    I've had zero reboots after rooting and installing Das Bamf 1.6.3. Took a couple hours but totally worth it.

    Just got my TB in the mail yesterday. Right now it's unrooted with 2.2.1 and no reboots. Weird.

    well unless you are against rooting, i would say install a rom. i had all of the issues associated with the TB and when i flashed LTS 1.5 all my problems went away. very happy with the battery life now, and no random reboots.

    Yeah just got my TB yesterday and it updated and I've had 2 random reboots. I know a fix is being worked on so I'm not that upset yet. I'm not gonna complain just to get a refurb. I have a new phone and I plan on keeping it.

    Talked to HTC Vendor Rep Today

    I work in a Verizon Wireless call center and today the vendor reps paid a visit today to talk about our current device lineup.

    I asked the HTC rep when the battery life, random restart issues, and gingerbread is coming to the thunderbolt and he said "keep your eye out for software to roll out in 1-2 months."

    Who knows? Maybe our prayers will be answered but I won't hold my breath.

    You should have asked them about releasing a dual core LTE phone on the nation's largest carrier instead of Sprint, T Mobile & AT&T.

    So a possible 3 months or longer dealing with a phone that had become totally unreliable due to their screw up.

    Awesome business practice

    1-2 months to fix something that they and Verizon royally messed up to begin with?!?!?

    Uncceptable! If thats the case, just give us our money back and let us go to another device. Reboots are a SERIOUS problem, and if they are dragging their feet for upwards of TWO MONTHS to fix it, then I absolutely 100% demand my money back!

    Thats exactly what I suspected and why I jumped ship to X2. I really liked the Sense and the phone...but the lockups...reboots and battery drains made the phone very unreliable for everyday use...

    Does Verizon think another 1-2 months is acceptable?
    Tbolt owners have been crippled since launch date with glitches, reboot, and ommission of apps promised.
    When are they gonna get a clue and provide the level of service they tout?

    Fyi... Vendor reps have no idea about anything, so dont get all worked up, not based on what they say anyway.

    I get what you are saying about that timeframe being poor.

    But I don't get what you mean about the phone being unreliable.

    The phone runs flawlessly with no issues whatsoever. What more can you ask for?

    I'll bet he has no clue what the actual time frame is. People on this site seem to get better intel than Vz's own employees.

    I remember when I first got my Droid 1, Verizon kept promising Froyo, but it never arrived when promised. My opinion then was the same as my opinion now. It was the best phone on the market when I got it, and after it's a week old it's yesterday's news. Be happy with what you have, know it will get better and live with it. The phone still works great and the custom ROMs get better by the day. No matter which phone you buy, you're gonna be disappointed if you're still waiting for the Dick Tracy Wristwatch videophone. Try to remember DIAL phones, party lines, and telephone prefixes that start with 2 letters. Then try to convince me that the technology in your hand that out-powers all of NASA in 1975 is a pile of crap. Sorry, I'm just not feeling your pain here. Just my 2 cents worth.

    Finally someone with enough sense and knowledge to post something relevant. Nothing against anyone else or their opinions, but that hit the nail on the head

    Awww... Do you want to give him a kiss too? You say nobody else has any sense or knowledge, but then say "nothing against anyone else"??

    No more warnings - if anyone swears or flames in here the infractions will be handed out. The O.P. talked to the HTC vendor and reported back. If you don't like your phone, take it back or sell it. No need to swear and complain or tell others off.
