    Are you rooted? If so, you can install any Gingerbread ROM. If not, you may be able to apply an update.zip of a previous version of GB.

    Get in touch with Samsung and ask them for the nearest service centre and whether they'll approve them restoring your GS2 to GB

    I did this today (ICS won't allow the phone to connect to my car's hands free). Took about an hour although it'll tak eme ages to get all my apps back :(

    thanks mate, i will do that.
    i will give ics another week though as i have heard a strange rumour that it takes a week to come good??
    my main problem is the fact that i can't upload to picasa anymore and thats what i use most!

    It took my battery a few days to settle, i upgraded directly from gb and i believed upgrade caused the battery to drain. This didn't happen dramatically but wanted to factory reset to confirm i now have no problem and its running brilliantly!
