They promised a 2.2 upgrade "shortly" when it shipped in mid-2010. When will we see it??? and is this incompetence, or is it fraud?
can you not install android froyo as for galaxy s, these phones are actually identical.. so why not? have anyone tried?
Amazing Phone :) All the people who used to flaunt their iphones and stuff have mouth wide open, its the best cell of the Galaxy series specially in terms of looks. Hopefully froyo comes out soon but im not complaining with eclair either. Anyone thinking to buy this JUST GO FOR IT!!!
does anyone know if this phone got updated to froyo or will get updated? wifi hotspot on at&t?? thanx
I absolutely love this phone. It has everything a high-end phone should have and it way outperforms the Iphone4 on just about every feature. If you're reading this for help with a purchasing decision then read no further, this phone is the one you want. A+++++

Everything, and everybody else has their unique disadvantages. You cannot compare say, your husband, (if you had one) to me (though, I would encourage such behaviour). Your said husband probably has traits I could never aspire to, and, the opposite is equally possible.
Anyway, back to a practical criticism of your pickiness:
SMS is continuous, it depends the carrier you use. I have access to last month's conversation if I slide my finger up the screen, then back down. I can only say that your alternative, to the Captivate's shortcomings, is to transfer your files via Bluetooth, or your KIES-USB cable to your PC, then upload to Facebook. You can't hold Cappy liable for it's shortcomings when you compare an entirely different OS, i.e. iOS vs Android.
Wifi kills battery faster than 3G, and it's normal that when you get home after using the phone all that that you are down to your battery's bones. Did you even starve the battery down to 1% before charging it to optimize its life? Android 2.2.1 extends the battery life, yet again, depends on your carrier. Sucks if you are from the USA, last continent to get a Cappy + Andy update.
I use the phones Task manager, System Task Killer (lite), and Advanced Task Killer. I manage to keep my device between 140-160mb RAM usage
I haven't ever tried to do the things you are doing, but at least know you let the phone warm up to you and that you are not necessarily a fashion victim.
If you can bare one, or two fine points that beats Iphone straight out: FLASH PLAYER 10.1, and Super AMOLED. And what the heck...Android!
I've had all sorts of smartphones out there. My recent was the iphone and I decided to give this sexy thing a try. I loved it...for the first 4 days.
Problems with this phone were the simpliest things which really disappointed me. I hate that the text messaging isnt a continuous thread so I had to download an app for that. No problem there. I had a G1 before and that was in issue back when the OS was 1.2 version. You would think they would have fixed that bug by now.
Second problem, for some reason, I cant upload a video to facebook. I had the option to upload on youtube, twitter, gmail, but not facebook. Sucks!
Third, I cant attach a video as an sms. When you go to your gallery section, and send a video, I can only see pictures and those are my options to send. When I tried sending a video through the text app that I was using, it says that the video file was too big. Sucks again!
Fourth, the battery life on this phone is terrible. I turn all unecessary things like, GPS, bluetooth, etc. and I press the Task Killer app every so often but I still come home to 10% battery left.
I have a 3GS and this phone runs on 1gHZ, and my iphone is still faster on wifi or 3G.
Has anyone else experienced these little complications with their Captivate?!?
I loved this phone for its sleek and sexy design, but thats just not cut it.
