    So for laughs I went out to Verizon's website to do a comparison of the Tbolt against the other phones currently available. I'm eligible for an upgrade in June and am considering a different phone. Don't get me wrong, I love my TBolt but if there's something newer/better out there I'd like to consider it.

    It's no longer listed on their web site. :eek:

    On a side note, I may have a rooted Thunderbolt for sale in June. :D

    I think it's still available in stores. My local corporate verizon store had one on display yesterday with a $99.99 Price tag. I assume they still have some in the back, otherwise the display would seem kind of useless.

    I'm due for an upgrade in November. I'll have to see what Verizon has at that time for me to replace my TBolt. Hopefully they get something along the lines of the HTC One X or something even better.

    Hi,
    So what device are they replacing it with when you call and need a warranty replacement from customer service.
    Thanks

    I've read in the forums of folks getting the Rezound as the replacement phone.

    I would think you'd be getting a refurbished TBolt when doing a warrenty exchange. I can't see why they'd give out Rezounds. Unless they don't have enough stock of returned TBolts.

    Kinda says something if that's the case.
