Possibility of TB's software breaking in the first 3 months?

First off, I want to say that I do not want to start any arguments, nor do I want to start a HUGE, potentially incorrect rumor.
I just want to see if anyone else has heard this.

My father was at a verizon kiosk stand yesterday at Costco, and the man there told him that because the TB is the first phone on Verizon's LTE, that there is potential for the phone to break internally (not physical damage, more software crashes, etc) in the first 3-4 months of use.

I didn't pay too much attention to this, because people on android forums across the net, have been saying not to trust Verizon reps, clerks, etc.

I understand that HTC phones are pretty solid, good phones, both internal and external (except maybe the screen b/c of no gorilla glass?)

However, with this long delay, that nobody is 100% sure of why it's happening, what if Verizon releases the phone just to get it out, and bugs are apparent, and will hit us after the first 3 months?

Have any of you been told on this?

Never heard this. I'm expecting bugs as is the case with any new software/hardware. But I'll also expect software patches and OS updates.

And the phone is under warranty for a year for software issues.

The BlackBerry Tour that I'm using has a fatal error caused by a VZW official OS. VZW just replaced the phone, no hassles.

It sounds to me like they were just to make a sale that day instead of having your dad wait for the Thunderbolt.

Oh, and BTW, my Incredible's screen is made of Gorilla glass (at least that's what I've read).
