    I have the TB and have used it for 1 week. My wife had one and exchanged it for an Iphone. I am on the fence and have to make my final decision in the next 72 hours (need to go on a trip for sick mother-in-law up to a week). So have to make final decision by Saturday/Sunday.

    I love the phone except for the battery life. In addition I love the fact that I could tether down the road with this phone.

    I know that with the current factory setup, I will exchange it for an Iphone. My hope was that there would be an update by now from HTC/VZN but that isn't happening. So, I am willing to hire somebody (I realize $50 isn't much for many) but maybe an experienced hacker/programmer can help me.

    I would like to:

    1) Backup the existing software/Rom/RUU//radio/Kernel/???? [no idea what is the correct terminology]
    2) Update the phone to an unrooted version. Test it for a day and see if the battery life is better than the 4-6 hours I am getting now with minimum apps (no wifi & no bluetooth).
    3) Be able to revert it back to factory and exchange for iphone if unhappy during test period.

    Is this possible? If so, anybody up for the challenge?

    If so, please email me at atwnsw@gmail.com

    Am I dreaming?

    Thanks in advance for your advice, help and consideration.

    Anthony

    Don't know if this will help your cause but since root my battery life has improved. In this pic I think my display time was 2 hours and call time was 30 minutes. Not heavy usage but before root and ROM I was only getting about 8 hours tops no matter how I used it.

    There are many ways to root and it is not that hard. Just read the whole tutorial before proceeding. Just removing bloatware really helps battery.

    I would be willing to do this. But I am not local. I can promise you that you will love the T-bolt after root. I am running GB and getting excellent battery life

    Alright guys, stop the bickering. There was no need for that remark INSANENEIVIESIS was just trying to be helpful. Let's get back on track.

    Did you ever get the help you needed? How did things work out?

    Did you return the phone?
