Often times updating your operating system on an Android device can bring about some significant changes to your phone’s overall functionality and usage. While this update is HIGHLY recommended to get the most out of your Samsung Galaxy S2 it is, nevertheless, a good idea to backup your phone data on your computer before going through with any updates just in case something can get messed up along the way (particularly if you’ve added a number of applications to your phone to customize its usage prior to the update).

To backup your phone simply connect it to your computer and use your favorite (or factory issued) synch program to backup all your data before proceeding with the update. After the update is completed be sure to test out all applications to make sure that they are sill functional. Often times they may need to be updated as well to match your current operating system, so don’t worry if you need to add a few additional features to ensure you are truly satisfied with your phone afterwards.

And if you’re worried about updates, don’t be. Google works tirelessly to make sure that every update they make adds the most functionality to all of the devices they support around the world. Enjoy the new features and what Ice Cream Sandwich has to offer you and your handset.
