    Gingerbread (2.3) Release Date for Thunderbolt?

    Okay, so as a Thunderbolt owner, I love my phone and it is awesome even without Gingerbread (2.3), but I'd like to have it due to new features being added, and I like to take full advantage of my phone's features.

    Has anyone heard when Gingerbread will be rolled out for the Thunderbolt? I heard Q3 but I was looking for an exact date. Also, does anyone know is Swype will be added. I think it's ridiculous that this is a high-end ANDROID phone and it still doesn't have Swype. I mean, even the Samsung Fascinate has Swype, and it JUST got Froyo (2.2) not too long ago, and the Thunderbolt has 2.2.1 and it still doesn't have it.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    You can get Swype here: Swype | Text Input for Screens without having to wait for HTC to update your phone. Also, have you thought about rooting it? I didn't even realize the TBolt was on Froyo still, theres been so many Gingerbread leaks and that's pretty much what all of the ROMs are on now (I'm using Th3ory's ShiftAO5P rom on mine, with the new .802 radio... A lot of improvements...

    Hello Bazar6,

    I don't want to root my phone because it is the only working phone I have to use right now and if it breaks forever, I can't get another phone until 2 years from, no, so now, I'm not rooting it.

    In regards to Swype, I will try to download Swype and see what happens and will update you when I do so.

    Thanks Again,

    Vince
