HTC Thunderbolt: Turn 4G LTE off, cure battery life problems

The HTC Thunderbolt on Verizon has been hitting the news for the wrong reasons recently. After the handset seemed to take an age to be finally released, many users have been complaining about the terrible battery life. Today we have a way for owners to turn 4G LTE off, and hopefully curing battery problems.

Many of you have been contacting us complaining about the battery life on the Thunderbolt, and you were not sure about paying $50 for the extended battery which was being offered.

Another problem was after installing the battery your phone case is now unusable. But an article over at Android Central has a method for turning off LTE on the handset.

The person who posted the information warns of the risks of turning off LTE, but has mentioned that in doing so has seen his battery life increasing to over eight hours on a full charge.

Even though this looks to cure battery life problems with the HTC Thunderbolt, wasn’t having a handset with 4G capability the main reason many people purchased it in the first place?

Use the link above if you want to try the option yourself and let us know how you get on with it.
