[deleted post]Your indecisiveness will end the moment you hold Wave in your hands. :) I too had gone to buy x6, but the guy at the store was using wave and he showed it to me when i mentioned i want a touchscreen phone.
He took out x6 after that and I handed it back to him in 1 second and bought wave. I am glad he was using wave and I got to see it. I seriously would have regretted getting x6. :)
Hope that helps. Just go to a store and see for yourself.
Samsung wave is smarter than another smart phone. It's video, sound, speed & battery is superb. I am really satisfied. Thanks to Samsung.

Some of wave users do upgrade the FW(from other countries) through Kies even if not recommended. Maybe when they have new FW updates, they will open up again.

Hoping for a miracle !! otherwise I'd have to bid goodbye to mail for exchange and set it up by wizard. I doubt it will support push sync though !
Hi all, I am seriously considering purchasing this phone within the next few weeks or wait until the Samsung Beam is released. I am not interested in the Samsung Galaxy as it has no camara flash. Anyway the Wave has a great battery, super fast 1GHZ processor, decent camara with a flash for night time etc. However can I watch youtube videos without installing software? Where can I get free and/or a great selection of Bada applications (esp games)? Does the battery drain quickly after game playing/internet surfing? Also Bada OS is limited to only this phone whereas Android (in other new Samsung phones) has a huge range of apps. If the Bada OS fails, then I have wasted my money. Please give me advice. Have any software updates happened for the Wave since its release and what is internet browsing like?
Harbax Grewal, 07 Aug 2010It has poor net connectivity &speed against android os.Speed is better than 2.1 Eclair, Net connection depends on your ISP/GSM vendor
Dont understand why the hell samsung is not opening the "paid app" section for the indian store !!
I cant get any good games !! :( :(

farzad, 08 Aug 2010thx man, it worked.It took 3 days for me to realize that it needs one another push to make the headset worked. Unluckily the Samsung service center staff did it for me.
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2010Please tell me how to increase the sound volume.To increase the volume(courtesy by Jatin):
Here is the way...
1) Type *#197328640#
2) Press 5 ( Audio )
3) Press 2 ( AP Volume Config)
4a) Press 2 (EAR Config) or
4b) Press 3 (SPK Config)
5) Press 1 (MP Volume) - to increase the volume of music files or the 5 key (FM Radio volume) and so on and so fort.
We can see the 7 lines (0-6 ), we can increase the value of all lines (these are the lines that define the level at each support ), you can change any of them or increase only
last value of 58dB to 75dB and 100db max .
To enter double digit, for 0 line press 0 on the number pad it will say write on the top right hand corner on the screen. just tap on the bar 3 to 4 times quickly below the number key pad and then another keypad should open. enter desired number and press ok twice...done.
NOTE: sometimes u have to press many times to open another keypad.........
