    Ughhh all the speculation of gingerbread coming out is annoying and i want it now !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Does any one know what the enhancements would be to benefit the TB? Will the GB correct / improve phone performance / battery life? Obviously I will have to wait for the new release......Thank god I dont have any rebooting problems either as i did with my 1st TB......

    Supposedly it helps somewhat with battery life. I don't have any reboot problems either, but GB does bring some things I want. Along with better performance, I want it mainly so Netflix can/will release an app and hopefully get a working version of Skype that works on a stock phone.

    Froyo on my X had better battery life than GB. But I am getting great battery life on Apex GB now.

    I know this is a Tbolt section, I was just giving my opinion on GB.

    I just did the gingerbread OTA for my X. I must say I'm impressed with the battery life on GB DX. I came from darkslide which had amazing battery life. I'm hoping for similar results for my TB when GB comes out. I'm very close to flashing a GB Rom for the TB soon. When CM 7 hits actual release I will switch to that Rom.

    it helps battery life a great deal bc gb is so much more aggressive when it comes to kiling battery drainers.

    There are a ton of updates coming with it posted on all the tech forums just google gingerbread for thunderbolt and you will get a ton of articles about it.

    for example: google video chat, pay pass ability ect

    No rooting for me I rather have my warranty. What's the benefit of rooting a device?

    Remove bloatware..faster phone..better battery life.. better apps..more functionality ...wireless tether...better GPS lock..no reboots...lockscreen music control ...more control over the device you paid for.
    Warranty will give u a refurbished phone. If u brick your phone more than likely it won't boot. Most reps don't know how to tell if u have root or not. Root is not permanent ...u can restore to stock the warranty is garbage anyway

    I want gingerbread too. As long as it fixes my reboots, I'm good. Netflix wouldn't hurt. I'm giving Verizon until the 15th, then I'm rooting. I have several reboots per day. Had the phone since April 30th, and a few reboots prior to mr1 update. Hope you guys will help out a rooting newb.

    Even a developed gb will be better than ota gb. Gtalk video ...Skype video ..Netflix ...what more could the ota give u. I honestly don't see why some of u don't want to root. Maybe u just don't wanna take the plunge ...don't know what to do afterwards ..or just don't know what ur phone is capable of after rooting. Why wait for Verizon ..they ain't gonna give u what u want even after the ota

    And the extreme group that just likes to continually gripe about the injustice vzw put on them and how unacceptable reboots are.

    Also add no ads to the list of benefits
