Summary: Its always saying default lock screen as failed or the homescreen has failed. The middle part of my keyboard no longer works, it worked for about a week. I now have to use the speech to text mode. I cant get to my app list had to add everything to my home screens to get to them.
Take a real look at this phone! The bad reviews out there are completely wrong - and IMHO are there to get you to upgrade with $

Summary: Received the HTC ThunderBolt - brand new in the box. After hearing bad reviews on this phone I got a little concerned. However after I set up the device and got it added to my TracFone account, with a BYOP sim kit; I was tickled pretty.
Summary: I purchased this phone as a replacement phone for my Samsung Galaxy s4 when it broke. This is the worst phone I've ever used in my life. I was waiting 20-30 second for each app to load between opening the app and each selection made in the app.
Summary: well this will be my first ever review and im only compelled to write it because i dont want someone else getting screwed like i did. If your looking for a good phone then i recommend not purchasing this phone.
Summary: I bought four of these phones and they are horrible. They are slow, have chinese on some apps instead of english and even though I had them activated at the verizon store, they are saying the sim card is not working.
