  1. Dear users
    i found a speaker problem twice no speaker sound
    i have purchased wave on 13-09-2010
    service center replace the ringer
    again after service no speaker sound

  2. Thank you for the superior article, so I have been a samsung person for roughly 5 years now, and I recently upgraded from a samsung omnia i910 to the Samsung Wave and to this point I’m loving it! (I do pass over a few options of my omnia even though) I am from Halifax Nova Scotia in Canada, I was originaly going to attend it out for the galaxy s to reach on the bell network but determined to buy the wave as a substitute and keep myself $400.
