This week, mobile phone carrier AT&T started the delivery of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to its Galaxy S II users, but only for a brief period of time.
The carrier put the deployment on hold only a couple of days after kicking it off, citing a series of technical issues with it.
Of course, this is not the first time that something like this happens, yet this does not mean that users won’t be angry about it, that’s for sure.
However, the wireless carrier says that it should not be too long before the update starts rolling out again for its Galaxy S II customers.
“We plan for the upgrade to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) for Galaxy S II customers to be live very soon,” the wireless carrier stated, reports Android Central
“Like with every OS update, we test it on our servers before we roll it out to customers. We’re in the process of doing that with Android 4.0 (ICS) for Galaxy S II customers and hope to make that live soon. We recommend customers wait to attempt the update.”
The wireless carrier provided no specific info on what caused the delay, nor did it offer an exact availability date for it.

OS upgrade in a wide range of markets around the world already, and it even got a taste of it at wireless carriers in the United States, such as T-Mobile.
Along with AT&T, Sprint is another carrier that hasn’t provided the software update to its Galaxy S II users, but it is expected to make the move in the not too distant future.
Hopefully, at least those on AT&T’s network will receive the update sooner rather than later, so keep an eye on this space for more info on the matter.
