Just do it.
This is a discussion on Thinking of leaving Backflip for Captivate. within the Samsung Captivate forums, part of the Samsung Android Phones category; Just do it....
In order to copy your music to your Captivate with USB connection First go to applications, settings, applications, USB settings and mass storage. Pull down the notification bar and select USB Connected, Mount.
Oh good! I have had this line in question for about 4 months as well, but I have been an AT&T customer for a few years. I will let you know how it turns out, hopefully I don't have to pay more than you did, $300 sounds great.
I called samsung yesterday and they claim it is all about changing settings to allow mass storage devices, I tried that last night and cant seem find her directions to the location on windows 7 I think she was giving directions for xp. Either way she is speaking to management about there being no written instructions to guide customers with perfect trouble free setup on the phone.
I just got back from the AT&T store, I got my captivate for $294 after tax! WOOO...I got to keep my unlimited data as well...I have not put it down since I got it. What a difference from the Backflip, it was a good phone for a first generation though.
I have a Backflip right now and I was thinking of upgrade but two things are holding me back. First, no physical keyboard and that is a must for me. Second and lastly the Captivate is huge. Yes the Captivate is thinner then the Backflip the total length and width is much bigger then the backflip. If you need a bigger screen because of poor eye thing this would be a good phone. I do have to say the Captivate is much faster then the Backflip. Everything runs much smoother. It just hard to compare with the Captivate is on Android 2.1 and the Backflip is using 1.5. When the backflip upgrades to 2.1 I would be interested to compare the differences in performance.
The Captivate has much better specs than the Backflip. I doubt we'll be seeing anywhere near the same performance even after the Backflip has been upgraded to 2.1.
