I could not sit by and not chime in on this. I can NOT believe this thread was locked/closed, and the responses that were given. I also returned the Thunderbolt for some of the same reasons as the person that posted that thread. And others have as well based on all of my reading of the post on this and other forums discussing the Thunderbolt. Has this suddenly turned into a "we only want people that worship the Thunderbolt" forum ??? It seems to me that 60-70% or more of the post on this forum are people having issues of some sort or another with this phone. Obviously it would seem that some people are having very few to no issues at all with this phone while others are having some or multiple issues. Perhaps there is/was a bad batch of components of some sort, or perhaps the quality control department is asleep at the wheel, or perhaps this phone was rushed out too quickly before all of the bugs were worked out. Either way, it can't be denied that a considerable amount of people are having a considerable amount of issues with this phone. I am not unrealistic, I am well aware that with any product there will be some defective units. However, from my own personal experience of going through 3 Thunderbolts before I decided enough was enough, and from the hours and hours of reading I have done of other peoples experience with this particular phone, and from a friend that had the phone and also returned it for similar issues, ...there is obviously a quality control issue, that can NOT be denied/overlooked. I think it is great that some of you are not having any issues with this phone and are loving it. I have said in other post that 'if' the phone did everything it was meant to do without having glitches, than it would be a great phone. However, for you people to have an overall attitude that the people that are having issues with this phone are just being anal, or unrealistic, or whatever is ridiculous. To expect that people paying $250+ for this phone should not expect it to work CORRECTLY is an attitude that I have a lot of trouble understanding, especially in a forum (I thought) was designed to share thoughts, ideas, raves and rants about this phone, good or bad. Perhaps instead of 'accepting' that these phones 'will' have issues and NOT work perfectly, if everyone that had 'any' problem returned it, not accepting a bad product for good hard earned money, than, perhaps the quality control would tighten up and there would be much less defective units for all of us. All of you people accepting the 'issues' with this or any phone/product, just give the manufacture the 'signal' that they can use 'you' for there quality control department. I for one, and I seem to be in the minority in this forum, actually expect to have a properly working product for my money. Don't you ? These post also basically act as 'reviews' for people deciding if they want to purchase this phone or not. Shutting down a thread, because someone had multiple issues and was understandably upset about it I believe is a disservice to what I thought this forum was supposed to be for.
