    I love the phone and don't regret my decision at all. The only real knock is the battery life. And honestly with LTE, that's going to be every phone's Achilles heel.

    Moderate use I get 10-12 hours, light use i get about 17 hrs, heavy use i get about 6 hours. All on the standard battery. Not rooted. I love this phone and the battery life stone the latest update.

    My reboot issues went away, don't really know why. Maybe I don't know any better, this is my first Android phone, but I absolutely love it. I've kept it stock (no root). I've always had Windows Mobile. I turned off the 4g on my wife's TB and she gets 2 days from the stock battery. I get about 10 hours on average. But have gotten as little as 4 hours with heavy 4g use. Right now I wouldn't trade it for any phone out there, you can always wait for the latest and greatest, but there is always something more advanced on the horizon.
    (Love the "adapter" post.) If you find one let me know.

    I had the OG Droid, then the DX and now the T-Bolt. At first I was waffling about going back to the DX (Rooted running Liberty) but now I LOVE the T-Bolt (Running Bamf 1.1 Stripped). The 4G speed is amazing - faster than 802.11.

    (I was using the Bamf Gingerbread yesterday until the bricking scare. It was great for the 2 hours I used it. Netflix streamed HD flawlessly over 4G)

    I'll second that. Saw 4G on a friend's TB. If enough people move to 4G, that'll free up some 3G resources for the rest of us :)

    I never have problems with my phone. Experience has shown me, beyond a doubt, that 99% of people having issues are idiots.
