    Please e-mail a complete manual on how to use the Thuderbolt. I purchased one today and can’t even figure out how to turn it on, and that having been said, I need to know how to use it’s functions. I never heard of selling a cell phone without an instruction book. Land line phones even have instruction booklets that come with them. They are used for reference as welll.

    Thank you, Sallie Donner

    Can you send me a manual on how to use – R. Cook – 803 Maryland Ave. Salem , VA 24153 – I like the phone but I need to learn how to take advantage of what it offers

  3. cindy adams says

    Please send me the manual for the HTS Thunderbolt……Need some direction please on how to use this Thank You!!

  4. Roger Wilson says


    I just purchased the HTC Thunderbolt today and am SHOCKED that there is no user manual lincluded. The online manual is 350 pages pdf. ( that’s almost 3\ thick ). If you think I’m going to waste that much paper & ink then wade through all those pages you are sadly mistaken!!!! The Iphone has the manual built into it.

    Here’s the bottom line, if ANYONE is actually reading this, send me an e-mail where I can get the manual for this phone or it’s going back to Verizon faster than your head will spin. To offer this level of customer service in today’s economy is absolutely appalling. Don’t make my regret the decision in buying this phone.

  5. helena moylan says

    Please mail Nevada hard copy of the Thunderbolt 4G. I have downloaded the pdf manuel but scrolling through a 350 pages one by one is unrealistic and time consuming. I should have bought the iPhone!

  6. DAVID ROBLEY says

    I need out of desperation the complete manuel for the HTC Thunderbolt Phone. I am constantly calling Verizon for assistance on software I dont understand the operations of its own kind. Please mail me a manuel or I must send this phone back. Thank you. Address is David Robley
    244 N. Mollison Ave APT# 7 El Cajon, Ca. 92021

  7. Pamela Horton says

    How can I obtain a manual for the HTC Thunderbolt? I will never be able to use all of its features without one. Verizon sure saved money with the booklet that came with the phone.

  8. linda rodriguez-casanova says

    Plz mail me a user manual for thunderbolt cell phone. I am so exasperated trying to figure out how to use cell, but also trying to locate a hardcopy of user manual. I agree w most of the comments made by customers who purchased thunderbolt. There should b copies of user manual @ Verizon corp. stores Or @ least be able to order one from them, instead of trying to get it from on-line and getting directed to so many other sites that want you to download Or purchase. HELP!!!

  9. Char says

    There is a Thunderbolt for Dummies that I’m going to look into. One of the challenges is that the apps are not created necessarily by HTC unlike I-Phone which are centrally controlled. Nevertheless… yes I was amazed and the tiny manual that didn’t say anything.

  10. norfolk says

    my brother sent me a verizon 4g thunderbolt for x-mas for free( on the family plan!!) and he’s still trying to figure his out-we both have no manuals- can somebody e-mail me also with the whole manual? your effort is greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!

  11. jack fujimoto says

    Maya Fujimoto gave me HTC Thunderbolt. But, I need a manual. Going to the online site requires too much search and reading which is too much for these old eyes.
    Please send to 1673 Pandora Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90024, for no charge.

  12. jack fujimoto says

    My HTC Thunderbolt will no longer open. I put it on the charger and no screen appears. Battery problem? Or……

  13. Pam says

    Is there a way to change how I view my pictures. Now they are viewed starting oldest to newest and I would like to reverse this order.

  14. Debbie Dittmer says

    Please send me a manual on the Thunderbolt. Seriously the tiny manual that came with the phone is a joke!!! I don’t have time to scroll through a lengthly online manual and besides what the thing cost and the monthly bill there is no reason why it didn’t come with the phone to begin with!!!

  15. htc one x screen protector says

    Are you obtaining the Galaxy S3? Your phone’s kind of the frustration to me.


    My gave some me a thunderbolt phone having a hard time learning how to work it he told me to look the manule up on the internet.A

  17. Theresa Fucinari says

    HAS ANYONE THAT REQUESTED A “MANUAL” ON THE HTC THUNDERBOLT?? My husband bought these phones for us and I don’t have a clue how to use most of the stuff on this phone. I thought it was a joke when the sales guy gave my husband this tiny book that literally fits in the palm of my hand (and I have small hands), lol. Kidding aside, I had a bigger manual for our last phone which was a very simple phone. NO, I am NOT going to download almost 400 pages of the manual online because one I dont have 400 pieces of paper. Two can you imagine all the ink that would be used?? Three when the heck am I going to have the time to read it?!
    This is to Verizon: Can you please send me some kind of manual so I can get the most out this phone? It would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise I have great doubt I will ever get one of these smart phones again.

  18. Theresa Fucinari says

    Has anyone gotten one of these “books”? I’m not printing out almost 400 pages. I’m not using all that paper, I’m not using all that ink and I sure in the hell am not reading ALL those pages! If your listening Verizon, I definitly will NOT ever, ever, ever get a phone from you again! I get a manual that can literally fit in the palm of my hand? Im sure there is SO much I dont know about this smart phone. It’s a pity that myself or all these other people can’t take advantage of that.
