    Are all of the Galaxy S phones running the same basic software? If so, why does GPS not work on the Captivate but does on other Galaxy S phones such as the ones for T-mobile, Verizon, Sprint, and the overseas version?

    From what I understand, the Vibrant (Tmo), Captivate (att) and the euro Galaxy S all have broken GPS, the ones that work (so i hear) are the Sprint and Vz versions. As the story goes, Samsung caught the error after the euro, att and Tmo versions were released so the epic and fascinate (sprint and Vzw) got working GPS. It does seem however that since they cant be extremely different and they all share the same GPS chip( I believe), it does seem to be taking a bit long to fix the damn things. I hope they slip in some added fixes/features for taking so long. Froyo would be nice, but im pretty sure that wont happen until closer to the end of the year.

    Although they are simular, the firmware is not the same from one to the next. The firmwares for each version are not interchangable

    The told us a while ago that we would be getting it in September, which just happens to be this month. Still got half the month to go, and we haven't heard any word on it, so I'm gonna venture a guess to say that it won't happen. But hey, you never know.
