DS has been saving/looking, and looking/saving for almost 2 years now...and the only thing he is sure of is hoping to get 4G. The size of the Thunderbolt is a bummer, and the upcoming Bionic is the same. Given that info he is thinking he will have to consider the larger size, but is not a fan of getting the first model of anything, at least not until the bugs are worked out. So , since the phone has only been out since 3/17...not a lot of feedback yet. We are staying Verizon as it has the best reception for us with our DD at school. So, anyone have any experiences or info on the Thunderbolt? Also, the insurance plan/replacement deductible is more affordable and better coverage than the IPhone which for a 16 year old, is huge.
