I'm not so sure about that, not for a family plan. At least, not for all lines of the family plan, maybe the main line. Guess it doesn't hurt to try though

Hmmm, mine was an early batch, no problems at all

Do all of the Samsung Captivates (AT&T version) come with the plastic backing, or the metal backing? I've seen both on the Galaxy S.

I don't know about all of them but mine has the metal backing cover for the battery/etc.

The top and bottom raised parts on the back are always plastic on the captivates. The battery cover (which is lower, and has a Carbon Fiber look) is always metal. As far as I know, the Captivate is the only Galaxy S with metal incorporated like that.

Do you know if there's any way to get the Captivate for less? Both Amazon and Wirefly sell the Captivate for $169.99 as an upgrade on a family plan and LetsTalk has it for $149.99 - $25 coupon code which brings it to $124.99, but I'm not eligible for it, so that won't work. The cheapest I'm finding it for is $169.99.

That sounds about right for captivate upgrade on a family plan.

Man, they are down to $170 now?

When I upgraded to the Captivate on the family plan a couple weeks ago it was still $200. And then you have your fees...

It's still $200 at AT&T, but it's $170 on Wirefly.

I got it at costco. No fees, and you get a free car charger+wired headset. Back then, Wirefly was still $200.

If I get the Captivate I'll have to buy it as an upgrade on my Mom's line, then put my SIM card in it, but I don't know if that'd work.

If I do that, I'll be paying the $15/month data plan on her line, I won't be able to use it at all, but I'll have to pay for it for the next 24 months. Can I cancel it on her line because it won't be used with a smartphone?
