    Are you still happy with your Thunderbolt?

    Most of us bought our Thunderbolts when it was first released, last March I believe. I'm not eligible for an upgrade until November of this year, and I have been thinking about buying a Galaxy S III at full price when it comes out, seeing as how if I want to keep my unlimited data I need to pay full price anyways (especially if I can keep my $59.99 plan). Lately though I have been itching to get a new phone, I don't think I could wait until November.

    What about the rest of you? Are you content in waiting until this winter for your upgrade?

    I am in a lucky situation where at work, they provide Sprint phones for free. So instead of upgrading my TBolt, I upgraded my work phone to the new Evo 4g LTE for $150! This way, I get to keep my unlimited data and have a new phone. I'm just lucky

    Other than that, I am still pretty happy with my TBolt. Yeah, I wish it had a higher resolution so I can play the newer games, but they are optimized for dual-core anyways so it's all good. Aside from the newest games, the phone is still plenty fast for my needs and works like a champ. If I didn't have an upgrade available at work, I would go your route and get another phone or just keep mine until I couldn't take it anymore. But beware: I called Verizon about switching phones a few months ago and they said if I activate a different phone on my unlimited data line, I would lose my unlimited data and it would go to tiered :'( Make sure you talk to them or look into it before you pull the trigger.

    Every article and even on the Verizon site itself says that if you buy a phone at full price you can keep your old unlimited plan, but if you want a subsidized phone you need to switch to tiered data. Hopefully your rep was wrong!

    I was trying to activate an older d1 (very long story) and that's when they told me

    If you buy a phone at full price you keep your unlimited plan is what has been repeated by verizon many times. Have not heard anything different from what has already been posted from verizon.

    To answer the OP, I'm still happy with my Tbolt. I'm just ready for something new. ICS might keep my interest provided it gets here but I'm about ready to switch out. One X was originally in my cross hairs but I'm not seeing it coming to VZ so I'm interested in the SGS3. But I'm in no rush. The games that are coming out isn't holding my interest yet but production apps, I feel like I'm missing out on the 4.0 optimized experience.

    +1, the bolt is a great phone, but I'm going to pre- order the s3 since a rep offered to offered to move my upgrade since they sent me a bad warranty replacement for my bolt with a busted earpiece.
