+1 on loving my Bolt. I had some reboot issues before they even had the update out that is causing all these problems. Seemed like every time I was listening to an audiobook, I could count on it rebooting. I don't know what I changed, but zero reboots now and everything running buttery smooth.
I don't think there has been a day I haven't love my phone it's doing everything I need it to without any issues. I know my wife would hate the Bolt because she needs a physical keyboard which I find useless. That's one of the biggest benefits of being and Android user because we have so many choices of phones. A question for the op what problems or issues are making you hate your Bolt?
Same as those above, I have had almost no issues with my phone and at some point during each day I say to myself, "wow, this phone is awesome!". I am coming from the OG Droid and the size, speed, power are all great. I have decent battery life (no 4G in my area) and only a few reboots over the last few weeks. I am VERY happy!
OP, if you haven't already done so try taking the phone back to Verizon and have it replaced. Also remember that geographic location plays an important role with signal coverage. If you've never experienced this problem with Verizon's network then it may be due to the device.
I was a little frustrated with my bolt at first, but I am starting to come to love it. I've only had it for about 10 days and it is just so different from my Droid X, which I knew inside and out. The more I learn and the more I get used to doing things with the Thunderbolt, the more I like it. Besides the battery, most of my issues were self inflicted, lol.
Constant loss of the 4G signal.
Horrendous battery life stock and extended
WiFi doesn't work right
Reboot and shutdowns
HTC website skin capability doesn't work
Consistent lag almost freezing.
And chrissy I complain because I want this phone to be what HTC and VZW said it would be. I can deal with all touch I get used to it more and more each day.
