Unfortunately, The ICS Update is Not OTA (Over The Air). Rather it requires the Users to Upgrade using Kies Software and a Computer Connected to Internet as Kies Downloads the Update.

US T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II will  get the Software Updated to Android  Version 4.0.3 / SoftwareT989UVLE1 via Kies. This update changes the Android OS  to Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), and Improves Performance and Stability.

2. Then Connect your T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II via a USB cable to Computer / Kies (making sure USB Debugging is enabled)

4. Device May Boot and at the End ICS ICe Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 Gets Installed in Your Device
