I upgraded too and also lost the lighting on the physical keyboard. I did a full backup on Kies prior to the upgrade and am having trouble doing the restore. I keep getting errors when attempting it, even when trying to restore a single items such as contacts.
-Internet is super slow now
-Battery life is terrible
-No longer have a scrolling wallpaper, and no longer adjust to screen position
I have done several things to fix. I constantly am clearing the ram, as it seems to run high. I have done a master reset. After which, many contacts upon restore became miss-matched. Some disappeared all together.
My phone has not been rooted/unlocked/jailbroken, etc.
just upgraded to ICS via ATT. not OTA so it took about 2 hours but installed
with no problems. took another hour to recreate my home pages.
the onlt issue i found so far was that slider keyboard lighted keys do not
light up (will go to ATT store to see if they can find setting)
How were you able to upgrade to the ICS? I go on the samsung website and each time shows that the ICS upgrade has been put on hold. I have bricked my phone in the past trying to upgrade before it went on hold. Please help! (:
I used Kies to upgrade from the first AT&T ICS release to this second AT&T ICS release. Indeed, the keyboard backlight problem is gone without any hacks. Seems like the fast dormancy related kernel wakelock that was sucking up the battery life by keeping the phone awake is also gone.
For some reason the update wouldn't download OTA. Software update always claimed by software was up to date.
As far as I can tell, this ICS update is solid.
Nothing else to report, so far.

I know that not a features from ICS will be on all phones, but I have heard that I am at least supposed to get the unlock to camera function on my captivate glide. I cannot do that and have tried seeing if there is a setting d to change, but I haven't found anything. I also cannot create folders on my homepage or re-size widgets. I was just wondering what features I am supposed to have.
AT&T slide-out keyboard devices are few, but if you are looking for a powerfull smartphone with said feature, this might be your best bet. The Samsung Captivate Glide carries a good slide-out QWERTY keyboard along with some great specs.
