Good, maybe I can get more than 100 bucks for this thing with a working gingerbread. I'm extremely frustrated beyond words with this phones performance overall. It amazes me that HTC can sleep at night knowing how much they hyped up a phone that has so many issues. I don't blame Verizon entirely. They can't write Android patches, but they can crank up the heat on the manufacturer to fix a product quickly or at least alter the return policy for this phone. Maybe Verizon could offer another upgrade with a buy back program. I'm sure I'm dreaming all this right now.
I read an article today on a reputable site today. It says its giving the Worst Phone of the Year award to the HTC Thunderbolt due the the restart bug, poor battery life, numerous bugs, and lack of timely software updates. That article made me feel awesome.
Nope, I'm not sleeping.

I wrote VZW and HTC a nice email on this phone's history and the wish for some way to rectify the whole situation. I'm over it now. Well not really but sorry for the rant earlier.
It's out of my system now :smileywink:

I love it....  "soon"  (no diss on you Wildman) - Verizon and HTC should copyright the word "soon" since they use it so much.  Too bad I can't use it when they ask for my monthly payment........

I totally agree, the word is a common phrase lately....  But soon is better than never in my opinion..

Does anyone have a date HTC is past thinking about the thunderbolt and gingerbread. There onto ics. They tweeted HTC was the fastest to update phones. Lol. I wish the update was here I want it to have dock features like other phones have. I'm a simple person.
