    I think it's a Sprint HTC EVO with rounded corners

      @btrombley
      Its the same phone except it has the newer snapdragon version processor and has verizon bloat instead of sprints. The lte 4G speed is better then sprints but the evo is stil sexier and slightly better.I have my Evo on boost so started at $50 unlimited everything plan butr now Im on unlimited with shrinkage I pay $40 a month right now with no contract. Good luck getting that or double that price on verizon though. Its still nice evo copy.

      making the whole page a Verizon ad borders on the ridiculous OK. I couldn't scan the article because anytime my mouse wanders an ad pops-up. I don't mind the ads they pay bills but keep'em in the corral please.

    Based on the fact that tethering and normal use wipes the battery out in 2-3 hours it better let you work fast because you sure can't expect it to work long.

      You know it charges while tehering to a laptop right?

    I went to a restaurant about 12 miles from Home - used the GPS on the Thunderbolt -- used it about 1/2 way back and the battery was just about done --- returned the phone to Verizon the next day -- will wait for a better 4G phone

      Had a similar problem with my Motorola phone. Seams that these new batteries need some breaking in time. When I first got my phone battery lasted maybe 20 hrs, got a new battery, same thing. After about 10 days the battery lasted 7 days with heavy use. Why????
