Minor enhancements expected out of the upcoming update for the Samsung Captivate

Minor enhancements expected out of the upcoming update for the Samsung Captivate
Some Samsung Captivate owners might've experienced a false alarm when they were notified on their handsets that an update is now available for the Android powered handset. No, it's definitely not what everyone is thinking about, instead it's simply just an update that brings forth some minor enhancements to the smartphone.

The paltry 12MB sized update takes the phone from version I897UCJF6 to I897UCJH7 and features media scanning time improvements, improved calling experience, Exchange 2003 support, enables QuickOffice for Android users to edit Office documents, and some other messaging enhancements.

AT&T is apparently rolling it out in batches of 15,000 through Friday, but it appears that you'll be in for a surprise if you attempt to manually check for the update. If you happen to be impatient and attempt to do so, it'll reply back to your request saying that it's not yet ready and you'll be forced to wait 24 hours before trying for another request. So maybe you might want to just wait until that notification hits your phone?

More then likely not. It is not supposed to be in the update.

This is really old news as samfirmware.com has listed this ROM for quite some time now - works great with the i900 modem and COGNITION ROM that includes the voodoo lagfix.
