    I guarantee you the hold up is battery life or lte. The thunderbolt doesn't have battery to spare and gingerbread needs a little more power.

    I beg to differ. My battery life on GB is even better than it was on Froyo :)

    If you are running gb on your tb, you have probably installed a custom rom, and that is probably the source of your better battery life. GB is slightly more hardware intense than froyo, this is just a fact.

    Well yeah, the OTA hasn't released yet so a custom ROM would be the only way to be on GB :)

    I gained apps... Skype that takes advantage of the front facing camera for one. The only apps I lost were by choice... All the bloat!

    You're correct that I don't get voicemail alerts but that doesnt matter taking into account all the benefits. I can always check voicemail whenever I want... :)

    There is no reason to stay on Froyo. For me at least.

    But to each his own.
