HTC Thunderbolt Rebooting Problem Update Coming Soon

For quite a while now some owners of the HTC Thunderbolt have been experiencing random rebooting problems with the 4G enabled Verizon smartphone, but hopefully Verizon will have a fix for that problem in the not too distant future and will release an update to the Android device.

According to the guys over at Phone Arena, the guys over at Android Central have managed to get hold of a Verizon internal document, and although apparently the carrier has been unable to come up with a short term solution, a fix is on the way to those suffering Thunderbolt owners.

Apparently if owners are experiencing severe issues with their Android handset then if they visit Verizon a rep will swap the handset for a CLNR, “Certified Like New Replacement,” however if the issue isn’t too bad then the owner can hang on for the update that will fix the problem.

The update to fix the issue is apparently scheduled for the second half of June, so not really too long to wait, of course if you simply don’t want to wait you can always take advantage of that CLNR replacement offer.

So how are you getting along with your HTC Thunderbolt, are you going to wait for the update or will you be hitting Verizon for that replacement?

    The day I bought my TBolt the update came out so I have been experiencing reboots on a daily basis since then. I refuse to get a “like new” replacement. I expect a fix for this.

    I didn’t update. Im still on stock rooted radio with rom and no reboots at all. I more than likely won’t even update to the next update until others in the forum community does and orovides feedback. Had my TB since day 1 when i bought it out of contract. So i’ll make own adjustments with radios and kernels!

    I guess I am one of the lucky one, my Thunderbolt doesn’t reboot, but if I leave it in my holster long enough, it will automatically turn itself off. So when I go to use it, I have to turn it back on, and it is not the fast 4G phone when it come to starting up back up. One good thing for me, the update did give me better and more 4G connections.

    Has anyone else experienced this or is this what they are calling a reboot? I also refuse to get a “like new” replacement. I expect a fix for this. Why pay good money for a band new phone only to have it replaced with a ‘like new’. Exactly what is ‘like new’. It’s either new or it isn’t.

    I’m tempted to replace Verizon if they can’t put out product better than what they’ve done with this Thunderbolt…

    I have to agree with some of these other comments. I mean come on, “Like new”…. I did not pay for a “Like new” phone in the store. This is pure bull crap and Verizon has absolutely terrible customer service. To be as big a company as they are and cant give me a new phone. They are hyping up this so called update fix coming soon, well it better fix it or AT&T here I come………..
