Enable HTCSense.Com Integration On The HTC Thunderbolt

Verizon and HTC recently released the first 4G LTE capable phone on the big red’s network the HTC Thunderbolt.

The Thunderbolt is powered by a 1GHz MSM8255 processor and packs 768MB of RAM. The handset runs on Android 2.2 FroYo with the beautiful HTC Sense UI on top of it.

Even though, the Thunderbolt runs on the latest version of the Sense UI, it lacks the HTCSense.com integration which the Desire HD and the Desire Z enjoy. However, the folks over at XDA have found a way to enable the HTCSense.com integration on the Thunderbolt.

First of all, Thunderbolt owners need to download and install this APK. Once done, they can simply add an HTC Sense account by navigating to Settings > Accounts and Sync > Add Account > HTC Sense.

All the goodies offered by the Sense integration works like a charm including text message forwarding, remote GPS location, Remote ring, remote lock and backup of user’s messages and contacts. Only the remote wipe and forwarding calls option don’t work at the moment.
