Don't know if it helps, but if your 'CSC' value has a 'P' after the 'I9100' (eg: I9100Po2xx instead of I9100o2xx you can't upgrade 'till o2 says. they told me all phones will have it, but thats just not true as I bought my phone a couple of days after the release date.
Having read a few more threads I guess you already know this
However, it is still good to know that even tho o2 staff in the shops and on the phone say this phone is shipping with ics, it isn't. i had the same convo as the op and was left just as frustrated.
I was advised to wait out my 14 day cooling off period to see if the update arrives then return the phone. hardly customer service

You hase just got your S2 phone then? You were told it had ICS already installed?
If that's the case and your not happy then don't wait until your 14 days cooling off peroid or you will have to keep the phone. Yes it's very confusing with phone's being the same but different and the time it take's to get the whole range of S2 on ICS. At the end of the day that's while carriers push idevice's due to them all having the same IOS. As kp has stated on another thread it's time for google to make sure that their OS is the same for all device's come what may, that was supposed to happen with ICS but as you can see it's not working. Google released ICS then Samsung played with it and released it and then O2 had a mess around before they released it. Crazy if you ask me and I can no see why more & more people are rooting their phone's so they can have the full ICS without all the bloatware added.

thanks paul. ... yes, i asked them in the store and on the phone re ics, both said phone is shipping with ics. furthermore, my ex wife also ordered an s2 which she received today. at my insistance, she also asked for confirmation that ics was on the phone, and they are still saying it ships with ics, which is now a blatant lie as they are fully aware it does not. the good(?) news is that the 'p' is allegedly the latest version, and has NFC which seems pretty cool
ps .. they advised me to return the phone and take out a new contract on the GT I9100, which i believe is an older model . i think just ditching them for another provider would not help much, so i guess i am stuck with half of what they sold me or nothing. not a great state of affairs, but typical for a big company today

Im gutted that I don't have it.. I work for orange and we where one of the last networks to push it out, yet everyone has it.. It's even more guttering everytime I open a HTC One S and know they have the ICS and I don't.. I've spoken to my samsung rep who told me due to getting it through carphone warehouse it was pushed out first and available for download.. he wan't sure why I couldnt get it.. It made me even more annoyed when 02 have released it and I still havent got it
