    I recently jumped on the android bandwagon (HTC ARIA) coming from a razr v3 LOL. I wanted the captivate BAD however decided at the last minute to wait but needed a new phone. IF they address the gps issue/2.2 in the next 26 days I AM THERE~ I will be watching these forums like a hawk at any news of the update . If not I will keep the aria, surprised how well it works just typing on it is kind of a pain. Ive been in the at&t store several times to play with it and it IS a great phone, but being tied to it for the next 2yrs I dont want a headache from it.

    It's a great phone that is really only plagued by one issue.....GPS. Mine locks but takes about two to three minutes to do so. Not ready a problem for me cause my gps rarely gets used.

    i tested my gps out for the last time last week on my way to tuscaloosa, after owning it since the day it came out, and it honestly worked pretty well. i didnt notice how long it took to lock on but it didnt seem to bad. but if it is something that someone plans on using frequently then it is a legitimate concern

    2.2 is rumored to be this month, hopefully it is, but i dont know if that is official or not. the aria is nice though, i almost bought it till i heard of the captivate and i knew immediately which i would get. but the aria doesnt have the screen and size which i think makes it worth the investment over the next 2 years, it will still be a decent phone by the time of my next upgrade which i really like

    I am pretty happy with my decision to come back to the Captivate. I know it's a bandaid, but when I turn on the wireless network assist for the GPS, it's pretty damn accurate. It's good enough for my current situation. If shit gets real and I need to have accurate GPS guidance, I'll just break out my Garmin.

    There was some confusion as to the purpose of this thread - so - if you're looking for a place for a kick up your feet and discuss the other stuff that was here, I've moved the other posts and gave the thread a name -


    Knock yourselves out on that over there - this is kinda the "deciding on Captivate" thread.

    We now return you to your normal programming...

    (Remember - any problem with this, you take up with me via PM, thanks.)
