    I would like to use an external microphone with my captivate- is that possible. I can't seem to get it to work. I'm currently trying to capture audio from an external source, via a double male cable in the headphone jack of the external source and the input/output jack of the Captivate. Nothing. (I want to convert an analog source to digital, just to have on the phone- it's easy to do with a PC, so I was going to try doing it with the phone).

    Do I need a special cable- maybe some kind of splitter that would give me an external microphone but still let me use headphones? The headphones that came with the phone have a microphone for phone calls, so I imagien the phone can do this... I just need to figure out how to connect it.

    Haven't tried this yet... but I'm wondering... if I use the apple 3.5 to composite cable that lets me watch my phone on an external monitor... but connect it to a composite-to-female-3.5, wouldn't that let me connect an external microphone?

    What's the pinout on the Captivate's 3.5mm port?
