    I just restarted my device and realized the thunder at startup actually sounds more like a toilet bowel than thunder. From now on I will refer to my tb as the toilet bowel rather than thunderbolt....


    Ps I rule.

    Good night.

    Not here. I'm running BAMF 1.6.1 (haven't had time or desire to flash anything newer). My battery life is pretty good clocked at 1.5GHz and its really stable.

    But I've seen a few post here that bother me. Just because someone has problems...doesn't mean everyone is (and vice versa). And just because a fix action works for some people doesn't mean it is a universal fix.

    Let's not discount individuals experiences because they have not been your experiences. I saw this mentality with the battery life threads when the phone first launched.

    If you are experiencing reboots and fixed it...please, post your fix so others can try it. But don't demand others do so before they can post on the subject.

    i think the worst part about the reboots is that everytime it reboots, i lose about 10% battery and my phones been doing it a lot lately :/

    When I called just now for my 4th replacement I told them about the battery dropping fast when rebooting and they sold me an extended for half off.

    I still haven't experienced any reboots. I must be the only one.

    Nope, I've never had a reboot either that I know of. I'm not rooted and I installed the OTA. My GPS works great and I seldom drop my 4G connection. I know how you feel though. I'm starting to feel kinda' lonely.

    I have had an occasional hiccup that I've never seen mentioned. I had one alarm reminder start alarming that was turned off and just now I left my desk and when I came back I had a message on the screen to tap the screen to turn on the camera. I have no idea where that came from because I haven't touched my TBolt since I tethered my laptop to it and I've never seen that message before. I wonder if it was referring to the front facing camera that I've never had on. I just tried turning on my rear camera and got a message that my camera flash won't work if the Hotspot is on. Learning something new every day.

    At least it isn't boring like my last phone was. :)

    It really is random. I didn't have any in the beginning after the update, but the past week they've gotten worse and worse, during phone calls, etc. If they are working to push out a patch and it's going to be sooner than later (I know, I know, "soon.") I really don't want to get a replacement only to have a fix a few days later.

    The reboot issue had begun to get out of control for me too, but suddenly the issue has just stopped. The last time my phone rebooted was probably about 48 hours ago now, whereas before that it was happening a good 3 or 4 times a day. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not aware of anything I've done differently, so I'm wondering if this is luck, or if there's some silent update that was done (if that's even possible).

    You know...I'm not trying discount anyone's rebooting issues and I know that VZW and HTC have confirmed the issue...but it sounds like an app conflict issue. I know that VZW tested this OTA because they have a history if doing so (which is why OTAs take so long to get released).

    I just hope you guys and gals get a fix soon. I haven't had an issue with rebooting but I'd be pissed if I had to deal with that daily...

    Was getting reboots as well, got a replacement coming on Tuesday and had my current TB factory reset. The Verizon rep said the reboot were caused be juice defender and my task killer. I said I didn't care and wanted a replacement but since the reset on Thursday I havent had a reboot and only re-downloaded phandroid and the amazon app store. Has anyone had reboots without juice defender or task killer installed?

    Rodrir, I can say I had neither of those installed on my device at any point, and that my reboot issue only began after the software update was pushed out. I have been uninstalling some apps that I wasn't using lately though, so perhaps it is app related.

    That's what I figured. it just seemed like the rep needed some reason to justify the reboots.

    Just switched to the Droid Charge because of these reboots. I know how bad it can be. In fact it caused some issues at my work with my employer during a conference call.

    I loved my tb but reboots and battery issues are un acceptable.

    Did you just bite bullet and pay the high $ amount to switch or did Verizon help you out?

    So you complained enough and they works out a deal with you? Did you go through the store or corporate customer service? I only ask because ive had about enough of this. I need my device to be reliable....I work in the medical industry and its critical I'm not getting cut off while on the phone trying to explain a procedure or answer implant questions.

    Does anyone else remember this? Was it talking about a new, intended behavior or was it just referring to the reboot performed during the update procedure?

    I'm sure it was just talking about rebooting during the update process. But that's an ironic observation.
