anyway my firmware is s8500DXJF2/S8500OLBJF1(XXX)...
please help me with the upgrade issue.thanks a lot..^^
mga tol... I want to update my firmware..but when I try to connect my phone on kies it says that my firmware can't be upgraded....how can I deal with this thing?,..please help....
my phone keeps on disconnecting whenever i try to upgrade via kies.. it automatically disconnects when i click the upgrade button. how can i deal with this guys? btw im from the phil.
I have bought unlocked Orange(France) Wave recently.
OS version is bada 1.0 (S8500BVJK1). Two questions are:
1. If I upgrade it to 1.2 flashing wiht S8500XXJL2 will it still remain unlocked?
2. Will IMEI be changed after the flash?
i have seen friends use opera mini on internet in there phones, while having 0 load.. means its free.. is that possible in opera 10, or it is only available in opera 5.1, have anyone tried using this? its a nice feature when we can facebook, without any incurring any cost...surf for free..
Anybody looking for wave can easily find it in Dubai...
its totally out of stock in india....
Hi fellow wavers!
Love the phone.
Feels fast and stable with the 1.2 firmware.
However... one question.
I find it very annoying when using the browser and the search-bar ontop always pops up when U least want it to. Is there any way of changing it from this auto-hide mode? As I surf and want to hit some option on top... the search-bar is always there in the way, making it very frustrating.
Thankful for answers and input.
can anybody tell me what is the current price of S8500 Wave???
mj23, 04 Mar 2011 ..to anonymous ..i have tried doing everything you said to solve the "forever connecting... moreSorry tol. Don't have any more suggestions. :-)
1. You can try using another pc or laptop.
2. The desperate resort (very risky): LOL
If you re-install Samsung Kies, do a clean uninstall first. Try Revo uninstaller (freeware before) or similar uninstallers. That way, the registry will be cleaned and no left-over files will be left. Word of CAUTION: Be sure you delete the right registry entries, and also the apps you downloaded via Kies will be deleted. I don't know if copying your downloaded apps and pasting it later after re-installation will do the trick.
If you're not familiar with editing registry entries, DON'T DO THIS PROCEDURE. :-)
And 3, just bring your phone to the nearest Samsung Service center. (Kung malapit lang, dalhin mo na.) Try to do # 1 muna.
I tried to update my phone today. Got a message that a new FW version is available. Went through the process, then suddenly hit a snag. Something about the connection being closed down by the remote server. Restarted my laptop and my phone too. And the new FW version message is gone. After bada 1.2, I'm moving on.
This is my last post here in GSMArena tol. Hope your phone will be fixed soon. If only people here would think first before they post. (Ang iba kasi dito, kung maka-ingles na, akala mo kung sinong magaling.) I have little patience for such behavior. (Kung sinong pikon, talo. Pikon ako eh.) Against my better judgment. (Iba ang pinaringgan ko, hindi ikaw tol).Hehehe.
If you still have problem, try this 9152551291. Maybe I can give you more help.
So long. Enjoy your weekend everyone.
An absolutely amazing phone with unused potential (Bada OS). In short it's probably the best made phone that I've ever had, but the software while stable and neat is very boring and limited if it comes to the app market.
it s a gr8 phone....the touch is very good nd specially d camera has outstanding results , apps r also quiet good and many r free...d screen resolution s very gud (super clear)...dere s some prblm in uptading sftware but i m very much happy with sis version too...i find it bttr dan many phones expensive dan dis...n dose people who want to do facebook chat r othr chts...den leave palringo...n go to getjar.com nd download ebuddy ...den u can chat n enjoy ...overall i love dis phone...it s d bst i cud hv bought fr 18000/-... enjoy
I am maby going to buy this phone so I am asking a question about it. How big are the ram and rom in this model?
Bought the Wave 8500 just 2 weeks after launch...and the only regret is that the number of apps are fairly limited. It has better hardware than even the Iphone4(SAMOLED is far superior to the Retina Display) Bada OS maybe new, but considering this fact, it is still nearly flawless. The beauty of BADA is it capitalizes on the strongpoints of the Android and the iOS platforms, while neglecting their weaknesses. By having this phone, you will never miss an iPhone or Android phone.
