I will as soon as I can get a ride. The only AT&T store I really have access to is inside the mall.

They said it took over a minute and dropped in and out constantly. IDK, maybe the bug didn't affect yours for some reason?

I'll wait for Samsung's fix before making any decisions.

I've got the iPhone 4 and it picks GPS up instantaneously when you call upon it, if you can get hold of one on your contract, i'd highly recommend it, it's my fave piece of tech, probably ever

Awesome. One thing that put me off was that it was still running Android 1.6.. is it running Froyo yet?

Have you got the 16GB or 32GB model?

edit: I see it's the 32GB model. Mutually! Have you Jailbroken it?

The streak is still on 1.6, but 2.1 is scheduled for release next month, and 2.2 sometime late this year.

That and the fact that it hates being held in portrait mode are my two main objections, but that screen makes it worth it.

If only AT&T had a version of the EVO...

EDIT: WTF? http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-pho...ComingSoon.jsp They have screenshots of phones running HTC sense, and have HTC specifically named in the title, but they don't offer any of their phones.

Nope. Coworker showed the phone to me and it's absolutely atrocious.

Dude, stop bitching. Just get your damn phone and stop whining. AT&T has an excellent selection. If you don't believe that, head on over to T-Mobile or some other wireless provider.

What's wrong with it? I played with one a while back and found it to be a great phone. It's pretty much the flagship android phone right now.

AT&T most certainly does not have an excellent selection of android phones. Their options currently are : Motorola Backflip (android 1.5!), Samsung Captivate, and Dell aero (android 1.6).

And relax, I'm getting my phone as soon as the preorder goes up.

EDIT: They also have the HTC aria, but it wasn't showing up in my search for some reason. Okay, now that makes sense.
