yep, it's true...I couldn't take it anymore. I just returned it this afternoon...$35 lesson. The whole notion of having a charger attached to you all the time didn't work for me. i was even scared every time I went out for the night that the battery might not last. Everyone says: turn off background data, don't use live wallpaper, get rid of widgets, turn the brightness all the way down. WTH!??! Then why even have a smart phone? The phone is very beautiful and the 4G service is fast, and although I really wanted to keep it a long time, I just couldn't get it to work for me. Somebody said they are going to push out an update, but it will probably come out after the 14 day return period is up. I wonder who else is in the same boat as me and has returned the TB. Please post below.
