To answer your first question.. I don't know as i'm not a lawyer, and even then the answer probably depends on where you are in the world....

To be honest the official ICS update was really disappointing. Its slower, with less memory than your current build and the official Huawei position is to downgrade and wait until they do a better job. This may not be completely their fault as vodafone (who sell a lot of them world wide) may also be involved in testing, specs and sign offs....

So your options would probably be, to stay put, or move to an unofficial custom rom. Modaco.com is a good place to start, and there are some really useful sticky threads as to how to do this. 'The explain like you're 5 years old" one being a fantastic starting place.

I've just gone from the official ICS update, to the new cyanogen9 firmware and am blown away by how much better it is.. although to be fair it is still a work in progress and there are a few niggles to be worked out.
