Look, I find it nearly impossible for HTC to be able to generate a fully functional ICS OTA...we all know how they are with OTAs that "improve functionality". ICS has already come to the bolt through a Th3ory ROM that is AOSP and is on Rootzwiki and XDA. It isn't fully operational (its in its alpha phase) but its getting there.

Why would anyone want ICS when Gingerbread and whatever came before it suck so bad on HTC? Give me a phone that will stay connected to the internet and you can use ms-dos for the OS and I'll be happy.
You should write and request that ICS does NOT come to the bolt. I am sure there is at least one other bolt owner that would agree.....but I wouldn't imagine there is more than 1 other that does not want their bolt faster and more capable.

Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.
1. You should read your posts before hitting the post button ;-) as it doesn't really make sense.
2. Do you even have a Thunderbolt? Or ever had one? You sound kind of like a moto or Sammy fanboy...
3. I would think M$ Dos would probably not work as well as any android build on a phone, making you sound like either a Micro$oft fanboy, or just an idiot :-)
I guess what I'm saying is, what's the point of a post like that? How does that add to the conversation in this thread? I really don't understand why even waste your time with such nonsense posts...
Just my opinion ;-)
If you had the same frustration with your HTC Thunderbolt as I do where it requires a "restart connection" every 5-10 minutes and watching a netflix is impossible, you would understand where I'm coming from. I can only assume you don't use mobile hotspot. In fact after typing this and hitting reply my connection cut off and I had to "restart connection" again in order to make this short post.
1. Are you stock unrooted, stock rooted, custom rommed, etc.
2. Do you pay for tethering?
3. What tethering app are you using that is causing this problem?
4. Is the issue only on your tethered device? Or do you loose data on the device too?
I ask these questions because you are the only person I've seen with this problem. I do tether my tablet from time to time with the built in cm7 wifi tethering, or with Wireless Tether on sense custom roms. Don't take this the wrong way, but sounds like user error...
I pay for mobile hotspot on the stock phone. I don't use the internet directly on my phone nearly as often but it has problems too. If you watch the phone you'll see the 4G suddenly drop off or else the bars underneath will cease to light up or flash. I've been in several states with 4G with the same problem so it is not my location.

If you're totally stock, go to vzw and complain, you're not getting what you pay them for! If they can't give you a Thunderbolt that works, they should be willing to swap phones to keep your business. I think you need to check your settings or battery saver apps you've installed. Make sure you've enabled "always on mobile data". Also, if you're using a task killer, ditch it! Juice defender would be another culprate.
