LTE Switch For HTC Thunderbolt
Every Thunderbolt owner knows how incredibly fast the battery on the new device dies when on an LTE connection, and with no easy way to turn off this feature, a new developer just released an app for it. The good guys over at TeamAndIRC just pushed out an application that gives you a simple way to toggle your LTE on an off when you need it. This isnít a super sexy application, just made to get the job done, and get it done quickly.

This is fail on HTC's part. LTE should be no more battery draining than 1xEV. It should also activate/deactivate accordingly, on the fly.
On the devices I've been using, LTE is actually more power efficient than our HSPA, or EDGE. I smell an update coming from HTC to fix that, or at least lessen the battery drain.
Hats off to the community though for providing this app.
