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.
