    Question What's better, a Captivate or a Vibrant?

    So I have a brand new Vibrant, unlocked. I'm using it for AT&T (which I won't be leaving because I like them, get good service, have a strong dislike for the T-Mo brand identity, oh and also I'm under contract )

    Now I prefer the look of the Captivate, and as previously stated I hate seeing the T-Mobile brand (logotype, font, colors, I hate it all!). I'd like to trade it for the AT&T model. What are the biggest non-cosmetic differences between these phones?

    I know that the Vibrant has the advantage of supporting both T-Mo and AT&T 3G frequencies whereas the AT&T one does not, and the AT&T one has sideloading of apps locked down out of the box--other than that (and the different varieties of crapware loaded onto the device), are there any differences between the AT&T Captivate and the T-Mobile Vibrant?

    Besides the Captivate being the worst phone for a developer, nothing.. the only difference is that you can use third party apps on Vibrant, I have no idea how you would like the Captivate over the Vibrant...

    I'm big on design, and the Vibrant looks like a bigger, uglier version of the iPhone 3G.

    They are essentially the same phone with a slightly different look. Perhaps the iphone4 or the new BB Torch!

    Default visual voice mail

    Does the visual voicemail work with the Vibrant on ATT? I know about Google voice but the volume was so low I could not hear my voice messages.

    I don't know. I think the app it comes with is hardwired for T-Mobile. Is there an ATT-compatible visual voicemail client I can download from the Market?
