    Normally I would of thought nothing of this rubber circle below the kickstand, but for some reason there is a hole in all the cases for it, I don't want to press it--but what is it?

    Can't confirm anything but it may have something to do with the antenna.

    Saw it on a commercial. Go outside and push the button. Watch your neighbor's garage door open. Pretty cool.

    It's the 4G on/off button.

    I was thinking it was part of the dual microphones and the noise cancellation. Just a guess but that was my thinking when I saw it. Reason being its exposed.

    I'm hoping someone chimes in and says it the anti battery draining button. Press it and Voila! You get normal battery life from the Thunderbolt.:icon_ banana:

    If you have a button then your Thunderbolt is a male.

    Its probably a rubber cap covering a screw that helps disassemble the phone or remove the screen

    Close but it goes like this: if Thunder Bolt has a button it means it was born. Adam Bolt had no button. He was created.
