    Just a poll out of curiousity: how many of you plan on returning your Captivate for a different model phone if there's no GPS fix before your 30-day return window is up?

    I voted no, because rather than a GPS fix, I'd like just a promise of a consistent update cycle for this phone.

    I voted no as well, in hopes that this issue will soon be fixed. Furthermore, there are sadly no other alternatives as AT&T only offer a sub par phone selection.

    No, because it is so excellent in doing everything else and I don't absolutely need GPS...I'm sure the update is soon coming though

    yes, because Samsung shouldn't have released the Captivate when other versions of the Galaxy S had GPS issues that were still unresolved.

    I voted yes, although I will not be exchanging it for another phone. AT&T has no other phones I want. I will look into breaking my contract (I upgraded early) and going with another carrier, or I will go back to my Samsung Jack until this gets fixed or AT&T gets a new Android phone I want.

    I voted yes because I don't want to be laughed at by iPhone 4 users when I bashed them about buying a defective antenna.

    I will be returning it if the GPS issue isn't fixed. I've only managed to get google navigation to work a few times (when it locks it's great, but it usually never finds where i am at all).

    So far, this phone has never located where I am in any other setting than google maps or google navigation. So location-based widgets and other apps never lock, which makes maps, yelp, layar, foursquare, directions, etc lose a ton of functionality.

    I am somewhat leaning towards yes. This is not only because of the GPS issue. But Samsung is notorious for not supporting their phones. If they shrug off something like this, what can I expect from them in the next two years I have this phone?

    I voted yes, but I'm honestly on the fence. I have 3 weeks to decide. I sent back my iP4 because of the lack of response from apple with all the issues that phone had. There were other problems with it, not just the reception issue that got the spotlight.
    I'm sure that 2.2 will take care of the lag problems on the Captivate, and will hopefully fix some of the other little bugs. I think the GPS will get fixed by Samsung or somebody on XDA.

    I got so lost in West Virginia relying on this phone that a three hour trip took 7! Not only did my GPS never get a fix, but it also stopped letting me access emails that I downloaded from the exchange server that had hard copy directions on it. Had to reboot mid trip. Simply awful
