    I've been around these forums for a few months and see a lot of TB issues that seem to be driving owners nuts.

    How many of you are actually HAPPY with your Thunderbolt and wouldn't trade it for the world? (At least until you can upgrade next....)

    My wait for the Bionic is getting thin and everytime I see a TB....Iw ant one, but then I remember some things that I read here.

    My cell phone is my ONLY phone, so if the reboot issue isn't resolved, there's no way I could get a TB...

    But I still want one!

    My girl and I both got TB's on launch day and love them. Battery life is my only complaint, neither of us have had the reboot issue. Neither phone is rooted and we both have the update. There is no phone out currently I would take over this one.

    Reboot issue is sparse. Some have it worse. I've had 3 then rooted and flashed bamf and have had 0. God works great. I love mine. The haters make me love it more

    At least the spontaneous power- downs help with the dismal battery life.

    For one I do not root. My Tbolt has never, I mean never given me any problem. I have the extended battery, at end of day still at
    45-55% . I watch movies, listen to music and radio much of the day. I am on 4g and Love it. No phone is the equal of a laptop or desk pc. My wife has the Charge, I do not care for it at all, short battery life. Nice camera and display, but I would not get one over Tbolt. People write and complain about toilet paper too.

    Good to see some positive responses.

    I've been sitting on this upgrade since January and the Bionic is just so undecided.

    My droid is decent but you know how it is, we always want bigger and better.

    Abso-freakin-lutely love this phone. Extended Battery is worth it. Don't even touch my laptop anymore. No random restarts and I even installed the OTA. I would make sweet love to this phone if I had an adapter.

    Are there cases that fit with the extended batteries that aren't super bulky?

    I hated mines to the point of wanting to throw it off a bridge.
    It was buggy, random reboots, 3g/4g switching failures and screen not sleeping when on a call was enough to drive me crazy.

    So before I when and got a DCharge I decided to Root.
    Was the best decision I made. All the problems mentioned above is gone (except the screen not sleeping on a call)

    I'm running B.A.M.F 1.6 remix with Imoseyon Lean Kernel. Overclocked at 1.5 ghz it runs smooth as silk. Not a single problem.

    So coming from a

    Iphone 3Gs (Att) Jailbroken,
    Behold 2 (Tmo) POS phone,
    galaxy S(TMo) Rooted,
    Droid 1 (Ver) Rooted,
    Droid 2 (Ver) Rooted (Still have. Can't find myself to part with this phone)

    This is now the best phone I ever had...Well next to my beloved D2

    Also since you mention it, size does matter lol. Its hard to look at small screens again. I still love my d1 but man that thing is small compared to the tbolt.

    I wanted a galaxy s2 but didn't want to wait either...I don't regret it at all. If u wait around u may end up on a tiered plan. :)

    This is the best cell I've had by a wide margin. I get decent 4g battery life (7-10 hours) and great 3g life (15+). I dont have random reboots and the phone is ultra smooth. I'm still running stock with the stock battery but the already huge dev community for the TBolt is a bonus as well.

    Why yes; that is a Thunderbolt in my pocket.
