phones fan, 03 Dec 2010you can do all that on the wave but can you tell me what is your current phone?and why wave in... morehello phones fan, i've said it before, i want wave because of what i think could be a great media playback experience coupled with what can be considered an amazing hardware. It's my first time to jump on touchphones and it seems that it is a good choice to start. I'm currently using nokia. And i really love symbian i admit, and sometimes it makes me think twice whether to abandon the platform or not. But the numerous negative feedbacks about nokia touch phones scared me. I first consider n8, but after waiting for it's launch, all i see are people complaining for numerous problems i might've encountered myself if i decided to preorder.
But yes, those problems i enumerated last time bug me. However, it's good to hear that there are solutions to that problems from third party apps. Another is the fact that wave gets older and older as we speak. I'm afraid that a new better solution from bada platform might come next day after i decide to purchase. Wave 2 could be it, if not for its downgraded display.
If i'm going to answer on what attracted me 'the most' on wave is because it's still number 1 on user ratings. That could mean something.

I'm currently downloading the bada 1.2 files and have decided to update the fw of my phone manually using multiloader, but before that I have 2 questions especially to those who have already updated their firmware to 1.2 (esp. UK residents)
1. I'm from the Philippines. Will there be a problem if i upgrade my unit's fw? I mean will there be compatibility issues? (though i know im taking risks of doing it, I decided to gamble coz kies sucks big time! no update still after 5 months of using the phone.
2. 194 mb is the file size of bada 1.2. Is it the fulldownload file. I need someone to verify this. pls.
Whatever assistance you can provide to me regarding those queries will be greatly appreciated.ty in advance.

Anonymous, 04 Dec 2010that might be the new stocks. i'm just guessing, because the early batches might have arrived ... moremaybe you're right, but as far is flashing is concern, id rather have my phone flashed by samsung center tech (even though i successfully flashed my previous samsung jet many times) and wait for bada 1.2 to come cause mine is ver 1.0.2 already...tnx...
hummingbird, 04 Dec 2010bought it at wellcom sm megamall cyberzone,price is 18,450 php...that might be the new stocks. i'm just guessing, because the early batches might have arrived with the asian region firmware installed; newer batches may have the european version. if you want to upgrade the firmware, you could try the multiloader method which you can install the latest Bada. i'm getting one after christmas, and if there's still no asian update, i'll just manually flash the phone with bada 1.2
