    I updated mine and the process was smooth. Yet to explore the changes/new features available in ICS.

    How many apps you got? I would like the option to not update (ota on verizon) until I hear more.

    I also noticed a yellow horizontal line randomly appearing on the left side of my screen. Plus a loud buzzing sound keeps going off. Like a siren.

    Wow, you guys have some bad luck. I updated mine and there are no problems with the OS whatsoever. I did see some apps lag, but it's because they don't fully support ICS yet (third party apps).

    I rooted the phone as well and froze some crawpare and I can honestly say that my phone seems to be more snappy now on ICS than when it was on Gingerbread.

    Devil of a time getting it on there but finally did it.

    Kies kept barfing on my Macbook Pro. Got home and fired up Win 7 (well after 27 updates and a couople of reboots later since I hadn't turned it on in about a month) and whenever the phone screen would auto-off, connection to kies would die.

    Got around that today by leaving a youtube video so I could update :crazy:

    But it's done. Aesthetically not much different. I like this version of Touch Wiz and especially some of the utility mods to it (settings in the notification screen for example). I do kinda wish we had gotten the blue icons and roboto font but don't want the vanilla ICS pseudo-soft buttons since we have the touch buttons anyway. Probably root in the next few days to take care of some bloat, but mostly satisfied.

    My main gripe is that I apparently can't use a single 1 x 1 "today" widget I was using before.

    My phone has been making a loud siren sound at times. Even in silent mode.

    Didnt do that when it was on 2.3.6.

    I did notice one negative change so far, higher latency. Before the update it was in the 50s and 60s, but now it's in the 80s or above.

    I know that this is not a network problem as I tested it on another phone and latency was normal (as in 50 to 60 milliseconds).

    Anyone else notice a difference in internet speed or higher latency? BTW, also noticed the issue on EDGE as well. Latency was in the 200s and now is in the 300s.
