    How's everyone doing?

    I just got my Captivate, and I love it so far.

    To start off, I have a couple of questions:
    1. Can I buy apps from the Market using a Debit Card?
    2. What are your thoughts on these accessories that I plan to buy?
    - Car charger: Amazon.com: Rapid Car Charger (CLA) for Samsung Captivate i897: Cell Phones & Accessories

    [FONT=&quot]- Case for phone: http://www.amazon.com/Amzer-Luxe-Argyle-Samsung- Captivate/dp/B003VQS43U/ref=sr_1_13?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1289531083&sr=1-13

    [/FONT][FONT=&quot] - Bluetooth dongle to go with Torque application for android: which one do you think would be best? http://motors.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_kw=bluetooth&_kw=obd-2&_dmpt=Motors_Automotive_Tools[/FONT]

    This torque application can save thousands of dollars worth of gauges and data logging, so I think it's one of the best apps for car enthusiasts.

    (If anyone has a Subaru, let me know. The Captivate community seems very similar to the Subaru community. An example is when we're driving and we see another Subaru, we give "the wave")

    3. Any must have apps? Any tips for a noob Android user?

    4. How can I get better at Swype. My friend was using it and it seemed almost faster than typing on a laptop.


    Thanks a lot for your time.

    Tennis.

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    With the Android Market you can provide your card number to the Google Marketplace. Does your debit card have a Visa or MasterCard logo on it?

    Sometime in the near term (between now and who knows when) it's rumored that the Android Market will start accepting PayPal. This will, hopefully, make the Android Market more accessible to Android owners in other countries. As for me I'm looking forward to it because I prefer not putting my credit card numbers on any more sites than absolutely necessary.
