To all Pinoys:
Need help here. Is 19,900 a good price for Samsung Wave? It's the gray (one i've been waiting for), only the basics included in the box. No leather pouch and no sd card. I've read some posts here that some store are selling it as low as 18,400 (one even mentioned 17,900). I forgot to ask the store if the phone's the 8 gb version and also it's warranty. What do you think guys? 1,500 difference is a big savings.

This is the older version of Kies from UK Samsung website posted by Chinaman earlier. The link is definitely working.
sushant, 25 Jul 2010thnks can u pls tell me the steps again o upgrade and do i have to install the older kies vers... moreTry with the latest Kies first, if it doesn't work then try the old one. There are no steps, just make sure before the upgrade that your phone is in USB Debugging mode under Connectivity-Settings. Then just plug the usb in, run Kies, click the firmware upgrade icon and sit back n relax. The whole process will take around 20 mins depending on your ISP's speed. Let me know if it worked.
din work for me either....tried with kies latest version it download the binary files bt latter says update failer try again later....and when i press the 3 keys together download mode appears and then nothing happens even if i connect it to pc....

mariya, 25 Jul 2010what does this means 'DNS failed' , when i press on /internet/ thats what it says!!!what is i... moreDNS means "Domain Name System" which is basiclly telling you that you have no internet conection.if you bought the phone sim free youll obviouslly need to download the settings(MMS and WAP)through the samsung site or call your service provider so they can send them to you.if not then maybe try it in another place incase its a coverage thing and maybe try also if it works through wifi.if you have all the conection stuff in place maybe you should call you company cos it might be a service provider problem.
this z a hell of a kickass cellphone
got everything in it and at 16.8 k its a steal
I just get this phone

I think with respect to its price it must beat the iPhone

What it does is fix some bugs which previous version had. You might notice an overall performance difference, a little battery life improvement and something like that. I didn't find any changelog for the new fw yet.
