Samsung Wave Fan, 13 Aug 2010Hello Everyone,
Please Help Me How To UpDate My Samsung Wave GT-S8500 To New Version Via WiFi... moreDear all,
Those who are facing problem to update the firmware I request all to check this website. Where you have a tutorial
[Tutorial] Unlock all updates for all Waves by Kies
you need to register to view the forum.
I followed the instruction and upgraded my firmware to JF8. Some websites say about flashing the Phone with Multiloader but I feel it’s safer to follow this instruction and upgrade it through KIES
Best of luck
Selvaraj, 13 Aug 2010Hi! Can any pls tell me how to connect my Wave with Samsung PED TV via ALLSHARE?Ur TV should be having DLNA first... Check your manual on how to enable wireless streaming, nd ull b good to go.
Thanks Vikram for quick reply.
One more query, when i checked the detailed specs of Wave on Samsung's website, why does it says N/A for WiFi in connectivity column.
bada os is very nice its very simple and there are some good features which r exclusive to wave well as such there are not much limitations but yeah some apps which are available for symbian n android i mean (some ) are not available for badA ! internet is outstanding over wifi , but nice on gsm connection ! more over i hav sony W995 and xperia x10 and n 86 there signal streangth is weak , w995 is good as compared but wave is simply amazing full signals !! and there are no features that i miss more over there are so many new new things in thi phone that i am fogetting all the old features !! WAVE = SIMPLY AWESOME !! but the perfect flash player for browser is missing !\its flash lite 3.1 ! its should be 4.0 ! more over movies sub titles are also there ! sound is amazing i mean externAL !! and of headphones is rocking better than walkman w995 !! screen is ahhhhhh no comments suberb ! u can increase the sound of phone to 100 db !! it will blow ur years !! battary is best i mean nothing can be better compared to wave's batt !! its my perception tc !
hey wavers, im form the UK. when i bought my Wave it didn't have asphalt5 pre-installed so today i checked the app store through my phone, i go to games and i see they added 2 more new games, and one of it was asphalt5 for download-and its free. they need more gamess
EG, 13 Aug 2010hey guys.. somehow i lost the "samsung apps" icon and i wanna get it back..how?did u loose the widget or menu button. in case of widget, just go to task manager and kill all widgets. later when u go to the home screen, u will be able to get it back. same thing happened with my mail widget a couple of weeks back.

Also how is Internet to use, i mean how is the browser & is it convinient. I use Wifi a lot so signal should be good too along with good browser. Also do you feel the absence of some features or is it just par with competition.
Blue, 13 Aug 2010Hi guys, i have zeroed in on Samsung Wave. But wave users, can someone tell me the drawbacks o... moreWell there are some negatives I found after being a month user.
1- There should be a Google Maps application for lite GPS use, coz in my country the Route 66 is not that flexible, at least not in my place. So more applications are needed undoubtedly.
2- The Multi tasking is good but not polished. There are some apps which closed automatically. So there is a lot of room for improvement.
3- The most boring thing is the Kies, it's really hard to connect the phone to your PC.
I can't say any more drawbacks beside these, maybe others could tell. Otherwise it is a beautiful device, a real value for money. Hope this helped.
yeah dude the batt gets hot ..! but i din notice any updation problem ! all is perfect so far i am realy happy with this phone i hav ran benchmarks on this phone the results are more than perfect ! moreover battary gets hot when u use phone while charging otherwise not ! and the main problem which i hate alot is dodgy flash support !! bt yeah the flash most of the times work ... rest is almost perfect !
Hi guys, i have zeroed in on Samsung Wave. But wave users, can someone tell me the drawbacks of this phone as i have read here itself that its battery gets hot while just in 30min of usage or Battery's life is less, or some problems with Bada's updation, etc.
Please point out true drawbacks, i know all the positives but also state the negatives which only a user can state.
i dunno y peopole are sayin that JF2 was never in INDIA .. I stay in delhi and i hav FIRMWARE JF2 since 3 weeks ! and everything is good !!

Anyway we shouldn't discuss about this matter more.

And not that you or me can tell. But since it was taken off (And by that I mean that it is no longer available even through kies.), there must have been a reason for samsung to do so, most possibly a bug.

And you said the Firmware has been taken off, and I think 'taken off' means that it was there sometime. But it was there never. That's what I meant to say..you got me wrong..
