Here is a procedure I found on the HTC site. I tired this and so far it seems to work. YMMV
READ HERE if you are having 3G connection problems - HTC Thunderbolt (Verizon) - Android Forums - HTC Community
I found this posted on the Verizon support forum by a customer, he said to go into the Wireless Settings/Mobile Network menu and uncheck the Data Roaming box and change the Select System from Automatic to Home Only. After you do that, turn the phone off and back on. I did that earlier today and so far it has stayed on 4G and hasn't bounced between 3G and 1X like it has been.
If anyone is having issues keeping 4G, you might want to give that a try.

In response to TB showing less than 8 GB when specs read 8 GB. Included OS and Bundled software consume a little over 5GB. Available space usually will state approx 3.2 GB avail space out of box. Device should ship with 32GB SD, Attempt to move any apps to the SD card.

I don't know if this problem was posted already
Problem: I went into settings and checked off fast boot, and i would power off my device and it did the fast boot once took 10-12 seconds and every time afterwards its been booting up the old way where it takes more than a min to boot up.
Since a lot of members aren't following the request I made in post #3 about questions, I will go ahead and allow them. Actually, I should of expected this, so no offense taken by my comment. Just do me a favor, please search for other existing threads, or start a new one, if you have a problem and are looking for a solution. You are much more likely to get answered in one of those, plus you are benefiting a wider audience. I will try to do my best to answer what I can, but due to time constraints, it might not be the most effective way to get help.

Ok guys, here is my problem; it happens about 2 out of 3 times. I will leave my house (wifi turned on) and when i leave the wifi zone, it takes anywhere up to 10 minutes to catch a 3g signal. sometimes, i have to go in to the settings and turn off the network signal or airplane mode. is this common or should i just turn off wifi before i leave the house?

People can't hear me a few calls a day. Not a problem with signal, that is fine and I hear them clearly. Not sure if I have a hardware problem or if a factory reset might fix or something. Anyone have this problem? At first I thought it was other people's connections, but it happens a half dozen time/day easy, no matter where I am....

I have that problem too!
I've exchanged the phone 1x so far because of this. It's maddening. I notice that the screen lights up and dims when I have it to my face, like the proximity sensor is coming on and off. Installed Screen Suite to see if that helps the issue...not had enough calls to determine its effectiveness.
Regardless...this should NOT be happening! And you're right, it's not a signal issue. They can hear me fine.
Also doesn't matter if I take phone away and put on speaker phone, they still can't hear me.

As per an email from HTC customer service. So if you are experiencing the hissing sound, log a complaint.
HTC Mobile Phones - Customer Service - E-mail Support
Jeff, as yet this has not been seen as a trend with HTC. every call and email is flagged by the model ofthe device and the issue. This information is then gathered by HTC to see if any trends are occurring. My suggestion is to turn the device off, remove the battery for 20 seconds, replace and turn back on. If this does not resolve the issue, you will need to perform a factory reset.
Factory reset is not a step to be taken lightly. It’ll permanently delete all your data and
customized settings, and will remove any applications you’ve downloaded and installed. Be sure to
back up any data and files you want to keep before you do a factory reset using HTC Sync.

Anyone have issues with their navigation? Use to love my DINC because the navigation worked so well so I expected the same from the Thunderbolt. I'm having issues where when I type in an address, it keeps showing "searching for GPS", sometimes it'll pick up and work, but sometimes it doesn't. Any tips to fix this??

Another thing I do to add to battery life is shut the screen off right away after using it instead of waiting for the timer to shut it down. I put this app on my phone called screen off and lock, great app, it gives you about 10 different ways for your screen to power down, have mine power down like the old screen tv's.

listening to music
music app - When i am at work i listen to my music, and i have to put it on pause sometimes. If i then go to home screen for two long, text message while on pause, and even get a call it closes the music app. I have to go back in and reselect random play. Why is this?

I see in your OP for this thread you talk about how a 500 or even 750 mAh charger won't keep up in the car if using the GPS. I bought that Motorola charger you posted rated at 1A and love it. It charges in no time, even when using the GPS.
I was looking at what mount to buy and really like Arkon car mounts. They make an all in one cig lighter holder and charging mount, rated at 850 mAH. Will that charge it while using GPS? Or, even keep up? I guess, I don't wanna lose charge if worst case.
