Do rply.I think I just went to the Social Accounts app and selected Samsung Account (this only applies if you have set up the Samsung account) then Delete.
You can add the Samsung account back again later.

Im from Singapore and only weekend i on 3G network, for weekdays i mostly on 2G cause using wifi is faster. So i think if u on 2G network also can let the battery life last longer, cheers.

On the network I use in Canada there is only 3G and no 2G.
Where you live do you disable your 3G connecting and just use 2G for the standby time?

That's a 33% drop in 48 hours for you while I have a 11% drop in 16.5 hours. There for when my phone drops from 89% to 67% it will have lasted 16.5x3 or 49.5 hours.

My wave, since fully charge on monday morning till now, 24/7 on still left 67% left. But i do agree with the way u charge ur wave, and do not charge when it totally flat out.

For those who missed it and are still suffering from a poor battery life.
Recently I disable my Samsung account and it has improved my battery life substantially. So far it has been 16.5 hours and has dropped 11%. During this time I have used WIFI for 5-10min to download a game and update another game. I have also made/received 5-10min of calls. All the time I have been on the 3G network but with data turned off.
Before disabling the Samsung account I got less than 48 hours out of this phone. Thanks again to the person who suggested disabling it.
By the way. The last 3 charges I have been charging my phone from 20-30% to full and then unplugging the charger. I do this because I have read that li-ion batteries can be weakened over time by full discharges and leaving them at 100% charge.

Dr.dharmesh (india), 01 Sep 2010How to get birthdates in calander on yearly remider and speed dialling in samsung wave8500?If you input the birth date into the contact information, there is a birthday widget that will remind you in advance.
Gags, 01 Sep 2010hi thanx sama,
samsung provides a pouch with the phone. i'm currently using that. should i go... more@ gags
well gags i don own a wave as of now(planin to get it next week) but i can tell u watever i've read in this forum...
see the screen is already scratch resistant so it can take care of small scratches by itself but in case if it falls or u accidently bump it into anything a bumper might help(screen guard might hamper the performance n plus ur already using the pouch, i hope this shud be enough but if u still don wana tk any chances go for a screen guard too)
I don knw abt the bumper u wud hav to find it by yourself, its not easily available in India
n abt the charge cycles every1 suggests to charge it complete wenever discharged, cant say wat wud happen if it is no charged completely
try charging it at the night or in office itself..
