I see everyone here updates their firmware through multiloader and non-official means. I don't want to void my warranty or brick my new phone. Is it safe to get new firmware from Kies? I've also read complaints about Kies not working? What would you advise me to do? Or...do I even need to update my firmware? I plan to install Kies, then update my firmware tomorrow.

Samsung knows that nobody would spend a fortune on Bada powered phone if it costs in the range of Galaxy S. In a couple years of time, Bada will replace the Android OS on Samsung's high end phones.
whats the problem with my i780, recently, my battery drains in less than 2 hrs. i notice my phone is hot which is unusual. will appreciate if anyone can help explain. my phone is 2yrs old. tnx.

The installation discs for the software included are in small CD-format. My notebook has a slot-loading optical drive so it can't read those. What do those installation discs contain? And can I download them online (the real, official versions, not some megaupload/torrent stuff)?
Bada is a New Baby OS of Samsung. So inorder to promote it
samsung has released Bada in the form of Samsung Wave.
Suppose if Bada is released on a low end mobile with no amoled display
can you dare to purchase it ? And Bada would have vanished within weeks.
To conclude, those who own wave are really lucky for owning
a High End Mobile at a very cheap price!!
IT'S ONLY A MARKETING STRATEGY.. Samsung has already achieved
a huge success in it!!
Does accelerometer works on third party java applications or not .. my friend's using samsung monte, in his phone accelerometer does not work in opera mini and other installed apps, it only works in default application.

Go to Games and More, and tap on the three dots "..." at the bottom center. Select "Use visrtual Keypad" and uncheck the java application which you are trying to use. You can also select "Fit to screen" and uncheck the java application to get better clarity. Hope this helps

Welcome to Wave family.
I think you need to drain the battery first before charging.
Hey Guys, While running any Java application(Opera mini, java games, etc.) two grey colored tabs appears at the bottom of the screen which doesn't look good. Is there any way to hide those tabs?
I have the Samsung i780, with Windows as the OS and is fully compatible with my laptop. Can anyboday tell me out of experience how compatible is Bada on the Wave with Windows?
