Would it be possible that the GPS fix for the Captivate is not forthcoming due to the simple fact that this is a hardware problem and not a software problem?
This is the flagship Galaxy phone with AT&T. Samsung wouldn't want their flagship be hampered with this lingering issue.
The phone has been out for 6 months now, I would guess to speculate that software issues can be fixed in a matter of days, weeks, maybe even months.
But they haven't been fixed.
Can we conclude that we are dealing with a hardware problem?
In support of this suggestion you can look at the the Captivate product page http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/cell-phone-details/?device=Samsung+Captivate+%28TM%29...
Where is AT&T bragging about GPS? Does you see the word GPS mentioned here?
