Anonymous, 04 Aug 2010how did u get JF3
how is your battery life now@ Anonymous
I'm not getting the firmware from unknown source or from some other website. I just update the firmware from KIES. A few days ago when I plug in my phone to PC for installing some app then KIES told me that there are an update for my phone firmware and also KIES itself.
So I choose to update KIES first to version "22.214.171.12474_2" then after restart the PC I update my firmware to JF3.
In between the process it works very smoothly without any problem occur.
Battery life getting better, phone get more responsive and better stability. I'm not sure what are the BUGS have been FIXED in JF3 firmware.
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2010Heloo users.. Plzzz help in using GPS functionality tried a lot but worth nothing,, pllzzz... morego into "settings-connectivity-location-my position".there you will see your lat. and long. and a few other things like altitude,speed and direction.also there is a free google maps based "my location" app in the app store which allows you to send your position via e-mail or sms.
Has someone tried geotagging using the camera? How much time it takes to lock and what is the colour of the satellite receiver icon in the top left if it is locked?
Anonymous, 04 Aug 2010you can save up to 1300 sms and 1000 contact 40 dailed, received and missedThe number of SMSs you can save depends only on the memory available mate. :) Just set it to save on your memory card. The bigger the memory, the more msges you will be able to save.
waitn 4 mine, 04 Aug 2010reading everyone's posts it doesnt seem like there are any american wave owners out there. is ... moreI dont think that Wave is available in US. :) I think I saw that in the keynote conference that Wave will not be making an appearance in US. That is why it does not support the US 3G band.
Dunno why this is though. May be they did not want a competition for Galaxy S in such a huge market ??
Samsung's stupid promotion techniques ! Ugh !

I think we need to remember that bada os is still very young. If it is apps that you crave then go for android or apple, lets remember the first android or iphone app store took at lot of time to grow and the bada app store is only a few months old. If you want an all round beast of a phone at a great price for the features, then wave is the one for you. I have had it for a couple of months and are still finding things that i can do with it. By the way I have had no probs with GPS and have voice guided nav through route 66 maps that works like a dream on the wave. I get sat lock within one minute sometimes faster so I'm not sure about people saying that the GPS is weak, maybe you should read your manual!!

Saurav, 04 Aug 2010Sorry to say, Wave doesn't have a Speed dial option. Maybe future FW upgrade will fix it. RegardsHi..wave has speed dial in the form of favorites in contacts..Plus it gives a widget called BUDDY NOW which is kind og speed dial n message..why does one require favourites??so that u can immidiately gt a contact list of people with whom u talk frequently..

I have been using mobile phones since 1993. To be honest with all of you, i have tried 10's of different mobile makers. This phone right here, SAMSUNG S8500 is by far the BEST PHONE I HAVE EVER TOUCHED IN MY LIFE THUS FAR! Yes, it is NOT perfect and there will NEVER be a perfect phone! But this is the closest it can get to PERFECTION! Great Job SAMSUNG!! I HIGHLY recommend this phone! Get it, use it, and TRUST me you will fall in love with it! 9.8/10.0
