    The HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon delivers solid performance with simultaneous voice and data over LTE and excellent performance. Instead of paying $249 for the phone over at the carrier you might want to check out this great deal Wirefly has.

    The HTC-made Verizon Thunderbolt has been plagued with random resets ever since users applied the May update and unfortunately all Verizon and the manufacturer could do was promise a fix to come and help users get rid of all the headaches. Weighing 74MB over-the-air, Verizon just pushed out the 1.70.605.0 update for the HTC Thunderbolt. No, it's not Gingerbread in case you ask! Still Froyo but it should definitely fix the random reset bug as it brings "reduced number of device power cycles and resets". Additionally you'll also get improved data connectivity, enhanced Call History view, ...

    HTC Thunderbolt owners have been suffering from a string of random resets since installing an update to their phones in early May. Sadly, we didn't see any kind of decisive action on Verizon or HTC's part, so Thunderbolt users have been forced to just grin and bear it thus far. A leaked Verizon memo made it clear that the carrier was aware of the issue and was prepping its support staff for how to handle inquires regarding it, but there was still no fix. Supposedly, an update to correct the reset issue was going to arrive in the second half of June. Then we started hearing talk about a ...

    When we reviewed the HTC Thunderbolt we told you that this superphone was coming with HTC's Sense UI 2.0 -- which was starting to show its age at the time. The EVO 3D, announced at CTIA, was shown running an "updated" version of Sense UI, which we later would learn to be version 3. Owners were hopeful their Sense would be updated, but HTC offered no help and later announced the Sense 3 wouldn't be coming to the Thunderbolt. Nothing gets developers more motivated than saying something won't be done -- or can't be. The latest version of the Das BAMF Gingerbread ROM includes the coveted Sense ...

    We heard that Verizon is planning to release a software update for the HTC Thunderbolt, in order to fix the reboot problems, sometime this month. We also heard that Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread might be coming to the smartphone on June 30, but nothing official nor confirmed at the moment. According to an HTC representative asked about the reboot problems, "HTC and Verizon are aware of this issue and an update will be released soon that will address the reboot issue, and bring the Gingerbread 2.3 upgrade on board, as well as several other enhancements". It will most probably be a single update ...

You can clearly see mentions of goodies like (finally?) video in Skype -- after the application has ...

    Last month's HTC Thunderbolt update brought the phone some newly-enhanced performance when connected over a 3G network, but like bedbugs hitching a ride on your suitcase, the update also introduced new glitches that caused the phones of some users to start spontaneously resetting. Thankfully, it now looks like Verizon has a plan in place to deal with the problem, culminating with the release of a new software update later this month. A leaked Verizon memo reveals the company's directions to its employees who have to deal with customer complaints about the "occasional device power ...

    Thought that Amazon's $130 was a good deal for the HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon LTE? After all, Verizon's still selling it direct for the premium smartphone price of $250. There's a chance you may be able to score an even better deal, letting you pick up the phone for a cool hundred. Verizon customers should check their inboxes, as certain subscribers are receiving notification that they're entitled to a loyalty discount in addition to extra savings through this private sale, knocking $150 off the phone's price tag. Just because you haven't received one of the emails doesn't mean you're ...

    HTC may be preparing a smaller or cheaper version of the HTC Thunderbolt codenamed Mecha S, according to the user agent profile pictured above. UAprofs, as they are more commonly known, are used to convey a device's properties for purposes of web page rendering and MMS exchange. Since the UAprof for the Mecha S (S=small? Thunderbolt was codenamed just Mecha) shows this model offering only a 320 x 480 HVGA screen resolution, it is likely to be either a physically smaller handset, or one which is the same size but lower-end. With HTC having a history of at least once following up a popular ...

    If you're an HTC Thunderbolt owner, you've probably been enjoying the free hotspot function that has been offered since the release of the device in March. Regularly priced at $20 per month for 2GB of data transfer, the hotspot app lets you share your connection with up to eight devices when over LTE (or three devices when over 3G), which is very useful when you're traveling or need WiFi for your tablet or laptop. Verizon has graciously extended the free hotspot offer until June 15. Source: Twitter Via: Droid-Life

    Yesterday's Verizon Thunderbolt update looked like a pretty sweet deal at first; users reported definitely noticing the improved 3G performance, and we already had a rooted version of the update available by yesterday evening. While seemingly a success, the update may not be all good news, as we're seeing reports now of users whose smartphones are much more prone to random resets following installation of the update. Verizon abruptly changed its mind about sending out the update originally, putting in some more time to test it before release. Sadly, it looks like it may have still missed ...
