Default HTC ThunderBolt

After nearly 2 years of nothing but problems with my BlackBerry Storm and several replacements I picked up the ThunderBolt yesterday. Still learning how to use it and even called a few people by accident in the process. Anyone else using this phone?

Its going to take a bit to get used to this phone but Im really liking it. I like the GPS. I had the VZ Navigator on my BlackBerry and paid $10 a month for it. The ThunderBolt has a much better GPS with no monthly charge. I took my son to Baskin Robbins last night. I just spoke the destination with nothing to type in. Then I tried it again with my home address. Im surprised it even understands me cause most voice systems cant cause I have a slight southern draw. Then it shows a photo of the building when you get there. Way more memory on this phone, and a much better camera.

There is an app for that!
I have a few IPads at school and installed several apps for some special needs kids students. You would not believe how much the kids love it, it is very accurate converting words to text. There is one app that shows an animal that repeats what you say, with facial expressions! Unbeilable stuff in new technology.

its not really an app. It's built in to the keyboard when typing. It's a microphone symbol towards the bottom left. Touch it and a screen comes up and just start talking lol

the picture effects are very cool too . click on your camera icon. At the bottom there is a little "magic wand" icon. click on that. then select ""depth of field" from the scrolling menu that opens.

Now you'll see a circle in the middle of the frame. anything inside that circle will be in focus and everything outside that circle will be slightly blurry giving the effect of a really professional picture. Here is one I did of my daughter in the field, she's my angel!. You can make the circle bigger of smaller. I had the circle a little too big, i wanted just her head in focus but caught some of the background as well. Its cool!!!!! come on SL, you need this phone.
