    SO my colleagues and I figured out away to get into a samsung captivate if you are locked out. First call the phone. then use the mulitasking on the phone by choosing headset then search as if you were setting up a bluetooth from here you should be able to go to contacts and then from contacts to applications icon and from there settings then to privacy. then factory wipe. Now this will get rid of all the stuff in your phone but at least its better then samsung telling you to send the phone to them for 7-10 business days. It was awesome. After the wipe you will be able to get into your phone.

    Another option.
    1. Pull the battery
    2. Press the center of the volume button/toggle and power button
    3. As soon as the white AT&T screen comes on, let go of the power button (not the volume button)
    4. You will be in the recovery screen, use the volume toggle to select the 2 clear cache and data options. Then you can get into the phone and do a full factory reset.

    Or just use Odin3 one click restore, linked in the main sticky to return to stock
