    Phone has been rebooting constantly the past few days. This morning i called 911 when i noticed my truck and work trailer was missing and the phone power cycled. It did it again when I was on the phone with my insurance company, and also while I was talking with tier 2 tech support. I used my wife's phone after work to talk to Verizon about the issues and they were willing to ship a refurbished phone. I denied the refurbished phone but after thinking about it and the jerk who took my call, I'm going to take the refurbished pos and will call them every Monday with a new complaint.

    Have you tried the radio upgrade? So far my battery life has been better. And no reboots. Signal strength has been improved as well.

    no root required.
    Full MR2 Update Leaks for HTC Thunderbolt, Fix Those Reboot Problems Now - Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog
    just follow the instructions. i would do this first before i even set up the phone simple b/c this wipes data

    there is also mr2.5 but i believe that is only for root users at the moment.

    Does this effect the warranty?

    Just curious... why would you call 911 to report something being stolen? Was your child in the car or something... 911 is for emergencies

    Did you back up your phone and then do a full factory reset? This is standard operating procedure. Regarding the 911 call and theft... I'll leave that to you.

    I take it people don't read much about their phone.

    Look...another bash thread for tc3 and crew to start trash talking on the bolt.

    Yeah OP, that's no bueno but I too am sick of reading all the negatives about the bolt. I've had mine almost a month STOCK and it's been great. Sucks for those that are having issues but if they are offering a refurb I'd take it and see if it works.

    Just do the MR2 update. You are crap shooting with a refurb. I was having chronic reboots, and since the MR2 update I haven't had any!
