    So when is gingerbread going to be available in the US? I want to give gingerbread a try before I finally make the switch to a ROM. I just can't stand the stupid lag, freezes, battery life, and everything else wrong with 2.2

    Samsung: 2.3.3 is ready!
    AT&T: okay, we'll test it for our network.
    Samsung: okay, we'll be back in one quarter of a galactic turn to check on your progress.

    I'm curious as to why people are complaining so much about their phones. This is android, the entire point of an open-source software is to try things different from the manufacturers! There are already 2.3.3 and 2.3.4 ROMs out there, in addition to a slew of incredible 2.2 ROMs with the best battery life out there. The fantastic thing about this release is it's going to have a captivate-specific 2.3 build for developers to work with, and that's nothing but good.

    I've been tempted to go to a custom rom, but with a stock Gingerbread right around the corner I'm leaning towards waiting (which was my exact logic with Froyo).

    I'm paranoid and cheap. I think I'd perfer to wait until my phone is out of warranty before I mess with it too much. I had a problem with my phone that I almost bit myself if the but just by rooting and not getting a waranty replacement, so I'm a bit gunshy about a full rom replacement.

    I have to admit I'm a little gunshy about flashing a ROM as well. It's not that I don't think I can do it, it's that I'm still in warranty and if something went flooey, well, I'd be hooking up my old LG Shine again. Eep.

    I feel the same as GreatBigDave. I think that if an official 2.3 update isnt available by the first or second week of July, I might just go ahead and flash my Cappy with a custom rom.

    Honestly, I thought I was never going to put a ROM on my phone. That just seemed like a dumb idea to me. But after experiencing the many pains of what is Captivate's version of 2.2, I just gave up. I went with Serendipity 6.4 a couple weeks ago and I have to say, I feel really stupid for not going with a ROM earlier.

    Meh. After installing Cyanogenmod I could care less about what AT&T churns out.

    Been using the leaked Gingerbread ROM for about three days now. Best stock ROM to come out of Samsung for the Captivate. There are still a few minor issues, but better than the official Froyo ROM by a landslide.

    Root it and ROM it. You'll be much happier. I've been rooted since December, never even wanted to try the "official" Froyo update. Been on Gingerbread for nearly a month, now on 2.3.4. Netflix is awesome on my Happy Cappy!

    I'm rooted and I had a ROM before the official 2.2 but couldn't deal with the crappy battery performance...

    I got the following text from AT&T today:

    AT&T Free Msg:If you haven't already updated your Samsung Captivate to Android version 2.2, a free download is available. Using a PC browser, type in SAMSUNG's Digital World and follow the instructions on the site.

    I upgraded from 2.1 to 2.2 the first day it was out, so could this be a forerunner to a 2.3.x update?

    I got that message a couple days ago myself. I found myself wondering the very same thing.

    Would you have to upgrade to 2.2 before moving to 2.3? Just curious. I upgraded on day one myself.

    I got that message nearly 6 weeks ago, even though I upgraded to 2.2 on the first day, also. I think that the message is just an AT&T screwup. (AT&T screwup???? Nah, can't be.)

    I got that text also, although I updated the first day available. I also wonder if they were trying to get these on 2.2 to aid in getting 2.3 out. I won't hold my breath, but I do hope nonetheless!
