    hi, my carrier (honduras) uses gsm 850 and wcdma 850/1900 as their bands. Which version of the galaxy S will work here? I already tried the Vibrant and got no 3G.

    please help!

    I think there is an 'international' version. At least that is what I think I got in Singapore. Captivate, Vibrant, etc are meant for the different telcos in the US market.

    If I remember correctly, 850 is the band used by AT&T/Rodgers/Bell, which would mean that you would need to get the Captivate (from AT&T or Rodgers) or the Bell Vibrant (which is really just the international version and is different from the T-Mobile Vibrant). Personally, if choosing between the three, I'd go with the Bell Vibrant since it has the front facing camera and FM transmitter that the Captivate lacks.
