    Am I the only crazy who keeps LTE off even though I live in a 4g area?

    So I just bought the Thunderbolt just in time to lock in the Unlimited Data. It's my second ever smartphone and 1st on Verizon (consider me a n00b).

    I did receive the OTA update that was pushed out over this past weekend. I also do NOT experience any constant rebooting issues (knock on wood).

    The only true thing that annoys me is how the phone's service will "freeze" when it's switching between 3g and 4g (and vice versa). With that said, am I the only crazy one who intentionally keeps 4g off?

    4g is super fast and awesome when it works properly... but it's still too spotty in it's stage right now.

    That makes two of us. I always keep it off unless I'm literally sitting on my couch in my living room. That's the only place I can have 4g on and not lose service or get reboots. Other than that its always on 3g. I figure, I'm goinng to have the phone for 2 years or so, I can wait until 4g is really up and running in my area enough for me to keep it on all the time.

    I leave everything on.. 4G, GPS, Mobile Data, Auto-brightness, etc.

    I just got tired of toggling stuff on and off. I just make sure to have the phone charging whenever I can.

    No it's a serious drain on the battery, whether we are using it or not
