Android on AT&T
I need some informed opinions.
I have a client who's on AT&T and wanted to go Android. She got a back flip and is going to swap it out for something else real quick. I recommended the Captivate.
Is there anything I should give her a heads up about? Is there a better Android device on AT&T right now? (I know, I know it's the Captivate forum)
Thanks!Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

We talked about the Aria. She likes the bigger screen of the Captivate, but she likes Sence also. I'm just not that familiar with what AT&T is offering these days.Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off...

Is there anything I should let her know about? I've been reading about the GPS issue. Is it really bad or just annoying?

I agree even so I am not using ATT there is only the captivate and the aria I would choose the captivate over the aria even so sense is better but she can root the phone and put sense like roms on to it or launchers she can find in the market. And if she could get the nexus one then that would be the Android on ATT to go with. There is also always an option to ditch ATT and go to Verizon and get the Droid x or Sprint and get the EVO or Epic. Lol just saying.

I have the Captivate in a strong ATT environment. The GPS issues is not a big deal for me. I am waiting for update and expect Froyo update to make improvements. I would recommend Captivate. The AMOLED is a plus. Just my 2cents. cheaha bill. enjoy your comm.
Thanks a ton to everyone. I'll let her know about the GPS and the Lag Fix so she goes in with open eyes. She's not a tech dummy, but she is lazy on research.
I hope you guys get your Froyo soon. I feel for you. The rumors, wait, confusion, and finally the update were a painful few months for us on the DInc forum.
If there is any other sage advice... I'm all ears!

I'm still having some minor issues with the GPS chip in my 2nd Captivate, but it is definitely a software concern, so the new update should fix it.
Otherwise, I jumped from an iPhone to the Cap, and I'll never look back! Signal is much stronger, the phone is incredibly powerful, and being a tech geek, I can mod it as I see fit.
The learning curve is a bit different on the Android than the iPhone, but if she's using a Backflip, she will be twice as happy with the Captivate. My wife has the Backflip, and is chomping at the bit to get the Captivate. She keeps stealing mine when I'm not at work. lol

If you are set on ATT then the Captivate is your best bet so far. I dont see anything in the pipeline for upcoming Droid phones. It's going to have it's little quirks, but so is any other phone.
I personally like the HTC phones, but my major gripe about the Aria is the size. No use having a smart phone if you have to deal with that small of a screen.
