    My wife's Samsung Galaxy S Captivate (ATT) has somewhat recently stopped receiving emails. The only way to get emails is to connect via wifi.

    Also, when she gets a text, it says to download the text. The texts she is getting are NOT pictures or something that would need downloading.

    Any thoughts as to how we should proceed? The ATT store said they would need to wipe the phone and reinstall. She's running froyo now and she's never been rooted or anything. Also, what is the best way to backup before rooting? I used mybackup pro on my galaxy nexus, but i believe you need to be rooted for that.

    Before I have ATT reinstally, I thought maybe rooting would help? I could then flash something better than froyo? What would be suggested? I've rooted my verizon galaxy nexus and have flashed a rom, but would probably use superone click on the captivate to speed things along.

    I updated her phone using KIES to gingerbread. Did not help.

    Thanks for all your help!!

    PS - i accidentally posted this in an ATT G Nex forum. Not trying to cross post.

    I even rooted the phone and no luck. Any thoughts? Hate to give it over to ATT to fix.
