The detailed issues that you've described with your HTC Thunderbolt device appear to be as a result of a software issue. Have you downloaded a few 3rd party applications to your device? Some application software can affect the performance of your device. I recommend that you uninstall a few applications and then power your device off/on to soft reset it. Keep us posted.
