If you download the UCBrowser app (free), there is a eBuddy button under the quick links menu. You can use this to chat on facebook. It's not brilliant, but it's the best there is on this phone at the moment.

This application is no longer supported on some versions of Bada, an upgrade to Bada 2.0 will resolve this issue. The roll out is currently underway and KIES will notify you when it becomes available for your device. The latest version of KIES is available from www.samsung.com/uk/kies.

Question

Can I update my firmware to Bada 2.0 on Samsung Wave GT-S8500?

I have had this phone since October 2010 on a contract with T-Mobile. I would like to know if I am able to upgrade my firmware to Bada 2.0. I have read through forums and have noticed that Bada 2.0 was released on January 1st 2012 for the S8500. I have tried upgrading it through Kies but there is no option available to upgrade. It says that I have the latest firmware (Bada 1.0) which is clearly not the latest. My phone has a "Phone Lock" because I am on a contract with T-Mobile.

My Phone has also been having problems such as sudden shut-down, Widgets closing due to low memory and YouTube not playing videos on a WiFi connection.

I am also not able to download a wide range of new app's from Samsung App store as they are designed for Bada 2.0.

There are videos on Youtube showing a Samsung Wave GT-S8500 running with Bada 2.0.

Question

When is Bada 2.0 being released in the UK.

Seems that with the success of the Galaxy s2 Samsung have totally forgotten about their own OS. When is bada 2.0 coming? I can't use Google Maps due to not having 2.0. Bada users are being treated like idiots when we should be rewarded for choosing a Samsung developed OS over the competition.
