    Verizon trumpets they are finally pushing out the Ice Cream Sandwich update to the HTC Thunderbolt today! Yay! Wait... what? Oh yeah... that update. We told you it was coming last week, and probably should have been here about a year ago or so... Welp, it's here now. Here's their thrilling press release below,

    I'm still baffled this ever got released. I mean, the Thunderbolt is in its upgrade time frame for most people and many have probably ditched it already.

    Who really still has the TB? I liked mine, never had an issue with the original one I got day #1 of the TB release, and sold it when my next upgrade to the S3 happened in September. Sort of a little late now to be excited about a ICS update on a phone that hasn't been sold by VZW in quite some time.

    Well, you can't blame VZW/HTC for trying ... way too little wayyyyy too late though. If they wanted to wait this long, they could've at least built it up to 4.2. Loved it when I had it, but glad I got rid of it when I did. Hopefully the new Rom will help with its battery life.

    Yeah, for those that received it, is it an improvement? Does it run well?

    This might make me hold out for a new release this spring. Was going to get my wife a GSIII, but if there's a GSIV or something else great around the corner we might try and wait.

    I pulled mine out of the drawer and updated it but it seems slow and laggy to me... Might just be that I am so used to the S3 now.....

    I updated my thunderbolt and I can say it gave life to the old phone. I just wish all phones were nexus so you have to deal with Verizon. I hate Verizon
