    It's a bird
    Enjoy your upgrade.

    Tips of the day:
    - Ensure your cell full charge.
    - Do not cancel the operation during the update process.
    - From GB to ICS is a major update. If you facing force close after the update, do factory data reset will solved lots of error.

    Wish you good luck

    Too many to list. It's a complete system overhaul, though what Samsung did to it I cannot say. Play around, see what you can find, and have fun!

    Im just afraid of the bugs and crashes but I kinda like to try the ICS. If anything goes wrong, is there a way to revert/downgrade?

    Yes, but before you do that I'd recommend you do a factory reset as soon as you experience the first issue of serious lag, force-closing, or glitches. The upgrade is a serious code rewrite so errors during the upgrade process are common. A factory reset forces the phone to recreate all the caches and other things that the upgrade creates, but does so with a clean slate. If you still experience issues, reinstalling the update may fix them. At that point if you really don't like it you'll need to flash the old firmware back on using another software tool than Kies. We'll talk you through it if it comes to that.

    Swype Not Working

    I just updated to ICS this morning, and I'm having a major issue with Swype. Any time I try to type anything, in any program, I get an error that it cannot load the EnglishUS keyboard. From there my only option is voice typing. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Im no expert on this since I havent done my ICS upgrade yet, have you done rebooting after the upgrade? Or factory reset as mentioned above?
