    I have been reading the threads regarding the GPS, Battery and email issues and some seem to have it, others seem to not. So I was wondering if maybe a certain group of phones made it out while the QC guy was out to lunch. This exact same thing happened in 2007 when the iPhone was launched. It was determined that the line of units that came from a certain site was causing all of the issues. They actually narrowed it down to the serial numbers. If you had an iPhone within that string of serial numbers, you simply went to an Apple Store and swaped it out. So I was thinking maybe we can do some exploration using the Captivate's Manufactored Date (or DOB). I received mine when I registered my Captivate on the Samsung web page here is the link:

    Product Registration SAMSUNG

    My Captivate was born on 07/07/2010! A brand new baby boy! So if you haven't registered yet, maybe you may. When you input your serial number, the DOB will pop-up on the screen directly below the serial number field.

    So lets publish our Captivate's DOB, all, chime in please! :rolleyes:

    7-4-10...a baby girl!

    I doubt it...

    When you first enter the IMEI during registration, right below the box it has in parentheses "Manufactured: <date here>"....Idk how to find it after you've completed registration...

    HMMM finally got it. I had to back all the way out. Enter the EMEI number after choosing cat and then sub cat and the rest of the phone info populates for you.

    7/15/2010...very new. no problems!
