Update to Bada 1.2 available now in Thailand via Kies.
New firmware is DXJL3. No pb at all, upgrade went well.
Advice for a good upgrade: connect first the phone in mass storage mode, it will install important drivers. Then connect in Kies mode, it will install other drivers.
Camera flash bug has been fixed, the intensity of the flash is lower for close up (before pictures were overexposed). And camera quality is much improved.
Good job Samsung !!!

Wen you do a hardreset u dont need to remove ure sim and ure Memcard.Sim card stay in wil keep ure provider settings intact wen u start up after a HR,Memcard files wont be deleted,But the apps that already in the memcard wil need to dl again from ure samsungaccount in ure wave,So take some notes b4 you HR ure wave,Like settins and wifi code's and ure samsungaccount PW,The hard reset code u can search it in this forum,aswel,we handel a lot in the past in this forum about HR

- If you look Apps for Wave,most o... more1.There are many great apps (atleast in indian store).Wave has almost all the built in features for which nokia and android give apps.May i knw wat sorts of apps u require?
2.Bada does not need any update.Bada 1.0 is THE best starting OS in the history.Nokia give updates every month (:D) but they add just 1 minor feature in each update.Thats really not done!!!!!! bada 1.2 came after bada 1.0 which is a major update.And now bada 2.0 is coming which is a MAJOR update.
3.KIES is running fine.U just need to hav some computer knwledge to make ur kies work to update ur phone.
4.Alarm clock problem is solved in BADA 1.2.
5.Again, u should hav some brains how to synchronize mails.I could do it in 15 mins.Take help frm someone or google it.
6.NAVIGATION???????????? Are u mad???SYGIC and NDRIVE all are available in websites with all maps and are free also and hav free navigation.
7.A software will be made for MSN also and i think i saw one in ROCKETALK.Try it.
BADA OS is just 1 yr old and see the apps growing!!!!I think it is the best phone both in hardware and in software terms.BADA does not hang,no virus problems,best hardware,and how many apps u want in a mobile????There are enough apps in d appstore and d quality is also good.Moreover ,if ur a gamer,then it is THE BEST phone in dis price.All IPHONE games are being ported to wave.
So,think before u post..........
I wanted to buy s5800 Wave but there are some major issues
- If you look Apps for Wave,most of them are crap and useless.
- Samsung is not intrested supporting bada enough(updates etc)
- problems with updating the phone
- problems using alarm clock.It doesnt work reliably
- problems with synchronising emails
- lack of proper navigation
- lack of MSN messenger
- NO SPOTIFY FOR BADA OS!!
Yes it looks awesome and camera quality amazing but nowdays it is not enough.
