Default Can't Install Amazon App Store

I understand that the Captivate running 2.2 should now be able to install the Amazon App Store. I received my Captivate about 3 weeks ago with Froyo 2.2 already installed. No updates are available on-line. I am not able to install this app. Under Settings-Application, there is no checkbox for Unknown Sources. I have entered my email address, clicked the link to download tha app and when I tell it to install I get the dialog box saying Install Blocked.

I am not ready to root my device just yet. Is there some way to get this update to allow side loading?

Numerous threads on this topic. Besides rooting and enabling non market apps-the consensus is just call ATT & insist on finding a knowledgeable tech person to immediately enable your device ota
