AT&T Samsung Captivate Gets Gingerbread

TestFreaks Data

Wow, this really surprised me, I didn’t even hear about this coming. I guess I honestly gave up, I recall reading that it wasn’t getting anymore updates so I just stopped paying attention. The update page says it will erase everything on your phone but I did the update a little bit ago and everything was still there. So who knows if it’s the same for everyone.
