    I'm a new member of the Android Community. I started over at Android Central, but I've frequented these forums as well. I want to start by saying that I've gotten more confirmation about a Samsung update being pushed out soon. I had a conversation with Samsung about 45 minutes ago (roughly 8:30pm, 7/26/10). Here's what happened...(it's quoted because I posted this over at Android Central as well). Read up.

    Here's my thread over at Android Central...

    Unless you're part of the conspiracy...

    Please use the search button before you start an additional thread. This post should have been made in the already existing update thread.

    Pretty awesome. Has Samsung turned over a new leaf? I hope so.

    Lighten up buddy, he's excited :)







    But yes, this thread could have been incorporated in the other thread. Very exciting news nonetheless. If Samsung keeps up the stream of updates, I'll be a very happy man.

    We're taking the word of someone with 2 posts? I don't have many posts - but this is what? The third post from someone claiming to have contacted Samsung and was given inside info about an update. If this is true wouldn't a real viable tech site have gotten this info?

    LOL. The funny thing is that if the iPhone were having an issue this would be all over the place, but this issue hasn't shown up anywhere yet it also affect users worldwide on every version of the device. Btw, I don't believe for a second that the fix has already been issued and is being pushed out. The reason; I talked to Samsung support a few days ago and they said they were aware of the issue, they were evaluating it and did not have a timeline for when things would be fixed or even started for that matter.

    It is being reported - at least on some tech sites and blogs. Search for "Samsung Captivate GPS problems" on Google News. Unfortunately it's just not making major news because it's not an iPhone.

    It's not making major news because, unlike the iPhone's problem, it doesn't affect a user's ability to make or receive phone calls. After all, the unit is primarily a telephony device, not a location device.

    Oh, and in no way did I claim to have "inside info". I didn't claim to "know someone" or anything. I called the general number from their website, just like anyone else could do.
