    After my Samsung Fascinate got stolen, I went with the iPhone. I'm kinda starting to miss the Android platform though; there are just a few things about iOS that annoy me. Of course, being in a 4G area, the TB is my main Android contender. But the size freaks me out. It seems so much bigger than the Fascinate did, even though I guess it really isn't. Just wondering if any ladies have the TB and what your thoughts are. Thanks! :)

    I'm no lady, but I did hear over on XDA that some wives and gf have them and love them. I'm in touch with my feminine side so maybe I can help out a little here. The size is larger for sure, but you get used to it. As a matter of fact once you use it for a couple of days and then look back at your old phone, it's difficult to go back. But it does take a few days to get used to it.

    Testost back on...

    I carry a Droid X and thought I would not get use to the size but since having it I've gotten spoiled. I can't seem to go back to a smaller screen and now I have the TB only thing it is heavier than my Droid X but I don't mind it.

    While I was waiting to get my TB at Verizon, I was talking to a MILF who was exchanging hers for another one. She said she liked the phone.

    I'll let you know what my girlie wife thinks of it. She is getting hers today and doesn't particularly like big phones. She has a Palm right now and it is so small.

    But hey, if she could get used to a 6 foot 8 inch husband, she can get use to a bigger phone. Hopefully. Cause if not, both our phones go back and I'm back on ATT.

    I'm a lady with the bolt ;) My opinions change from day to day .. Overall I'd say I like the phone but there are a few details here and there that bug me. The size is a bit of an adjustment.. definitely doesn't fit in my clutch! Then again, I wouldn't base my opinion of the phone simply on size. You can get used to it. I would definitely prefer an android phone over the iphone however.

    I am also a lady (well, that may be questionable ;-) but I am definitely ALL woman).
    The size doesn't bother me at all.

    I picked up two on Thursday one for me and my wife. She went from a dumbphone so she loves it. She is now an addict and played Angry birds all weekend, had to get an extention cord so she could play while it was charging. It was soooo cute.

    The size does not bother her and she has less problems than I do as she always has a purse.

    Jeepers, there are so many lines being posted here that are ripe for jokes via double entendre, but I will be respectful to the ladies :)

    Haha, maybe I should've titled it "Any FEMALES with the 'Bolt?" I'm not so sure I'd qualify as a lady either! :D


    Thanks everyone...I'm getting up the nerve to call the Verizons closest to me to see who has it in stock. I'm not sure why I'm debating this so much, it's not like I don't have 2 weeks to try it out! I guess it's that I'm worried that if I do end up returning it they won't reset my upgrade date properly and I'll have to go a round or 3 getting it fixed...wouldn't be the first time.

    I'm a lady with a T-Bolt, and I absolutely love it! It does weigh a bit more than my X or Incredible, but it doesn't really bother me. I had the X and it was just too tall. It would flip right out of the cell pocket in my purse. The Bolt fits nicely. :)

    Geez, wow, clearly I've gotten used to the smaller size of my iPhone huh?! The Fascinate actually looks a teensy hair longer!

    Female here...sometimes a lady, depends on the time of day. The size of the TB does not bother me at all. To be honest, the only thing that really is bugging me is the quality of pictures taken with the camera. I came from a Blackberry Storm 2 which took really great pictures and I came to rely on my BB for pics, the TB camera so far has not proven to provide really great quality pics, but it is a phone, not a camera. So, I will just have to get back in the habit of keeping my camera handy.

    From all my experiences, it will cost you $35 restocking and your upgrade will be reset. Confirm it if you wish with VZW on the phone and make sure they note it in your account. You should have no problem returning it, but you won't.

    Have you tried any of the camera apps in the market? I always get great shots with the default camera, but I know there are some great apps out there.
