1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Oh where do I begin. I bought the Thunderbolt back in early April because my Droid Eris had just about had it and they told me I had a 1 year early upgrade, I took it obviously and got the Thunderbolt because it was the newest phone from Big Red. I'm on my second Thunderbolt right now and I am going to call tomorrow to have a third sent to me.

    - It is still constantly dropping data completely and most of the time data doesn't come back for at least 5 minutes.

    - It reboots whenever it feels like it. I was expecting a call for another job the other morning and I wake up to find my phone plugged in, dead and not charging.

    - At least three times a day I will go to watch a recorded video or a video on YouTube and the audio will play but the video freezes so I have to restart then.

    - I have an extended battery which is great but because I have to restart my phone all the time or it restarts itself it KILLS the battery.

    I'm not eligible for a upgrade till next Christmas and in all honesty I can't deal with this phone anymore, what should I do?

    Thanks in advance...

    The Thunderbolt must be a real piece of crap. My brother had it too for a little while and then returned it because it was a piece, and went back to the DInc

    Sorry to hear about your problems you seem to be having with your TB. I got mine the week it came out, and I'm still on the same one with no real problems I can think of. An update months ago took care of a couple minor issues, but other than apps causing little problems interfering with each other I have never really had a problem with it. I hope your situation gets better. I have an upgrade coming real soon, and don't even plan on using it anytime soon.
