    Totally stock here.

    Between the firmware induced reboots or just turning itself off and the terrible indoor reception or the way to often losing data connection.

    I am pretty much done with this pos phone.

    Hopefully HTC will iron out these bugs with the next update. A buddy of mine is having similar issues. How long have you had the phone?

    About a week after it came out.

    Between all that plus a terrible battery and Skype being dropped at the las minute....if u really think about it this phone kinda sucks.

    And a phone rebooting or flat out turning itself off is a huge deal....not some small gripe.

    I'm sure with HTC track record this will be addressed and fixed only problem in having is data and its really annoying.. just cuz u have one or 2 bars does not mean u have bad reception if that's what ur going by.. I also get this echo all the time when I call people..

    It's a shame because I really like HTC sense and the size and specs of this phone.

    You do realize that a leaked version of Skype was posted, right? And that version does work on the Thunderbolt and also works with video conferencing as well.

    Sounds like you have a bad phone. Take it back and get a replacement.

    And stop trying to inflate your post count in this thread with 1 line complaints

    It doesn't SUCK. You have a bad device. In plenty of phone reviews this is rated as one of the best phones out. Try another one.

    Yea the Thunderbolt is pretty bad I had mixed feelings with it to begin with but my friend/coworker owned one for about a month
    And she was complaining about the constant 4G drops, experiencing random reboots and if she wrote a message longer then 140 characters it would fail to send. Right before she was about to finally take it back to Verizon she dropped it...about table height to a carpet floor and the screen shattered on her... what happened to durability being a selling point for a phone!
