    I just changed from Droid X to a thunderbolt (after hours of problems...) now here I am trying to get Thunderbolt. The problem is it won't pick up 3G!!! (I am in 3g area in Virginia) And I have only seen it pick up 3g for 2 minutes ONCE! My droid x was picking up 3g fine and now blah...I googled it and have tried doing things like dialing the **numbers and hitting "enable" etc...but no avail! (I also tried changing it to CDMA only or w/e)
    It barely stays at 1x...I am not paying $200 month for this crap!!:icon_evil:

    OFC called Verizon like 5 times and their best thing is trouble ticket and restart phone ZZZzzzzzz

    /rant sorry

    Help please!

    Take it into the local Verizon store. If they see it not getting signal, and other phones in the store are, then they can troubleshoot and/or replace it.

    Do you think they will replace it if I got it from a friend and don't have receipt? The warranty is still in place so...

    If you got it from a friend then there is no warranty. It only covers the original buyer. I've found this out the hard way.

    Have your friend take it in, then.

    just ignore people who say you're whining when something is wrong with your phone, man. best bet is just go to verizon store and have them take a look. since you just bought it, they'll replace it for you if its something thats not fixable...

    EDIT: Sorry didn't realize its from a friend. Well you can still take it in to verizon they may be able to take a look at it. They won't replace it though

    You can also address it with HTC directly. VZW probably won't help with a warranty issue, but the manufacturer may.

    Give it back and keep your X. IMO, you down graded to an HTC phone. I'll never buy HTC again. JMHO.

    Good luck!

    There is obviously something wrong with it. You can't claim and entire line of phones suck from one faulty unit.

    My thunderbolt gets better reception than both my d1 and x2, this isn't a problem that's spans the entire line
