Summary: tube to buy the battery and the truth I'm wrong, it was a mistake to buy it because it was believed gsm. this is sim cdma and input you have is only for 4g lte. here in my country the cdma is not used. one cdma in my country is a man disguised as a woman. BUT MADE FOR YOU LIKE I JUST COLORS YOU RECOMMEND THIS PHONE A FRIEND LIKE THAT TECHNOLOGY CDMA.
Summary: The Thunderbolt works well - but I am not a fan of Verizon. The battery was not very good, but I have an extended battery that works excellent. make sure to get the app killer though - those apps suck all the life out of batteries.
Summary: I bought this to get 4G data speed without giving up my unlimited data plan and without paying full price for a new phone. This phone works great and is easy to use if you've had an Android phone before. A few things to know before you buy: unlike most 3G Verizon phones, this and all 4G phones require a sim card, which does not come with the phone. My local Verizon store installed one and activated the phone for me for free, so this was not a big deal.
Excerpt: This phone would have been great for the average user but the lack of support on the part of HTC and Verizon Wireless has plagued this phone. My experience with this phone was decent because I was rooted and unlocked, which allows me to use custom ROMs, etc.
Summary: Bought this phone after my droid3 was destroyed. It works rather well and is fast enough for me, I'm sure the ICS upgrade helped as well. The screen is large and responsive, colours are nice as well. Phone call quality is good and conversations clear, messaging is a breeze. The battery life was sub par, but I have found that it is the same for most smart phones, adjust the settings, turn off data and it gets a little better.
Excellent user interface! Enjoyable, easy-to-use, just lags a little!

Summary: I bought this phone because I sent mine through the wash. I had a Droid Bionic, and in comparison the Thunderbolt has a better user interface! There are a lot of practical and fun features, such as the clock with the weather, and you can click on it to see a 4 day forecast, or the lock screen option that scrolls through a picture album for you with a nice presentation. It's heavy, but I don't mind. Its battery life is decent.
Summary: It's a nice phone and works well. The screen size is nice and large which makes texting easy. Like the set-up of the screen and the ease of finding apps, settings, etc. It has good features on it. The battery life could be better.
Excerpt: I loved this phone when I first got it two years ago, but now it is just outdated and isn't up to par with all of the phones out there on the market today. Some apps close unexpectedly, the 4G LTE is throttled and slow, and even though I'm getting 4 bars of 3G CDMA or 4G LTE coverage, I sometimes still can't access the internet. The camera's autofocus doesn't always work correctly.
Good performance, 4G, and value, but low battery life. 4/5

Summary: I was looking for something to replace my old BlackBerry Storm for about 14 months until I could renew my contract with Verizon and upgrade to a newer phone. I liked the way BlackBerry handled e-mail, but just about everything else was sub-par. After deciding to go with an Android phone, I was looking for something fairly cheap with 4G. My brother recommended the Thunderbolt, which he had received as a work phone, and generally liked.
