1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I have had my thunderbolt for a little over a month now, even after the updates I still have data connection problems. I am on the internet and suddenly lose all data. I have the latest update, changed the sim card, and done a factory reset, still the same issue. I have talked to tech support and the last time I was talking to them the phone reboot mid conversation. They said with all the problems I am still having it sounds like a bad phone. They want to send me a refurbished tb. Just want some opinions, do you think it is just a bad phone or something else. Is a refurbished tb going to be any better.

    I've been through like 3 CLN (certified like new) D2's when I was back on my d2. And honestly at first. I was like na I don't want someone else's returns you know? But the final one they sent me ended up lasting me 5-6 months (until I upgraded) and it was still going strong. It beat out my brand new one by a hundred times. So CLNs seem bad at first, but hey if you feel like you got a defective device, then don't be afraid to get one sent out to you

    Get a new one. I have the same issue with mine. Hot a cln. Phone and it worked great for a couple days then stopped. New one arrives today. If you have tried everything, there is no harm in getting a new phone. Eventually they will offer you a different phone. I got offered a charge, which I will probably jump on if this one has the same issues. :(
