    If there's a problem it's more than likely to show up within the first week or two. I say yes.

    Yep, I would have jumped on this too if they had it 2 months ago.

    I decided to go with a new unit from Wirefly. Here's to hoping I made the right choice. The phone should arrive Tuesday.

    The first Captivate I had actually didn't have any GPS problems. I should have held on to that phone, but thought Samsung would never upgrade to 2.2. I have an iPhone 4 right now, but I can't even be inside my house and keep a conversation going without the proximity sensor kicking back on, or the call dropping. I never had these problems with my 3Gs, or the Captivate. I have to be able to use the phone first and foremost as a phone, and then secondly as an entertainment device :)

    It also requires a new activation. So, this is not available to current customers. I have not logged on to premier yet to check though. It's probably there but may not be free.

    My friend just added a second line to his account and got the captivate
    and turned the plan into a family plan(they are the only ones who use the at &t acct)
    so there is an option

    which also educated me on the fact of how my friend was able to get a refurb iphone 4
    and sell it for like 400 bucks to someone
    and recoup over 250 bucks.....

    Kind of like a kick in the shins. I ordered my refurb Captivate Tuesday evening and got it Friday. Went to look at cases at AT&T and noticed they dropped the price from $49 on Tuesday to $0 yesterday. Almost makes me want to call and gripe.

    But I am loving my very first smartphone!! :)
