Once ICS is available in india, ( remember to be on GB ( any, nordic asian, just any) ) plug in to pc companion and install, you will get the asian version of ICS Slightly smiling Face

I also encountered a similar kind of problem, before proceeding, install the drivers ( tick mark all of them ) from the driver folder in flashtool. then you woud not have any problem !!

You can't freeze all apps. Actually it is up to you. And you are not actually uninstalling these.

We are just removing them from the Core folder [System], So that these apps dosen't occupy RAMs and it ensure more internal space.

If you need any apps back on working then just copy the app in to system folder and reboot. it will work then.

ICS got issues with data connections like WiFi, EDGE or 3G. So try restarting the device when facing this. I faced the same and restarting seems to help.

May be ICS got some issues with network. [both in WiFi/GSM] It may be regional also. Like ICS can't detect my Carrier network sometimes. Also have problems with WiFi connectivity. It disconnects every now and then.
