Ok so the battery life sucks. I bought the extended battery and problem solved. There's only a handful of cases that fit the extended battery and now we have another problem. Recently my phone has been either losing data connection all together or switching to 1x or on rare occasions 3G. I live in a 4G area and so far the network has not gone down around here. Restarts and battery pulls sometimes fix the problem fix the problem but its just temporary. Now everyday when I go to stream a video online or play a video I shot myself the video will not play and all that comes through is sound. A restart will fix this but its just temporary. All this restarting my phone literally kills the battery because booting this beast up drains so much juice and defeats the purpose of an extended battery. My question is I'm going to Verizon tomorrow and the phone is still under the 1 year factory warranty and I have insurance. Will I be able to swap out for another Thunderbolt or will I have to wait for them to send me a refurbished phone?
