Thunderbolt or EVO
1)Cost is really no issue as my employer will be paying for it, and has told me to get the phone that I think is best.
2) both Verizon and Sprint's network coverage is the same in my area.
I'm placing this post in both forums and will take all info to heart.
Thunderbolt HAS PROBLEMS HANDING OFF from 4g to 3g
BEWARE had to return my thunderbolt first for a speaker phone echo and then again 2 days later since if i was not in a 4G area it would not hand off to 3G.
Verizon knows of the issue and says they are working on it but why should we be beta testers for a new phone. They said it was new technology and with that comes problems but the 4G LTE modem came out in November and they still have issues. My advice wait till they work out the bugs!!

More issues as they come.
credit cards? (on the mat)...
trade Incredible for thunderbolt?

With Verizon's own admitted plans to TIER data plans soon, that's not a comfortable thought. Forced overage anyone? Not to mention that means the phone is always going to be looking for a 4G network. Even more battery gone.
And can someone tell me why I have to pay $249 for it?
I had hig...
Anyway to get Droid X widgets on this thing?
I found a droid x system dump, downloaded it and tried to load these widgets on it manually (yes, I checked the unknown sources box) and it just comes up "application not installed".
Does anyone know of a way to do this?
May be I'm just so use to the X that this bugs me and time would resolve, but I doubt it. The news widget and the calendar widgets are both ...
Two (easy) Thunderbolt Questions
2. Again with the iPhone comparison - the battery on my iphone needs to be charged twice a day, I think I am only a moderate user. How does the battery fair on the T-Bolt.
The ThunderBolt is still very new but so far I really like it. MUCH less buggy than my Incredible and fast. Still lookin for a 4G signal tho. And, as expected with just about any HTC the battery life is TERRIBLE!
My biggest question is:
charge port + kickstand
