    Tried plugging my Note LTE into Kies just to see if the rumoured update to ICS was available, but Kies says that my device does not support updating via Kies. I do appear to have the latest firmware. Device has been unlocked, but is not roted and stock ROM.

    Is this typical of the Galaxy Note LTE on Bell? I do have the update button via the settings menu (for OTA updates), so its no big deal if I do get the update that way but just something I was wondering about.

    I have a Rogers one and it's the same with me. No Kies update available, but OTA is.

    I think it's going to be quite a wait. I also read somewhere the reason being the customization and testing can take a while. Considering they are customizing the ROM for their network and adding bloat; it will open up some holes that need to be patched, then tested again. Rinse and repeat...
