    I'm about an inch away from buying a tb on ebay, but I'm worried about reboots everyone is complaining about. I know the tb just got an update. Did the update fix some issues?

    I'm not rooted...the update fixed REBOOTS & GPS! I wasn't having many reboots, only had a few here and there but the GPS Navagation always had a hard time locking on my position. I will say it is really quick lock-on and I'm thrilled to have it working it the way it should.

    Mine has rebooted once since the update and that was because I long pressed the power button and chose reboot. I was on an airplane and thought I hit Airplane mode. LOL Yeah...I'd say the update fixed the reboots.

    From all that I've read, if u r staying stock, the update fixed those issues for the majority tb's out there. However if u decide to root, you'll never see those issues. I'm proof of that.

    Keep in mind though that the battery is terrible ....by far the worst of any phone I've ever had.

    We have two of them and love them, never had any issues. Not one random reboot between them.

    Batter life with any 4G phone is a challenge, but it also depends on how much you use your phone. Some people complain they only get a few hours. I'm not a heavy user, I never get less than 12 hours out of my stock battery and often get as much as 24. That's with screen brightness on auto and not pushing out any notifications except for email every 4 hours. Just depends on what you require/want out of your phone.

    Better?

    Answer: yes. My rebooting issue seemed delayed from when others complained about it. Mine was on its way to being very much worse than I could tolerate. Let me throw this in as well, mine did not always reboot but worse it would turn itself off. Not the battery died thing, by the way. Very annoying especially when I was expecting return calls to find the phone had turned itself off.

    So, simply, yes OTA number 2 is a big welcome help to making the ThunderBolt much better. Next victory is getting Gingerbread in official form. Yeah, I know, root and get now...for me not yet. I do not like roulette wheel of which portion of my phone won't work with some other ROM. My choice...

    I have witnessed a reboot since the update.
    However, now I have a different problem. My TB gets so sluggish that it won't even respond to screen touches, and the only way to get it back is to reboot.

    Mine had the power down and not turn back on thing but it was very rare i didn't have any reboot problems.. and I would get the extended battery if I were you.
