Anonymous, 26 Jun 2012we need one!!!!!!!!!!!! Any give a ways.........I requested that Samsung Warranty Dept send me a brand new phone not refurbished. I picked it up myself at to guarantee that is was new and not refurbished although I had to travel over 100 miles round trip it was worth it to me. I no longer use AT&T as my carrier so this phone is available for $220.00 that includes the otter case that I purchased separately.

samsung captivate galaxy s is my first cellphone and it is absolutely awesome. love it. has so many features which makes ppl realy envy you... dont miss it. it rocksss.
why or where are the front facing camera. ......?? how i gonna use skipe????? and how i gonna use mirrors apps uhh? ???? please answer
my galaxy s was a gift and when i first saw it i said this is same touch screen phones around.But i used the ip webcam software on the camera and i love it so so much am in to cctv cameras business and again is doing wonders on a private network for monitoring purposes.
It was an ok phone till about a month or 2 before my phone upgrade came up then it started shutting off by itself, stuff popped up on the screen randomly and it started running horribly slow. I'm thinking att and samsung have a deal that wrecks your phone around upgrade time so your forced to upgrade.
I love my Samsung i897 Captivate...I had it for about one year now and the only problem I had I fixed it online. By far its the best phone I ever owned. I recently upgraded and its blowing my mind on how fast it can process.
This is an awesome phone. I've used my friend's iPhone 4 for a few weeks before buying it and the Captivate beats it. I prefer the Captivate to the iPhone 4. For some reason the iPhone just feels like a normal communication device and I got bored with the phone very quickly. As for the Captivate, I'm really enjoying it, there's always something new to try or do.
It's pretty fast in all areas including the web and supports flash content. Some movies don't play but when using alternative players such as MoboPlayer then all movies play with great quality. Using the tons of 3rd party apps is where the Captivate really starts to shine in it's glory.
I'm running Android 4 OS ICS. It can be slow at times but this is usually if it is installing an app. The battery life is bad. It's power usage is probably due to the number of apps and screen size. There's also a slight problem with the speaker cause it tends die, this only happened once thus far. I simply press on the speaker and it's back again, this seems to be a design flaw (as noted on forums).
TIP FOR BATTERY LIFE:
I've dimmed the screen light and lost 1/4 battery life over night. Then tried a brighter screen light and lost half battery life over night. So try changing the screen brightness and see if it helps with your battery life.
