Yes, it's pretty easy to get back to default. There is a one click restore over on XDA (I used it after I flashed to an I9000 rom)

What do you do to re-get all your apps? That's the main reason I'm hesitant about flashing roms. Only thing I have is appbrain to back up. I have titanium, but I can't tell how to back everything up then restore?

Are the ROM's tested as stable and relatively low on bugs, or are they usually beta?

not sure yet, but I see a lot of people on xda using titanium to restore apps

tested by community so beta is a safe assumption. I'd check the threads of whatever rom to see what people are experiencing.

$30 bucks from Best Buy, amazing cans for the price, but I wonder if the Galaxy S can drive them without it sounding muddy or the highs and mids becoming less clear.
yes higher ohms means less volume in this case. I'm certain the porta pros would sound very good on this phone. btw, wanna join the club?

I'm probably going to buy the phone in a few days, so not yet. Looks awesome though, can't wait for Froyo 2.2 and TouchWiz 3.0 in September. I just wish AT&T would give us the $15/month Unlimited they used to offer, and I'm stuck on AT&T because of my Dad's family plan, but whatever. Can't wait to get this phone.

Also, does AT&T price match their authorized resellers? Wirefly has it for $100 as an upgrade, AT&T has it for $200 with an upgrade.

Add away. I doubt I will be changing to another phone anytime soon.

There are 4 roms to my knowledge

I9000 (European version) Eclair Rom. Not Beta, but gets around a few issues like no sideloading, and supposed to be a little faster (I only used it for a few minutes)

I9000 Froyo Rom. Very much beta, if not pre-beta, and it also has issues on the captivate as there is no captivate froyo kernal. I wouldn't use this unless you want to play for a little while and flash back.

The new rom for the captvate, that's still Eclair, but it's supposedly a few bug fixes, and will supposedly become official. It is still beta as well

Then there is the Deodexed Rom. Haven't looked much at this, no clue about it's status or pros/cons.

I have my data plan at $15 a month, and this is my first smart phone, so I'm not grandfathering anything in. It's 200 mb, but you don't use much. I'm at less than 100mb used, after most of a month, and the vast majority of that was when I didn't connect to wifi for the first day and was getting apps over 3G like crazy

Might want to check that out. Last I saw, Captivate was $100 for an individual upgrade, but $200 to upgrade a line in a family plan.

Edit: It's $170 to upgrade a family line. You have to tell them what yu want to upgrade, it defaults for an individual line. Family line pricing here.

It's $170 to add a line, I want to buy the phone for an upgrade on an existing line.

Dunno if this applies to anyone but if you're a new ATT customer (can cancel and rejoin if you're out of contract I think) you can get a Captivate for $50 on amazon.

Full updated listing of deals everywhere on the Captivate here, http://www3.slickdeals.net/forums/sh...9738&t=2133674

But beware some of the Captivate models appear to be quite faulty, apart from the GPS issues. From what I've read it seems like that was just the early batches as my phone works fantastically. Anyway more info here, http://androidforums.com/samsung-cap...ate-today.html
