    So I've owned the Thunderbolt for over a year now, pretty much got it a couple weeks after it's release. It's a good phone..nothing crazy special...I was most interested in it because of it's rooting capabilities..and down the road I found out I could emulate PSx on it quite easily..hello Final Fantasy on work downtime..

    Anyhow, my 3g/4g connectivity has always sucked..from day ****ing one. I've gotten several free months as consequence and I am also on my 4th replacement. With enough stink being raised Verizon offered me a couple other phones: The Motorola Bionic, Samsung Charge and of course..another Thunderbolt.

    I know the Charge is pretty much out of the question, so this discussion is more than likely going to be about the Bionic versus the Thunderbolt.

    I've done plenty of reading on the Bionic and I am very interested in it...only one thing is holding me back..the interface.

    I've read Motoblur is far less appealing than the Sense. This is my main purpose, can anyone comment on the two? Aside from the Interface, I'm open to any thoughts about the Bionic in general.

    If you have an upgrade verizon is selling the razr for $99 , free shipping.
    Which is better than both of them by far. Also motoblur on the razr isn't all that bad.

    It's not an upgrade, they are just swapping it out.

    i've had the bionic since release day and couldn't be happier, i've had no problems. i previously had an eris and reception on it was less than desireable to say the least. reception, both data and call, on the bionic is great. and i like this version of motoblur much better than sense.

    I was given the Bionic for a work phone, as well as about 4 other employees. We all hate it, and we all have the same issues. It locks up all the time, shuts down unexpectedly and freezes in the middle of calls. I have had to do 2 resets and lose all info just to have it keep happening. I have to pull the battery at least once a day, at least I will charge it, lay it on the night stand, and in the moring it has just shut off and will not turn back on until the battery is pulled.....daily. Every one of my coworkers have the same exact issue. Even the verizon rep who helped me when I got the galaxu nexus said "yeah" we get nothing but complaints about that phone". I am happy for those who have no issues, but for me and the rest of my staff.....ISSUES!!!
