I'll be getting the Captivate soon and have started the preparation process. 1) appbrain.com to pick apps I want to install OTA (over the air) Here is my list of apps. jhnstn00's My GalaxyS Apps 2) Gmail account has all my contacts and Calendar events updated. 3) Create a google voice account. I haven't done this but others may want to. 4) Accounts already subscribed to Dropbox, Evernote, Slacker, Pandora, Skyfire, Opera Mini, Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, XDA, Android Central. 5) chaoscentral on this forum (and XDA) has a root captivate thread which i will follow. Hope he will do a "Step by step Rooting the Captivate for Dummies" for us noobs. When I get my phone, will install Appbrain app to allow OTA installation of my apps. Once all done, I will have my apps, contacts, Notes, misc in Drobox, pics in Picasa, and Calendar backed up in a cloud. Since Captivate is locked from sideloading, not sure if all these apps will load. What are you doing to get ready for your new Galaxy S? What must haves will you load?
