My Samsung Galaxy S2 has the Android 2.3.6 version and a while ago I read that there would be an ICS update ( I have been checking for an update via OTA, but it keeps saying my software is up to date. What's wrong and how can I update it to ICS?

It appears that the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the Galaxy S2 on AT&T was never pushed over the air, but only via Samsung Kies.

In order to install the update you'll need to install and use Kies. If you do, I strongly recommend creating a system restore point (Windows) before installing it.
