    I had about an hour the other day in which my Captivate was displaying 5 bars with 3g connection, no abnormalities at all. Except it wouldn't send/receive text, data or calls AT ALL. I could access my voicemail, strangely. But nothing else. It kicked back on as I was heading to the AT&T store to ask about it, so I wrote it off as a one-time glitch initially. Then it happened again several hours later. I took my Captivate back and exchanged it for another one, because I absolutely love this phone when it's working.

    I was just wondering, has anyone else had this problem or heard of anything like it?

    Nope, that was the first thing I checked, in fact. It would just do it randomly, lasting anywhere from 30-60 minutes.

    Well the first one didn't start showing the symptoms until I'd had it for a week, so I'd say it's too soon to tell on this one, being only two hours in so far... Will update if I start seeing similar troubles on the new one.

    I'm very pleased with the two I bought on July 18th.

    So far not a single issue.
