All those flame wars and all bs steve gives to customers and there are still fanboys claiming it's good :/
Einstein was so right
Haha. Everything you said was so stupid, you really no nothing about technology and I suggest you either learn about it or start visiting some forums you will have knowledge on. Seriously, you are either very young or just really stupid. Motorola makes a good smart phone, Samsung does as well but you said motorola is the worst? Haha ok man, and Idc how much you hate Apple, but to say the iPhone is a bad product just because of that shows me that your a very biased person, incapable
Of making a reasonable decision.

Managed to sell the 3GS tonight for 265 (got it for 250), and now the waiting game continues!

Well, for what it's worth, I traded my 16GB 3GS for a Captivate. I'm a very happy dude.

OP, read up on rooting the phone and flashing a custom ROM at xda, it is way faster then the stock vanilla rom. The rfs system samsung uses is a joke, its so slow.

Hows the battery life for you guys (on the captivate)? i.e. Full day of random usage, or mostly web browsing and/or texting, etc.

I'll definitely look into it RotaryKnight.

Seems to be worse than the iPhone, but it's also dependent on the ROM used. I just flashed to Cognition 3.02, and it seems to be a lot better than the previous version I was using. I could maybe get 2 days of light/medium use on a charge.

I usually get through a day no problem, though the iPhone 4 is better (not sure about the 3GS) in that regard

Why cognition? Has that rom been updated in a month? I'd try something a little newer if I were you.

battery life seems to be dependent on the roms.
though just going from 2.1 to 2.2 saves battery, flashing a custom 2.2 rom saves more battery.
On my Vibrant I get 10hours of usage on the stock rom playing music 9 hours straight with web browsing during 30 min lunch, then it dies. With a custom 2.2 rom I get an extra 3 hours. Right now though I am running a 3000mAh battery and with same usage I have 40% battery life left.
