Verizon has re-started pushing out the Android update to the Thunderbolt after fixing the issue which handset owners started complaining about when the original update started to trickle out a few weeks back. Verizon will be pushing out the Android 2.3 update to phones is different waves so that they can watch for any issues along the way.
The HTC Thunderbolt has been plagues with bugs and poor battery life since its launch and it seem like consumers have not been pleased with the way HTC and Verizon have managed the update process for the device. We hope the new update fixes a lot of the issues that the Thunderbolt had and can help restore consumer confidence in Verizon’s first 4G LTE handset.
