Why cognition? Has that rom been updated in a month? I'd try something a little newer if I were you.
Yeah, 3.02 is like 3 days old.

A guy with a refurbished captivate just hit me back, apparently its in mint condition-like new and also operates like a brand new phone. It comes with a box and original contents along with the phone, for $250.

Should I worry about it being a refurbish? If/when I meet this guy, whats a short list of things to check for to see if its all good

I'd say just check the physical condition, and make sure it works. The first thing I'd do is a complete system reset, and then start reading up on rooting and custom ROMs, if you're unfamiliar with Android as I was when switching from an iPhone. XDA Developers has an amazing Captivate forum that can teach you everything you need to know.

Ah, I thought he had said it was a dead rom in favor of perception a long time ago. Didn't realize he brought it back.

Just got the refurbished captivate for 240, first impressions are nice! He also had a new Xperia x10 for 300, but I passed.

What case are you guys using on yours?
I'm currently looking at these:

(but I don't wanna be that cheap on a case... lol)

(the Defender version costs too much.. ugh)

Is this right? It says Internal Phone Storage 1.73gb free, internal SD card total space 13.03gb

the phone has about 2gb for installing apps, 16gb internal storage which is really like 14gb, and 132 mb or so that is used for mms, contacts, and such.

What modems are you guys using?

I'm not really seeing if there's certain modem selections you have to use... I assume not? If I'm AT&T/USA, do I use the at&t 2.2 modems?

Anyways, so far... I went through 2 roms (Darky 8.1 and Serendipity), didn't really like seren as far as theme/interface goes. Currently pushing Perception and then maybe Paragon.
