    With the wildly known Thunderbolt problems there is no way anybody would get the $350 etf not to mention having to fork over another few hundred dollars for a new device.

    Beardface is totally right on this.

    I find it interesting that no one has mentioned the power button. One of the tabs break, which makes the button loose and sloppy. Had two CLNR Thunderbusts sent to me with this problem last week.

    I've had no problems and I'm running stock. I love my TBolt. The G2 and Bionic look pretty sweet, but enjoy that $50/month data plan.

    Quick perusal of Ebay suggests otherwise...but whatever. Rage on.

    It seems like its an issue with Android and integrating it to the manufacturers standards and customizations... maybe porting Sense to Gingerbread is hard, nonetheless its ironic how third party part time devs get it right when dedicated expert manufacturers cannot. My two cents.

    Get the BAMF 3.0 RC3 and MR2 Radio all your problems will be solved.

    I bought the Thunderbolt expecting to have issues to work around, it's part of the hobby. Stop your crying. If you're not savvy enough to work on the phone yourself, get a different one. Someone nailed it a couple posts back......go get an iPhone since they fix issues quickly.....that ought to be pretty fun.

    I have a Corvette Z06. It's all stock. It doesnt need mods because it's a Corvette Z06. Sure I could thrown on intake, headers, exahust, new cam, dyno tune, etc.. but the car works pretty good out of the box.

    That's how it should be. The Thunderbolt should work great out of the box. Any mod potential on top of that should be gravy. In no way should modding the phone be required to acheive acceptable performance.

    Yea, ya know, hobby? A regular activity or interest that is undertaken for pleasure, typically done during one's leisure time.

    I have several, my phone, my car, firearms etc.

    If you aren't here for pleaseure and it's taking up more than your leisure time, get a flip phone and a PDA. You'll save money too.

    Advanced technology is not for everyone.
