Would you advise new people to wait a month

I'm just saying it because I believe AT&T is going to steeply discount a lot of their phones around Black Friday in order to get people on new 2 year contracts before any Verizon Iphone comes out. And then there's the whole thing with the official Froyo version coming out in November (we hope).

Now whatever you may think about Apple, I think it's good news for everyone because there is going to be some pricing pressures on AT&T.

What does everyone think or am I just talking out of my ass?

The phone's actually alright. The new phones that came out from like, September are doing really well and there's no reason to wait a month to get the Captivate. If you really want to wait until Froyo comes out, which is probably not a month away, it might be a bit too long. I mean, Froyo was supposed to come out, almost for sure, at the end of September. Most of us were waiting all of summer for Froyo and the GPS fix, which never showed up in September. Then, we heard mid-October, which we passed, too. I mean, yeah, there's rumors and the real thing, but Samsung themselves posted in like August on their Twitter page that it was probably going to come out in the end of September. After one or two times, you just tend to not listen/believe it anymore and just go ahead on your own.

If you're really concerned about GPS issues, I'm sure the problem is fixed with the new phones, for one, and if you're concerned about Froyo, you can get it right away via ROM's which is perfectly acceptable.
Got my phone last week and the GPS is still jacked. It says that I'm 50-100 meters away from where I actually am. Build date of my phone was 9/27/10. Other than the GPS I love it!
