I have an unlocked(?) Samsung Galaxy S2 that was originally purchased in Saudi Arabia. I'm in the US and can't get it to update the Android OS from Jellybean to Ice Cream Sandwich. Please help.

Every month, I get a message on my phone asking if I want to download updates to the OS. I've clicked 'yes' and downloaded the update, only to be told that the update is incompatible with my phone.
I've researched the issues with my phone online and am getting very different answers. Some say I need to change the country code. Others say i need to root the phone. Are there any easy how to's for someone with a little technical know how, but no extensive experience in reprogramming phones? Any help is much appreciated.
