Question My Droid 4 keeps stalling when a message/notice is coming in

My Droid 4 keeps stalling when a message/notice is coming in.

Is there any way for the user to occupy a larger portion of the CPU when the user is actually using it? It's real pain when I can't continue to write an email or text just because a text/message/chat coming in is taking over the control of the CPU and for all intents and purposes the phone is frozen for the user.

Hello New Daddy.

This "stalling" you're describing.. are you sure the system is slowing down or is the app of widget you are using at the time in need of configuration. Aslo, are your caches (the stuff you use most) full and in need of clearing? I'd do that first.

I'd also make sure no weather or social networking widget/app is set to update frequently; sometimes they'll all try at once or overlap each other in duties while their respective services fight for resources.

It's definitely the whole system, not just the individual app that i was using. Once this phenomenon takes place, my phone freezes me out. I cannot do anything with the phone. I can't get out of the app I was using, nor does any of the hard keys work.

Would you consider doing a factory data reset?

There are two methods described there (click "show"):

Mine has been freezing up lately too. I tried, to no avail, to figure out what was behind it all and finally zeroed in on Chrome (it would 'hang' a lot, then f/c). So, I stopped using it and that helped a lot. Now I use the stock browser and close it out instead of just backing out. No more freezing. I realize that doesn't make too much sense but it seems to have done the trick.
