    Well I would like to say thanks for all the comments.

    It seems the pro's far out weigh the cons. I think my wait for the Bionic/Targa/Whatever is going to stop and I'll be ordering a TB probably within a few days.

    I've been holding out, and holding out and it's just getting out of hand at this point. I think the fact I have access to all the incredibly smart people on these forums, in a way, made my decision harder, lol.

    I'm going to pull the trigger, but I'm going to wait until a few days before my billing cycle ends on 6/20 so I can just charge it to my account and get it so it shows up on my next bill.

    Now just to decide if I need to upgrade to a family plan now or wait to hear details on tiered data plans.....

    Thanks everybody!

    The TB is a great device. My complaints are all about little minor things (with the battery life being the biggest). Once you learn how to turn off 4G until you need it, that issue is resolved.

    Another annoyance, is that they have the kickstand pull out on bottom, which is the same side that you have to plug in the charger or USB, meaning when you're watching and charging at the same time your screen is askew.

    They should've either put charger port on bottom of device or made kickstand open from the other side.

    I just had an idea. If I could take apart my tbolt and see if I can stiffen spring on kickstand and machine it to expose speaker. This way you can use the kickstand as is..just lean it on the other side. It would be strong enough to support the phone and charger would be on top.

    Yup, mine rebooted it on its own with the stock rom.

    After installing DASBamf, no more random reboots, ever.

    Mine: SG4; Hers: SG3
    My wife picked up the TB in March and I think she has been mostly happy with the device. She upgraded from the Eris, which had issues from the beginning, so the TB did not have much to live up to. The only real issue with the TB is the battery life, but this has only come up recently. For the first couple months she would get through the day (7AM-9PM) with no issues, but now she can barely make it to 5PM without having to charge it up. I don't think she has made any significant usage changes, so it is a bit of a mystery as to why the sudden issue. I've been toying with it on occasion to try and improve the battery life, and while my changes seem to fix things for a couple days, eventually we are back to the poor battery life. My next fix will be showing her how to switch between 4G and 3G and hopefully that yields huge improvements.

    All of that said, compared to my rooted OG Droid, the TB is an amazing device. 4G feels quicker than our home cable internet, and the phone never seems to lag when switching between screens or apps.

    Samsung Fascinate
    I really don't think there is a phone out that can beat it. My fascinate rooted is hard to beat though...BUT I haven't rooted my TB yet (the TB rooted would be way faster than my Fascinate). I thought about getting an iPhone but the Verizon guy had one and said he hated it and said to stay away from it. Right now I think its the best, but they will have new phones coming out every couple months of course that will eventually blow it away
