Smile Loving my new T-bolt

I just got my new T-Bolt yesterday and I have to say, I'm loving it. I'm not loving the battery life but my extended battery is on the way. I'll have that tomorrow.

I had a Touch Pro 2 before this and they are simply leaps and bounds apart. I was, at first, torn between this and the Samsung Charge but then saw that this phone has the Charge beat in almost every category but battery life and screen quality. Performance seems better on this. There's more storage and more upgradeability for it. It has more RAM and I sincerely prefer the Sense interface to TouchWiz.

Okay, so the rose-colored glasses haven't come off yet, clearly. But still, I'm loving this phone.

Re: Loving my new T-bolt

It's a great phone... My coworker just got one too... Regarding the battery... There are several things you can do to conserve battery... I have the EVO and was able to squeese several hours out of the standard battery simply by making a few easy adjustments.

Re: Loving my new T-bolt

I LOVE Mine too!! I've had it for about a month, now. I only get 3G in Baytown, so I use an app to keep my phone from constantly trying to get 4G. My battery usually lasts all day. Unless I'm abusing my addiction to Angry Birds, that is.

What app do you use to disable 4G? I'm away this weekend and I don't think they have 4G service here.

LTE inoff is the name of the app. Free and downloadable through the Market. Please read the instructions on how it works.

Check out other geekers experience after using the app.
