Chelseagirl, 14 Sep 2012Can you tell me if you are able to change the font size when texting, if so how to do it. ThanksYou cannot change the font size when texting, only when reading the message using the volume keys
Can you tell me if you are able to change the font size when texting, if so how to do it. Thanks
Really great phone, good for basic function and a few games. Good small size, great screen, light and loud. Great camera and video, especially with bada 2.0 when you can use the key on the screen to take a picture.
Old phone now but still love it, cannot find any flaws.
After more than 2 years of usage I was able to tranfer files to my 2nd laptop. I dont know why the process of Bluetooth pairing is so complicated. It would just not pair with any guy unless the pairing is stored in its list of devices. very strange process.
Anyway the phone is still good , I would say reliable if you need to do basic stuff, Good battery life and yes no Hangs.
After 25 months of usage I found that that Samsung does not care about its customers other than Galaxy S series, I am running away from this useless BADA os , My phone is still a beautiful piece of Shit without any scratches and a gorgeous S Amoled Display.
One more thing guys, dont dare to call a wave as a smartphone, its not and it will never be.
I have bought a ZOPO ZP100 ICS phone and i am enjoying it.
Bye Bye wavers
Better audio quality than my SGS2 T989(T-mobile). And every thing is good for a 2010 phone especially its hardware. Bada is still good for me but Andriod is much better.
Also battery durability is more superior to most of the smartphones. Still I have to use this as my multimedia needs.

thanks to all of you for your inputs. I dont see any big advantage in upgrading my working phone. if there is no skype and no other big advantage , i can live with my Bada 1.0 OS. its still good for call and music.
what is the radiation dosage limit for this model? that is harmless radiation dosage limit?
I lost everything in the phone after upgrading to bad 2.0 ...
Only good things in bada 2.0 is that you can take picture by touching the screen (no more blurry picture using the hard key) and the touch focus for video...
No more folders for messaging, and phone is slower. But still OK to use.
I gave it to my lady friend and just got a white GS2 for myself. Android is really good.

If you want to upgrade your phone to BADA 2.0 then you will lose all your data and app.However you can backup your data like contacts, SMS, Songs etc. but there is no option to backup apps. so you will loose these apps.
But at the same time your apps. will be there in your samsung account so you can reinstall all these app.
My advise to you is first backup all your data and then login to your samsung account through kies and verify your that your all apps are there in your account or not and then upgrade your phone.
For any help you can ask me any question regarding upgrade to BADA 2.0
