    Hey everyone. Used the instructions on this forum to root my captivate, and I have to say, I'm in love with my android phone.

    Don't hate me, but I was an avid iPhone user until fairly recently. I certainly wasn't anti-android, but I had invested a fair bit in my Apple device and the apps therein, and it was pretty hard to let go, until the smegging battery started to have a lifespan of about 45 minutes on a full charge.

    I've followed android for some time (since it was just a rumour), I'm a linux user and admin, only running windows or MacOS in a virtual environment everywhere but on my gaming PC. I think i've made a very good choice on my phone and haven't seen too much hate towards it (and what i've seen is relatively more directed at it's carriers or completely irrational).

    I'll be around on these forums for some time.

    I'm falling more and more in love with this Captivate. What a fantastic phone.

    I'm eating up apps like you wouldn't believe. I also videotaped my youngest daughter's Christmas concert this morning (she's 22 months) and it turned out pretty good! The camera wasn't even an afterthought when I got the phone, as I'm not a shutterbug (that's my wife's forte), I may actually take some pictures with it!

    Eagerly awaiting 2.2 (waiting for the official release, just being cautious) and digging around on these forums for hours at a time :)

    I'll try not to lurk, but that's in my nature.

    Welcome to AF!

    Lurking it fine :) I'm sure you'll be able to offer assistance to other users as well though.
