    I really like the puzzle piece feature :)

    I am really curious to know how well the touch screen works. Is it heat sensitive like other touchscreens? I usually shy away from touchscreen phones for this reason. I wear acrylic nails most of the time and if I were to vuy a touchscreen and it doesnt work well with nails like other phones, i'd be very dissappointed.

    it is very sensitive but yes it is also a capacitive touch screen, meaning whatever you use to touch the screen must conduct electricity, not heat. but nails wont work on it, youd need a resistive touch screen which will probably be somewhat hard to find on higher end touch screens, at least i would think so

    You can get stylus's on ebay that work fine. My wife has long nails and that solved her problem. These Stylus have a soft rubber tip that replicates the finger. She likes it alot.
    Here is one from Android Central
    Samsung Captivate Stylus - Android Central Store

    Thank you!

    Out of curiosity, it desnt seem like the stylus would have a place like, inside the phone or anythng....so, where does she usualy keep the stylus so as not to lose it in between uses?

    there isn't a place for the stylus on the captivate.i think the reason why they made the captivate bigger is to replace the stylus. the last time i saw a stylus attached to a phone were the palm smart phones. those phones had the screen size considerably smaller which made the stylus necessary.

    maybe a case with a small amount of room to place the stylus in might help.
