First I would like to thank those of you who have helped me navigate the Android waters over the past few weeks. I'm not a Captivate hater but I am a little frustrated, after a few error messages I was able to update to the latest firmware OTA but now my phone wont connect to the At&t server at all (I know more updates aren't available yet but what's going to happen when/if Froyo hits?) and now Kies is no longer recognizing my phone. I see Samsung now has a Kies mini USA version but their download appears to be down or not responding but I know have little faith in that as well. I'm starting to think my Captivate may be defective. I was considering doing a system restore but I dont want to go through the trouble just to be disappointed with the same results. I know there's been a few threads discussing pre and post update issues but am I alone here? I am out of the 30 day return period and am considering going through warranty exchange but I'm not too thrilled about getting a refurb. As a side, my GPS issue has improved with the latest update, go figure.
