you have to wait for the update to be approved in your country/region. also if your phone is or was locked to a carrier/network branded, you have to wait for them, carrier/network, to approve and release the update

if you can NOT wait and you MUST have ICS now then

this is how to manualy update your phone.

I will also suggest that you check that link and create a backup of your current firmware (2.3.7) as some users do not like ICS, that way you can flash back.
