1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Got a bad feeling HTC and Verizon are going to try sweep this phone under the rug and start fresh with a new "flagship" phone.

    For such terrible problems that was caused by their update....they have been extremely slow to fix things much less even admit there is a problem.

    I believe Verizon has been open about admitting there's a reboot problem that was caused by the MR1 update. I'm sure they're just as eager as we are about getting the latest update from HTC since they're trying to make a profit.

    You mean the phone that still is "missing" all that internal memory we heard about and still hasn't got a MyVerizon app to use in the Android Market?

    I think that the executives mostly care about being able to finally exploit their iPhone deal with Apple and believe that it will kill AT&T off.

    A fact is that HTC abandons its phones the minute they are released. I upgrade my phone quite often so it doesnt bother me that much, but if one depends on contract renewal for new phone - HTC is not the best choise...

    Since the problems appear to be software based, it wouldn't make since to abandon a perfectly good phone.

    To my knowledge, the Thunderbolt is the only 4G/LTE phone to receive a update since it's release date and I'm sure that VZW is taking a hard look at what caused this phone to have the reboot issues, so that they don't have a repeat of this with other 4G/LTE phones.

    On that note look at the DX, since it's gotten its Gingerbread update, people including my wife has been experiencing reboots on a daily basis. For my wife it hasn't been more than 1 per day, not to mention the battery life has gotten worse.

    I'm not trying to rag on any manufacturer, but rather prove a point in that HTC, Verizon and Moto all make mistakes. It's just with the Thunderbolt being the first 4G/LTE phone, it had high expectations.
