  • How are you connected to the internet? It needs to be over a data connection, not Wi-Fi. – Matthew Read Oct 24 '11 at 14:12
  • Seconded - I've tried over a data connection as well as WiFi. Same error. Hoping for an update for India from the current 2.3.3 – Sparx Oct 24 '11 at 14:15
  • @MatthewRead Yes its over data connection only – Lenin Raj Rajasekaran Oct 25 '11 at 4:01

Galaxy S2 doesn't support OTA updates...so it's unlikely that you will be able to check for updates from your phone. The same "Connection Failed" error comes to me when I try that in my phone.

  • then what are the other ways to update the phone software? – Lenin Raj Rajasekaran Oct 26 '11 at 6:34

    @emaillenin download Kies for your computer and connect the phone via USB, it should prompt you for updating. – Oak Nov 2 '11 at 10:00

Dial *#8736364# to check for an update.

  • same error "Connection failed" when tried using this way – Lenin Raj Rajasekaran Feb 23 '12 at 17:48
