For three days, I can neither make nor receive voice call! What could be the problem? It is not earpiece or mouth piece.

Updating this phone to the latest Jellybean OS or even Kit Kat AKA Android 4.4 is a daily easy process if you follow the instructions correctly if i were you id go with jellybean because my captivate froze a lot on Kit hat here is the link to the video for Jellybean- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hadizqVkwn0
you can find the 4.4 update video but trust me you are better of with jellybean i hope this comment helps all who want to upgrade to a higher OS :)

I'm actually running Cyanogenmod KitKat daily build on my old Captivate. It does well with it actually. Just don't get crazy with too many open apps. Overall, it's been a great phone
