HTC Thunderbolt runs into more 4G connectivity problemsThe HTC Thunderbolt, while on paper is one of the superior Android-powered phones out there in the market, isn’t too hot when you actually take it out for a real-world spin. After all, there are niggling issues with its surprisingly short battery life – a huge minus in anybody’s books for sure. Now, it seems that another blot is added to the Thunderbolt’s track record as users are reporting issues concerning Verizon’s 4G network as the LTE capable Android-powered phone tends to lose its data connection frequently, reconnecting in around five to 10 seconds after that. This cycle will go on and on whenever there is a 4G connection in the vicinity, which makes one want to tear his/her hair out at times. Not only that, it doesn’t help that HTC decided to throw in an official method of turning off 4G at will, so you might want to check out whether there are third-party apps that might just offer a fix. Verizon has acknowledged the problem and claims that they will be rolling out a software fix soon, but that’s a relative word, isn’t it?
