Default Samsung Galaxy S2 on Boost

Now that boostmobile officially has the Samsung Galaxy S2 on their website, I'm wondering if this will be the forums for it. This phone ships stock with ICS, I've been reading on these forums that sprint released the ICS update for the Epic 4g and people have had nothing but problems. Does anyone know if these phones are identical now, or is the S2 from Boost a different model? I believe they're the same but what do I know? I'm thinking about getting this phone next but I'm a little hesitant if ICS is having a lot of issues.

I've had ICS for quite a while on my phone and never had any issues with it.

I probably shouldn't have said "nothing but problems" in my first post, but I did notice a lot of people reporting battery drain issues and some GPS issues etc etc. Did your battery life suffer at all after the ICS update?

I can add it to my shopping cart on their website, I'm assuming it would let me buy it if I tried. I'm still undecided on though, I'll probably wait for a bit to see how the phone does before I decide to buy.

My phone has been working great. My "update" was a leaked ICS build long before it became official. OTA or leaked I think everyone should always do a factory reset right away THEN install apps.

It *may* be the reason why I didnt experience any issues. Just finished unofficial ungrading to Jelly Bean and again. no issues.
