    I abandoned the TB back in may (for all the reboot issues) for the Samsung Droid Charge. Although I love that super colorful screen, Its data connectivity issues and overall cheapness has me coming back to the TB.. VZW told me that this phone is now 100 times better than it was before the last 2 upgrades, please confirm.. My concerns are only the battery life.. Any of you switch from the Charge to the TB? Thanks in advance! also, if I use titanium back up on my rooted charge, are all the aps I backed up, now on my SD card? and will they transfer to the charge ok utilizing titanium backup? (free version) thanks again!!

    All data should restore fine on the TBolt once you have rooted and setup your phone, make sure you restore individually making sure not to restore any system apps
    As far as 100 times better (?) i guess that depends on whose rom you use, I'm currently on BAMF forever final and very happy with it, I like Liquids roms also

    battery life is ok about like any other 4g device out there i am running bamf cubed rom. i can go 10-16 hrs with light to moderate use on 4g. now heavy usage is still only 5-8 hours . it is a 4g phone so battery life suffers. i have not had single reboot in over a month.. i like this phone .. lot of hate going on over this phone . maybe i got lucky and got 2 good tbolts .

    It's rated at 1620 the stock tbolt battery is 1400, I'm completely stock and got about 20-25% more time. The stock Rezound Battery fits nicely in the tbolt, allows use of the stock back cover.
    The battery is still the weak point on this phone, but now it is only slightly less than other phones. The numbers stated above 10-16 hrs. with normal use, 5-8 with heavy use are pretty close to what I'm getting with the Rezound Battery installed. If you can deal with the Huge extended battery, then you won't have any battery issues at all.
    My thunderbolt had most of the problems that everyone knows about, but now it is pretty solid. No issues at all really.

    My stock TBOLT runs great. However, I think the battery usage is about the same as it always was. But I stay on Wifi most of the day and keep it set to 3g. I only use 4g when teathered to my Mac. So the battery is fine for me.
    It really depends on how you use it.

    I never had any issues except the battery life prior to the OTA's. I actually had a random reboot the other day, first one since GingerBread, maybe one other before the OTA. A couple of times, my homescreen "flashed" through an app but it goes right back.
    I'm stock and plug in when I'm at my desk at work, I also carry a battery pack in my jacket.
    I just got the Rezound Battery yesterday. See my post on that Thread.
    So far, nothing has made me want to change from the TB. I really like the TB, and may root it down the road.
    Come on back!
