    Kies does not offer upgrade to ICS automatically. When it works that is.

    Hi guys,

    Hope you can help me. Hubby has a S2 from AT&T S-i777 with the older Android 2.3 something. He's been having issues with his data usage running haywire in the background on unidentified app. We have currently data off to not go over the plan, and AT&T advised us upgrading to ICS which has app specific data manager that could help us identify the problem. Downloaded Kies, it updated itself to the latest version (2.5 I think - sorry I am writing this from work and do not have any of this info in front of me). Then we had issues with Kies recognizing the device. After trying multiple times and different USB ports it finally did it, but announced that the firmware is up to date and didn't offer the upgrade to ICS.

    I do not want to jailbreak the phone, since he might have to return it if all fails (we got it this summer, it's still under warranty) but do you guys have any suggestions on how to fix this mess? I am frankly appalled at the unreliability of Kies, this is really ridic.
