    Well just popped into update my last thread that i wrote witch was Bye Captivate hello Motorola Atrix 4g..l. As you can see by the title of this thread mine arrived today........

    Well as of 20 mins ago us central time i saw a FEDEX truck outside when i went into my house i had a box and when i opened it i was shocked to see a new MOTOROLA ATRIX 4G inside... What a suprise didnt think id be getting it till atleast march the 6th so i thought id let you know and get back in the next few days to let you know how it is running,,,,

    Good bye captivate you have done your last switch of on your own it will not be missed i carnt see how the phone can turn of on its own atleast 6 or 7 times a day and you dont no about it till you pick it up good job there were no emergency calls because if i had recieved any while the phone had decided to turn itself of samsung would be hearing from a lawyer...

    I have been hearing rumors that the Atrix spontaneously combusts :O

    this is what i heard, the spontaneous combustion happens when you dock the phone in the laptop dock without having the at&t tethering plan. its at&t's way of making sure you dont tether without paying.

    I'd actually love to see a review of the Atrix from a Captivate person. I have to ask, too, if I bought the Captivate at full non-contract price a few months back, is there some sort of subsidized Atrix I can buy or do I have to pay full price again? I still love my Captivate, but I do have to ask if I get lured away...

    Unless you have an upgrade avail or find a nice person at AT&T that will let you get it at the upgrade price or slightly discounted you are looking at buying it with the non contract price

    And may I suggest checking out the atrix forum as I am sure a former captivate user will do a comparison there, just like I found in the inspire forum

    Sorry if I seemed rude, I havent had much sleep and I'm a lil on edge right now

    Well ill just answerthat question i have dsl through at@t and a wireless router if you use the phone as the modem yes you do have to have a tethering plan but if you use the wirless to access the net on the phone you can use a dock and that way you dont have to have a tethering plan.. And a quick update on the post this mourning i have been using the phone to add stuff and accounts it runs as smooth as hell in call chat fantastic clear no static over the phone while you are talking not like the captivate the new froya gr888 and the one main thing it dont shut of on its own... The phone viewing thing like opening apps going through the settings and widgets gr888 fast viewing the web np at all there soon as you press on them so to me i did not make the mistake of changing to atrix very plz with it..............

    I'm trying to get some resolution with AT&T with regard to the Captivate (early upgrade or something). But I want to wait out until the next batch of dual cores come out. I learned a while ago to never jump on the initial release.

    That, and Moto's locked bootloader...

    As trivial as it may seem..if I can't put swype on it, I don't want it. I must use swype 100x more than any other feature in typing out emails, texts, etc. I can do with a little faulty gps, but not having swype is a deal killer

    Congrats on buying an outdated phone.

    We all know the Galaxy S 2 is the new kingpin, just waiting on launch dates.

    After I've had a couple of days with my new Atrix, I'll post in the Atrix area (vs. creating noise here). So far my impressions are extremely good!

    I can also assess the stock, near stock and totally hacked stages of the Captivate vs. the Atrix in basically stock configuration, and will probably throw in a little "vs. the iPhone 4" for good measure :D

    As it has already been stated..there is a large amount of irony in a Capt user early adopting again.

    Atrix reviews should go in the Atrix board. If a Captivate user is interested in a review, even one from a former Captivate-owner's perspective, they can certainly go read there.

    Pretty certain being a Captivate owner didn't prevent you from exploring the boards for other phones on this site. ;)

    Careful....I got slammed for having the same attitude on here.....got the Atrix and love it.
  20. And that is cool and all, but I have moderated before on forums, and this really is one of those belongs on the other board things.

    No disrespect to the Atrix and all...have not used one. Looks like a fine phone and all. But Atrix love belongs on the Atrix board...

    I'm going to get the SGS2.
  22. I am looking forward to what that has to offer myself.

    im getting the sgs2 also. the atrix has been a big let down to alot of people if you read the reviews, i wouldnt trade my captivate for one straight up, maybe if they offered cash with it ha

    I'm leaning towards the HTC's new inspire 4g rather then the atrix.

    I had the Captivate since July. Got the Inspire and used it for 2 weeks. Just took the Inspire back for the Atrix.

    I think the Inspire is an amazing phone. Just wasn't right for me. If you have any questions about the Inspire v. the Captivate or Atrix, let me know.

Samsung Captivate Forum

The Samsung Captivate release date was July 2010. Features and Specs include a 4.0" inch screen, 5MP camera, 512GB RAM, Hummingbird processor, and 1500mAh battery.
