I'm holding off on purchasing the Thunderbolt in these first batch of phones so that everyone else can become guinea pigs. I made the mistake with my Droid and bought it close to the release date. Supposedly, each batch of phones get better than the ones from the release date. A few issues with the Thunderbolt have popped up on these forums i see (reception issues,battery issues,build quality issues). Is there a good period to wait when mabye HTC will update newer batches of Thunderbolts that will have less issues? A week from now? A month? Couple of months?
