I updated my S2 yesterday as i was aware the new ICS was out and i was really looking forward to it (the main reason i purchased the handset). Since the update my phone has gone extremly laggy. If i press the middle button to return to the main menu it takes at LEAST 3 seconds before the handset does anything.
It was a brilliant phone before the update, had over 120 apps and tons of music, videos the lot and not one single problem. Never had to reset or take out my battery or anything. Since the update it has hanged so badley i have had to remove the battery 4 times. It struggles to do very basic things like go onto my message menu and return to the main menu without locking up. It used to be really snappy and fast and now its really un-pleasant to use. Has anyone else got this problem?

Did you follow the update process correctly?
You should have first backed up all or your data
Next you should have re-set your phone back to its original factory state
Next would have been the update
Next you should have done another re-set of your phone

Just to add...
I would try and do a factory re-set and see how your SGS2 performs then.
If all OK re-add your apps etc. one by one, testing your phone each time just in case you have some apps that are not compatible with the new up-date

Cheers. Yes i done the procedure exactly as Kies stated. The middle button problem is very frustrating. Especially when your used to your phone being very fast.

This could well be a faulty Home button.
I recall some months ago a similar fault reported by a Member.
I believe you are still within your "cooling off", 7 day period? If so a replacement can be organised.
If not, then a repair can be arranged by Vodafone or you may prefer to arrange a repair via a Samsung Service Centre.

Hi, im having the same problem but never had a single problem witnh gingerbread, i could hammer the hell out of it before. And I did everything as below.
1. BACKUP everything, I won't go through all the available options...
2. BACKUP again
3. BACKUP again just to make sure
4. Make sure your phone is fully charged
4. Factory Re-set, into dialer and type *2767*3855# (this will wipe EVERYTHING that you have purchased or downloaded onto the phone and format the SD card)
5. Your phone will now be back to how it was when you received it in that little box from Vodafone
7. During setup of the phone register with a Google Account if you want to do the update OTA
8. Make sure your phone is fully charged.
9. For OTA update you will either get a notification or you can look for it in Applications, then Settings, then scroll down to About Phone, then Software Update, OR
7. Connect to Kies
8. Update the phone to ICS
9. Factory Re-set, into dialer and type *2767*3855#

There is nothing really wrong with ICS,
Here's what you needed to do before updating to ICS.
1. Backup Data & Apps
2. Factory Reset your phone
3. Update to ICS
4. Factory Reset your phone again.
I haven't recieved ICS yet so I wouldn't really know but this is what I heard.

Right You will find that there are alot of third party apps that are not compatable
The Galaxy Nexus will not see apps the S2 can as there not compatable
The problem is pinning this down to the apps
well its not Games
it will be a app that uses the system
Facebook is a pain in the kneck and with that on othere apps can have problems
Now before you all run to the hills and say well the phone .apk force closes well just about every app has a connection to that this is call Monitor phone status
so take a look at what apps are running in the back ground
any apps you do fine contact the developer of the app
Now here is another tip try changing the Touchwiz launcher to say adwLauncher or Launcher pro
I think Touchwiz is a Buggy Launcher any how

Your email issue could be related to pop/imap issues.
Your incoming settings will either use a pop server or an imap server.
pop server will only deliver to one location, whereas imap can simultaneously deliver to multiple locations.
Can you check your SSL security settings are correct?
Can you post your settings, but obviously not include your actual email part... XXXXX@email.com

Not to sure what you mean by SSL security settings buddy.
My settings are
Incoming mail server - POP3
Incoming mail (POP3) - pop.ntlworld.com
outgoing mail (SMTP) - smtp.ntlworld.com
Do you need any other information?
My actual email settings are the same when i was running Gingerbread, nothing from the settings have changed. Its a weird one!

Despite what woppy says kies did the ICS update on my phone without any requests to backup prior. All seems to have gone OK and phone is noticably faster especially when browsing etc. BUT, big BUT rSAP is no longer available and my car kit no longer works (mercedes Command) the BT connection finds the phone and the phone finds the car but the pin number input never works and the phone cannot connect. A very expensive mistake for me as I work extensively from the car on the move. The current solutioin seems to be to 'root' and buy an app to make rSAP work again. Not overly happy to do this as i'm a technical clutz.
