Which version are you using on your Ace? I'm currently on 2.3.4 on baseband S5830DDKQ5 - it seems to be the latest and there aren't any further updates on Kies when I checked.

There is no official update for ace after ginger bread. But you can always root n try latest custom ICS for ace.

Updated from 2.3.4 to 2.3.6 today. OTA & not thru KIES :). Downloaded in less than 5 minutes but the installation took at least 30+ minutes. In fact I was wondering if the update had got stuck midway but it went thru slowly (patience in not my strong point). Like others have mentioned I noticed this (immediately on starting).


[*]Home screen clock display shifted to bottom.
[*]New unlock system. Can be confusing as there no direction on what to do.
[*]No problem (so far) in browsing thru the gallery.
[*]There is a slight different in accessing the contacts/sms/logs. Basically the first three buttons frm the left side.
[/list]Had taken a backup of everything but I didnt loose anything. :) Will update in due course as & when I notice any upgradation/degradation in performance or other changes.

Just noticed that the ringtone for receiving a sms & the delivery report is the same - no matter what ringtone you have applied Bloody inconvenient
&
When the phone gets charged I do not get s sound notification like in 2.3.4
Has anyone noticed the same? I wonder what the 'Notification' ringtone is used for?:(
