for updates, but I don't have any updates. Did AT&T release it or not? Is there something wrong with my phone?

Wish I would have waited for the GS3, it is what I get for listening to a saleman. I should have never listened to him, I know that this phone will eventually get ICS, infact I have ICS 4.0.4 right now on my phone but the official release would allow for overclocking and proper stable roms. I just want the official update, at this rate I am just going to get the next Nexus phone straight from Google so I do not have to worry about updates having to pass through carriers.

I you buy GS3 this month, you will say the samething 6 months down the road: you wish you would have waited for GS4 with Jelly Bean.
Buy a phone already running the the OS you wanted to have. There is never any guarantee if and when that phone will receive any future OS updates.

Skyrocket may get delayed since it was recently discovered that it's vulnerable to Superbrick just like its less-mutated cousin, the I777.

Please check your facts Entropy. Neither the Skyrocket nor the AT&T Note are affected by that bug. They have the wrong processor. IT's getting old watching you constantly post this crap.

Neither the SHG-I717 nor the SGH-I727 are on any site I can find concerning the brick bug. The 727 is the Skyrocket. The t989 is a Galaxy S II. The Galaxy S II has a different radio and processor in it than the 717 and 727. If you have used the brick bug detector put out by chainfire you would know that it checks the processor model to determine if you're at risk. You people keep putting this crap on here could be ruining someone else's chance of getting either a Skyrocket or Note which are perfectly fine phones. Do your research. Reading is fundemental.

My bad, you are right. Reading is fundamental. Its done like this, top to bottom, left to right. Here is the link.
"We’ve contacted Samsung about the problem where performing a mmc erase could hardbrick your phone (i9100, i9100g, n7000, m250 – MAG4FA, VYL00M, and KYL00M with firmware revision 0×19 // T989 and I727 with fw rev 0×12) if it’s having a faulty emmc chip. Read this thread for more informations about it: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1
If you check out the link at the end of the quote you will find several people with bricked skyrockets.
