Ever since the TB was release there has yet to be an app that can be compatible with the TB. First of all the My Verizon. why havent they released a fix for this. This should be the main app that all Verizon phones should be able to use. Next is other apps being release that only are made for certain phones at start. The TB has never been on the list at first. Just other phones. I believe they failed on this phone at launch which is one reason Verizon is now saying the Samsung is the first Droid phone to take on the 4G LTE. the TB is a droid phone too. Its a great phone, phone they just need to push out these updates and get the ball rolling.
I just got the thunderbolt and I am unable to find the answer to two questions for now. #1 when I turn the phone on you get the thunderbolt sound which wakes others. Can that be changed. # 2. With the iPhone or I touch u could take a picture of the screen. Can u do that with this phone? Any help would be appreciated.
After the S/W update was release my phone just constantly powers off and on. It happens thru-out the day. even when I'm on calls. I notice that my battery does not stay firmly fit in the battery slot, but I'm not sure if its that or just the S/W because my phone be just sitting still and it happens. Is anyone else having this same problem?
over in the "Update to Help Smooth Out Thunderbolt Data Issues" discussion:
I already returned my Thunderbolt due to GPS issues. I use the GPS a lot, and for me, the 2200 meter accuracy was simply unacceptable. The accuracy would improve if Wifi radio was turned on, but the concept of having Wifi on to improve GPS reception and precision is ridiculous. Not to mention that battery would get drained in only half a day. And of course, Froyo is slow, buggy, and bloated.
I read on a different forum that Verizon's sending out an upgrade for TB. Helping with connection issues, sms... Ect. But I haven't gotten one. Has any one? I read a post, again on a different forum, that some people have gone to Verizon stores to get this upgrade. I have no stores in my area. And am not looking to spend 4.20$ a gal of gas to go on a hour drive one way to get this upgrade.
