    I mean? Is there anymore rumors on gingerbread? No more speculations? Nothing? ICS? Anything!?

    ICS is along way away for most devices. I'm sure the tbolt will see official GB soon enough.

    If you are waiting for OTA GB you probably have a long wait as they pulled the last update because it too was faulty. I know you don't want to root, but unless you do you won't have GB. HTC just can't seem to put a an update that not full of bugs. I rooted and I'm not that smart. Just read the instructions. The 5 minute update took me a few hours, but I got it done. My phone is close to perfect now.:)

    HTC got out their GB update before Sept. 30. That was their only goal. Now soon after the update was pulled and in addition a security hole has been found in Sense. Have we heard word one on the fix for the update for people who got it(vm notifications), a release window for them re-releasing the full ota for people who didn't get the update, or even an update on the security hole besides "we're looking into it"? No. ICS for the TB is a pipe dream going by HTC's current record. In a nutshell HTC can go screw themselves. They have seriously botched the TB and in my view their reputation. The TB will be the last HTC phone I ever buy.

    Same here. Next time around I will make sure I invest my money in something worth investing in because that is what a phone is, an investment

    If buying a cellphone is an investment its the worst investment you can make. It loses value soon as u walk out the door with it. If you really want gb and can't wait for the final release then go to droidpolice.com and install the ruu if its still posted. Will have the bugs in it. And u don't have to root. or wait for the final ota release.

    Well exactly, they deserve to give us all new phones or to be reimbursed. But just like a brand new car loses its value soon as it is off the lot. Soon as you take your phone out of the store with it you lose value.

    rooting?

    I'm really showing just how much of an amateur I am in asking this question but what ever I DO know about phones & computers has all been self taught thru good 'ol "trial & error" lol... so, here's my question: What exactly is "being rooted" verses not; how do you get "rooted" and what are the 'risks' and benefits of doing so?
    If this is too complex of a series of questions to answer, I will understand ... I REALLY want the best for my phone and if being rooted is 'the best' then I wanna try it:)

    Man you guys are overly dramatic about this whole thing. My Thunderbolt works perfectly. I've been on gingerbread for months.

    My voicemail notifications work and never had a reboot issue.

    Its my best phone to date compared to the D1,D2,DX, .

    Some people just love to feed into all the negativity instead of being happy.

    So wait, let me get this right. Our phones suck and yours is working so we are over reacting? That makes sense. This is the worst pile of crap on the market and im getting an iphone. I hear that phone dosent reboot, lose its sound, lose its video, lose its notifications. HTC has proven there worth
