Not possible for the pocket. Its a very low end phone and the hardware is not powerful enough to run Ice Cream.

Android 3.0 or Honeycomb is released only for Tablets.

You could potentially try and find a ROM that someone has ported for your device to support Android 4.0, but like chanchan has said your device, being low end, would probably run it very poorly.

You can upgrade a phone if it has good specs. Just like on a PC.

For example, a Galaxy Pocket has a single core 800mhz A8 chip with no graphics chip. It can't run Ice Cream.

A Galaxy SIII has a quad core 1.2Ghz A9 chip with a Mali-400 graphics chip. This means it can run Jelly Bean and Ice Cream.

Your phone cannot be upgraded. Samsung phones are usually upgraded via the Kies program.

If any exist for your phone. Usually ROMs are only available for the more popular higher end phones like the Galaxy S series.

My words exactly. Its not about it being perfect for your phone.. its about ROM and hardware compatability.. you could possibly put 4.0 on it but it would be slow and you would hate it.. not worth it..
