    I'm going to pick one of these up today at the AT&T store. I know about the GPS issue, but are there specific hardware issues I should look out for, like creakiness or buttons that don't light up, and that kind of thing?

    The IP4 has build quality variations - some of them have loose or "wiggly" home and sleep/wake buttons, and it's reasonable to assume every mass produced device will have manufacturing tolerances, but to those who have the Captivate, what (if any) are signs I should ask for another one while at the store?

    Thanks in advance; looking forward to this phone!

    I got my phone on day one. So far I have not discovered any issues. Also, I've been following a number of Captivate forums. It seems like people do not have much (if any) hardware issues with Captivate (and Samsung Galaxy S in general).

    My first captivate has a stuck pixel that showed as a red dot on the screen. I didn't notice it until I got it home. So, take a good look at the screen when you get your new phone.

    btw... at&t gave me no issues with exchanging the phone.
