Issues after recent update

I know three people that have the Thunderbolt on Verizon and all three of us are having the same problem following the the update to 2.11.605.19710RD.  Mine occured on 5/17/2012 at 12:31pm.  The update was forced, I noticed my phone automatically rebooted and when it came up it gave me a message stating it had been updated.

   Following the update, the phone will intermittently get very warm and drain the batter very quickly.  I am running an extended life battery (purchased through verizon store) and the other two people I know having the issue are running standard batteries.  If i notice the phone is running warm, I can restart the phone and the condition temporarily goes away until it returns again. 

   I can see no rhyme or reason for when it returns.  I am a standard user so I do not hack the phone or do anything other than load aps (cautiously) from Market.  My phone would get easily two days on a charge.  (I turn off mobile data when not using it)

Curious to see if anyone else is having this problem and if anyone from verizon can help me.


Re: Issues after recent update

I have the same issue.  Some app is downloading a large amount of data though the 'Dialer' app.

See: Menu / Settings / About Phone / Battery / Battery Use

Touch Dialer and for me, this morning only, it has sent 1/2 Mb and received 3 Mb of data. 

Questions for Verizon:  What app(s) are using this approach?  Why, I am assuming because this method of data download is not interruptable by a user?  How do we turn this off to get our battery life back?

This needs to be looked into by Verizon!!

mine also lost all the indivedual ring tones and when i change them back when the phone shuts off it changes them again
