    As the title says, what are the Thunderbolt's problems, I keep hearing about "all the thunderbolt's problems" well what are they? Haha thanks to anyone who bothers answering, though this is a legit question!

    I have zero problems with mine. I have no idea what those ppl are talking about. Maybe they need to root theirs and flash a rom? lol

    I concur. My battery keeps dying after usage. I need to figure out how to prevent that. It's like driving my car, the gas gauge goes down after driving it all week.

    I get some random reboots, and occasional problems getting a gps lock when trying to use the navigation. Both supposedly being fixed in the next update at the end of the month (so I hear).

    No other issues for me, had it since launch.

    My two issues are the battery which has been awful & when I have the phone in 3G, the internet is really slow, slower than any 3G phone I've ever had. My last two phones were the Droid Eris and the Motorola Droid.

    Ok, forgot about that! I'm with everyone else. I don't want to be stuck with this phone for 2 years if this issues aren't fixed

    My thunderbolt would random reboot 2 or 3 times a day . The battery life was awful even just sitting with the screen off and in my pocket . As you can see from my sig I no longer own one.

    Agree about both things.

    Plus a prime example is my phone rebooted while trying to post this the 1st time.

    Reboots several times a day.
    Battery is terrible and rebooting several times a day absolutely murders the battery life.

    Data services are unreliable and I can be stuck in 1x land for hours (and I'm in a really good signal area )

    Gps lock takes a long long time not that it matters since when using maps for turn by turn directions the phone can reboot at any time rendering that feature useless.

    Speaker is not terrible...but fairly weak for such a touted feature .

    All in all the phone was obviously rushed when it had so many problems. It should never have been released like this

    I see. Well random revolts I knew about, they would be fixed with virtually any half decent custom ROM. Battery, well HTC phones have a reputation for bad batteries, how can you only throw 1400mAh on a 4.3inch 4G phone?! Even the Evo has a bigger battery (though still not big enough). But anyway, one could just adjust CPU voltage and frequency... wouldn't help too too much but it would help. As for it getting hot, probably more a hardware issue, though ALL smartphones get hot with heavy use.

    All that being said, I'm flashing that ROM... Forget the name haha but its sense 3.0 and includes a CPU governor and I think tethering patch is preinstalled... if not ya know there's EPST.

    Anyway thanks for the relies, if something wasn't mentioned, keep em (the posts) coming!

    Me to.

    People keep listing things to do to improve battery life.

    Basically strip away every feature that makes it a smart phone, turn the brightness down to where you can barely see it. And never use it unless u receive a call or text .

    Might as well go back to a flip "dumb" phone then.

    U shouldn't have to do all of that just to last a full day

    Even on 4G a phone should last a lot longer if its just sitting idle in your pocket.
