I am considering the purchase of a new Thunderbolt however the reading I have done is not very flattering on the battery life for the Thunderbolt. I was wondering if anyone had any idea whether or not HTC has plans in the works to fix the issue? Does it look like a hardware fix is needed or will it be a firmware upgrade to fix? Overall just wondering if this phone is a smart investment for me. I use my current BB Tour for corporate email, texting, cruising the web, occasionally I would probably want to play a game, and of course placing and receiving calls. Don't believe I would call myself an extreme user at this point but I would use it quite extensively. I do work in an office so would have access to charging throughout the day but also want to make sure I am not charging it every 2 hours if I can avoid it. Thanks for your feedback. Mike.
