    It works fairly well, it just has a mind of it's own. It will shut down randomly. :(

  • Captivate on T-Mobile
    Verified Purchase

    This phone comes in AT&T packaging. Some of the Apps and contacts are AT&T specific. Also, you may find it difficult to get the drivers to work on Vista64 to connect the phone using USB. This is a known issue and you will find a lot of information on the web. Plugged in my T-Mobile sim card and I was good to go. LOVE this phone!
