What is that??

This is gonna sound stupid but can anyone tell me what those 2 tiny holes above the dual LED flash on the back of the Thunderbolt are? I tried looking at the instruction manual but they are not mentioned and I tried looking at several on line Video reviews and everyone always ignores them. Can someone satisfy my curiosity please??
Thanx!!

This site has present and future 4g sites for anyone that hasn't seen it yet.

I hope I typed it correctly. It won't let me copy/past.

working out the bugs?

My news keeps trying to update. And never stops trying but never updates either. Finally I cleared the data, force stoped it, and removed it.

And I've run across several Verizon app's that won't function. Neither will the Verizon mobile version.

I'm assuming someone is working on these. I've noticed the gps is really slow, if I try to check in on fb or something. That might be a fb thing though. Maybe it will all be fixed with the gingerbread upgrade?

Anyone else have issue's? Just curious. Really love my phone overall.

NFL MOBILE?????

this is a piece of crap to me. i could have stayed with my droid incredible for all that and waited til the incredible 2 comes wont which is but the same as this phone but minus the 4g. i can't even get on myverizon. thats one thing that vzw should have had working if anything else doesn't. doesn't even look like many people are buying it either so it may be on sale soon. i still like the phone but they could have did better then this.

It's a Damn Shame

Its a shame that the only way I can get any kind of decent battery life is to turn off the 4G Lte. Since i have done that I have just about doubled my battery life but then what's the point of having a 4g phone if i cant use the freakin 4g?

i've heard it before, but here's WHY thunderbolt trums iphone4

I understand that when the original iPhone was released, it was a revolutionary device. but since then, other platforms began to catch up. the one that stands out about all others is the android platform. i've seen many people ask for a true comparison between apple and android, so here ya go: HTC Thunderbolt vs Apple iPhone 4

thunderbolt is 4g, iphone is 3g

thunderbolt supports simultaneous voice/data (including mms during active call), iphone does not

thunderbolt has better/faster processor

thunderbolt has flashlight (before app download)

thunderbolt has available data tethering, iphone does not

thunderbolt has expandable external memory, iphone does not

thunderbolt has fm radio, iphone does not

thunderbolt has 8+ m...

Notification sounds

Can you set different notification sounds for incoming texts messages for different people? I have the incredible and you can only set one for all incoming text messages..What I mean is one like for my daughter and Son..So I know who's texting before I look at it..

a couple qiestions.

Is there an easier way to get to contacts? I've been going to phone, then touching the little card next to the name. Is there no contact icon? Surely I'm not over looking an entire icon?

And how do I create a new folder on the SD card? I would like to organize my picture's.

Ordering This phone tomorrow.... Probally

Daughter's phone is turning it's self off & on. No insurance on her's. But I can do an early upgrade. Then transfer my old phone to her.

No stores in our area so I'm going on user reviews.

Activation is hard? Something to do with sim card?

Sms text does not include phone number? True or not? Ive read these on differant forums, but not here.

My auto pay is tomorrow. Will they let me order and put on next bill?

199.99 with 2 yr contract? Ill have to do early upgrade. Wave the early upgrade fee?

I tried store locator. It gave mea place in Indiana. I'm in central Illinois. What's up with that?

4G to 3G

I just purchased the HTC Thunderbolt yesterday. How I change 4G to 3G? I was told to do that in order to save batter power. Also I'm traveling so I know that area does not have 4G. Thanks!
