Rooting is easy, very easy even by Android standards. Then download Titanium backup and remove the bloat. And if you want, download the sql editor and change a file to allow off market apps. (sideloading).
As far as filtered AT&T apps on the market, two ways of dealing with this, both simple. 1. put the phone in airplane mode, then turn wifi on. You can get at any app in the marketplace. This is what I do. 2. Download marketenabler, pick TMO USA, the market will think you're on TMO and not AT&T, both are good. I use 1.
How can I get these services to stop starting up in the background?
CNET Review is up
The good: The Samsung Captivate features a gorgeous Super AMOLED screen, a 1GHz processor, and 16GB of onboard memory plus an expansion slot. The Android 2.1 device also offers great call quality, full wireless options, and a HD video capture.
The bad: AT&T won't let you sideload apps. Camera lacks flash.
The bottom line: The Samsung Captivate is easily AT&T's best Android offering to date, delivering great performance, tons of features, and an easy-to-use interface.

Very much looking forward to this phone!!!
But I have been looking forward to this phone for about 2 months now.
Here's my question:
Anyone see any obvious limitations or negative features about this phone???
Personally I wish it had the keyboard like the Sprint version and I wish is had a damn flash for the camera. Seems pretty easy to have this basic feature on a phone.

To change the bottom 4 icons is easy
To change the bottom 4 icons on the main screen
Go to the applications list menu, hit the menu/options button, then edit- then you can change them
Its a bit difficult to get it to be as customized as you want, but it can be done- haha
Very difficult question about the phone and android.
Thanks in advance.

Sync With Laptop
I am having an issue when I go to hook up my phone via the USB cable it came with to my laptop. I am running windows 7 and when it tries to install the driver or hardware needed on my laptop it says that it has fail.. I have tried this about five times now with the same result in the end. I would like to be able to sync them up and use my internal phone memory as well.. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks
