    Hi aLL, I am new to this forum. I have been on the fence for a long time trying to decide weather I should get a thunderbolt or charge. Well finally after a lot of reaserch, decided on the thunderbolt, especially after verizon sent me a special offer selling the thunderbolt for $199.99. ( limited time offer )
    Can't wait to buy it. Will be getting it next week.

    excellent decision, this phone is sweet, and i havent even rooted it yet. The charge is horrible, plasticky and cheap feeling... Its a shame, that couldve been a great phone

    Tip, if you dont have 4g yet, turn it off and your battery life will be pretty good. Dont rush in to the extended battery, it totally changes the feel of the phone

    I agree about the plastic feel on the charge, just feels cheap. Thunderbolt has that great feel, solid feel.

    First time writing on Droid forum. I got my thunderbolt yesterday and love it. Still trying to figure things out though.

    I've had mine for about a week now and coming from a OG Droid I wouldn't trade it for any other phone out there right now. I've only had one random reboot in the week that I've had it and after adjusting some settings I'm getting decent battery life out of it. It still eats battery power but I just keep a charger close just incase but have been able to make through the work day without any problems. Can't bring myself to root this one yet. If I start having problems then I might look at rooting it.

    Great choice, once gingerbread comes I feel like this phone will be like a dream on 4g.

    On paper the specs look pretty similar but IMHO HTC > LG.
