    Before you think about that you should learn all the ins and outs of your stock phone. Without being fully acquainted with what you have you won't appreciate a Rom.

    Rooting will allow you to eliminate the bloat and load custom roms.

    The stock Thunderbolt is amazing and will keep you busy for some time.

    I have a Droid and my vibration is very loud. I use Handcent and it allows me to set different patterns. I'm not sure if the TB does the same, sorry. Check the TB section of the Forum.

    You could also download an app "minevibrationsetting" works pretty goof for adjusting notification vibrations
