From long time I have been postponing upgrade of my BADA firmware and moving from 1.0 to other higher versions for the fear of losing the stuff of my mobile. I dont want to loose any of my current data, apps (Specially the password storing apps), I dont want to loose my stored SMS and Phone contacts. Can any one please guide me and let me know when I upgrade do I loose all the stuff on my mobile and I need to start from the begining?
Second please let me know, does Skype work on any of the upgraded versions on Wave 8500?
Thanks in advance..

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.

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.
