Who is going to wait on the reboot update after it comes out?
I just got my Thunderbolt 3 days ago. And I didn't update because of all the problems that are with the phone after it. None of which I am wanting to deal with. So who is gonna hold off on this update when it comes out and who is having so much trouble they don't care what happens now? lol

I'm rooted running BAMF 1.7 Remix. I've only had 1 unexpected reboot (that I know about) since I bought the phone in March.
I'll wait until some custom ROMs are released based on this update before I try it out. (Hopefully the BAMF guys do some work with this one).
The only thing I'm really curious about is if battery life on 4G with the new radio is improved, in which case I'll be eager to load it...otherwise I'm pretty happy with how my device is running right now.

I'll do it when it comes out also. soccerfon711 is right can't be worse than the multiple reboots we are having now.
2 reboots already today and it was just sitting on my end table at home not doing anything & BAM! reboot LOL . At this point its getting comical "There is goes again! Just rebooted LOL" It's almost like a game how many times will your TBolt reboot today?

I think one thing a lot of folks are missing here, probably because the next update is reputed to "fix reboots", is that it is a Radio update! That's a big deal. Not only might it fix reboots, but also may fix any connectivity issues you may have experienced (i.e. 1x, 3G, 4G or loss of data connection). Since virtually all of the TBolt's have some issues with data connectivity, I think it is worth a shot.
I mean, if they advertised "fix data connectivity issues", how many of you would be all over it?
Actually, I guess that might be mentioned when the final is released. We'll see.

Anyone having reboot issues ought to go back to stock and get Big Red to replace their phone. It might be a slight pain in the ****, but I'm on my third new Thunderbolt....just got the 3rd one yesterday and have it all set up. It's not even running the OTA update that causes the reboots. Verizon ships them FedEx next day air...so I get them fairly quickly. all the techs have wanted me to do was a Factory reset, which I always do...and then if the reboots don't stop (and I haven't found one yet that didn't), then they send me a new phone. I think everyone ought to do this until they fix the update.

Well, a lot of people are under the assumption that the radio is the culprit in all the reboots in the first place, so it's only natural that a new radio would have to be part of whatever update they would need to release to fix them.
As a rooted user, I've tried just about every radio version available, and frankly, none of them are without flaw so far.
Besides the reboots, you also have the 3G/4G switching problems, the uber power drainage that occasionally occurs on 4G, the GPS locking issues, and the list goes on. I am quite anxious to see what they've done with this one...not to mention any other improvements to the OS as well (although I think we'll all have to wait for GB to really be impressed by that).
