    Ditto, I remember this exact thread when I got the Droid 1 :). lol And I've seen it with every other phone too. Glad to see I'm not the only one with that dejavu feeling.

    No problems here.

    I had this thunderbolt for about 1.5 weeks. I never dropped a call the voice quality is great. I've been compairing this phone to the LG revolution almost like everyday. (at the store) On the topic of reception I think it looks like it's getting a weak singal but it really is not. At the Verizon store the thunderbolt (mine and theirs) only regestered 2 bar the lg had 5. but as far as I know it works fine. I've tested this phone in the back of walmart, in my elevator, in the bathroom at the hilton hotel (that dropped) but it was in a weak area and the building was steal. But it worked fine in the lobby.

    The only two issues I'm having with my thunderbolt (which is not really an issue) is at my house my internet connection constatnly switches from 3G to 4G however I'm right on the border and I asked would this happen with any phone with my circurimstances the answer was yes. So I just keep it on either 3G or 4G soly. the other issue is voice search does not work correctly with update. But I uninstalled update to voice search now my GPS and voice reconition is much better but I don't have commands. but I found an app that will let me do voice commands

    I have not had reboot issues I have not had dropped calls (under most circomstances, I'm surfing fine and I'm near Fort Lauderdale FLA

    One of the 1st things I noticed.

    Outside 4 bars solid, step into most buildings and drops to no bars and often 1x

    I just tested next to a Droid 2 Global. TB had -97 and D2G had -91. Is this a big difference?
