I currently have an HTC Inspire 4G with ATT. The phone is GREAT! I have never had a single problem with it. I have no problem with the batterly life - or lack thereof - as this is a powerful phone and I use it as much as my computer. ATT has TERRIBLE service in my area. I drop calls everywhere and now can no longer use my phone in my home. The rep at ATT admited they have several towers down in my area with no date as to when they will be up and running again. I can no longer afford to miss business calls so I have to switch to Verizon as their service is very strong in my area. I was hoping the Thunderbolt would be like the Inspire and hopefully better since it is a newer phone. I am concerned because I have read so many negative reviews and remarks about this phone. People are on their 4th and 5th replacement???? Is this a bad phone like the HTC Aria and will it soon be deleted from the massive HTC line up? Any thoughts and opinions are most welcome as I am ready to make the switch to Verizon but now do not know what phone to choose.
