    Android Central is reporting, based on an internal memo leak, that the Thunderbolt should receive a fix for the reboot issues in the second half of June. Until then, most users will just have to wait it out (unless you've rooted and gone with a custom ROM/radio).

    One has to wonder how this will affect the Gingerbread update that we were also supposed to receive by the end of June. Unless it's packaged altogether, which does not appear likely based on the memo, I would guess a delay is unfortunately imminent.

    Thunderom has been flawless so far. Thank god for custom roms or, in the words of 900 Ft Jesus, "this piece of junk's going back to the factory" haha

    I'm in the same boat. Thunderrom has been treating me very well. It was the first rom I flashed and was looking for a daily driver that I can really get set up how I like. Thunderrom has been great for that so far.

    This is complete and utter . You shouldn't have to root your phone for it to work properly, and it sure as shouldn't take Verizon and HTC 2 freaking months to fix a problem they introduced themselves by pushing out a faulty update that had a known problem in the first place!

    To drag their feet for 2 freaking months because of this is utterly unacceptable. Factory Resets and Rooting should NEVER be the fix to a problem on stock, especially one caused by the provider and manufacturer. And no, the hell if I'm going to go the route of Certified Like New devices. Been down that road before, and after receiving 3 worse phones than my original within the span of 2 weeks, I will never do it again. The whole thing is a scam.

    I could not be more pissed right now. This is awful customer service, and we're all stuck with broken devices until Verizon eventually decides to put out the update. Complete crap. I can't even go to them about exchanging for another phone unless I want to pay full retail. Awful

    Not all of us are stuck with broken devices... mine has been working fine without random reboots on custom roms
    this is something that should of been suspected as an early adopter... why wouldnt you want to root your phone? its simple with tons of guides... very easy to flash if you follow directions and gives your phone infinitely more options to customize... not only customize but make the device more stable and battery efficient

    theres obviously a solution to this reboot problem and the solution has been out for as long as the problem to the reboot appeared... why not use it?

    It voids your warranty, and not everyone is technologically savvy enough to feel comfortable going through with it. Trust me, I've encountered plenty of people who rooted D1s who probably should not have.

    THose who are having problems with random reboots see the thread: http://www.droidforums.net/forum/htc-thunderbolt/146247-stock-thunderbolt-rebooting-randomly-13.html

    From post 127 and down I have outlined a suggestion of the path to take. I am not running a stock device any way so the reboot issues are not bothering me, but if I was stock and I paid the high dollar price that came with vzw first lte device I would certainly follow the solution I laid out, infact I would go as far as reactivating my old device and mailing my phone back to vzw in its original box and asking for my money back....but that is just me.

    I just got my TB last Friday and have had maybe 4 total random reboots. So far I love this phone and as I knew a fix was coming, as well as GB, I'm glad I chose the TB. I do hate that others have had serious issues as this is a great piece of hardware.

    I haven't had any issues with my TBolt and it's stock with the first OTA. Now that I've said that I'm sure my phone will reboot itself within the hour.

    My wife has a bolt, she gets a couple reboots a day. Annoying, but not enough to make her return the phone - she can tough it out until the fix gets OTA'd.

    well considering the first OTA patch that caused all of the problems was supposed to, I sure hope so...

    Really? I mean this thing blows away the OG Droid and Droid X put together. I can deal with occasional reboots for now.

    Awesome.

    Now how about they work on solving this issue for the DroidX and other Android phones that have been plagued by this for the past year?

    i probably could too, but the people who depend on their phone to work because they expect their phone to work, it can probably get ridiculously annoying.

    Yea that's weird, mine is like that...at home it works flawlessly...at work it reboots occasionally...at the cabin it reboots constantly and for whatever reason my bluetooth keeps breaking up when I play music.

    Based on this I assume this is a 3G-4G issue? I know where I live we didn't have 4G available so I had my wifes phone to stop looking for 4g. Now that it is available she is experiencing random re-boots after I turned it back on. I'm wondering if it isn't having issues jumping from 3G to 4G all the time. This was also a problem for the Tbolt at release when a ton of people lost their 3G for days .. had to do a factory reset to get it back.

    All assumptions of course ..
