Samsung created a brand new OS: Bada. Then Sasmung declared Bada a failure, but Bada it's the only possibile OS for this smartphone.
Because of this you can do nothing at all. No whatsapp, no Google apps. Just the stock option. There is no assistance, no help for their own costumers! Samsung is definitely one of the worst company in the world.
You cannot install Whatsapp. This phone doesn't run Android, so it isn't possible to install any android app. Samsung Wave series' phones run Bada OS instead of Android OS (different software platform)
Samsung apps defective. It asks for update but after updating it does not function but ask for update again and again when I open it after updating. It just keep going on asking for update even after 10 updates have been performed. I cannot download anymore apps due to this.

sunny, 18 Apr 2015how did instal play store?You need to upgrade the Bada OS 2.0v to Tizen OS 2.3v first but i don't know how. Tizen is the new version of Bada. There is no play store as this is not android phone.
