We are never getting an update

I have a feeling HTC will say the processor is to old for 4.0.

Tired of waiting. I have a Thunderbolt and it's rooted. I would not mind adding a Rom to it but none are available for 4.0 or above. GRRRRR

No ICS 4.0 Love for the HTC EVO 4G...

Sad Damn. Guess that's how manufacturers force the hand if the consumer into an upgrade eventhough the hardware can more than handle it..

HTC vs.

I am a Nokia phone person but HTC from Taiwan has come well into its own in the U.S. market since smart-phones have infiltrated the scene. I have an HTC Ozone and I am more than pleased with it. It's a matter of choice and taste. Shame Nokia's presence has not diversified itself more in the U.S. They were phenomenal when more basic phones were predominant. User-friendly, durable. Hopefully they come out with more smart-phones as well.

Be Careful with the "Simultaneous Voice/Data Claims

I've seen a lot of misinformation on this floating around. The Thunderbolt (and all 4G LTE phones for years to come) have multiple radios, one for LTE-4G and one for CDMA. Where LTE is available, you will be able to talk and surf just fine. While 4G is an all-ip technology, Verizon will continue to use the CDMA network for voice at least initially.

For those who don't live in areas covered by LTE, or when you can't pick up LTE signal for any reason, you will be on 3G/CDMA and it will then work like any other Verizon smartphone! And who knows how well the Thunderbolt will be implemented with 3G fallback. For example, if you are on the internet and move out of range on LTE, will the connection stay open? What if you are on the phone when y...

Bluetooth issue?

My brother who had been with AT&T from 2001-2011 got his T-Bolt this March 2011. It took me 10 yrs to convince him to come over to Verizon.

I have been with Verizon since 2001. My original Moto Droid phone is acting up more in the last week or so.

A few days ago I texted him if there were any issues with his T-Bolt. He replied that his phone has difficulty keeping a Bluetooth connection so he is able to drive his car and talk hands free with his phone.

This is first thing I have heard of the Bluetooth issue and the T-bolt. Has anyone else had any similar issue?

Is Verizon planning on an update to fix this issue??

thanks ahead of time for your help.

Got it

Got the update late last night. So far, so good. I like the tabbed notification drawer, and performance is definitely snappier. Some folks have also said they think the screen is a bit sharper. I can't really tell on that. There have also been reports that the voicemail indicator is broken, but I use Youmail, so I can't say. Also reports that the front-facing camera doesn't work with GTalk, but I haven't tried it.

So far, I'm happy. I'll have to see how battery life is affected. Some folks have noticed a slight improvement using leaked builds.

Not Holding My Breath

I'll believe this when I see it. All the HTC phones have been getting attention except for the thunderbolt it seems. Still haven't been able to find a good case for extended battery. We will just sit back and see I guess.

Car Mode?

I have a vent clip and my phone fell when I made a turn. I reached for the phone and some how activated Car Mode. Now my home and menu keys below the screen don't light up when It's dark. Has anyone had this problem and if so how do I get my buttons to light up again. Thanks

July 8/9 update fixes connectivity

Before update:
I did not have reboot problems before; however, I did have connectivity problems where 4G and 3G connections stopped working randomly throughout the day. I rarely used the hotspot since my connectivity was not dependable.

After update:
Have not had connectivity problems. My Facebook app still loads and works after this July 8/9 update. There may be better radio management which could lead to better battery life.

I'll post again.

myTouch ?

The mytouch 3G, myTouch 3G slide, and the myTouch Fender are certainly not compatable with that service. Only the myTouch 4G is.
