    So I got a new Captivate about two days ago and it was working fine until yesterday night. I was on a flight and I put the phone into flight mode and turned it back on after I got off. When I did turn it back on, however, the 3G icon disappeared and I lost all connections to the internet -- the calling and messaging still works though. I tried rebooting and all that good stuff, but still nothing.

    As for the wifi, I have a mac osx (10.5.8) and I tried to create a wifi for the phone but it won't work. It works perfectly fine when I don't have the WEP password set on, but when I do set it on, it won't work. I see it on the list and I put in the password, but it won't connect. It only says it remembers it. (I was using another wifi, but my data usage seems to be going up anyway?)

    Please help!

    Thanks in advance.

    did u try rebooting by going in recovery mode? if yes, then replace it as soon as possible

    it might have come with bad batch of hardware...
