So whether migration is possible via samsung kies from 1.0 to 2.0. What do you think? I hope my phone will not go dead in bada 2.0.During purchase it is said that this phone supports 1.2 but now 2.0 is available so shall i upgrade or not to 2.0 and HOW?

I owned a Samsung S8500GT. I just updated the OS from Bada 1.0 to 2.0. The update took around 4 hours to complete.
I used the latest version of Kies available and everything happened smoothly.
Downloading of Kies --> Setup --> Download of necessary files (Around 150MB at 50Kbps, max time consumed in this step) -->Automatic Mobile data backup (Do not remove the MMC)--> Auto Flash of new OS --> Restore old data.

Overall, I am very happy with the new Bada 2.0 OS. The only negative feature what I could notice was there is no TrackID (Music Recognition) feature available in 2.0. But, considering the other improvements, it is recommended to go for the update.
