Wave noob, 10 Oct 2010Hey buddy I'm keen on purchasing class 6 32gb card.what's the brand of memory card you are usi... moreMy 32gb card is class 2 sandisk cannot find anything better than class2 @ 32gb..My 16gb card class 6 is kingston but i honestly cant see much speed difference..From now on i will stick with sandisk as ive done since 2002.I cant promise this but some testing has revealed class2 sandisk can reach write speed of 7Mb/s ..The class2 means that the card MUST write at minimum speed of 2Mb/s,,class 4 4Mb/s and son on but this is s aminmum standard..
To be honest again the kingston class 6 seems slower compared to class 2 sansdisk so now are we in a another mess were specs are specs and lies are being told..Like battery times,nobody has ever reached these stated battery times and cars doing 74 miles per gallon none of public or pros have achieved it..
I just bought wave a few days ago. Everything seems to be great except the ringtone. When there is an incoming call, the ringtone volume is very slow and only become loud after two seconds?Is it normal? I need feedback form wave users.
you can open all kind of documents, but if you want to edit them, you have to buy program.
Hey guys anyone really using this phone, can user tell me that is it possible to edit excel sheet n other documents? And does it comes preloaded with handset or user have to purchase the licensed copy? I Want to buy this phone plz reply. Thanks.

Steps to install Product Code of ur choice-
My original product code was Product Code: GT-S8500BAAFOP.
When I installed the S8500XXJID_Flash Full, and choose XEU in preconfiguration setting,
my product code was changed to GT-S8500BAAXEU in registry.
I tried to revert back to my original GT-S8500BAAFOP by installing all available
full firmwares, starting with S8500XXJF1 to S8500XXJH3 (using OXC CSC) but the registry
still showed my product code as GT-S8500BAAXEU.
At last I found the solution. And with this method, you can freely now choose the product code you
want for your phone. Just follow the steps below:
1. Install S8500XXJID_Full with the CSC file that contains the product code of your choice
(Example 1: OXA for SKT, XEO, XEF. XEU, ITV, DBT (Germany, France,UK, Italy, etc
2: OXC for FOP, THP, EUR (Spain, Portugal, Greece, etc)
3. etc, etc.
2. After installation, hard reset phone. Then go to admin mode => preconfiguration => and
install the CSC of your choice. Whichever you install will now be your product code.
Connect phone to KIES and check your windows registry.
NOTE: If you install S8500XXJID_Full with the default CSC file (in example 1 above) it's all easy.
But if you install with any other CSC file, phone will normally reboot constantly if you try to go
into MENU and setting. Don't worry, just install, hard reset, then enter admin mode to install your preferred CSC.
Once done, your product code will now be that of the CSC you have installed.
You can now put off phone, and flash your phone with that country's firmware and update to latest firmware via KIES.
OBSERVATION: I have tried this experiment with 2 XX phones and it worked perfectly for me.
Others should try and give feedback.
ADVANTAGES: If you have, for example, product code GT-S8500BAAFOP (Spain) with latest firmware as JH1.
And in Germany, for example, KIES has newer firmware, say JH7.
You can easily change your product code to GT-S8500BAADBT and upgrade via KIES.
Here are Some of the Codes which u can use to check ur phone info..
*#1234# - Shows Firmware version.
*#197328640# - Internal Settings
*2767*3855# - Hard Reset
*#0228# - Battery Info
*#0*# - LCD test
cp UART (full power) or ap uart (powersaver) modes via *#8740#
Administration mode: *#5239870*#

Hi mate, just want to check with you did you run any external widget within you WAVE (e.g. EvMemo) ??
I was wondering whether Samsung can integrate that such widget into it Bada OS. It's so useful to me, but that "EvMemo" seems to have bug where it can slow down the phone, date numbering not display on 30th every month, phone hang after long run of this widget.....etc.
How about the file manager on Bada 1.2 ?? Can we now view the detail of the file like the file size, file type, folder size.....etc ??
Sudheer, 11 Oct 2010Hy Ramakrishna,
I too am from HYD. Could u pls let me know where (which store) u found Wave... moreHi,
You can buy wave at jagadish market in Hyderabad for 17,500. You dont have them available at other stores.
ac.phil, 11 Oct 2010hi,
i'm not very much sure with this but.. samsung wave differ depending on the region.? ex. ... moreim from philippines.. i think its not true.. mine only has the original 2g internal memory.. and the camera??? you can choose from 2 mp up to 5.. it depends on you if you want to save more memory then go to the lower mp.. but if you want to capture high quality pictures then use the 5 mp..
wave is the best.. proportion of proce over its quality
Bada OS is so smooth compares to everything else. Now make more phones with Bada OS.
Extremely good phone, even for me who is always unsatisfied. Cannot think of a single bad thing in the phone.
Gps works great, even if i don't have usage, only for fun.
For more free maps, go to Route66 web site, download Route66 Sync. This way you can have maps of any country for free on you memory card (but navigation is not free).
there is no need to say you that there are so many jealous people out there, especially when something is the best.
bada is young operating system, but so powerful and fast.Bada has potential to be the best operating system.When samsung wave was tested on gsm arena, there was about 100 application, but every day number of applications are increasing.Now you can find over thousand free and over thousand which you have do paid.You can install java application as well.For about year, number of application will be over 10000.
sorry guys these are right liks....
hi guys i've a question that i've visited samsungapps.com and it shows 1296 applications for wavw s8500..
but i've read some comments saying that there are a few applications available for this phone even if you read wave review there is written under MAIN DISADVANTAGES that "Limited number of available applications"
i want to buy this mobile, i'm a little confused PLEASE HELP!
