    well, my brother and myself both have the new htc thunderbolt. we have had them for 11 days now, and both have had constant issues.

    they both keep going fron 3G down to 1X, and just while sitting here at home they go from 3 or 4 bars to NONE at all and saying no service. (we do not have 4G LTE anywhere near here at all)

    so should i try to return it and get a different phone, like a fascinate or droid x?

    on mine, when ever i am on the phone, people are constantly saying they cant hear me talking hardly at all.

    one issue i see, and this is purely cosmetic, but where the charger plugs in, the little "prongs" that stick up to hold the charger have started scratching the plastic when removing the plug in. thats a poor design there. that should be all metal in there, but this is all cosmetic, nothing more nothing less. I am mainly concerned about the issues above.

    Verizon and HTC are already working on some fixes and it's reported to be coming soon. Although no official date has been set, the official RUU is said to have been leaked online. Read more here: HTC Thunderbolt OTA Leaked | Eugene O'Rourke

    So sorry you are having trouble with your TB. I love mine and have had no problems. You might want to take it back and get another to try before you consider a different phone.

    My last day to return/exchange this phone was thursday (4/20/11) and if i would have got another thunderbolt and still had issues, i would have been out of luck if that did not work for me. my 14 days would not start over at the time of getting a different phone. the only 14 days i get is starting from the day i upgraded and got the original phone. i decided to opt for the droid x. now all i need to do is figure out a good cover for it.

    Droid X is an excellent phone.. and if you are in a n area without 4g anyway you are not missing out on anything.

    Verizon should be releasing a software update that will fix all these issues.. my suggestion would be .. download "phone info" off of the market and switch from cdma+4gLTE to just plain cdma until the update
