    Default CONTEST GIVEAWAY: One Spotify invite for a Thunderbolt user

    Hey everyone. I have one remaining Spotify invite so I figured I would share it with my pals right here in the Thunderbolt forum on AC.

    But since it's only one, I can't just give it to the first replier. I gotta make this fun.......

    To enter, tell us all the most awkward situation you've ever been able to get yourself out of using your Thunderbolt. Since I understand that not everyone has been in one, just make one up!

    Get me to laugh the hardest and the invite is yours. Contest ends at 10:00 PM eastern time (three hours from now) and I will send out the invite shortly thereafter.

    I figured that this would also bring a lighter side to this "where's my Gingerbread??????" filled forum.

    I was being yelled at by my boss and used my bolt to take a fake call when I finished my boss asked who called. I said it was his wife and if he did not give me my raise she wasent going to have fun with him tonight. He gave me raise and promptly ran home.

    True story, was walking into a store when Pandora unexpectedly reconnected and started playing Nine Inch Nails' from my bulging pocket. Of course I didn't notice for almost the full length of the song. Instead of quickly disarming the thing, I went about my business, wondering what possessed the big box store staff to play "Closer" over the store's speaker system instead of the usual bland elevator music. Needless to say, the Baby's R Us patrons were not impressed.

    While entering a crowded elevator, my Thunderbolt rebooted itself, probably because it lost 4G or something. I don't know why, that was back before the last OTA, and it doesn't matter. But when the muffled thunder-crack went off in my pocket, I absentmindedly said "um, excuse me", at which point everyone started giggling.

    There are caveats to that, such as the fact that it doesn't give you the true "free" account. Its limited even more. And not everyone wants to bother. Now stop ruining the fun.

    I'm not the judge of this contest but I would say you're the winner as it stands. Lmfao! Finally, an entertaining reboot story.

    Back in the heady days when the Thunderbolt's Mobile Hotspot was free as in beer, I'd place it in the 40mbps 4G sweetspot in my flat (inside a flowerpot hanging off the deck) to watch HD Netflix on my 50 inch. Configuring wifi on a 360 is kind of a pain in the ***, so I just left security off. As an added bonus, my roommates figured out they didn't need a password to connect to the "BigBoy" network, and would leave me alone to scuttle off to their rooms and watch God-knows-what on their laptops. Whatever they were doing must have involved a hell-of-a lot of bandwidth, because my Thunderbolt would get hot enough to singe the begonias.

    Anyway, that's how I got into the habit of just leaving the hotspot on: so my creepy roommates would leave me alone so I could watch Futurama in peace.

    Several weeks later I was at work and the internet went down. It was like crunch time or something for one of the teams on my floor, so they were pretty desperate, and when they saw that vanilla "Open Wireless Networks Available" message pop-up in their XP toolbar, they all connected. Of course, I was more than a little pissed because all of a sudden my Thunderbolt started burning a hole into my leg, just as I was leaving for lunch. It was perfectly clear who the culprits were after I checked the manage users screen, and I told them that my girlfriend was picking me up for lunch and they'd have to get their darn internet from somewhere else.

    I was down in the parking lot, getting into her car, when one of the team members opened the second story window and screamed out: "Wait, don't leave us, Big Boy!".

    Sorry to sidetrack the contest but to the OP are you rooted or running GB mod? Because I have talked to friends who get error message when trying to load app on Thunderbolt and I contacted Spotify and they also told me to check their site for it becomes workable on our phone but as of right now is not compatible -
    The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving.

    Well, I gotta say that I am really surprised there weren't more entries considering how chaotic the search has been for Spotify invites today. The entries given though were great. Very good job guys. But unfortunately, there can only be one winner. And that winner is...

    The Thunderbolt I'm using right now is stock and unrooted. Spotify was working fine for me when I was using it earlier. Was listening to music through it while driving.
