    This will not all happen to everyone, these are just a few things people have reported, and wanted to let you know if you experience these, you aren't alone, hopefully Samsung/At&t rolls out an update to address certain issues.

    My battery life is much better! I found that in the Play store when you click on a game or app and then hit the back button to return to the list it starts from the top. Having to scroll all the way back to where you where on the list is annoying. I've had a few apps crash and camera freezes while deleting a video (freezes when you hit 'OK' to delete).

    My biggest issue is general screen/system freezing issues. It doesn't happen in any one specific app, just happens a lot and it's really annoying. The phone used to be really fast on GB, now I'm scared to do anything bc the phone might freeze.

    I have noticed some slight freezes but usually after awhile a pop up message will show up telling me something crashed like the browser, which I don't mind, although wish nothing crashed haha.

    BUT, I did encounter a lot of crashes on GB, so so far ICS is working well for me, but I do notice that the ICS doesn't run as smooth and fast as GB.

    Strange situation that I have learned to expect but not explain. Has anyone opened up your email program and suddenly all the emails received disappear? Without touching a button, they just go away! Even the counter at the top goes to zero.

    If I back out of the app, and click on it again, the emails reappear like normal.

    FINALLY, a select all for deleting old stuff......KUDOS for that one!

    I've been experiencing the following common issues...

    [*]Keyboard lag.
    [*]Screen freezes during web browsing.
    [*]Wi-Fi constantly scanning, disconnects and huge data downloads.

    More specifically I've experienced.
    1. Not connecting to the router in my house automatically. This actually screwed me over because I downloaded 200MB in podcasts thinking I was connected to my home network but it actually downloaded in 4G taking up my monthly data allotment.

    2. Freezing when I try to unlock to answer a call. This pisses me off because I'm trying to answer a call and it won't let me.

    3. If I get a text message and try to respond by touching the text input box the keyboard does not appear.
    I have to exit the text message and go back in to respond to a text.

    These things are really annoying.

    Lastly, I've also noticed that ICS lags and hesitates more than GB.

    Is this version being released different from the 4.0.4 leak from a couple months ago? I updated then and I am having zero issues with my skyrocket.

    Is this a know correction, or just a suggestion?

    I installed ics through Kies last week and I noticed my phone to be slower or lagging somewhat. The main thing that was a deal breaker for me was the functioning of the stock email program. Half of the time I would get my email from work and half of the time I would not. I also would not get an audible notification for most of the time. I have to have my work email so ics did not work for me.

    I ended up going to an ATT Device Service Center in the Dallas area where I live and they were able to flash me back to GB 2.3.6. My phone is working great again.

    Bold issues below were the issues I was having I ended up doing a factory reset and AT&T sent me a new sim card which took care of all my issues.

    When the updated version of ICS does roll out, would I have to update to ICS first and then to the new soft?

    Also, I heard backing up everything and doing a factory reset helps as some of the issues are caused by using GB apps. Is this correct?

    Yes, after updating to ICS, I also face the problem of screen freezing, when I am try to unlock to answer a call; this happens at anytime suddenly.
    Also the screen freezes, when in contacts screen
