    Just curious how many are keeping their new purchase and who's putting it back in the box? I for one really like it. So far it's been pretty solid and I don't really have any complaints. However I'm not so sure about the s-off. Kinda worries me, I don't want another locked up device. Thoughts, opinions?

    I just got mine replaced because of battery life and heat issues. That said, I really love the phone. It feels solid in the hand and the screen is the best. But I digress, this puppy has guts that are too good for the dev community to pass up. These guys are brilliant and will crack the code. Its not been a week as of yet since the release so we have to give the devs some time to shine.

    Came from a Bionic and can't even begin to tell you how much more I like the phone. Love a HTC product - build, appearance, UI, etc. This is a solid phone - it is what the Thunderbolt should have been.

    I jumped on the ship from the razr. :)

    My only concern is the "busted speaker" sound I get on some calls. I am not sure if its a defective speaker or not.. I am gonna go play with the one at the vzw store and see if it does the same thing.
    Other than that I really like mine. Battery life is great for a 4g device... Way better than the razr.

    No problem with speaker here. Perhaps you have a bad device...... don't wait too long to check it out! I love this phone!

    I love mine but S-off will be the deciding factor for me.

    Agreed, they have till the end of December to get S-off or im going to get a G-nex

    One thing i will say though!! There are ALOT of GREAT DEV's coming from the OG incredible that HAVE this device. So once S-off is made, there is going to be a bunch of GREAT roms!! Hell theres already roms for this phone before S-off!!! :icon_ banana::icon_ banana:

    WIN WIN.

    Yep, and the RAZR is what the Bionic should have been. :)

    Yeah, I am pretty confident that they will get s-off and there will be some great Roms for this phone. I know there are some great ones for the TB.

    Did the TB ship with s-off or did that have to be cracked as well?

    just got mine a few hours back. Took a while to set up but I've almost got it perfect. Hated the keyboard but found a better one already.

    I had 2 defective Bionics and I returned so I went back to my droid X. I have never owned an HTC before and this phone is AWESOME!!!

    I love this phone!!! I came from the Droid X and I truly loved that phone too, but the design of HTC phones are much more appealing!!

    I believe it's called go keyboard. Then I had to change the theme. I settled on "leather ". Nice because the keys now feel and look similar to my og. Probably going to dl more skins later.

    My replacement Rezound is running much cooler (I am still monitoring the battery life although it seems better as well), the bloatware is ticking me off though. There are always 3 to 5 unutilized bloatware apps running in he background and I am ready to zap all of it. I know it's been said before, but verizon is stupid if they think that trying to shove their crud down my throat (with no option to uninstall) is going to make me use it. It has the exact opposite effect on me, I actually go out of my way to make sure that I don't use it (even if I like the app). Guess I'm a little bit vengeful. :icon_evil:

    I wouldn't use a Razr if you gave it to me.
