HTC Thunderbolt’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread update gets pulled

I suppose for guys who can never identify with the ladies on how they feel when the fairer sex is let down by our empty words and promises of delivering the world to them, perhaps the experience that I’m about to describe now might do the trick. Let’s say you’re a HTC Thunderbolt owner who has been pining after an Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the longest time already – and recently, Verizon was pleased to announce that the Gingerbread update will be delivered to your smartphone via the OTA (Over The Air) method, leaving you weeping with tears of joy as you finally have a phone that has been updated to keep pace with the rest.

Too bad this update has been revoked shortly after it has been made available, leaving you in the depths of despair, but I suppose it is for your own good. After all, Verizon has issued a statement concerning the update’s suspension below.

“It has come to the attention of Verizon Wireless and HTC that customers using the Thunderbolt by HTC have experienced a voicemail notification error with the recent software update. As a result, the update has been temporarily suspended while the companies work together to resolve the issue. Verizon Wireless and HTC anticipate the update being available soon; customers will be notified directly on their devices when it is ready for download.”

No idea on when a new update will be introduced, but it seems that you’re stuck with Froyo for the time being.
