Hope of "grandfathered" unlimited LTE the only thing keeping me...
I gotta say, I'm overall disappointed with the Thunderbolt.
My "smartphone" path: Motorola Q --> LG Dare --> BB 9530 --> BB 9550 --> DInc --> ViP4 --> TB
I've rooted, customized, done my homework, etc...
Still no proper Skype, Netflix. Inexcusably horrible battery life.
I prefer Android over iOS but I liked my DInc better because at least it did what it was supposed to do very well whereas I feel like with the TB some of the basic stuff just isn't there.
At this point, the only reason I haven't gone back to my ViP4 or DInc is because I'm hoping that by staying on an LTE contract, I will be "grandfathered" in for unlimited data at this price point when the tiered plans kick in.
TB = Fail.
Sorry, just my humble opinion and personal experience with the phone...

I'm glad you put quotation marks on smartphone haha because the dare is not a smartphone.
Well hopefully you can get what you want from the bad experience with the TB. Good Luck.
Oh and don't apologize everyone has different preferences and experiences!

I liked my Tbolt before the last update. Now it reboots it self atleast twice a day and once a week it says my sd card ejected itself. I have replaced the sd card and it still does it so I'm assuming its the phone. I'm holding onto it until a dual core 4g phone gets released on Verizon.

I'm using the T-bolt as my main internet connection for home so I'll be pissed if they change my contract pricing for $30 unlimited data or even worse put a data cap on. When I bought the phone a few weeks ago, the Verzion rep assured me they wouldn't do that once you were in a contract.

The built in hopspot was giving me troubles and seems to give quite a few others troubles as well. The hotspot feature on mine kept restarting and dropping my internet every few minutes. Once I rooted the phone, I installed the wireless tether app and it was been working perfect ever since. I can stream an HD netflix movie while my son plays call of duty online at the same time with no hiccups.
