RcyberN,

     So far there's only a couple of devices that have actually been officially confirmed for getting ICS. No news yet on Epic Touch unfortunately.

Don't take Shane_M's message to mean it won't get it.  Many people will see that post and start to heavily fla.me on Sprint.  We are all hopeful it will get it, and there is no reason why it shouldn't.  Specwise its nearly identical to the Galaxy Nexus.  There's so little information coming out about ICS, its a bit ridiculous.  All I know is that if the new G+ app is any indication of nice UI tweaks, we are going to all be pretty happy with ICS.

Besides, XDA will have ICS running on the Epic 4G Touch soon, I'd wager.

MmEJ27,

Yeah, I kinda posted topic on purpose to stir the pot a little.  I've been doing some research out on the web looking for information.  I couldn't find anything.  I just hope if it does get updated it's not two years from now...

I've been to XDA...but a little paranoid to root the phone.  Have you ever rooted successfully?  If I mess it up, can I revert back to the orginal OS?  I have installed Samsung Kies in preperation to root, but haven't taken the plunge yet. I'm pretty much tied to my phone.  If I brick it, I'd be lost.

Thanks for your reply.

from what i have heard here and there theyre taking things a little slower with ICS since the last few updates google had came with alot of issues. rumor of course but personally id much rather have it take a bit and be right the first time than get a rush job that cripples my phone.

At this time we do not have any phones that work with that operating system and have no information on when it might be released.  So far there are not even many unsubstantiated rumors about it

If it makes you feel better, developers are already porting ICS over to the original Epic 4G, also I beleive google started stating that phones must recieve updates for 18 months at least (Don't quote me on this though, I don't have time to confirm at the moment), it's a good bet to say the Epic Touch will get the update.  The question is when, Samsung and Sprint have been horribly slow with Epic 4G updates.
