Samsung 8500 Mk, 16 Aug 2012Hello to all
Can any one tell me how to change unlock button on Samsung Wave 8500 with Bada... moreTough luck. I guess we're stuck with the press-the-lock-button-to-activate-phone setup. The call/end keys provide a better and more convenient solution IMO.
Um, hope Samsung will include it in future minor bada updates. LOL.
hassan, 17 Aug 2012i am using bada 1 uk firmware in pakistan. kies says your "device can not be updated via ... moreSadly, the latest available FW for your region is bada 1.2.
You don't know what you're missing. :-)
Flash it to bada 2.0 manually. It's complicated (a little) and risky but it's worth the risk.
For UK FW:
Register first to download the FW, and just google the flashing tutorial (instructions).
Do some research first and if you're up to it, go flash your phone.
Well it looks like Bada is dead,,see GSMArena homepage on Tizen due early next year..

Hello to all
Can any one tell me how to change unlock button on Samsung Wave 8500 with Bada 2.0 on it
Thanks in advance
Bada 1.2 had an option of synchronizing facebook friends with phone contacts. Is there any kind of option like that in bada 2.0?
Have been searching for it since bada 2.0 came... But yet to find out... Please help guys..
