    Question Thinking about getting a thunderbolt..

    One of my buddies from work is selling his old Thunderbolt and I was thinking about taking it off his hands. I was wondering how much battery life you guys got out of your phones? I know after its initial release the life was awful, but has any recent update made it last any longer? Thanks!

    The Thunderbolt is a great phone the battery life is still sub par. so carry a charger or invest in a extended battery I had the extended and the size was fine and lasted a long time other than the battery its the best phone I've ever owned..

    my wife has a TB and keeps it on the charger all day long at work. After work and by the time she goes to bed, it needs to be charged.

    tbolt has horrible battery life buy the extended battery and you could go all day. i think sedio (sp) offers a case and extended battery option for 50 ish dollars .. otherwise its a great phone scheduled to receive ICS in the future .

    Get a Rezound battery if you decide to get it. Much better battery then stock.

    Nevermind just did a little research. Looks like a good deal, and I can get one off amazon for $10. He doesn't have a price in mind so how much should I offer him? I dont wanna lowball and look like an ass.

    I'd look around to see what a used TBolt is going for. See if it includes an SD card too. Check for damages etc.
