Awesome commercial and awesome phone. :) Sure it has a few bugs, but most of them have been solved with rooting and removing the AT&T bloatware. :)

I agree, the commercial is awesome and the phone IMO is the best looking out of the 4 variants. I would take the phone as is. ATT bloatware and not being able to purchase apps outside of the Android Market is not an issue to me and probably 99% of most cell phone buyers. Thats really only an issue for such a small amount of users that is really a non-issue. This phone is awesome either way you look at it.

jcrow, you always say that - you never used the phone, right?? I have it and it is awesome - someday I will root it. But, lack of camera flash, front facing cam, and 3rd party apps lock out is a non-issue, for now. Great phone - especially the quality of the videos, photos, images, and games played on it - outstanding quality. UI is slightly slower, at times, than the ARIA, but, again, not an issue. I am actually not liking the SWYPE keyboard and find the ANDROID stock version just fine. Love the live wallpaper and the extras maps you can get - especially the DEATH STAR....

Launcher Pro UI Beta is so much simpler and faster on Samsung, than its samsung UI...

Yeah I really don't like Swype either. I find it much easier and faster to use the Android keyboard. I am loving this phone though. I find it to be very speedy, and I can't express how awesome this screen is! I just came from an iPhone 3G, so the extra .5" for the screen and much higher resolution are very welcome.

Holy crap I am pissed. Wife bought it because the iphone4 was out of stock. Come to find out Nursing Central will not work on the captivate because it is not from the Android Market!! So thats $160 dollars down the drain. Nothing I can do about it.. Called At&t and they were WORTHLESS! Passed the buck to Samsung. Oh yeah and crashed the operating system trying to root the piece of shit. Taking it back tomorrow ;)
