The quantum phase and the related fields have attracted considerable attention. The geometric phase of spin-1/2 particle in the magnetic field has been discussed comprehensively, but few of spin-1. In this paper, the exact solution of spin-1 was obtained by using rotational frame method. The problems of the Rabi oscillation, dynamical phase, and geometric phase were solved.
