    You're looking at a new Thunderbolt owner over here! I actually had no intention of upgrading, but with all the talk about these new "tiered data plans" I had to upgrade to 4G LTE early so I could get grandfathered in.

    anyway, this is really an amazing phone. It amazes me everything that this phone can do that my original Motorola Droid couldn't... I can multi-task for REAL now. I never worry that my web browser windows are going to shut down on me, or that my background apps will close randomly. This thing just works the way Android should.

    Giving up the keyboard was worth it, I think. I am actually looking into a Jorno keyboard for my T-Bolt... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjWlr4FBm7I (I've confirmed with them that it is compatible)

    The downsides of this device? About twice I've had the phone go to sleep and not come back. Had to pull the battery to get it to restart. I also have experienced some of the random rebooting that has been described. However this is very rare, and didn't really impact me at all. My battery life is pretty horrendous with this phone too. I'm getting about 5.5 hours to a charge, and that's on a GOOD day. If I turn syncing, gps, screen, etc all off... I get about 7 hours a day. This phone will die on you in the middle of the day, so I've kinda had to adjust my life around that. I'm thinking I may get an extended battery at this rate.

    Oh I do. I've got 2 chargers at home. 1 in the car, and one stashed in my sister's car.
