The Captivate was only sold via contract through AT&T. Even so, at the time of it's release it was the top of the line Galaxy S phone and AT&T sold a lot of them. And, they continue to "sell" them as "free" contract phones.

Officially, the updates stop at gingerbread (2.3) but I have put ICS on a couple and it runs it very well indeed. IMO, better than gingerbread. But, as it ages, it is dropping back in spec's to a mid to low end phone which in comparison to the current models, you can understand why some don't think to highly of it.

FYI, AT&T is a GSM network and the Captivate is a quad band "world" phone so it should be able to operate on any GSM network outside of the US.
If the information is useful, Like the post, if the person was helpful, Thank the member.
