    Nothing on release date, pricing, LTE plans, etc., she just gave me the phone and said "have fun!"

    With the Demo phones, you are handcuffed in to whatever Verizon sets you up with, you can add features. This one appears to have a full compliment of features on it... WiFi Hotspot, Wired Tethering, Visual Voicemail, etc.

    Well I took it as one, even if you didn't mean it to be. I have a very good sense of humor and saw no hint of a joke or sarcasm in the comment/pic. I guess it's just me though...

    Much thanks! I expected that is what it would be and am gratified to hear you are getting decent operating life from it.

    In my mind, that disputes the myth that one would not get the SIM card until VZW finalizes the LTE pricing structure. I thought that VZW will withhold the SIM card and make you operate only on 3G until LTE pricing is finalized, at which point, they would release the SIM card to you if you want LTE.

    Thanks for answering my question! I'd click on the Thanks button, but this forum does not have one!

    Yeah, it's been off the charger for 4.5 hours now. With the display set to about 25% brightness, two Exchange email addresses (both set to Push email) and one POP email set to poll every 15 minutes and the battery shows at 50%. Keep in mind that I am also playing with the phone a bit more than I would normally.

    It's not an amazing battery by any means, but this 1-2 hours battery life report is not something that I can duplicate unless I was watching the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy while talking to my friend on the phone.

    I like where your head is at, but unfortunately no. I am even testing out a Motorola Xoom currently as well and that doesn't have an App nor does the FireFox BETA Browser trick Netflix.com into thinking it is a different OS.

    Hey Johnboy. Mind the haters--the Thunderbolt topic is a warzone. Totally appreciate the information and everything! So jealous >.>

    The fact that you have one functioning in hand must mean that they can't be far off for us too.

    Great to get some real info,even if it does kill my theory of being able to use the Bolt on 3G w/o the LTE SIM card. :eek: Does this mean Thunderbolt owners will have to sign up for an LTE plan?
