    Honestly I got one and I love it, but I kept my OG Droid to keep up with Pete's roms so I think either way you are set. I would go through withdrawal if I tried to stop flashing GPA's all at once! lol ;)

    I also got a Thunderbolt and love it. It's crazy fast compared to my Droid. The only thing I miss are Pete's ROMs, and I keep imagining just how incredible they would be on a phone this fast! I know Pete is waiting for a vanilla android device, but I keep hoping he will consider releasing a ROM for the Thunderbolt. Please, Pete. :)

    I disagree, locked bootloaders make everything worse!

    Someone will. I think there are 3 already, check the HTC Thunderbolt area about that.

    I wouldn't use a custom ROM but I'd sure root it.

    Bootloaders dont mean much when the hardware is outdated. And FYI, Ive owned the DX for nearly a year and locked bootloaders have NEVER kept me from doing anything a D1 could do.....

    D1 is great and all but TB is leaps and bounds better. HTC doesn't lock the bootloaders as Motorola has since after the D1. You can't expect there to be 30 roms to be available right now for TB considering how new the phone is. I imagine TB rom developement will exist for a long time. D1 does still have some life in it but the demand will simply die when new requirements demand more that the D1 cannot meet.

    Yessss, thunderbolt is much better than Droid. And don't hesitate for the Bionic or Revolution or the Charge if you can upgrade now. IMO the Bolt is better that all of them, dual core or not.

    My upgrade date is May 15....think Bionic will be out by then or what others will be out for Verizon that are awesome?

    I really have a hard time keeping up.

    It should be, given that it's a year and a half newer than the D1. Given that timeframe, it's not really THAT MUCH better to be honest (than a D1 running something like bugless, which is the context of this thread).

    I would totally donate for Pete to develop for the t-bolt. I think others here that have ran his roms would also agree? Some stock gb or some gb with sense would be outstanding!

    the wife used my upgrade to get the thunderbolt. ive played with it and tho its somewhat impressive, the lack of a physical keyboard is and probably always will be a deal breaker.

    according to some of the rumors ive been reading about, the droid3 should be out around late summer (which happens to fall right in place for my wifes upgrade). depending on the other phones available at that time, i will most probably end up with the d3. until then, these bb roms will keep me more than satisfied with the original droid.

    so my verdict? if you can hold out for a few more months, then do so. according to rumors, the d3 will be more than capable and will include the physical keyboard we d1 owners are so accustomed to.

    The only thing the thunderbolt really has that I wish the OG had is 512mb ram. I can oc my droid to be just as fast as a thunderbolt and I don't really care about 4g. What I want before I replace my OG is dual core, better battery life and front facing camera. I do really like the fm tuner the thunderbolt has though.
