Yah DOC did you get a phone yet? I've played the a few Android phones, and compared to an iPhone 4 they off a bit more, but if you jailbreak, the iPhone 4 is the clear winner. There are some nice apps like LockInfo in the Cydia store that add missing things like a lock screen calendar, todo list and weather. Plus as mentioned the iphone games are some of the best out there. Rage HD is a blast and honestly looks like the Rage screenshots for the full game (I know they use tricks as it's basically an on rails shooter, but it's so much fun)

Cool, I love my captivate.

I highly suggest this case and this screen protector.

Also XDA is a great place for info on your Captivate.

Congratulations on your new phone Doc

Hopefully you don't need to depend on the GPS too much

Is it just me or is GPS getting worse in phones? My imate Ultimate, iphone 3G and Nokia E71 had perfect GPS. iPhone 4 is out 100m most of the time. ::

No idea how other phones are Crainger all I have experience with is my wife's excellent Garminfone and the Samsung Galaxy phone with it's crappier than Oprah's ass after a Mexican feast GPS. Well it really isn't that bad but still not very good.

I come for the tech advice. I stay for the Oprah jokes.

That and MikeC seems to have gone off the deep end.
