Default How do I get Ice Cream Sandwich Now?

My UK T-Mobile supplied Samsung Galaxy S2 was recently bricked by Samsung Kies.
So rather than deal with my T-Mobile store who were talking about sending it away and a possible three week wait whilst they “assessed” what and who was at fault!
I sent it off to a reputable shop who informed me it would require it to be “Jtagged” whilst doing this they installed “vanilla” Samsung firmware and unlocked the handset for me, so far so good and I have to say since having the work done the device is much faster than ever before, it boots up in half the time and is generally more responsive all round.
I then got to thinking “if I now have “vanilla” Samsung firmware” I should be able to get the ICS Android 4 update as the handset is to all intents and purposes a SIM free unit?
So I tried going the >Settings > About phone> Software Update route however all I get is a “connection failed” message.
So with much trepidation I tried using Kies again but that just tells me my handset cannot be recognised for update!
Can anyone tell me how I now go about getting firmware updates now OR advise me as too exactly what I am doing wrong please?
