You also get the AT&T Mobile Hotspot service built right into the smartphone--enabling you to connect additional Wi-Fi-enabled devices to the phone's mobile broadband signal (requires appropriate data plan). This GPS-enabled phone can also access the AT&T Navigator service for turn-by-turn directions.

Dual-Core Processor Moves Data Like a Two-Lane Highway
You'll have a full 1.0 GHz, dual-core processor moving your data and information. Single core processors can only move data so fast, but when a second core is added, it makes all the difference. You’ll have a smoother and better movie and video playback. You can load images lightning fast, and forget about buffering during games. Once you experience dual core speed, there's no going back to single core processing.
The Samsung Captivate Glide weighs 5.2 ounces and measures 4.9 x 2.5 x 0.5 inches. Its 1650 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 8 hours of talk time, and up to 400 hours (16.5 days) of standby time. It runs on AT&T's dual-band 4G HSPA+ network (850/1900 MHz; HSPA+/HSDPA/UMTS) plus international 2100 MHz 3G networks. It's also a quad-band GSM phone (850/900/1800/1900 MHz GPRS/EDGE).
What's in the Box

4-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen display (view larger).
This phone runs on AT&T's dual-band 850/1900 MHz 4G network (UMTS/HSDPA/HSPA+), and with HSPA+ you'll experience mobile data speeds up to 4x faster than ordinary mobile broadband--up to approximately 6 Mbps (download). AT&T has deployed HSPA+ to virtually 100 percent of its mobile broadband network, which enables 4G speeds when combined with enhanced backhaul (via Ethernet or fiber).
Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.
In areas where either AT&T's 3G or 4G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways.
Note: AT&T's 4G mobile broadband coverage is not available in all areas. 4G speeds delivered by HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul; availability increasing with ongoing backhaul deployment.

Android Gingerbread Operating System
The Samsung Captivate Glide runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread) which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.
Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The Captivate Glide also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

If anyone can see from my photos, this phone is unlocked and works on a different cell phone carrier not AT&T.
I've worked in telecommunications for 14 years, so perhaps I can clarify some basics about phone network compatibility for some buyers, without going into too much detail.
GSM is used around the world, but not necessarily compatible with every cell phone carrier in every country.
The name "GSM" may be the same, but what lies underneath is something called a "Carrier Frequency".
In the United States, a U.S. carrier such as AT&T can operate on a GSM network, but with a different frequency.
For example. If AT&T operates on GSM, but with a frequency of 850Mhz, it may strictly operate only on 2G, where a carrier perhaps in Canada could operate on a GSM frequency of 850Mhz, but strictly operate on 3G.
If the phone does not operate on those frequencies making it backwards compatible, it can not automatically evolve and communicate with a technology it was never designed for.
Knowing whether the phone you are purchasing can operate on 2G/3G 850/900/1800/1900 GSM/UMTS,HSPA,HSDPA for example, is very important. Phone must be compatible with technologies.
For example, I've always owned Sony Xperia phones, and the reason is, those phones are truly backwards compatible with all GSM networks around the world. No slide out QWERTY, but it works.
Sometimes carries place inhibitors on phones branded with their company logo, and although unlocked, special programming or software will prohibit that phone from working on other carriers, even thought the phone is unlocked and GSM ready.
So best beware and due proper research before committing to any cell phone related purchase.
But as for me, my Samsung Captivate Glide I927 phone is old school, unlocked and I'm loving it. QWERTY to the rescue :)
Android runs nicely on it, not slow or glitchy, and most apps seem to work well. The camera has a flash and is surprisingly good (8mp) considering how old the phone is.
However, reception was a serious issue for me with this phone. Frequently the phone would seem to just stop receiving info while in my pocket, and only when I moved around or went outside would a flurry of texts suddenly arrive; frequently when this happened, I would receive as many as twenty duplicate copies of the same text. I do not have this issue with my Samsung Galaxy S3 using the exact same Sim Card and provider in the same apartment, so I must conclude the the Captivate Glide's antenna was at fault. I also feel that the issue got significantly worse after the upgrade to the ICS operating system, and once you upgrade, there's no easy way to get back to Gingerbread.
A second, smaller issue: occasionally the phone would turn off suddenly, and the battery would have to be removed and replaced to turn back on. I finally bought a new battery, and that -mostly- cleared up this issue.
Finally, the back cover is too thin and brittle. A year of being removed to access the battery and SIM card had mine slowly cracking into pieces.
After about a year of use, the phone began to totally drop reception for long periods of time even while outside, so I finally had to replace it.
If you order this phone, please, check the battery first for the date on it and save yourself some trouble, as some sellers put a cheaper stock battery in. I ordered a new battery because of this, so hopefully this solves the problem.
The external keyboard is a great feature, but quite frankly, is something that I never use, which I thought I would but the touch screen keyboard is more convenient to me.
Simple to use
Does everything you would expect a smartphone to do(granted, it is an older phone, but I haven't encountered anything that I wish I had that hardware does not support, it can do anything)
Great starter smartphone, especially for the cheaper price
Watch the battery problem and just buy a brand new one and switch between the two
Call quality can be bad at times, but this is more due to bad reception, in most cases.
Bulkier, but that is because of the external keyboard more than anything.
Would I recommend to anyone: Absolutely
