It's a great multimedia phone with a stupid,ever buggy alarm clock made me miss an important appointment today! I guess Samsung intended it that way, that the Wave, and Wave fans may remain in a deep slumber forever and stop whining about updates and bada 2.0 :D
AnonD-27987, 04 Dec 2011dear Jofa,
upon observation, I think you might have mistook a "kies 2.01 update" ... moreno mistake. After I got the message on the phone, I thought Bada 2 is released.
I did not update anything because there is no update to BADA 2 trough kies. Google Maps still does not work and require update to BADA 2 or higher trough Kies.
guess I can just wait till they release BADA 2
Hi all i am bit blond(pardon the pun) how do i change or update the firmware.
How can i download dictioary in this phone because whenever i tried found message unsupported content.
hmm Im facing quite a dilemma here I really am tempted to flash the phone right now to the latest bada 2.0 beta software...
main thing that I liked in bada 2.0 is that
1.video recording now has a touch focus great for "macro videos" hohoho!
2. the live wallpaper themes, and the live lockscreen(seems like this is still exclusive to bada 2.0 and no other os has it yet)
3. overall new user experience
but it seems that all these firmwares are still in beta
and likely to have quite a number of bugs...not to mention not being able to upgrade via keis( have to reflash it to an official one) once bada 2.0 officially launches
and it seems as of now, I have luckily flashed a bada 1.2 that is very very stable, no restarts, no hang ups, no lag, even when at application crashes the phone only returns to the main menu unlike my previous bada 1.2 firmware wherein it restarts randomly....even when texting!
So any advice guys? what do you think? should I flash to bada 2.0 beta just to access the great touch focus on videos....or should I just wait for the official firmware?
any help would be greatly appreciated....thanks ^_^

upon observation, I think you might have mistook a "kies 2.01 update" to your actual phone firmware "bada2.01" update
I also encountered this while I was connected to the internet and launched keis on my computer
I was soo excited when a message "an update to 2.01 is available" wasnt really able to read the whole message I just clicked on the "ok" button so as to download the update immediately
but while downloading I was puzzled that the phone wasnt really updating to its usual course, or no message of "please do not disconnect the phone"
and also, the download was fast
after the update installed I was shocked to see my phone is still in 1.2
after a bit of research it seems the update was only for the KIES...and not on the actual phone firmware
and to answer when will bada 2.0 officially be released via kies? No one knows the exact date yet...only Samsung was quoted in saying that its supposed to be released q4 this year
which is no more than this month of december ^_^

Hello guys nd gals, i connected my wave 4 the 1st time with wifi. It connected to the bsnl wifi broadband seamlessly but when i tried to use it, then i found that there was no speed at all. It takes upto 30 seconds to open the homepage of google in operamini; my gprs works faster than this. My brothers old n86 is able to acheive download speeds upto 200 kbps easily. Is there any setting or something that i am missing? I'm running on BADA 1.2. Please respond. Thanks in advance.

if it restarts that often and the service center guys themselves have already flashed the phone, perhaps its already a faulty hardware? can you ask if they can flash the phone with a different software region?
pleae keep us updated good luck ^^
dear sir lil grumpy: err it is unfortunate that your wifi signal has been underperforming as of late
wifi signal problems have alot of factors to consider:
1. the router that you are connecting to, perhaps it is having some problems? If you can confirm that the router is okay lets confirm if the internet provider is at optimal level or as good as what you were able to access with your wave 1
2. Perhaps its in the firmware of the phone? I noticed that the different firmware have different wifi attributes
try upgrading or changing your firmware lets see if it works
good luck and keep us posted ^_^
I just got this message while trying to access Google Maps on my Wave S8500: "Google Mapas reuires Bada 2.0 or higher firmware version. Please upgrade your firmware via Samsung Kies."
Kies updated mi phone to S8500XXKF3/S8500OXFKA1 (CRG), wich is not BADA 2.
Location is Croatia. What is going on with BADA 2.0 !?
How do i update?
Hi wave fan, i use WAVE 1, BADA 1.2 for a year ago, i can not record voice when calling, anyone can share how to record voice when calling? or is thee any application for it?
Wow Fellow wavers the BADA OS will be turning TWO (2) shortly wonder what sammy will provide for the loyal wavesters :-p Hope its something good hehe
try using the following code *#8740# this is for power saving ,if you have mutiple applications opened your battery life also gets depleted very quick if you are indoors adjust your screen brightness your touch sensivity your vibration ,make sure also you dont have your bluetooth on and avoid charging phone and use it especially usb charge then you are bound to kill the battery.
