    I currently have a DInc, but have put a pre-order in at my local BB for a TB. I love my DInc, but one of the main reasons I want to upgrade is that I want a phone that will be able to have voice and data at the same time. The other reason is that I am so tired of getting that damn "low disk space" error. I know from reading the forums that this seems to be a problem that only exists on the DInc. The question I have, because I am not a "specie", is if, based on the specs of the TB vs. the DInc, does anyone think the TB will have the same issues.

    From what I know it comes with 8 gb of internal memory, with a preinstalled 32gb micro sd card for 40 gb total

    I have plenty of storage space on my phone, so I don't think the issue lies there, if I understand what I have read about the "low disk space" alert. I currently have I my phone memory 541mb of the total 748mb free, 5.74gb of the 6.6th of the internal phone storage, and 11.53 gb of the 14.83 gb available on my sd card. I'm wondering if it lies with the phone memory area.

    Maybe something is sucking up your ram? You should turn your phone off at least once a week

    I do that, I also delete attachments from the threads in my messenger app, which I dislike doing, and clear cache from my applications.

    As someone stated it has 8gb internal NAND and has 32gb microSDHC. Even with how storage world works with SI prefix over Binary prefix you will still have largest natural system with storage space. Even if NAND is using ef mode as dual layer data stripping even then the NAND will be still 4GB far as RAM goes its still one of the highest in smartphone as we have 768mb ddr.

    I'm fairly sure you have to be in a 4G area to use voice and data at the same time. Data uses 4G and voice the other band(s).

    Just something you may want to make sure of if that is one of your main reasons.

    Thank-you, I'm in Baltimore, so I'm good to go with 4G.

    Supposedly the Thunderbolt will be able to do voice and data over 3g. I'm guessing Voice over Rev A.
