hehe yeah.. i hear you Karen.. she has already mentioned something of the sort :) .. but what will more than likely happen if i get the ip4.. is that we will end up waiting for one of the other phones to come up for upgradeable and then upgrade it to an ip4 for her :)

 

as for yours ashraf.. dont really have access to stop into England enroute back home.. in Iraq right now.. and wont be stoping there.. though, have friends there that if I wanted, i could have them snag one.. problem is, id have to pay out right for it.. and it was what.. about 500 pounds or something for it over there without contract??? for me.. since have upgrade, would be able to get it cheaper in the states.. but hence, the issue of not beaing able to get it on the proper freq to use wiht 3g in the states :(.. have a couple more months till I will get the phone, so will be checking them out then and see whats out.. but, i think the ip4 is possibly leading the way. :)

Ah. If you don't mind me asking, are you in the military?

Anyway, if you don't plan on getting the phone for a few months, it is pointless to look right now. New phones are being released so quickly any excellent phone now will be topped by a new phone; and if you are seriously considering another iPhone, I am sure Apple will releasing iPhone 5 or iPhone 4G or whatever in the summer so depending on how long you can wait you may want to go for that.

Zug,

Phone is great so far, although I am having trouble justifying the extra $$$ I spent on it after selling my SGS phone considering the changes there are pros and cons to this phone. I will probably feel better about the money I spent on the Nexus S when it gets Honeycomb six months before all other phones get around to it. Laugh

I will try to give you more details on it later, I have only had it for a week now.

Isn't it basically a Galaxy S without the Samsung interface and update lag time?  With a special reciever you can only use in Portland, Or?

how is the Galaxy S in comparison??? i got back on R&R and how a brain fart.. I remembered the S ..and noticed that a lot were promoting the Galaxy S over here.. and ATT had it.. i talked to the guy and what not .. and supposedly the Galaxy S is "better" in a lot of ways over the iPhone4.. tho as agreed the Iphone prolly has the more stable software.. so .. I bought the Galaxy S which is the Captivate or something like that from ATT… so far I like it.. feels great.. light.. has bigger and better screen than the iphone.. has 16gb built in and can hold a 32gb sd card so can hold more than the iphone.. so far runs fast… i did a software update.. and didnt appear to be "that bad" as you make it out to be above..

 

anyway.. would be great to hear some input on it.. how it compares to the nexus S and did i just waste my money ;)

Like other SGS phones, Captivate has its fair share of problems. However, the Captivate is definetly not a waste of money. It is a great phone.

That said, right now the Nexus S is the best Android phone out on the market However, dual-cores are just around the corner and the AT&T version of Nexus S has not come out yet. So if you are on AT&T, the Captivate is the best Android phone they have right now.

I don't know if Android 2.2 has officially been released for the Captiviate or not, but I know you can grab custom ROMs that run 2.2 from XDA. See http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=703.

Personally speaking, I am not a fan of custom ROMs. Why? One word: Security. I use my phone for many things including managing my bank account. People that post custom ROMs are typically just random strangers; while I have no doubt most – if not all – of the custom ROMs available at XDA are "safe", there is no way to gaurentee some punk doesn't cook in something malicious. For that reason alone I stick with stock instead of going with custom ROMs. In fact my dislike of custom ROMs is one of the biggest reasons I went with the Nexus S: I don't have to get the latest Android updates via unofficial sources.

To me custom ROMs are akin to installing a custom version of Windows: A security hazard.

And this is why I'm glad I live in Portland.  If I get a Nexus S (I won't though) I can actually use its cool, unique feature. Wink

What cool unique feature are you talking about? NFC?
