Looks like AT&T isn't the only carrier patching cellular connectivity issues
this month -- a Verizon document suggests that we'll be getting some brand new radio firmware for the beleaguered HTC Thunderbolt. The handset not only fell victim to Verizon's LTE outage
but has had 3G data
and CDMA / LTE cycling issues
since day one, so we're hoping this latest baseband will bring at least a modicum of relief for affected speed demons across the country. What we don't know is when this patch might show up -- we thought the Xoom's security update
would be imminent, but those documents were unceremoniously pulled.
