Get a stylus for it, they're only a couple of quid, useful for anyone with normal sized fingers smile

You've seen my TP2. But Windows Mobile is like... 10 years old, and it was built for resistive touchscreens and Stylii (sp?). Only ever had one capacitive touchscreen handset, WinMo's swansong aka the HD2, which was more hassle for HTC/Microsoft to develop, than it was worth.

I am still gobsmacked how people still need to use styluses with these modern OS's though... I mean, I'm running WinMo 6.1 (so not even the relatively more touch-friendly 6.5.3/6.5.5 BETA's - they don't call WinMo the "stylus-happy OS of yesteryear" for nothing lol [it's a dig at it's antiquated GUI], and yet I think I use the stylus once in a blue moon, usually when I'm tired.

If a modern handset/OS requires a stylus on a touchscreen, it begs the question as to why it has a touchscreen...

First of all, the Samsung Wave DOES work with a stylus.

I wasn't commenting on the practicalities of it or how old the OS is or how the UI should be improved, I was giving a very simple way to work around not being able to press one key at a time.

The headphones are the aerial for the radio, even some of the cheaper Samsungs have them inbuilt but for some reason not the Wave.

Why don't you just take it back and get a different phone? There are better "touch" OS's out there than Bada...
