aijaz, 25 May 2011Hi, I am not able to answer a call through my headset provided by pressing the headset button.... moreTo answer a call through your headset,dont just press the button to answer,u have to press and hold the button to answer.
The main problems I found after using this phone for 3 months:
1. The alarm clock doesn't always work(on Mondays particularly) and when it does, it only alarms for a minute and does not repeat it.
2. If you check the contact list during a call and click on a name, it automatically puts the person you were calling on hold and calls the person who's name you chose in the contact list. That's very annoying if you just wanted to give the 1st person the number of the second person from the contact list.
3. Certain games crash at start-up
4. Older sent messages are automatically deleted(not reaching the 3000 limit) and only recieved messages are left
5. After putting the SIM-card in another phone for a day and putting it back into the Wave, I suddenly lost 3 months of text messages from my gf, and that's really annoying. The phone was set to save text messages to phone, not SIM card but all I can see now are the ones on the SIM that were recieved 3 months earlier, before I got the phone.
6. The choice of apps suck(25.05.2011)
7. Headphones suck(compared to the ones I got with my earlier SE W610i & SE Xperia X1)
The phone is updated to the latest software, hopefully the annoyances will be fixed. It's a shame that such a nice phone has these issues whereas my SE W610i has worked flawlessly for the last 4 years. Of course the W610i doesn't have all the features the Wave has, but for example the alarm clock always works, the messages are always kept til it notices you the textbox is almost full and you can check numbers in the contact list during a call.
I only listed the problems above, but all-in-all, I'd give it a score of 8/10 just because of the issues mentioned earlier. The screen is great, the sound quality is great, battery life is great, on-screen keyboard is great, signal is good and the 1GHz CPU makes it pretty fast, too.

And i agree with the issue at BADA OS. It is still for further improvement. We we're just expecting so much on the phone from the fact that we we're amazed by the super amoled screen and it's other features. So just don't expect a computer OS to run your wave. It is only a phone anyway, not a super computer. =)and even computers do have lags too at times.

I still think it is the best phone to date. This WAVE turns out to be a limited edition. How cool is a S-AMOLED phone?
for those ranting about lack of apps or porting android, just you wait, androbada from youtube is working on it.
Besides, there's nothing wrong with BADA apart from less apps (bada is relatively new, like when all OSs underwent infancy stage). It is actually faster in regards to response time than any other OS, not to mention less clicks and easy navigation.
ithehappy, 21 May 2011This phone is in the market for just over one year. So how are you using it for 2 years? LOLRight, double checked and bought it 10 august 2010. Only 10 months, but phone so nice i thought i had it forever.
I had this fone for close to 8 months .. wonderful fone but with lack of apps and support .. moved on to iphone 4 - fone with best of apps and design (other than the death grip but no issues with Airtel - not a sigle call drop in last 1 month)
Now awaiting SGS 2 .. just love samsung with their innovation (not on design but technology) :)
Hope SGS2 is not very costly in india
