    So, should i steer clear?

    Ok guys, i have the original Droid (not sure what it's called, apparently it's a relic). My battery died over the weekend, so i had to buy a new battery. Took me 4 stores to find one, the only one the Verizon store had was the extended life. Not bad.. Anyway, while the first store didn't have any, they tried to get me to upgrade to a new phone. Sure, my battery is dead, so it makes sense to spend $250 for a new phone. Um, no.. just need a battery. But, i did look at the HTC Thunderbolt, and was smitten with it. There are throwing the 4G switch for us hillbillies here in Knoxville next week. I keep reading bad reviews on the battery life for the Thunderbolt. Is anyone happy with it? My Driod can hold a battery for nearly the whole day, with some email checking, using the internet 3-4x a day, 3-5 phone calls. Pretty decent.
    So, would i would be miserable with the HTC or would the speed and newness overtake the bad battery..?
    Thanks

    I really don't have battery issues. I unplug it at 5:00 AM and put it back on charge around 9:00 PM... And battery isn't dead then, I'm just done with it by then. Others like me have no issues, but some on here do. Overall I really like my TBolt.

    Yeah, i would for once like to be on the cutting edge of technology.. not the backside like i usually am! Lol.. also, i understand that sometimes results in being a guinea pig of sorts.. there will always be small bugs to work out of anything new..

    Did you root your Droid? You can do the same for TB; dev support for the device is excellent.

    It really is. Verizon is non existent. If u get a Droid plan on rooting and relying on the dev community for support.

    When I need help with something o just go online and I usually get an answer in minutes

    I have had my Droid for a year and a half, i come on here very rarely. Not really clear on rooting or what it does for the phone. I am some what tech savy.. i was able to reset my Droid sometime back when it freaked out.

    I cane from an original Droid also and now wither the newest update the phone runs pretty decent....except for the very poor battery life.

    I use my phone very little during the day...a few text and check fb occasionally and I have to charge it during Lunch and still barely make it through a day. While on 3g only.

    But back to the phone hardware....its actually fairly outdated....it was outdated when it came out for the most part. I would wait a for a month or so and see what else there is.

    Almost half way drained in four hours is terrible.
