    Tried to download off the getjar.com site and said my captivate was not supported...could it be that the site is jammed right now or has anyone else had problems downloading from their site in the past? I WANT ANGRY BIRDS!!!

    I also went to that site and if you go to the list of eligible phones the Captivate is not listed. I selected Fasinate and entered my phone number to receive a text of the download but when I received the text and went to the site it said that our carrier is not a supported one with getjar. There are some people on the facebook page that have posted a link to the .apk file, but I don't have my phone rooted so I can't install the .apk.

    Why they didn't just put it on the market is beyond me?

    Already overloaded the server. Getjar issues are caused by overloading, too. Sigh. My 20 month old daughter wants more angry birds! :p

    It will be on the market this weekend. Who knows? Maybe it just takes a couple of days to get posted, so they used GetJar for the pre release?

    Search twitter for the apk file if the link does not work above. The carrier (AT&T) does not allow sideloading. So, if you did not root/sideload enable your captivate, you won't be able to install it even if you can down load the apk file to your phone. This is why getjar does not support it. You can just tell getjar you have the Fascinate or the HTC EVO or other similar android model. Then download the apk file to your PC, not from your phone.

    There is a program called wonder side loading program that will let you push the file from your PC to your phone via USB if you don't want to root/sideload enable your phone.

    It's not supposed to be on the market until after 24 hours after being on getjar.

    I would just be patient and grab it from the market once it's available. It'll be there in due time. :)

    There's obviously more to it than just sideloading problems...you can select ANY android device as your phone and they want to text you the download link. Then it tells you that your phone is unable download Angry Birds or ANY app.

    Why does Getjar want to check my phone number/carrier before letting me download. I believe this actually qualifies as a crock! Getjar is a SELL-OUT!

    Anyone else have a link that isn't bogged down?

    I agree. It's a GREAT game, but well worth the wait.... What's a few more days anyway? It's not like I'm waiting for froyo.... :rolleyes:

    I don't think it will be in the market, visit www.gizmodo.com and www.androidcentral.com, they articles state that Rovio decided to go with Getjar instead. Also, for the record, the app is free on Android but it comes with Ads. So be ready to get some Ads while playing the game.

    Still not showing up in the market for me... Guess I'll just side load it.

    Edit: Found it on appbrain, and installed from there. Man, searching the Android Market of my phone sucks.
