HTC And Verizon Working on Fix for HTC ThunderBolt Random Reboots

In a bit of bad news, a few days ago, it became apparent that some HTC ThunderBolt owners were dealing with random reboot issues after installing an update for the device. It looks like those cloudy skies are clearing up though as Verizon has confirmed that it and HTC are working on a solution to the problem.

Verizon began rolling out an update to the HTC ThunderBolt on May 12th that brought some awesome stuff along with it including better 3G connectivity (for some people at least) among other things.

Yet, it also apparently brought along a reboot issue that is seeing ThunderBolt’s reboot at random, without provocation.

No one here at GBM with a ThunderBolt is experiencing the issue but judging from the amount of people complaining about this issue, it seems to be a little more widespread than we initially thought.


Luckily, it looks like a fix for it could be on the way as Verizon has told Android Central that it is working alongside  HTC in an attempt to figure out a solution for the issue.


Sadly, no word on how long it’s going to take for them to get something rolled out to owners experiencing this issue but let’s hope it’s sooner rather than later.
