    2 ways
    Download samsung kies to your windows computer and a upgrade should pop up follow the instructions and that should update you to 2.3.5
    2.You can flash the latest 2.3.6 firmware via odin. Look on xda for a guide very easy.

    2. was the s2 supposed to come with a cd?
    No
    3. what the f*ck is keis? keis air? are they free?
    Keis is basically samsung crappy version of itunes. Kies air is over the air syncing and yes they are both free

    4. is samsung apps free? is there anything useful in it? i opened it and it made me update it and said something about using internet connection. it cant use any internet or charge me for anything if i dont have data right?
    Some apps in the Samsung apps are free and their are some paid apps in their to i believe you can also use the android market. Some useful game trails such as tetris. No it wont charge you if you dont have data use wifi

    5. how do i put music on this and wheres the music player
    You can use kies to put music on it or download isyncr to your phone. That is what i use and its great. The defult player sucks. Download Poweramp or doubletwist.

    I think Android is pretty good. You can transfer music using the USB cable. Just go to setting/wireless & network/USB/ and follow the instructions. Tap the icon, connect the cable, tap another icon and the phone would be like a thumbdrive. And you can transfer files and music like that.

    You can also download the user manual over the net.

    There are quite a few games and apps that are free on Samsung apps. Some pretty nice games too. I got asphalt 6 free but not sure if still available. A lot of apps and games can also be found through market.

    I am wondering this too, last time I checked, I had no updates available and I'm on 2.3.3. That would have been a couple months ago, I can't see them releasing 2 updates since then. Can anyone confirm?

    I have lost patience a long time ago with Bell and their updates. Been running 2.3.6 for a while and just upgraded to ICS a few days ago.
