    I love my phone to death guys but lately its been really annoying with a few things. For example... Sometimes it will not show up on my notification bar that i have received a txt, even though i have that option selected. Other times when my volumes are all the way up my keyboard type sound doesnt play. Just little stuff bugs i guess. Sometimes i have to restart the phone to get the gps to work. Can anyone offer any advice? Does anyone else have a prob here or there? Thanks everyone i dont want to return it!!!

    About the only problem I ever have is the notification led will blink keeping flashing even after all notifications have been read. It will only stop if I tap the status bar. GPS has been flawless but, I reboot my phone at least once a day anyway :)

    So far its been flawless with 2700 battery. I did have a problem when I first tried to use the how navi. But after that no problems to complain about. Loving the phone. Its a big step up from my d1.

    Do you have any battery saving apps (juice defender or green power) installed by any chance?

    I.hate.where.they.put.the.period.button.on.the keyboard.when.using.landscape.mode. I.use.my.right.thumb.to.hit.space.after.a.word, it.always.messes.me.up.

    I'm not really that bad with it, but its annoying as all hell to type something out that the processor struggles to keep up with, only to see a few .'s sprinkled randomly throughout what you just typed.

    What I hate is that the stock messaging app is incredibly slow when trying to view another thread after sending a text message to someone.

    I do like the keyboard on my Droid X better than the one on the T-Bolt.

    I also had to pay full price for this since my X was only 3 months old so I have to love this phone or return it. Of course we all know there were some network issues the first few days causing all sorts of frustration.

    But I can say now that there is no way I'm going back to my X. My X was an awesome phone but the T-Bolt has more to offer me. I also had a D1 and the Rom flashing ability was something the X could never match due to the locked bootloader.

    My Thunderbolt is now working flawlessly and I rooted it yesterday. 4g is great and my battery is no worse than my X.

    After giving it serious thought my Thunderbolt is here to stay!

    Reboot your phone once a day or every other day by simply having it on and just pull the battery.

    Micro USB is in the worst spot ever. Guess they want you buying the dock. I have to admit though I really like the phone on the kickstand in portrait. Everyone that sees it comments.

    That said, the stock dock is great.

    I am not too fond of it's word completion, especially coming from the D1's, which, to me, was significantly more intuitive and astute at suggesting better choices for completion.

    With the TB, it seems like I nearly have to finish typing the word before it will suggest that word. My D1 was better at that.

    Also, the word selection bar covers the "Send" button in portrait mode.

    And it tends to save the word when all I want is to just use the word and not save it.

    My only real complaint is the lack of a camera button like my D1. Every other difference is just a matter of getting use to it, whether it's different buttons or placements or wording.

    - Home screen doesn't rotate in landscape. Very amateur.
    - That bleeping Backup Assistant error icon that never goes away
    - Swype seems terrible on the TB. Worked great on the D1.
    - USB connector location, as mentioned.
    - No matter how many times I confirm that I have assigned different ringtones to different people in my contacts list, only the global ringtone plays, regardless of who calls. And my custom ringtones disappear from the list and reappear when they feel like it.
    - Phone earpiece is eardrum-splitting loud on lowest volume.
    - LED color limitation blows
    - Photos disappear from Gallery and have to be found using a file browser.

    I have experienced some of the annoyances mentioned already. Like the auto complete and the suggestion bar in the way of the send button. I came from a d1 and will take these small issues over the d1 any day. I'm very happy I switched.

    At least it has an LED.

    See Samsung products.

    -Horrific amounts of bloatware

    I'm waiting until my free wifi hotspot runs out to root it, this is my first smart phone of any kind so I'm pretty new at it. I'll be very glad to be free of all this junk popping up in the background and bogging down my processor/memory.

    -Kickstand doesn't work when charging (landscape)

    They may as well have included a dock with the stock package and charged an extra 30 bucks for the whole thing. Very annoying.

    -Stock messenger is terrible

    Very slow when switching between contacts, sometimes I'll check a new message and close it without replying quickly and the notification will still be there.
