So basically... I'm wondering what maybe some of the Captivate users are looking at getting.

I'm on my fourth Cappy. Now the speaker stopped working on it (Just the headphone jack works for sound now).

Pissed at this phone, honestly.

I'm going to see if I can talk AT&T into letting me get a different phone, on the basis of this being a lemon.

Any suggestions?

If I had to replace my phone right now the Inspire is the one I would get. It's really a nice phone and has a lot of developer support.

I bought an inspire off-contract to replace my captivate... it's pretty nice. I would recommend it.

My speaker stopped working twice and had a new one put in warranty. Third time it happened I just tapped on the speaker and it came back on and now I keep a lil peace of paper inside right below the speaker to keep a lil pressure on the connections. Been working great

I'm done with the Captivate, in other words. Too many issues with it.

Custom ROMs are the only reason I've hung on this long.

Would you not consider the Atrix or (shudder), Jailbroken iPhone 4? The Inspire's battery is so small.

My main thing- is I think I'll sorely miss the Super AMOLED. The next phone with AMOLED is looking to be the Infuse, and who knows when that comes out.

I've tried replacing my captivate but imo there is nothing out that compares yet.
I started with an inspire but took it back 3 times due to poor screen. Then tried an atrix but mine was junk. I had it for 2 weeks which for half of that time it was in it's box on the fridge while I went back to my trusty old captivate.
I think no matter what I end up buying eventually I will still keep my captivate as a backup just in case.
If I were you I would try to get another one, I've had not a single issue with mine other than the gps crap. Get another captivate and wait for something better to come out than the crap that att is pushing now. The inspire is an old design and the atrix was released too soon in my opinion.

Its so sad that ATT doesnt have much options in smart phone section. Still the best android phones are inspire, atrix and captivate....

I own a captivate and i am very happy with it...but when atrix was launched i thought wow dual core will be so nice...my room mate got it...and i am so happy i didnt just jump on it....the first thing is screen...nothing can replace SAMOLED....other thing was I saw Atrix hanging, where as my custom rommed captivate was running smoothly...Atrix has that locked bootloader issues..
