I would assume when it is released it would be downloaded through the Kies Mini they recently added not OTA. Only reason I can think of why they intrduced the mini.

PDAnet works good for me, but basic version cant get to secure sites. Not sure how you got Kies to work with tethering, doesn't seem to do it for me but can get enough from PDA which is probably the easiest and best way to tether right now. Now the question is how do I create an access point so others can use the captivate to access internet,

Yeah, got a bunch of 3rd party apps loaded. So no App out there that will copy to the external SD card that I can download now then after flash do a install from backup. Just think that is a little weird to have to do, but as you noted 3rd party apps in theory are not supported.

Thanks! I downloaded Astro File Manager but was thinking if they were going to release an official OS update, would they expect people to actually have to "backup" themselves and not build the backup feature direct in the Kies Mini. WHile I know this phone is more for advanced users lets say.. then Iphone I would still think they should have they built in when you flash u...

Thanks for the reply's, whats good is the replys is basically what I am feeling/expecting. It seems to be about preference. I see this phone having high reward (with flexibility) but with that you need to step up your game and really need to read alot of the boards on how to do.... with the Iphone, good rewards but the risks and understanding is much more dumbed down. IE ...

Just curious, when froyo comes out for the Captivate would I need to back up my apps, or will the Kies Mini take care of any backups needed in order not to lose anything when the new OS gets flashed. Just wasn't sure the best way. With Iphone obviuosly they make it easy enough with Itunes backing up the device. I have a backup app but not sure how this will all work with ...

OK, so my last days are coming up on my 30 day trial period with the captivate. Now the hard sell, need some convincing from the crowd on keeping this over selling out to the dark side and getting the Iphone. I like this phone but without the "official" Froyo concerned Samsung/ATT will drop us like a bad habit and move on to another phone leaving us with 2.1 and no update...

OK back to my original question.. I got the Kies Mini working so.. guess we are expecting official 2.2 soon. So, two questions will Kies work with 64bit Vista and this new version... where can I get it, anyone have a link please. Second question When I do go to the Samsung site it shows me both the drivers and Mini, when I unzip the driver and run it getting error stating...

Good point about using Kies, but I think if they want to reach a broader audience, those not as technical, they should include software to be more user friendly. I could be missing something but it just seems that way. I am tecnical enough to work through these type issues (if you call it an issue...) but alot of folks would be more intimiated and have the comfort level o...
