U.S. Cellular Samsung Galaxy S II SCH-R760

Looks like today is turning into Android Update Friday. After updates were released for devices on AT&T and Verizon, U.S. Cellular has now revealed that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update is now available for its Samsung Galaxy S II. The update brings the Galaxy S II up to Android 4.0.4 and features the build number FK19. Once installed, users will find new goodies like Face Unlock, "a more intuitive interface" and updated versions of apps like Polaris Office and the Amazon Appstore.

So how can you give your U.S. Cellular Galaxy S II an Ice Cream Sandwich treat? Users can install the update by using Samsung's Simple Upgrade Tool on a Windows-based PC or by stopping by a U.S. Cellular store with a tech center. The jump from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich is a big one and will bring several new features and open up the S II to 4.0-only apps like the Chrome browser, so this update is one that U.S. Cellular folk with an S II should definitely grab. All of the necessary download links and installation instructions can be found at the Samsung link below.
