hi guys i got a problem ,i saw update in need for speed ss i clicked it but inbetween the update stopped and it showed a fatal error occured delete this app , now i cant use this game , please help guys now the game is being priced , i dont want to let this game go by ...........
Lately I have a problem with the battery (or with the part of the software which do the battery check). After 2-3 days, I shut the phone down before going to bed (let's says it's @ 30% percent), and in the morning when I power it back on, it's below 10%, so I get a warning sound that I should recharge the battery. When I check it with Battery Check app, it shows correcty, just about 2-3% below what was showing last night. Sometimes it helps to reboot the phone, but most of the time not. Sometimes it even corrects itself on it's own. I'm wondering if someone has experienced this on his phone? btw, I'm using the firmware which came with the phone (bought it in May this year). Should I upgrade it to a newer one? If so, which one is the latest/best? Thanks!

see the difference
Samsung Wave S8500 Battery Talk Time 15 hrs 30 mins
Samsung WaveII S8530 Battery Talk Time 6 hrs 30 mins
9 hours of battery life difference is huuuuuuuggggggggeeeeeee..
n I dnt think anyone would want a smartfone with so less Talktime...Crappppp..total Crappppp..
Anyone here from samsung , plz convey our dis-gratification to Samsung.. They are just annoying buyers now..Either they would not hv released S8500, or would have maintained its production & availability.. I don't see any other mobile manufacture company doing like this..Samsung s u c * * in this matter..

Nobody ported any other OS yet to Wave..so dual OS thing is still too far away (if at all possible).
Do not buy this expecting dual boot thing.

could anyone tell me what are the improvements in the latest firmware version that ends with "I2" from the previous version of "F2" ..do i really need to go for this update?
if anyone wants to try E-Buddy in their wave it works fine.the wave is not in the list of phones but if you download it from the site directly to your phone through the phones browser then you choose omnia as your device and it installs and works fine.currently using messenger and facebook contacts without problems.

Manas@Wave, 22 Dec 2010Hi Chhaya,
Do you really know how to use Smartphones.
There is Google Map on my Wave S8500... moreI regret for using harsh words but its really an agony & I feel pity for those Stupids who dont know how to use SmartPhones but are very active in giving reviews & opinions.
Opinions & Reviews are always helpful but intentionally writing negative comments to restrict or influence others from buying a really good product is really a cheap act.
When it comes to comparison every Handset/OS has some pros & cons but things are getting changed & features are getting added with upgrades. Only thing which will be needed is a bit of Patience & sometimes more patience :)
My only suggestion: First learn to use & explore SmartPhone like Samsung-Wave after that talk about the OS. Be a critic in a constructive way instead of criticizing every good thing which you dont like.
Its an amazing phone & supports mostly all features which works with IOS or Android(except VoIP applications, though Skype in Java Version works well on Wave but calls can not be made at this moment) which works with IOS or Android).
BADA 1.2 is still on hold for a official upgrade because it got leaked & distributed. Samsung is really concerned about this & will definitely have some strategy behind not releasing the Bada 1.2 upgrade.

Do you really know how to use Smartphones.
There is Google Map on my Wave S8500 which can find my location both on wifi hostspots as well as GPRS/Edge/3G.
Route 66 (Pre-installed) apart from GPS thru Satellites also find my location on Wi-fi & 3G.
Are you sure you have a data connection to use Google-Map to locate your position or you are in an open area to receive GPS signals through satellite??
Yes currently it doesnt have any good ScreenSaver designed for it though there are some which doesn't attract much. But how can this make the OS worst??
Learn to use SmartPhone first than talk about OS.
