I found that there were a lot of Samsung Wave's owners complaining about Wave's battery life. Some last 4 days and some last less than a day.
I have been using Samsung Wave for more than 2 months now. Wave's battery usually last about 3 or 4 days with the following setting:
Screen brightness : level 2
2 emails and 1 facebook account with updating interval 15 minutes, 3 hours and 12 hours respectively.
Moderate use of video, music and web browser, totally about 30 minutes a day. And about 10 or 15 voice and video calls.
BATTERY USAGE IS ABOUT " 1% " AN HOUR.
However, my Wave's battery started to drain too quick in the last few weeks averaging about 4 and 5 % with the same setting. I thought my battery was gone bad and starting to find solution. But the battery is still draining about 4 or 5 % even though I wasn't using the phone at all.
And then I started to realise that I started using Samsung account for FOTA, Social Hub and App store which basically doesn't work for any of those. Today I deleted useless Samsung account and my Wave's battery is back to normal 1% in hour now. I am so happy .
As far as I know, Samsung account maintains connection with Sammy server 24/7 by default and you can only change the interval if you are socialhub premium user. I think that drained the battery so quick. Therefore, if you don't have social hub premium, save the battery by deleting "Samsung Account" from "My Accounts". If you have social hub premium then, change the polling interval to the value you desire.
I want to put the screen shots but my phone will need to be hard reset and I don't want to start from the beginning. Sorry guys.
Can someone confirm that if you have samsung account logged in and drain the battery so quick and save the battery by deleting samsung account?
Hope to hear feedbacks!
My FW is XXJG3 and I am a poor New Zealander who can't buy Apps from Samsung App store, who can't use Premium hub and who can't update FW through Samsung Kies either. Thanks to Samsung Firmware World for that. Really appreciated !

3. Not sure. Can't find it in my wave. Maybe others could answer that for you.
Dear wavers help me, 30 Aug 2010Hey guys, need your help again!!!!!
When i try to upgrade using kies, everything goes well, t... morerl.dll is a trojan (googled it). :-)
Better do a complete uninstall of Kies. Don't use the add/remove programs. Use a third-party uninstaller like revo uninstaller (it's free before but you can find plenty of free uninstallers). It will remove all registry items and other stuff left behind. Then restart your PC. Download the latest Kies version, install it then restart your PC again. Then run Kies. See if that works. Good luck.
I'm using Windows 7. No problems with Kies and upgrading my FW at all.
Can any Wave oner pls help me. I just love the specifications of this phone and I'm planing to buy myself a wave very soon but need help with 3 questions.
1. Can i block specific numbers to calls and sms (Block list) to prevent them calling/ smsing?
2. Does Wave have privacy feature like other samsungs where you need password to open messages, pics, videos and so on.
3. Does Wave have voice dialing?
Please help. Thank you in advance.
