I've been happy with my Charge except it has lines going down the screen when I turn it on or when the screen wakes up. This is the third unit I have gotten like this. I have been thinking about going with the Thunderbolt because of this. Does anyone's TB have screen glitches? My only concern is the GPS problem I read about. I use Google Maps a *LOT*. The Charge hasn't failed me yet and locks on instantly. I read there were updates to this, but then read a few threads where people still have issues, have to take out their battery, etc. As for battery life - unless I am surfing or need the internet, my wifi is off on my Charge, as well as 4G and GPS. I don't need widgets to update themselves, if I'm not looking at the phone, why do I need it to update Meaning, until I want something from the internet, my phone is just a phone to me. Would I pretty much get good battery life with the Tbolt? I would get an extended battery.
