    Anyone else read the post from engadget? I was pretty mad when I saw the EVO 4g on there and no thunderbolt...anyone else agree?

    Even worse is the Incredible, as in the 6300 not the incredible 2... Is it only available on HTC phones a year old or what?

    This kind of crap really ticks me off. You spend top dollar for what is supposedly the most advanced phone and cheaper, less than phones get the candy. TB doesn't even support HTC Sense with all the bells and whistles. I just don't get it. Greedy corporate Bastards

    People, they released it with support for phones with a large user base. They said on their blog they plan to add support for a lot more phones. I'm sure the TBolt will be supported.

    "provide a Netflix application that will work on a large majority of Android phones."

    I have a fully functional HTCSense.com service on my TBolt. Also, I snagged the leaked version of Netflix and installed it, unfortunately the Streaming video doesn't work, but queue management does, so it's a step in the right direction.

    Make no sense to me. I'm a little upset that HTC and Verizon didn't use the TB to set a standard for their tier 4G phone(s)

    From what I am told, Verizon had virtually nothing to do with this... Netflix is being anal about what they put it on because they are worried about DRM on the Android devices. I know that it's only a matter of time that one of the Devs will be able to get a working streaming Netflix app on a Rooted TBolt.

    at first I was upset, but then I launched my LTE hotspot and connected my iPad and *poof* I had Netflix streaming beautifully:)

    I would still like to have it on my TB...but just saying.

    Yeah, we've got it on the Droid X but only using a leaked, hacked .apk which only runs on the leaked Gingerbread ROMs.

    If it's possible, I'm sure the developers have it high on the priority list since it's the only Verizon 4G device and the streaming quality would have to be better on the faster network, right?

    Now, if only it had an HDMI out...

    The original Droid has a working copy downloadable from the Market now. Netflix has posted that it's now "enabled" for any "previously unsupported" devices. The fact that the T-Bolt can't download it from any market is just ridiculous.

    Yep...my wife has my original Droid and it works perfect. Much better quality than I expected over 3g.

    The thunderbolt is gone as soon as I find a replacement ....way too much ridiculous b.s. with this phone.
